Sneak Peeks

I apologize that things have been a little slow around here lately.  You might have noticed over on my side bar that I've opened an Etsy shop (and I'm also selling on Ebay).  I've had a few sales, so between listing items, packing boxes, and shipping items things have been a little busier for me lately. 

But.....I have 2 projects in the works that I hope to have completed very soon. 
Here's a little sneak peek.

Bear with me while I get my schedule adjusted to include Etsy time.  : )

Vintage Suitcase Table

Donna, over at Funky Junk Interiors, is featuring vintage suitcases in her Saturday Nite Special Link Party so I'm sharing a picture of my suitcase table.  This was originally taken for the post about the lemonade tray I made (which Donna featured on her Facebook page, thanks Donna!), but I thought I'd share it here, too.

I found the suitcase at the Restore for $3 and the luggage rack at a yard sale for $1.  It makes a great end table, and of course I love the $4 price tag.

A Sweet Little Pitcher

Whew!  The past week or two have just seemed so busy and I haven't done much as far as projects go.  Even now, my kiddos are probably wreaking havoc in my daughter's room, and I really should be getting supper started.  But for me, once I get a bee under my bonnet  a blog post forming in my mind, I just have to get it "on paper" before I can cocentrate on anything else.  Anyone else out there like that?

Anyways, today I'm {quickly} bringing you a little project that I actually did complete.  Can you believe this took me like 2 weeks?!?  So it goes with 2 little ones running around. 

I found this ugly interesting little pitcher at Goodwill for .99.  With it's looks I thought it might sit on that shelf forever, so I figured I'd breathe a little new life into it.

I spray painted it white and used Antique Gold Rub-n-Buff to "shabby" it up.

I think it might be a tad bit easier to love now.
