To paint or not to paint

I love these beautiful wood carvings. They were made in Italy. But I can't seem to decided if I should paint them or not. I think they would look great with a shabby white distressed paint job but I also think they are fabulous just the way they are. Tell me what you think. I would love to know.

Vintage lamps

Hi everyone. This is my collection of vintage lamps and I have decided to sell some of them in my ETSY shop. It's hard to let go. If it wasn't for Mr. Enchanted my house would look like a hoarder house. Well maybe not that bad, but I do love all my collections. :) If you are interested I will be listing them in the next few days. You can find the shop link on my side bar. Thank you and have a wonderful day.

Upcycled wagon and foot stool

Happy Sunday everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend. My weekend has been filled with cleaning and organizing still. So much to do!!!! I have a couple of upcycled projects I did last year that I never got around to posting about. I thought now would be a good time. I am dedicating myself to doing more this year and posting about it. ;)

This was an old wagon that was falling apart as I took of the top I saw that the 
wheels and bottom frame were still in good condition. So I stained my
Farmers Market crate with Minwax wood finish stain in Dark Walnut to give
it a old rustic look. Simple easy upcycled project. 


I found this foot stool at a yard sale and of course I had to paint it white. Then it took me forever 
to find a fabric I liked until I went on my trip to The Longest Yard Sale. So much
awesome stuff I wanted to buy it all. Lots of beautiful old homes and wonderful vintage 
and antiques for sale at the hundreds of yard sales along HWY 127 stretching through 6 States.
I only saw a fraction of it and it was amazing. Among the treasures I scored were
some burlap coffee bean sacks which were perfect for my foot stool. 


Thank you for stopping by.

Winter Whites

 I have been reading a lot of inspirational quotes and I wanted to share one with you.

To live a creative life we
must lose our fear of 
being wrong.

I am in love with all the winter whites and grays.
So I decided to keep some of my 
Winter Christmas decorations up for now.

Bedroom redo

Bella and I did her room with an equestrian theme because right now she is all about horses. It's more like a redo. She didn't need new furniture so I just moved some of it around and added some horse shoes I painted and some horse pictures, trophy's and toy horses and of course new sheets with little horses on them. We (Bella) decided to put up her Christmas tree too. "I love it Mom." Is what she said and that made me smile.  I live vicariously through her when it comes to her room. It's the room I would have wanted when I was growing up. I am very lucky I can do that for her.

Thank you for stopping by have a wonderful day.
