Red paint & glitter .......

 Wooden candle lids made perfect bases.

Mountains of ruffled crepe paper, jute, pretty bows, lace and so much more.

Mary Poppins

Yesterday, with husband and bag in tow.... 
I felt a little like Mary Poppins with 
her carpet bag while going through the 
Junk Hippy Roadshow.

I loaded that darling bag full of goodies.  
I can't believe what all I was able to pack in there.
 Lots of crochet pieces, doilies and a even a 
bolt of eyelet trim.

Jewelry, frames, prints, two bed skirts, a lamp shade, a beautiful crochet trimmed shower curtain and some awesome rusted garden fencing.

Once home, just like Mary Poppins I kept pulling out
one treasure after another out of that bag.
It was a  
Hope yours was as well!!

Oh I was so much fun.
Great vendors who had just about everything.


My friend Becky: In My Vintage Dreams and
York Estate Sale had a booth set up at the Roadshow.
As always her booth was full of treasures...
you can always count on Becky to have such a 
great variety of goodies.

Honey do....

Mister, Mister helped with a fast before & after today.

 My flower cart was in need of some new paint and top....he looked no further than our back patio.  

Our friend who knows that I will take just about anythingleft this pallet on our patio last week.
Husband was less than thrilled.


However, when he noticed today that it would fit perfectly on top of my cart meant he didn't have to spend a dime or build a new top himself.

Now, just
trying to decide whether to add a tiny bit of gingerbread trim?
With some help from picmonkey
this is what it would look like....

Some sanding and a little paint and it is as good as new.
