My Treasures

Aren't these neat? These are just cut out of plywood, and I think the glass stones are placed in some sort of paintable silicone. It is then stained. This booth was in one of the Arbors and packed with people. Maybe that's where all the people were!
I have a weakness for soaps. I buy these almost everytime I go. All the soaps are handmade and are located in the Walkway by the Creek.

I have plans for these! I am considering the show at the Country Club this year.
I bought these cabinet doors for 2 bucks each! I plan on painting some of these with chalkboard paint.
Since it was too hot to buy soup, I bought fruit dip mix and spinach artichoke dip. We ate the artichoke dip and strawberry dip for supper! Yum!

Okay, this is my most treasured piece. It looks like a desk, but it extends to a table! I have been looking for a small table to go against the wall in my living room to put a lamp and the laptop on. I sanded it today. Now I have to decide how to paint it.

Ashley called the other day and said she wanted a real chest of drawers for her room. Last year we bought just rubbermaid drawers because she had a big closet to put them in. Well, Cindy and I found this and the table. The table was marked 49.50 and the chest was marked 59.50. Cindy bargained and I got both pieces for......are you ready? $75.00!!!! The chest below is the new look after I painted it today! I will eventually get new pulls, but I painted them silver.

I love your goodies! We were in Canton during July and I fell in love with those crosses too. They are so unique and different so I just had to have one. I desperately want a paddle! They are too cute. Are you taking orders yet?

$75 for both -- good WORK! I love those types of tables and am looking for one that folds up to more of a sofa table size.

That dresser is my favorite! I wouldn't even get new pulls for it, the original ones painted silver look great as is :)

First of all your jeweled pieces are so pretty. Next your table is a great find. The fact that it extends is perfect for additional uses. Happy bargain hunting.

Beautiful finds. The table is wonderful and isn't it great what black paint will do for an old dresser! I enjoyed your post and look forward to visiting often

Many thanks....
