Night and DAY! Baby girl looks like a new little girl this morning. She looks like herself. Her coloring is back in her face, the dark circles are dissipating and she feels so much better. Thank you all so much for your prayers, your sweet notes and your comments. I am so blessed that I can just throw out a personal call for prayer and instantly, the Father is hearing requests from his people not just in my state but from all over the world! It’s amazing to me! I am so thankful for each one of you.
I had a pretty fun day today. I sold two pieces of furniture at the shop that I am praising the Lord for. I had not sold much until today and I was getting a little worried! I sold my cute little yellow sofa and a desk. I was also able to get out of the house and go to the gym. On the way, my sister, Katie, asked me to stop by her house to take a few pictures of her table scape she had done with some of her Lucketts finds. She was having some girls over for a lunch.
Mom and I got Katie hooked on garage sales the day she bought her first house. We took her to one and then there was no holding her back. She has done such a great job decorating her home with an eclectic mix of vintage and new finds, all with a traditional flair.
One of the first things Katie went for was the grain sacks at Lucketts. You can’t find them here in Birmingham and it seemed as though they were everywhere up in the New England area. She took one sack she bought for 6.00 and layered it on top of a piece of burlap, scrunching it up in the middle. She had found a plethora of mason jars under her old house that the original owner had just left there. She cleaned them and has been using them for vases. I like how she put them in a grouping of four. It had a more dramatic effect than just one vase. The flowers are sprigs of asparagus fern from her yard and just your basic grocery store flowers. They look lovely don’t they?
The table was very simple yet elegant. For each of her guests, she put a little copper pot full of ivy next to their place setting as a gift for them to take home. The copper pots she scored at a yard sale for a buck a piece a few summers ago. She tucked them away, knowing she would use them for such as time as this.
She is forever picking up napkins and napkin rings and other entertaining necessities at yard sales for a song.
I couldn’t help but take a picture of this potting table my dad made. I always love everything he puts together out of free stuff. He made this out of scrap lumber for nothing. The old wrought iron pieces in the back…..yep…yard sale for 5 bucks. The galvanized bucket was a buck, and the pot….I can’t remember how much, but it was from a yard sale too!
I am pretty sure she pulled this watering can out of a storage building at my brother in laws camp house. I love the fern snuggled down inside.
I love that she saw the beauty in this piece and re purposed it as a flower pot.
I had a hard time resisting these mouth watering treats. I had to take a picture of them sitting so pretty on this depression glass cake stand. YUMMO!
I hope you all have had a great weekend. Can’t wait to be back with you again soon!
