Hello Blogland!! I hope everyone’s week has started off well!!
I came home from work today feeling low- I really missed Molly walking with me to the mailbox when i got home from work and head butting me! My sadness soon flew away when I opened the box and found a package from the wonderful Vix!!! I couldn’t wait to open it!!
Oh how she has SPOILT me!! A cornucopia of delights and she definitely has got my “style” down!!
There is an AMAZING vintage gingham dress. It fits everywhere but the boobage!! I’m going to shorten it into a blouse and use a piece in the back to make a gusset so the gals won’t feel like they are being squished to death!
She sent the most stunning jewelry from India–all in autumn tones. I’m planning outfits around them!
Even MORE goodies:
I was truly touched and blessed by this gift!! Thank you so much Vix!!
And now to the makeover part of the post!! I pick up lot’s of home decor stuff at yardsales and thrifts. almost everything in our home is thrifted or given to us. Sometimes you just have to see the potential in an item–in other words-see beyond the tacky or ugly to the good bones underneath.
I’m a firn believer in there’s no ugly too much that a good coat of spray paint can’t improve!! Here are two of my makeover magic “wands”:
I picked this ceramic pheasant up for a quarter. He was an odd pink and mint green color–which isn’t the natural coloring of a pheasant!! Look what some paint and glaze did!! I display him with some fake leaves in the fall.
I picked this 1973 ceramic fruit tree and pedestal stand up for a buck. It was just a bit too “dark” for me. Spray and glaze-new dining room centerpiece!!
Hope this might inspire you to look at that tacky figurine at the thrift in a new light!!
Chat with you tomorrow nite!
