...was draining, however I am all moved in. We are unpacked, unorganized, and HAPPY about it. A few small projects still exist, and nag at me everyday! Knocking them out one day at a time. I do have new pictures, and I will post them soon. Busy, busy. My sister, Beka from Innove Events Styling, is visiting. We are having a great time pushing furniture around and laughing about the condition of my front porch... the Clampett's residence :-). Soon things will be in place and then, we start painting!!! Yep next on the agenda is exterior painting. Wish me luck!!! I will let you all know when the painting schedule is put together... and if you offered to help I will email you, anyone up for the midnight to a.m. shift?
Thanks for all your loving support!

Today I was looking around online for salvage plumbing pieces. More specifically, I am trying to find a few porcelain or steel brackets to make shelves in the bathroom. After an hour of looking without any success I came across the mother-load of vintage/salvage furniture, art and lighting. Factory 20 (www.factory20.com). If you have any interest in Mid-Century Modern furnishings, old industrial tables and stools or vintage mirrors and chalkboards.... go to the website and join me in a moment of silence!!! Did you hear the angels sing? It is unfortunate, if I happen to win the lottery tomorrow.... Factory 20 would bank!!!!!
Hope you are all having a great day!
P.s. I want to thank the Goolsby family for my flowers. Thank you for thinking of me, praying for my family and always working for Jesus! I know you touch many lives.

Since I spend most of my days, these days, searching for free boxes behind Publix and Walmart this idea was special to me... HAHAHAHA. You know when you have grass delivered on those pesky pallets? The garbage man won't take them so they rot by the road until a glorious trash picker comes by so intrigued by the wooden mess he takes it away for you! Of course the grass you just purchased is now dead underneath... and the cycle begins again!!! Anyway. Whomever designed this adorable daybed and outdoor seating is genius! Now I will never place the pallets by the road.... instead spray paint them make a couch!
Piles of pallets live behind Publix and Walmart, however I think taking them is stealing! Throwing out my "disclaimer".

Straight from the back burner. So after days of sanding, priming, and sanding again... we are ALMOST done. My hands hate me, I owe them a manicure. The final touches are about to complete the job. But, while my sand paper is still out, and I finally know how to work a sander let me introduce you to some junk I found in the garbage, but have big plans for.
1. The 2 little tables, found on the side of the road, were yellow and had seen better days. After sanding and a new piece of glass, they will be new side tables.
2. That dresser, the one the pine mantel is sitting on, will be finished and painted white.
3. See the small brown circles on top of the pine? That is a stool with a wicker top.... Anthony sat on it yesterday and fell right through. Also a garbage find, gets a coat of paint and a new upholstered seat.
4. The sofa gets new fabric, a black and white strip, and should turn out real nice. I am not doing this, but found someone on Craig's List for a great price.
My work is never done....
