French Love Letter Tray

Hello awesome Friends! I have a sweet makeover for ya'll today! I must have passed by this tray at the Antique Mall where I have my booth at least a dozen times: I just loved the details of the frame. I finally decided to just buy it already. I thought maybe I could put some pretty fabric under the glass, only when I removed the outermost felt layer on the back, I discovered mold between the layers... Gross! Then I discovered the glass was not clear, but covered in foil-like … [Read more...]

Wooden Box Update

Hello lovely Friends! I'm back today with a quick little makeover for ya'll.  There's a thrift store by my Mom's house that I always stop in whenever I'm out that way. That's the same store where I found my 99¢ table. When I stopped in there last week, I found a few small things: The little pitcher was my favorite find. I can always use a pretty white pitcher. All of these were on the clearance...does it get any better than clearance at the thrift store?? (No. The answer is no.) Today … [Read more...]
