New makeover , GW finds and other goodies

Hi girls,

As you know, I was moved recently and my new house had a breakfast nook area .... but guess what, I only have a table and I put it on the dinning area. After my moving, one of my friends gave me 3 new "old chairs" that she had. They are antiques with more than 104 years old.
They are beautiful. I love them!!!!

Last Thursday, I returned to my home and I can't wait to start with "TS shooping". During my first day "thrifting", I found the following pieces ( see below).

Finally, a table to used with the old chairs. Here is the table before,
And now,

What do you think about my last makeover??? And the best is the price only...... $15.00.

Also, I found two new crocks ($3.00 and $8.00 respectively), a candlestick from Williamsburg Pottery ($2.89) , a old Ball Jar ($4.00), a wood bowl rack ($2.39) and a pineapple for 49 cents.


Also, I want to say thank you to Kareen and Vicki, for the first giveaway that I won and my Textile swap goodies respectively. I need to say sorry to you due to my pictures came too late, due to my vacations. First, I receive this beautiful wool on cotton pillow from Kareen http://thepaintedquilt.blogspot.com . I display it in my family room. Love it!!! Thank you, Thank You ... Amazing Job!! These pictures definitely don't do it justice. It is really awesome.

And this is the gift box that I received from Char's Textile Swap. My box arrived on time , but I was out ( until this week, I was thinking in the goodies inside the box ). I was so surprised by the beautiful things that I received from my swap partner Vicki Hardcastle, she is a Fiber artist from Hardcastle Folk Art & Eureka Springs Rug Hooking Camp, http://thehogscaldholler.blogspot.com.

Thank you so much!!!! Can't wait to display my new goodies around my house.

Sorry for the long post, I hope you enjoy it...
Bye, bye and see you soon girls,


  1. Your table looks great and I love those chairs. As for the TS finds... you definitely found quite a few prim goodies. I can see that wooden shelf type thing having a great prim makeover.

  2. Wow, those chairs are just beautiful. They were made back when furniture sayed together...how wonderful and the table turned out great.

    Love your winnings too.


  3. Wow. You had a good week. Your thrift finds were terrific, and such good bargains. Your winnings and exchange items are beautiful too. Apparently you are just one lucky lady right now. Blessings to you.

  4. Wonderful chairs. You did a fantastic job on them and they go so well with your table.
    Great finds and treasured goodies too. Such a lucky girl!

  5. Love all your pics of your finds. I love heading out to all the TS and antique shops looking for ideas and/or bargins.

    We have had several shops close in our area lately. I guess I will have to find some new places.
