New Chair for the Laundry Room

I have had the same chair at my desk in the laundry room for about 7 years.    I saw this one at the auction a few weeks ago and thought I would really like a rolling chair at the desk,   so I bought it.

Adding Architecture to a Plain Door

I freshened up the TV armoire yesterday,  and this morning I realized that the rest of the room could use a little refreshing too!

New Vignettes for the TV Armoire

Can anything be done to make your TV look like something other than a big black hole?     If you decorate with pastel colors like I do,  that black box that we can't seem to live without can become a eyesore in the!    I gave it my best shot this morning to perk our TV up and wanted to share the results with you.

Auction Dishes

This weeks auction was more of a "man thing"....lots of tools and guy stuff.    H bought a John Deere wagon to pull behind his lawn mower....I'll show you that later.  it was just the kind of auction that I love....girly things going really cheap since it was mostly men attending the auction!

Prairie Chic

Some of you may not know that I live in the Southwest.....New Mexico to be exact.   We live in eastern New Mexico (about 8 miles west of the Texas border) and the western side of New Mexico borders Arizona.

Yard Sale Treasures

There were tons of yard sales and a big auction this week end,  so I have lots of new treasures!    I was so happy to find this mannequin head ($5) .    She will be headed down to my booth to display vintage hats for sale.

American Rose Dishes

I bought this set of dishes at the auction a couple of months ago.     At the time I bought them,  I did a post for a tea party that one of my blogging friends was having,  so I only showed the teapot, sugar, and creamer.

Antique Library Ladder

Two Saturdays ago I was at a yard sale just down the street from where we live and I spotted this ladder.   I wasn't really sure what kind of ladder is was but the $15 price tag convinced me to take it home.....well.....actually we had to go home and get a bigger vehicle to load it in!
