Hello

I can’t believe it’s been over two weeks since I posted last. Time is flying and unfortunately I am not getting as much done around here as I hoped.  The weather isn’t cooperating with me, but I guess we are lucky that we are not buried in snow.  Just lots of rain in my neck of the woods. Thought I would share a few things I have picked up recently.

Got this cute vintage child’s chair last week while out thrifting as well as the hooked rug under it. I thought I would sell the rug, but it looks pretty good in my living room so that’s where it will stay for now.

Cute little rustic display cabinet. Found another day while out thrifting. Love the little drawers and metal pulls.

002My favorite recent find has to be these old cabinets. I got two sets of them. They came out of an old barber shop and I’ve had my eye on them for years. A new barber took over the shop and wanted to remodel, so now they are mine. They will be getting a little cleaning and some new tops and they will be awesome!

Have also been doing a little New Year’s rearranging. Here are a couple displays I have re-done in my sewing room.

The paintings and tole trays you might recognize from my bedroom. Still trying to get it put back together, but wanted a softer pallet in there. Couldn’t part with these colorful lovelies so off to the sewing room they go.

I got this dress form at Monticello in December. I love it with all the pearls and rhinestones. Although you can’t see, this dress form is really old and has a metal cage at the bottom. I have wanted one like this forever it seems.  This gal is a little more robust than my other dress forms which is fine by me.

Heading to Stars tomorrow with a few new items. I’ve been selling lots and my booth is looking pretty empty so it’s time to restock.  I’ll be back soon with some sneak peeks of things that will be coming with me to the Junk Salvation show in February. TTFN!

Hi Lisa, love your blog and check in often. Those barber sets are great, but I honestly have to say the tops are amazing! They really add a lot of vintage vibe. Hope the weather over on your side cooperates!

Lisa-
So, you are the lucky one to buy that awesome dress form at Monticello! I actually went back to take another look, and it was gone. It took my breath away too! So, I decided to buy some new cowgirl boots instead. I'm glad she went to a very good home!
xoxo,
Michelle

I think the barbers cabinets are awesome. I wish I could find something like that! I am renovating my kitchen and wish I could find patterned formica tops like that. I love your blog, keep up the great posts
