Did my Hubby do good Ladies?

First, I think that what ever problem I was having accessing my blog is done with.....I'm going to keep my fingers, arms, legs, toes, etc... crossed that it is....it is NOT fun when you can't connect to your blog!!

Okay, Saturday my hubby went to go visit his dad and step-mother, and on his way there he stopped at a couple of sales, and at one of them he found this fabulous Vintage pie plate holder ~ I didn't think to take a before pic, but it was orginally a dull silver color, and it has these sweet plastic white beads on it, which I kept ~ but I did give it a shabby and oh-so-chic makeover by painting it...yes...my FAVORITE pink color by Krylon Fusion called Fairytale Pink ~ I LOVE this paint because you don't have to use a primer first.



I love the Filigree details on it....



And the sweet Swag design too...



A while back I purchased a set of 3 pretty Vintage rose plates, and they are perfect displayed on this stand....



Isn't this so fabulous ladies!! Sometimes my hubby doesn't do too well in finding things for me, but sometimes he can really hit the jackpot!! :) I plan to use this for the Baby Shower for my daughter to hold the sandwiches on :)



Have a great day everyone!!! Until next time sweet friends :)

I think it looks gorgeous and yes your hubby did very good snatching it up!
Your paint job just fits it perfectly as do the sweet little dishes with the vintage roses.
It will look priceless at the baby shower!

Hi Brenda, Your hubby did a good job and I like your idea for using them. Congratulations on your article in the magazine. Your pictures were amazing and they did a beautiful spread. I am a little behind on my reading. I have been a little busy lately. Have fun at your party. It will be so much fun when the little one arrives and you get to hold it. do you know if it is a boy or girl? Have a great week. Your Missouri Friend.

I would say "YES"!! your hubby did an excellent job of shopping for you!!
The hand painted plates look lovely on
the cake tiers and will be perfect for the baby shower.....be sure to take a LOT of pictures so we can all enjoy the party, too!!
I am still going back to look at the pictures in the Italian magazine you are featured in....such gorgeous "eye
candy" your whole home is!! I wish we could find the magazine over here, or that I could read Italian!!

How beautiful this piece came out!! Love the beads on it. May I ask where you buy your Krylon Fairytale pink paint?

Dearest Brenda,

As you already wrote yourself, sometimes your Hubby hits the jackpot! He sure did with this one! He knows you very well; that is evident and he also trusts that whatever dull looks, you will transform into something magazine-worthy!
Have a great weekend, lots of love,

Mariette
