I wish I had one for everyone because it's such a great cookbook and story book
I hope you enjoy this cookbook even if you don't cook the stories are wonderful  . If you ever get to the bakery be sure and tell them you won their cookbook on my blog, they will love it            


Saturday morning I went to a few yard sales with my neighbor
and I found a couple things I can use and then I found this little table for $4.00 and just couldn't pass it up. The original varnish is still on it and it is all crackled up , but I don't need another table in my small house so will play with it a while , like try to paint it white then put it in my yard sale, sounds silly but it's called self entertainment LOL
I like the round pedestal  a lot , wish I had some of that Annie Sloan paint all the gals are talking about



then I found a sea shell wind chime for $1.00 and a  large flower pot that has a crack in it but I like the lion heads on it and I figured the crack will just help it drain when I over water , right?

  I put miniture zinna 'sin it                                                                       

I hung this first on my wood fence with my old rusty tin flag but then moved it under my tree by my patio where I hang my lace curtains , that reminds me I need to get them out , because no rain in the forecast

Also I wanted to let you all know there is a huge outdoor flea Market in St Louis Missouri Monday the 28th
It's called Gyspy Caravan 
check it out and meet me In St Louis

    That table looks like it is pretty old but in great shape. If you don't have any chalk paint you can always try flat white latex house paint, then wax sit and rub on a light coat of gel stain in the areas you want to distress. Look pretty similar but you need to test it out on something first.

    The shell chimes almost looks like a rain chain for the gutter. Wonder if it would work the same?

    Thanks for sharing at my party this week!

  13. Congrats to the winner, how lucky. Thanks for sharing this great post with all your wonderful treasures! Have a great week.


  14. You brought home some wonderful bounty from your treasure hunting escapades. I bet chalk paint would look fantastic on that side table. You should try it out, and then show us the results.
