SOLD !!!! THANK YOU!!!!!

HI all, hope everyone is well. THe weather is icky and rainy outside, although we do need the rain badly. I decided to paint a couple of things today, one is a vintage lunch box. It has been a while since i came across one of these and i love how they come out. Isnt it just amazing what you can do with old stuff that people have tossed aside. I have a friend that does alot of dumpster diving and you wouldnt believe the stuff he finds. I personally have never been in a dumpster befor but i guess if i spied something exciting i might. I be sayin, HONEY BOOST ME UP IM GOIN IN!!!

Any way, the other thing i have worked on today is my favorite, it is an old wood telephone box that i found at the 127 sale. I just cannot resist anything that has that old chippy look to it. I dont know what it is about it but i love it. THe Top and the bottom of the box are painted but i left the rest of the old box in its natural state . THE chippy part just seemed to add just the right touch for me. The box would be great for storage of all kinds of things like keepsakes, as a candle box, or whatever a persons needs are. I have both pieces listed on ebay.Hope you enjoy the pictures!!!

Bought these pretty vintage roses pieces for 2.00 each!!!!

Bought this vintage casket jewelry box for 5.00 !!!!

This is a princess headboard i bought and painted for my grandaugters room. I am going to slightly distress it and try to get it up in her room soon.... We were going down the road and i caught it out of the corner of my eye and told my hubby STOP!!! GO BACK I SAW MY BED!!
I have been looking for 6 months for the right bed and finally found it!!!

What a great time we had at the worlds longest yard sale. You had to see it to believe it! There was so much stuff it boggled the mind. If you are a yard sale lover then you would be in heaven! Have you ever seen a horse make ice cream? We went to an amish community and they had a horse on the cntraption like a treadmill and as the horse walked it churned the ice cream. My grandaughter and hubby enjoyed it. if you have never been you should try to go some time. It was extremely exhausting but so much fun. Here are a few pictures of the sale and some of the things i bought;

I Have Been Baking!!!!!!

I met the nicest lady a few days ago while taking a peek around at other blogs. Her blog is wonderful and she is super nice!!! While scrolling through i got to the part of her blog that had a recipe for orange cookies that looked heavenly!! I told her i was going to try and make them and i took the time today to do just that. Mine are not as pretty as hers but they taste wonderful! My husband loves anything that is orange flavored so i thought he might like these and he loves them. I did tweek the recipe a bit and divided the ingredients in half adding the orange to one half and making the other half lemon. Either way they are sp yummy!!!. They remind me of something you would enjoy having at an english tea party. They would be great for Christmas or a wedding shower too but my favorite way is to just snuggle up on the couch with a favorite cup of tea or a good cup of coffee. Try them if you get a chance . You will find her blog here and can scroll down it to get the recipe. Enjoy!!
