Some "new" things around my house....

I'm looking sooo forward to tomorrow.  You see tomorrow is Saturday, and we all know what happens on Saturdays......... You guessed it!

Yard Sales and Estate Sales!!!!!  I have been on the hunt for dinning room chairs for a while now.  The last couple of weeks  I haven't been able to find what I want but I have been finding other treasures :)

A vintage tool box that I will be the home for these flowers.

A crate that is hanging on my front porch.

I found this drawer in my dinning room hutch.  This is the silverware drawer that is part of the hutch.  I painted the sides while leaving the face of it natural.  The backing was a salmon color velvet, so I just slid a see through patterned scrap booking paper to sit up against it.  I hung it in my master bathroom and added some treasures that I had on my bathroom counter.

And lastly,  I found this bread box at our local Salvation Army.  I have been looking for one of these for a very long time.  Guess what, on Fridays this particular store has a half off sale so I got this baby for $3.50!  I cleaned it up, painted it and distressed it.  It is going to look perfect in my newly painted kitchen.

Thanks for coming by,
