Bonjour Mes Amis!
Hope you are all having a great week so far, and if you happen to live in parts of the country that are getting pounded by snow and ice storms, I hope you are staying warm, snug and safe!
Hubby and I are still here in South Georgia soaking up the sun and warm temps, and I can't tell you what a treat that is after weeks of frigid temps back home in the Midwest!
One of my favorite things to do on vacation is to search out thrift shops. Last week we went to quite a few, and I managed to find some treasures in the making that I'll eventually be adding to my shop.
I have to apologize about the photo quality, as it's hard to take good pictures inside the motor home.
Anyway, for those of you who know me, I am always hunting for pretty picture frames and mirrors to transform with a little paint and tlc. So I was very happy to find these pieces. I really love the frame on the left, it's got some beautiful details. And I couldn't pass up that wicker mirror, even though currently is has a very bad paint job! I also really love the framed rose print! How were the thrift stores down here, you might ask? Well, let's just say that the ones that we went in left much to be desired! If I wasn't such a die hard thrift shopper, I would have walked right out of those stores, as soon as I walked in! Instead, I did manage to find some goodies while hunting thru piles and shelves of
So after bringing them all back to our "home on wheels", I gave them a very good scrubbing and had a mini photo shoot!
Isn't this vintage print of the Virgin Mary pretty? Right now the frame is a very gaudy gold, I can hardly wait to repaint it my favorite shade of creamy dreamy white!
More neat frames, just waiting to be made over!
I was super excited to find the mirror/corkboard on the right. I know what you are thinking, that thing is
Well, just look at what I did to one just like it, that I found last summer!
I painted it my signature heirloom white, and covered the corkboard in beautiful blue and white toile barkcloth, that I bought in Hawaii. So I will give the same makeover to this one, I can hardly wait!
That's it for now, I'm off to see what you all have been up to!
Thanks for stopping by!
