Vintage Decor & More

Had a busy day at the shop today reorganizing and restaging. The owners thought I was a little bit crazy when I drug a 14' tree branch through the doors this morning  (one vendor even said "only you would bring a tree in").  I guess I will take that as a compliment :)  I think my neighbor also thought I was a tiny bit nuts when I rang her doorbell yesterday and asked if I could have her broken tree limb!
Four hours later...old window pane is hung from the ceiling and makes an attractive space filler shelf and tree limb is hung on the wall which adds texture and helps hide the hideous pink walls (sorry Spencer's, they are ugly)
 I do have some exciting projects in the wings I just need the time and a little of my husbands muscle.  Stay tuned for a repurposed farm door hall tree (if it turns out how I imagine it to...well, it will be spectacular)!

Thrifty Makeover Projects on a Rainy, Snowy Spokane Day

Time to get started on a couple of projects because if I don't I will lose my mind.  I think like most people in Spokane I am suffering from EXTREME cabin fever and long for some sunny, mild weather so that I can be outside and not cooped up with the same four walls bearing down...sorry, I lost it for a moment.  

Anyway...I will start working on this cute little nightstand this afternoon as soon as I figure out what color it should be.  Followed by pig and footstool which should keep me busy until dinner.  Hmmmm, what should I make for dinner?
