My Craig's List China Hutch

I'm so thrilled!!!
I've been wanting a vintage china hutch for the longest time... I'm always checking Craig's List but all I ever see are the china cabinets with glass doors and I wanted one that's open like this one... I was so happy when I finally spotted this one about 2 weeks ago!!!

I'm planning on painting it white with some homemade chalk paint but I haven't had the chance to get to the store and look at paint!

Even though I'm going to paint it I couldn't wait to start putting some of my stuff in it to see how it looks.... I love it but I still think everything looks better white.....


 Here are a few pics of some of my junk... Most from thrift stores and a few things from antique malls...


 The reason I have one of my vintage scales on top is I was just trying out a few different things to see what looks best up there and forgot to take it down before the pic...
 I have an old window frame I might put up there but not sure yet... I'm not good at creating adorable vignettes like you see out there in blogland...  But I know I want to definitely put a few things on top because my ceilings are high and it looks to empty, I also need to fix the hole from the mirror I had hanging on that wall... 

 I found this beautiful vintage tray at the thrift store the other day, It looks like a tray from maybe a soup tureen... I wish they would have had both pieces that would have had me jumping for joy!! Even though it was just the one piece I took it because I thought it was so pretty....
I'll share pics when I get the china hutch painted white with the chalk paint! Hope you enjoyed seeing my Craig's List buy!!

Another Angel

 I've added another angel to my Etsy shop! This one is coffee stained. I think I like the coffee stained one even better then my original one that I posted yesterday!! I love the vintage-y look the coffee gives!

Shabby Angels

I started making 5 angels for my Etsy shop months ago and then I got sick and  was not able to finish them until now....
It's always something every holiday it seems that causes me to get behind... 

  I have this one all finished and in my Tattered Treasures Shop! And I'm going to finish the rest of them tonight and tomorrow after church and get those in the shop!

I love how she turned out!! I love the look of the vintage buttons!! Especially in her halo!!

Have a blessed day,

A Little Bit Of Christmas..

I was looking around at stuff on the internet a few days ago and came across THIS and fell in LOVE!!! I LOVE Neutral Christmas decor and I LOVE book paper crafts so I was just drooling over this beautiful sleigh!!

Unfortunately I don't have a  Sizzix Big Shot or any other die cutting machine as far as that goes....

Well...., during the week I was at one of my favorite thrift stores when I came across this little prim rusty sleigh and I thought of the die cut sleigh I saw online and those adorable little book paper wrapped gifts and I knew I had to have it! so I grabbed it and headed home to try my best to make my own little version of that adorable sleigh.... 

 So This is what I came up with!! I LOVE it!!!I enjoyed making these little book paper wrapped gift boxes so much!! I think they are so cute! Especially the teeny tiny little tags! So sweet!! I want to make more! lol

 I don't have a beautiful reindeer to display with it yet but I am just thrilled with the way it turned out!!  I might add a few more little touch's to it, I'm still playing around with it... Just thought I would share it ....

 I still need to put my tree up, things have been pretty hectic around here lately and I haven't had time.... I didn't even get a chance to get the sweet little angel dolls I made for my shop up yet... I might put them up in a couple days anyway even though it is kinda late...

I'm linked up with:~  Be Inspired at Common Ground!

Have a great weekend,

My awesome garage sale find

Stopped a garage sale on the way home from church today and I found this!!! It needs to be cleaned up and oiled, and a new belt but I am thrilled with it!!!
I love it!!! I'm going order the belt and other supplies on ebay and get it back in working order. I'm tempted to paint the cabinet white but not sure if I should or not....

Have a blessed day,
