A new coffee table

Today I thought I would show you my new (old) coffee table. My favorite antique store Salvaged Goods had this as a table with longer legs and some wheels on the bottom and the shop owner told me cut the legs and you will get a really nice coffee table. I'm glad I did it I love it!! It's a dark green and it has beautiful chippy blue coming through. Until I find the perfect chippy white coffee table it's a keeper.

New Finds

I finally found a antique rose painting!! It's not an oil painting but an old Victorian painting on a board. It's framed and it's chippy in all the right places!! I love it!! I almost didn't buy it because it was pricey, but I knew it would bother me if I didn't buy it. I also picked up a green chippy chair along with a great white pitcher that I need to fill with flowers.

Bedroom Pic's

Hello everyone!! I purchased some new Simply Shabby Chic bedding, it was on clearance and couldn't resist. I added some pillows I already owned, the 2 floral pillow cases were from a yard sale this summer @ 25 cents a piece and they are from nautica. I thought they were so beautiful!!

I also am not a fan of my headboard, but my husband loves it, trying so hard to let him let go of it. I added my favorite tole tray and some more yard sale plates.

I hope everyone is having a beautiful fall.

Some shot's around the home this morning

Hello everyone!! Hope everyone has been well. We have had some craziness lately, like a broken elbow, and a husband away in England, and Scotland for almost 2 weeks. He is back and now and I can have a little break before work today. My 5 year old fell off the monkey bars and landed on his elbow and broke it. Of course the day after my husband left for his trip it went downhill quickly. Also this past week I celebrated my 10 year anniversary!! My husband was super romantic, surprised me with a babysitter, took me out to a nice restaurant and had a dozen white roses waiting for me at the table! I loved it!!

For today just a shot of the beautiful roses, and some shots of the living room. I also had not shown before our family room. Just a room for us to gather and watch tv and hang out. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hello everyone!! My family take a annual trip to Wildwood, NJ every summer with my husband's family, and every year I stop in Primrose, a vintage shop. It's a must for me!!

The owner of Primrose has had her home shown in the June 2005 Country Living magazine. She has a beautiful home and her shop is the same way. It's so shabby chic and romantic. I always want to buy more there but we do drive and there is no room for me to take anything with me. But I always end up buying something for my home.

Living room curtain

Hello everyone!! I hope you had a great summer! We kept it very simple. We bought a little 3 foot pool and the boys just swam in it all summer. But back to school was today! A little sad my youngest which will be 5 next week started kindergarten! My older son started 2nd grade, I can't get over how fast they grow!

I blogged last time and showed a curtain panel that I threw over my coffee table. I hung it up on a curtain rod and bought clips from Lowe's. I really love how it came out. It was just one panel but had to have it. I also just put a picture of my mantel, wanted to show my new tole tray, I just love them.

Just some new Item's

Hello everyone! I got a few thing's last week and a beautiful tablecloth at a garage sale last month for an amazing 50 cents!! It had some stains but I got them mostly out by using shoutand lot's scrubbing but I got them out. Last week I just had my 4 year old with me and my older son was with my parent's for the WHOLE week, it was amazingly quiet. But anyway I took him to some of my favorite antique store's and I found a beautiful curtain panel. It looks like a print on bark cloth fabric, but it's not it's a sheer fabric. I do planning on putting it up but for now I'm just throwing it over my coffee table. I love, love it!!!
Ok I am absolutely obsessed with tole tray's. I love finding them. I found this one on ebay, and received it just the other day. I hung it up in my dining room above the buffet. I just used those Velcro sticky thing's you can get from 3m they work great.

Garage Sale Treasures and a Antique Find

Hello everyone I hope you are having a great summer!! I have been going to alot of garage sales and thought I would share some items I bought and have put in my bedroom, including a amazing Simply Shabby Chic king size quilt I purchased for $7 and that includes the 2 shams!!! It was in amazing condition. The lady I got it from told me it was a full size quilt. When I put it on my bed I was amazed to find it was actually a KING!!! I also got a old white basket from a antique store for $6 and another tole tray!! I love it! It's a brown background with pretty pink roses with touches of green.

The Shabby Chic pillow in between was also from a garage sale last year for $1 and that included the pillow insert. The little pink rug is also a garage sale find for $5 and its from pottery barm kids. It absolutely amazes me what I find for my home and my family at garage sales. I even get my husband involved which makes it a fun family thing to do.

I also just want to say thank you to all of my new followers!! So exciting to see all the other women who love Shabby CHic!!! Who doesn't!!

I mentioned before that I was at Posh on Palm and bought a table, well I'm going to show you today where I put it. The 2nd table I bought about a month ago. I absolutely fell in love with both of them and had to have them.

I hope everyone is having a great summer!!
