Fun Finds & Happy Memorial Day!
It is so hard to believe that Memorial Day weekend is almost here!! I hope the summer doesn't go as fast.
As I was unloading my SUV out back over the weekend I noticed that most of everything I had picked up Saturday seem to match. So I ran in and got my
camera to take a picture of my grouping. I didn't even realize I had been shopping around one color, lol. I do that quite often. The trunk I found already painted white and check out the cute paper lining. I don't have to do a thing to it!!
Here is also a picture of what I did to the little boudoir lamps. I painted pink little roses on the base then added a pink ribbon and bow to the shades. I also found this white mirror and painted pink roses on it. I have them all listed on Ebay right now. They were fun projects:-)
I got a wonderful surprise in the mail this week~My friend Linda sent me some little goodies for my birthday, the little purse card is darling!! Thank you Linda you are so sweet:-)
I plan on hanging out in my camper for part of the Memorial Day weekend. For my birthday my attached man is buying me a red and white striped awning from Vintage Trailer Supply. It even has the scalloped edges like I wanted. It is a super fun site, check it out sometime if you are into vintage camper trailers. He is also repainting my metal chairs red and white to put under the awning. I have added a few things since the fall to my Cherry Camper. I am always on the look out for vintage cherry things for the camper. Here a couple of new pics of it. And I found this old red lantern at a yard sale, it was missing its guts so I put a tea light in it and it will be perfect for going back and forth to the bathroom when my sister stays next week for my birthday. We are nutty when we get together, lol!
I do hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!!
