A sweet lil' birdie heart nest, with 2 lil' birds playing Peek a Boo for you :)



Thankyou again to Karla and Beth for hosting yet another fun challenge! THANKS GIRLS ! Its always so great to meet some new blogging girls.

**** I WENT JUNKIN ****
2 days in a row ! WOOHOOOO for me.
On saturday i dragged my sis to some garage sales and yesterday i dragged poor Sam and Shane to our local Trash and Treasure Market.
A weekend full of junk, what more could you ask for.

Heres my wonderful treasures i brought home with me. All of them will be available in my Website or my Ebay shortly.

Every girl needs a corner wot-not to display some pretties on. This one will be getting a sweet n shabby paint job.
And isnt the frame gorgeous. I need to get painting dont i !


I was bummed that the 3rd table in this nest was missing but Oh Well...they will still be great when im finished with them.
The pink draw will be great for storing bits and pieces....here comes the paintbrush!


Ahhh this mirror was the best find. Its sooo heavy and beautiful. Im undecided whether to paint it and rubb it back or leave it as is....what do you think? It does have some cracks here and there.But isnt is divine!



Well looks like ive got lots to keep me busy hey!

I better hop to it then.

luv n Hugs,
Shann

I love all of your finds Shann and would definitely paint that mirror if it were mine:-). Looks like you had a fun time in the challenge!

To answer your question about grits, they are a traditional southern food made of just cornmeal. They have the consistency of porridge and are served hot, usually with eggs for breakfast. Definitely need to be lump free!!

Well well missy, that explains the no blogging over the weekend, you were out and about treasure hunting. Okay, I forgive you but I couldn't wait for you to see my new chair. I'm glad you like it.
Okay, the mirror is gorgeous!!!!! I would definitely paint it and distress it, it will make it look like a million bucks. Okay, I guess I better go, you got paintin to do!! Get goin!!

Hugs,
LeAnn :)

Congrats to Karen,~ beautiful prize!
Loved your treasures, I've got my eye on both the mirror and the frame!, it's a bit hard to tell from the photo but if the mirror was a nice vintage gold I'd leave it as is, if it's that gluggy gold finish I'd paint and rub it back.

Shannon,
Thanks for the well wishes. I have several of those gold mirrors too and one has the shelf that goes under it. I was debating wether I should paint mine too but since I have a few I think I will leave one gold and paint the others. Be sure to show us your revamped goodies. I am a horrible painter..I better whip out the spray paint LOL. Chat soon.

Congrat's to Karen for winning the lovely little bird in the sweet heart box :)

You did great on your junk shopping, wow, I can't wait to see what you make of it all. I think I would paint that mirror in an off white and ruff it up. Just my opinion :)

Yes I did get the reply email and I think I replied back LOL, I forget now..brain freeze

Siobhan said...

Hello Shannon,

Congrats to the winner of your giveaway, she is one lucky girl.

Your market finds are so very wonderful, I would leave the mirror in its original condition personally.

Siobhan.

p.s. We are off to visit Rosie in the Pet Hospital this morning...poor thing!

Kerryanne English said...

Hi Shan,
Well, you have been busy and I don't feel sorry for hubby...someone has to carry the treasures while you continue shopping - at least that's what I tell my husband. Makes them feel needed. Now poor Sam is another matter - tresure hunting no matter how you dress it up is never a fun prospect for kids.
Great finds.
Hugs,
Kerryanne
