Yesterday Shane, Sam, mum and i all went to our local Trash and Treasure markets for some serious and much needed Junkin' Time ! Well, Sam and Shane didnt need it quite so much but mum and i sure did ! Oh and i gotta tell you, my mum, The QUEEN of hagglers! Im so proud, LOL. Yep, she really knows how to get the prices down....me , not so much, im a big wuss. SO YAY to mum for the bargains of the day.
This is my little load i came home with.
This wall pocket has some chips in the leaves but geez i couldnt seriously leave her there...all alone......with noone to love her....LOL, she's just so darn pretty!
I grabbed this umm...whatever...paper weight maybe....because it is soooo pretty, im going to paint it white or maybe pink.....hmmm decisions... decisions.
This pics a bit blurry sorry (maybe that second bottle of wine was not such a good idea after all....LOL)
The rose print is actually a breakfast tray and ive already pulled it apart and started painting the frame to hang it on the wall in the back room.
I will work my magic on the knife stand and the teaspoon rack in a day or so.
When we got home i had an order waiting for lots of these in different colours etc
So i put dear Shane to work with the jigsaw and even Sam helped out a little.
Look at that concentration :)
So then i started thinking hmm ive got kitty's, now how about some bunnies...cupcakes...birdhouses....lots and lots of things!
So off i go to draw up some templates and have them waiting for Shane to cut them out for me when he gets home from work! Poor guy...and of course he will ask why i didnt just do it myself and i will say "Honey i was very busy finding a new place for my pretty wall pocket..." *wink*
Okies back to the drawing board, literally.
Love n pink smoochie kisses,
