Random-ness

Hello everyone! Yes, I am still around, just not so much here on my blog. You can usually find me more on Instagram, and occasionally on Facebook, lol.

Today I wanted to share with you a few random photos, featuring some new vintage treasures, and my latest OOAK pillows that I have listed currently on eBay.

First up is this Gorgeous pair of Vintage Italian Florentine tole lamps that I found at our local Goodwill a few weeks ago. I got them both for just $6, can you believe it !! I couldn't get them in my cart fast enough, lol. Goodwill now cuts off the plugs on all old lamps, but I would have had them rewired anyways, which I had my hubby do :)


I've been on the search for the perfect shabby vintage bench, and found this one at a local Antique mall. It was originally red, which you know That would just not do, lol, so I first painted it a soft pink, then this perfect shabby green, allowing the pink to show thru .... LOVE how it turned out!!


On Memorial Day, there is this HUGE Flea market just north of us, at Burley Park, and managed to find a few treasures to bring back home with me ...


Here is a little something I made for myself ... love this beautiful Jubilee fabric from Rachel Ashwell, and ordered a couple of yards of it to make this 26" Euro sham ... LOVE IT !


These next 2 photos of my newest pillows that I've created and listed on eBay, The link for my eBay shoppe is up near the top of my sidebar, if you would like to hop over and check them out...



Well, this is some of my Random-ness for you today, lol. We are currently working on re-doing our Dining Room, and hope to have things finished in a month or so, and of course, will post pics here for you all to see when it is finished... This room is taking longer than what it did for our Living room, as there is more work that has to be done to restore the original hardwood floors in it.

Until next time sweet friends !!

A Little Living Room Makeover

Hello everyone, I'm a few days late on doing this post, as I had planned to have it done and up this past weekend, but was so busy doing other things, that I just didn't have the time I needed to work on it. But now I do, and so here it is. When we purchased this home 21 years ago, I never knew that there were original hardwood floors underneath the carpet in our living and dining rooms. It wasn't until a couple of months ago, while in the basement, that I happened to look up and could see that above where the living room was, you could see the tongue-and-groove wood! Why did I not see or notice that before??? Anyways, I informed the husband that I wanted to remove the carpet and redo those gorgeous floors waiting to be seen, and about 2 weeks ago we went about doing just that. First, of course, we removed the carpet, then the 2 layers of padding, and there they were!! I was just so happy and excited to see them all cleaned and shined up! First, of course, I had to remove all those bazillion little staples from the padding, which took me an entire afternoon to do. The following morning, hubby rented a floor sander and proceeded to sand them down and clean them up. Next, a coat of oak stain was applied, and as soon as it was dried, hubby put down the first of 2 coats of poly to bring out the beautiful shine (we sanded the first coat before applying the second. And 3 days later we were able to put the furniture back in.

Below is the photo of the living room with the dark raspberry pink carpet.



This photo shows the floors before sanding.


And here is a photo taken after the 2nd coat of poly was applied.


These next 4 photos are with everything all put back into place :)





I am LOVING these gorgeous hardwood floors!! Bet ya can't tell, lol :)
In a month or so we will be working on doing this same thing in the Dining Room, and I can't wait!! I'll be sure to post photos once it is all finished.

Until next time sweet friends!!

Linking up this week to Shabbilicious Friday:

Yes I am still here!

Hello everyone in Blogland! Yes, I am still here, just haven't done a new post in quite some time. We've been working on a new change in our living room the past several days, and will be sharing a few photos of that in my next post. I'm super excited about it and can't wait to share it with all of you. If you follow me either on Facebook or Instagram, then you already know what those changes are...shhh, don't tell!

Today, I thought I would share with you what I currently have available in my eBay shoppe. The link for it is over on my sidebar.

First up, I decided to give my hand at creating some beautiful rose crown/wreaths. These are so much fun to make, and you can display them just about anywhere or anyhow you choose. The first photo is the first one that I listed, and it has already been sold but the 2nd and 3rd photos are ones that are listed and available. They are made with beautiful large and small parchment roses.






These next 2 photos are a couple of my One-of-a-Kind pillows that are currently listed. Love the Vintage rose fabric used on this first one! Sadly, I used the last of this fabric ... hope to find more of it one day.


Love creating pillows with beautiful graphics! Many of the graphics I use are purchased from other very talented sellers, and some are ones that I have from my personal collection. This Graphic I found on Etsy. It is so sweet!


I'll be back soon with our newest Living room transformation!!
Until next time sweet friends!!
