Vanity Chair

I bought a simple round tablecloth at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago with no real plans for it.  You know how that goes.  I think I paid fifty cents for it.  Here is what I did with it:   

I draped it over my metal vanity chair and gathered it together in the back.  Then I pinned the white rose on.
You can see that I put a white toilet seat cover over the seat and voila - a cute vanity chair. You can see other Show and Tell items at

Kitchen Utensils

This is just a part of some old kitchen utensils that I have displayed in my
kitchen. I've picked them up at yard sales, estate sales, antique stores
and some were given to me. Kind of fun, especially the shadow box
with the old recipes and labels in it.  
Be sure to check out
or click on the bird on my side bar to see other fun vintage things.

I went to this Garage Sale

and look what I found!  I've been looking for a tea cart and I found this one for $10.00.  I like embroidered pillows and this one matches the blue in my room.  And I have a plan for the white tablecloth that does not involve a table.  I will show you later after I do it and take pictures.   The teapot is beeauuutiful!  I wish it had cups to go with it.   I spent less than $20.00 for all of it.
Keep on hunting - you never know what treasure you will find!

A tisket, a tasket, I've got a writing basket ~

I was inspired by a few "letter ladies" I know to use a picnic basket to hold my writing supplies.  Their baskets are beautiful,  and I was gifted with a basket of my own to decorate and use.  So here is what I've done with it - Thank you Debbie and Rebecca for sharing your creative idea with me.
