It's been a while...

I've been wanting and wanting to post and just had other things going on.  I've had some great pcs. that have come and gone and I never got to show.  Well anyway enough about that.  Excited to show off a nice pc. that my husband and I purchased today.  He's actually the one who saw it first. 
We bought it for our office.  It's just what I was looking for and for $50 it definitely was what I was looking for.  Great huh?
This is a pc. that I just painted.  I was a bit worried about selling it because I paid more than I normally would.  But guess what, It sold today, whooohoo!  And I did alright on it.  I just put it in Thurs. Love it!
Now here are just some pcs. that I've found and thought were cute.
This was a beautiful chair and very comfortable, believe it or not.  This actually sold today too!
Sweet little commode.  Would look good painted, but the green looks original and in good condition.  I just couldn't do it.  We'll see if anyone still likes that color.  I think it's great!
Well I'm so glad I got to post today.  I've really been wanting too and it's just nice to share these things.

Two posts today...

Very excited to share that we purchased land in the lakes region in NH!! Whooo!
We are making it into a family camp.  It's on a river and it is absolutely beautiful.
We split the land with my brother and sister in law (their dog Missy) this is our toast to it, sitting in the river.
The sunning rock
The entrance, there is a little creek running underneath a bridge at the beginning.
Clearing out for our RV's.  Looking so good so far.
We are so lucky. Very excited about it! Can you tell : )

A little paint and love

Some trash to treasure pieces
Like to show what you can do with a little paint and love.
Keep making uglies into pretties!  Recycle, Reduce, Reuse!!!

Hello, it's been a while.  Here are some items I got this weekend.  It was slim pick'ns, but found a few things.  I was actually camping in the RV.  We went to my best friends family campground.  They are not just any family, they were like my second family growing up.  It was a wonderful time and I got to visit with a bunch of them. 
My girlfriend and her two kids, we were walking to the creek.
It's a beautiful pc. of land.
My husband and I took a wonderful bike ride, the hills were awful, but it was great.
Oh yes, so like I said I did get a few thing on our way home.  We stopped at a sm. flea market.  We are limited to where we can stop with a 31' RV. 
Have a nice place for those pickets in my kitchen.
Hope you're enjoying your summer.  I sure am.

Spring Fling Flea market was a success!

Raised about $1254 for the Bedford animal rescue!  It was a gorgeous hot weekend.
Started off our early morning, bunch of hillbillies.
My sister in law Joanna, owner of Second Avenue Consignment.  This is our tent to sell items for the animal rescue.
Our buddy Ernie a consigner in the shop.
John a great guy, helps one of our top consigner's in the shop.  All in all it was a great weekend and oh ya the best part.  Sat. the animal rescue brought a dog named Spud and he was adopted later on that day.  Now that is what the whole thing is all about. 
Enjoy your day!

Good afternoon

Hello, Just would like to do a little update today. I'm very busy this week gathering for a flea market.  I work at Second Avenue Consignment in Amherst, NH. So if you are ever this way there are a bunch of excellent consignment stores (Our's being the best) with in spitting distance (pardon the expression).
Well anyway we are having our annual spring fling flea market out on our lawn.  My sister in law and her husband (owners of the store) love animals, they have 3 beautiful labs.  They are my nieces and nephew. 
They have the flea market to raise money for the Bedford Animal Rescue.  It is becoming very popular, I believe this is our 4th.
If you'd like to see they're shop online it's, please visit.
In it are a few of my pieces and this is the latest.
So I feel better that I've updated, but need to get some more done before my cutie pie Bray wakes up from his nap. 
Enjoy your day!

Some cool new pcs. I aquired.  Great Arts & Craft style desk.
A beautiful bureau. Painted it black and came out nice.

This little cabinet was hard to part with.
Been keeping busy, painting, watching Braydon my grandson 2 days a week.  Love it so much! Second time around you realize that this time doesn't come back so you savor it more.  Things will get painted and things will get done, but you don't get these wonderful young years back.
Also trying to get a bedroom decorated downstairs.  Coming out cute so far.
Enjoy your days!!

Very lucky...and blessed!

We are very lucky to be able to take our adult children on a wonderful vacation to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic.  And fortunate enough that we all get along so great we want to go on vacation together.  We are also taking our 2yr old grandson and my parents are coming, who we also love and enjoy to be on vacation with.  We have always gone on vacation with my parents ever since the kids were little.  Yes we are truly blessed!

Some New Finds

Not exactly new, but was a nice find it was very hard to let go of.  Oh well can't keep everything.

This was a great find.  I used some Howard's restore and it came out really nice.  Beautiful piece!  White would even look better, but if it doesn't need it, I don't need another project.
Just finished this, came out nice.  Great piece for the right person.
These a the next project.  I think they look cool as they are!  There a bit rough, so I'll get some paint on there and.....scuff them up again....not so much this time.
This next piece is one of the coolest things I've found.  Love it.  Would like to paint the edges back white, scuff and put a nice pc. of glass on it.
I'll show the results, going to take some elbow scraping the rust. and the sign is really in there so I can't take it off. : (
Enjoy your projects!

Back on track with camera

Finished Projects and so many more...
The painted and sanded Ethan Allen for $25 sold for $199 (quick too!)
Found on the side of the road. My heart was pounding of course because you just don't find things on the side of the road anymore.  And luckily I had my daughter's car so I could grab it.  You bet I would have called someone to help me before I just left it there.  I had to paint the inside which has 6 shelves and it was a dk. orchid I scuffed it up and fell in love.  It's really adorable I wish I could keep it, but off to the shop it goes.  More finished projects to come...

Terrible not keeping up with my blog.

Hello, really the only excuse I have is the problem with getting a new camera.  And now that I have finally purchased one, I can't figure out why I can't get the pictures on my computer and to the blog.  My techy sister is home from VA and is helping me tomorrow.  I'm sure it's simple, but damned if I've been able to figure it out.  I've been pretty busy, going to estate sales, and yard sales, because the weather has been beautiful for a winter in New England.  I just got a great connection with a friend from high school.  His dad owns a property that has a bunch of gorgeous furniture in the garage and he's letting me buy some.  My heart was pounding going through it.  Mike and Franky from American Picker would have enjoyed it even.  I really admire all the famous blogging woman.  I just don't know how they do it all.  I'm just happy to be in the business (consignment) and lucky enough to have a wonderful husband and family that support my junking hobby.  Right now I have an Ethan Allen hutch (dk wood out dated, $25) in my dining room I'm painting.  Antique white shabby it up, it will be great.  It's a sickness!  Anyone else have it : )
