Sometimes the Best Things Come in Small Packages

IMG_0482-EFFECTS

Sometimes the best things really do come in small packages. A few of my Blogging BFFs and I were talking about our trees and trimmings, etc. and decided that we should share what is special about our trees. What first came to mind is Dixie. Dixie is the mother-in-law of one of my dearest friends in the world.

After I sanded the stencil away and repainted the top, I decided to give these sweet antique tables a French … [Read more...]

My Booth {Virginia Beach Antique Mall}

My Booth, Lovely Things Furniture & Decor

I am finally getting around to sharing my booth space! Last year I shared my Christmas Market Booth, which was part of a big Thanksgiving weekend craft market here in Virginia Beach.
