Before I go any further I have to give props to my dear friend Stacy. I mentioned her before in one of my earlier posts - she is my daughter Amy's art teacher. I have actually known Stacy for a long time as she and her ever-so-talented hubby Anthony, moved in across the street from my childhood home right about the time I was due to get married to DH (ha! I finally got to use "DH" in my post - and now I know what it means!! Thanks MaryEllen!!). Oddly enough, we both got married in the same month. After several years and a few homes, Stacy and I have reconnected and now, she is not only my daughter's art teacher, but a mentor to me as well. Stacy is one of the most talented artists I've ever met. She has a beautiful home filled with treasures she has collected over the years, transforming them into sheer works of art. Over the past few weeks, Stacy has been kind enough to take me under her wing, sharing her secrets with me and showing me the "trash-to-treasure" ropes. I look forward to many more outings with her in the months (years) to come - thrifting, 'tiqueing, yard-saling and God willing - Good Willing! hehe
Here are some of the things I found with the help of Stacy over the weekend. Thanks Stacy!!!!
The bottle was $1.50 - had to pay extra for the Genie!!!
Love this!! It looks perfect in my newly Shabby-Chic'ed bedroom. Although DH couldn't understand why I would buy a picture of people we don't even know!LOL!!!
Actually got this beauty at Ross later that day. Too pretty to pass up.
This book I actually saw last week at a Thrift store and didn't buy it. I was so happy to see that they still had it this week. It is a homemaking book from the 50's and although the book was only fifty cents, the contents and pictures are priceless. I decided to get it just for blogging purposes as I'm sure each and every entry will bring a smile. Speaking of smiles....
Don't we all smile like that when we clean our stoves?????
"A clean stove is easy to keep clean......." HA!
More of these to come!!!!
