Today I will be sharing photos from my home! 
Of course it is always changing as I work on different 
areas and rearrange, paint and make different displays. 
This photo is from my Treasure Hunting Tuesday....
things that are not going into my booth yet.
The sweetest Shabby Lampshade found a home on my .50 cent crystal lamp.
I just adore these rose plates! 
I bartered with my friend Lorena to get them!
I also found this sweet darling Cherub dish, I think that will go in my bathroom.
The teacup and saucer was only $2.50 at our Main Street Booth, I could not contain 
my excitement over the bargain!!!! Also, notice my pretty new tablecloth that I picked up for $1.~ I have been dying to have one of these pretty tablecloths.
This is the top of my cabinet! I just love the birdhouse, handmade and very wonky!

This is part of my finished white kitchen cabinets! This is the cabinet above the stove. More to come of the cabinets soon!
 Sweet pink apron ~ Libraray Thrift store find for $2
 My pretty tablecloth!
I love this lamp, I found it at a flea market in Ozark and sprayed the base white... ooooh la la!
Darling Tea Cart I got at a garage sale for $3 , I still need to find plants for it!
A pot outside my house with wild shabby flowers!
Probably my best find ever and all you thrifty gals will appreciate this.... FREE! If I would just haul it off.... I was HAPPY to! The whole set took two trips but well worth it!
A darling box embellished by my new friend Cheryl!
Check back to see more pics from my house!
Have a Lovely Evening ~
Throw a pebble in... you would be surprised at how big the wave of change will be!

my dear friend and fellow treasure hunter Lorena!
Finally I remembered to bring my camera and here are so pictures of my darling flea market booth!

Florentina's Restaurant is now OPEN!
I am so proud to announce the opening of the new Italian Restaurant in Branson, MO!!!
Located off Hwy 76 on Gretna Rd in the old Pasta House Building open for lunch and dinner no reservation needed! 
Florentina's features excellent Italian food at a super reasonable price in a family friendly dining environment. Chef K has created a menu that will tempt your taste buds and keep you coming back for more! Also, check out their newly installed brick oven pizza, my kids favorite is the pizza of course!

Garden Inspired Hallway
Sweetest handmade pillows are the perfect
accent for this chair
The prettiest vintage romantic window made by my dear 
friend Sue.

Love these two pillows I discovered from a wonderful crafter gal down in Arkansas


This is the new display at the end of my hallway, I am sure it will change but for now it is a nice bright little garden spot ready for spring!
I will begin stocking some of these darling handmade pillows in my booth, I will let you know on what day, they will be very reasonable and oh so cute for spring!
Oh yes, and the new Romantic Country Magazine is out for Spring!
 Love it! Great ideas for your sweet romantic cottage!

Shabby White Bench Makeover Story!
Before~ 
This darling bench is so sweet and primitive but was left with a sad spotty paint job.

After~
With a fresh coat of sparkling new semi gloss white paint it is a spring time must have ready to be displayed inside or out!
The perfect size to move around and make seasonal displays with once again so tempting to keep, however this cute little shabby bench will be headed to Main Street flea market today to replace a shabby sewing table I sold!
Treasure Hunting Tuesday!
Wow! I was out and about today and it was literally coming up roses! Scored some Romantic Homes magazines for .50 cents along with rose plates, faux cake and much more!
I found some super deals I will share with you, my favorite being a baby picture from  1912 of Baby Roy.


I adore this hand painted plate with roses and the tiny rose salt and pepper shakers~
  Darling white vintage iron chair with a rose print fabric I have two of these and I need to find a permanent home for them.... I am stalling taking these down to my flea market booths, they are just so pretty!
I found this sweet hand made pillow at Fall Creek Farm. The Roses on the side are handmade with ribbon, so sweet!
Check back for more treasures and home makeovers!

My teeny tiny .50 cent light cover makeover...
Before
After, can you believe this incredible deal....
a Hand painted Ceramic Cottage Switch plate for a couple of quarters!!!!!!
 Oh my, I just love treasure hunting!

~Shabby Green Cabinet Makeover!~
This is part of the before picture, originally this cabinet was a light wood with ugly black imprints from the original store display.
Before picture with white primer.
This is the after picture after two coats of shabby green paint I then sanded the edges and finished it off with a dark wood stain to give it an aged look and to protect the finish! Delightful!
This is the darling after picture! Normally, I would have shabbied it white, but I am feeling the springy green. This could be decorated a million ways, dressed up or down, I just love the Its a wonderful life sign, got it for a mere .25 cents at a tag sale this weekend. 
This darling shabby table will be for sale for $32.50 in Cadwell's Flea Market in downtown Branson.
Hope you enjoyed this fun little makeover, stay tuned for my next project!

Flea Market Treasures


Darling Shabby Hoosier Cabinet
I love this sweet Shabby Hoosier Cabinet, it is probably my biggest splurge and I still got it $100 less than the asking price. It has its original flour sifter, enamel top  and bread rack. So sweet in my kitchen.
This cabinet is for sale~ Darling old hoosier with chopping block and wonderful deep drawers and stenciled cabinet windows!

My pretty cabinet with lots of delicate rose dishes. The lamp I found this weekend and the birdcage was a great deal from a friend which I then painted white! 

Sweet little Shabby Birdhouse found at the Fall Creek Farm Flea Market! I cannot tell you how much fun I have shopping for pretty decorative items! Please stay tuned I am painting my kitchen cabinets white!
