Spring cleaning and rearranging my china hutch...

 

Hi everyone!!! I've been away from my blog for so long... Hope everyone is doing well! I need to catch up on all of my favorite blogs..... I miss visiting all of you.. ..




 I'm just doing a little spring cleaning and rearranging starting with my china hutch today... I'm not happy with the top at all so I still need to rearrange and try something different on top until I like it... I'm happy with the inside stuff for now...



 And I hung these frames up on each side... I want two on each side but I am short one for the right side so I need to find one that I like to go with the rest of these....


 As you can see..... Only one lonely frame on the right side... lol But I want to hang it up now even though I don't have the other one yet...
 Here's a peek at some of my goodies inside... Everything was found at thrift stores... I LOVE thrifting for my treasures!!!

 I've been having good luck at the thrift stores lately with finding ironstone... nothing fancy just some small things...



 I makes me smile to look at them......

  I chalk painted the rooster and hen ... I had them for years and they were very colorful and I wanted them white so I thought I would give it a try and I love the way they came out!!

 My frilly little teapot was a recent find... It's so overcast outside here in Chicago today and that makes my house so dark.... The photos look like evening pics... oh well .... lol



 Hope you enjoyed seeing my little thrift store goodies!!


Have a blessed day,
Pattie

A Little Christmas Decor

 I'm so behind this year on decorating.... I need Christmas to be at least another 3 or 4 weeks away.... lol. I finally went out to the garage last night and got a few boxes of Christmas stuff so I could at least decorate the mantle shelf over my couch and the vintage dresser in the living room before Christmas is all over with !!! lol
 It's so dark in here today with no sun outside that it's really hard to take any decent pics.... I had to put all the lights on and I don't like the way they come out with the lights on but what can I do....... Anyway thought I would share... I am loving all my little mini bottle brush trees and little glittered house and church!!
Back to decorating.........  I still need to decorate my china hutch and a little decorating in the kitchen as well...... and I need to start baking my Christmas cookies this week....

More Shabby Angels

 I managed to get two more shabby angels done! They are now in my Etsy shop!
 I can't believe how quickly this season is going... I thought I had plenty of time to work on my angels and some how time got away from me.... And with all the Thanksgiving preparations I'm super busy!!! 
 All I feel like doing lately is working on Christmas things for my shop ! Not getting ready for Thanksgiving.... lol   And I'm baby sitting my 6 month old Grandson 2 days a week now so no crafting gets done on those days... lol That's why I said I "managed" to get these two dolls done... ;)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Shabby Vintage Style Angel

 My first shabby angel of the season is finally done and up in my Etsy shop!! With more in the works! Each one will be different....
 These angels will all be made using vintage linens, crocheted doilies and embellished with shabby junk corsage/flower and mother of pearl buttons. Even their halos are made of wire and vintage mother of pearl buttons! I love them!!

Have a great day,
Pattie
