Alfresco Dinning

What could be more relaxing than outside dinning. I love to use my vintage table cloths, mixed matched china, and tea lights in old ball jars. Here's to a lovely evening dinning outside!

Repurposed Base Board Project & A Few Garage Sale Finds Redos!

I apologize for being MIA, my computer monitor went out along with my ipod touch and air conditioner. Thank God the air conditioner was only a $200.00 dollar fix. I am using my daughters computer monitor and I have to unplug it every time I want to use it. I haven't taken the touch in but, I am hoping it is an easy fix. The screen went black???? Onto better things, I purchased some old floor molding and this is what I have been making out of it! Hanging flower vases! I used a 12 inch piece of molding, painted it, and attached an old vintage bottle with 18 gauge wire and VIOLA you have an instant flower vase.

I found these two beauties at the GW. They were already painted a darling light pink. Unfortunately, the pink did not show up very well in my pics. They were absolutely darling except for the hideous seat covers.
So, I ran through the skirt isle and found this hip and happening print that would fit the seats perfectly.

I have always loved chicks and hens and a very sweet person gave me these to me and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them. I planted them in an old kitchen strainer and placed them in the garden on an old school chair. To sweet!

Finally, this is a little cabinet that I picked up over the weekend and I simply sanded and painted it!



Take care!
