From Shabby Chic to...

...just plain shabby!
What do I mean?

Lazy Saturday morning lying in this iron bed,
painted just the right shade of shabby pink,
with the view of...

this ceiling... thinking...

I sure would like to see the rest of that room.
It's got to be over the top!


With a closet full of pink shabby ruffles...

How does a girl decide what to wear?

Neither one would do for tending the garden.
I wish I had a pair of shabby pink overalls.

No it wasn't the heat out in the garden today
that gave Ms Victoria Bun a headache.

It was...
Leaving her 500 babies unattended
in the house!

Now that's just plain shabby!

500 babies...that's not why Ms Victoria Bun
has a headache...

...from Mr. Bunny's perspective
it doesn't look too shabby at all!

I'm sorry but I just couldn't resist.
I was looking for shabby pink overalls
for the garden and this popped up.
Just looked like a cute fluffy bunny tail.

Shabby Shady Saturday down here at
Rock Candy's...
now back to sweet pinks with
Beverly--How Sweet The Sound


July/August Birthday Wishes

Busy cleaning my crafting room and
came across this and thought...

Well I'll just post that for you

B i R t H d A y G a L s ! ! !


I erased the signature in case
you would like to send to someone
a little on the shady side ;-)

I've started and can't STOP!

Thrifting Thursday is perfect for me because
I take my son into the village for fiddle lessons.

I tried to be good today
after my little junkin' yesterday
so I headed for the library.
Checked out a few books but
uh oh just enough time...

I'll just go look. Have you ever used that one
on yourself?

25c baskets, little two-tier tray,
three-section glass tower,
large leather scrap book cover...

vintage little bear and cart,
and even though this cute little cup has a chip,
I want to make on of those candle sticks like
Spencer. She gave a little tutorial and if you go by
please, tell her I sent you ;-)

Bed linens--king skirt, 2 shams, & a small pillow--all $3

Now just like yesterday...remember the dumpster part?

This one was next to a storage unit place. People
clean out and toss...good stuff!

My son helped dig and load with me
but just rolling his eyes saying, "That's enough!"

Isn't this a cool old bottle?

Table with book ledge...any suggestions on paint?

The trunk was in two pieces but do you think that
bothers me?

and grandma's SINGER!

~Junkin' Candy Pooh~

Undeserved Mercy!

Feasting on His Word today...

He has set a table before me...

It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
and to sing praises to Thy Name, O Most High;
to declare Thy lovingkindness in the morning,
and Thy faithfulness by night.

Psalm 92:1-2

Advice from the Pooh!

Sounds like good advice and I did make a little
list of things to look out for.

Looks like by the smile on his face,
Pooh thinks I did pretty good.
Two more containers for my cactus container garden...
the brass fondue pot and the silver soup terrine.

Angel pedestal will be great for a cake platter.
And the two greenish blue cups will be nice
the next time Terry comes to visit.
(Thought of you, girl friend, when I saw these ;-)

Doll heads, they were on the list but I couldn't remember
if my project idea called for hair or no hair.
Got both, one blue eyed and the other brown.

O.K. this next picture you're probably thinking...
looks like a pile trash! But this is where
T h I R f T y T h U r S d A Y
really kicks in...

So... as I'm leaving the thrift store I head around back
to check out a FREE chair which just happened to
be right next to the dumpster.

No you didn't!

Did you?

You bet I did!!!

His & hers ice skates, upholstery material--new,
silk scarfs, pair of good leather gloves,
and a bit more odds and ends.

Dixie, I could hear these calling your name.
At least that one in the middle--Am I right?

It took all I could to keep from climbing up into that
thing and digging all the way to the bottom.
I may go back after dark. Anybody want to
come hold the flash light?
