Progress!

Ahhh, the wonderful feeling of accomplishing goals! I did miss out on the Red Shed Show. I hear it was worth the drive and I'm very sad that I didn't get to go shop and visit. On the other hand, I hit some local garage sales Saturday that were worth my while. This little table sang to me. She didn't just speak to me. She sang a sweet little song. Aren't the lines wonderful? What were those winged cabinets for?

This deco wall sconce rocks. The heavy gold, the perfect glass. Ahhh, the stories it could tell.

When I found this small table, it did not have a top on it. I married it up with this metal piece I had. I wasn't sure I loved it, but it fit so well, I felt like it was meant to be.

I didn't just shop! David and I took a load to Winnie & Tulula's and did a reset. I love giving the space a new look with all the new goodies.

Didn't I mention progress? Indeed, David and I got pedicures Sunday after church.
As my mother said, I am practical. These shoes might not look good if we go out dancing, but when touring Boston, I think they will be the best choice. We went shoe shopping and we both came out with what we hope to be wonderful walking shoes.
I'm sure there are still "need tos" on my list. But, I am breathing easier. We leave for Boston Friday morning. Maybe I'll pick up another pair of shoes, or two before then.

Happy Monday!

  3. The cute table is a china buffet and the wings are for glassware, plates and the such. Great Grandma had one and I loved the wings. Very good eye and buy!!

    Have a fabulous trip!!

  4. I had rotten luck at garage sales this weekend but you had great finds. Love the white piece and also love the toes. Nothing better then a pedicure -- & nothing worse then sore feet so good for you on your footwear selection. Will be looking forward to your's & David's photos from Boston. I'd just like to see one shot of Harvard. Jan

  5. I suddenly have a craving for some Cajun shrimp! ;-) The brass sconce is very cool. You added some very nice pieces this weekend. I have my photos from Saturday up on Flickr. I took a few of Daphne Nicole's new space at Winnie and Tulula's too. Someone already left a comment about how pretty her sign is! Winnie and Tulula's is looking really good!
