OK. So I have been promising a sneak peek at my thrift store finds, so here is what I found.
I found this great blue pattern plate that was a perfect fit for my project today, but I also found this beautiful silver plated serving spatula.
I love the detail on it. I gave it a good shine up and a place of honor next to my grandmothers utensils and a great spoon my daughter gave me for christmas (it even says mom).
I also found this great chair. It has soooo much potential, but it is going to take a LOT of work.
The springs are completely out at the bottom, but I saw a great tutorial for how to repair it. I want to take my time with this project and get it right, so I will keep you all informed on its progress.
In other news, I have been MAD busy at the 9-5 gig this week, and with taking time out for orthodontist appointments for my daughter, I had to give up some of my precious weekend in order to make my deadline today. I did it… but this evening everything seems to be catching up to me and now I am feeling a little sick (scratchy throat and upset stomach). Ugh…
The highlight (literally) of my day came first thing this morning though, so I thought I would share it with you all. It was far too beautiful not to take a picture.
I hope everyone has a great night…off to bed for me and my scratchy throat. I hope you all are greeted with one of these tomorrow!
