Vintage paint by numbers

Friday, September 23, 2016


Aren't the vintage paint by numbers just the sweetest?
I find these fascinating.

This one pictured above has all the things I love:
-Darling animals
-1950's, 
-My favorite aqua color background
-Small 5 x 7 size

I found it this morning at the flea market for just $2  !!!



Below is my first paint by number that I found at Goodwill for $3



Now that I have two you know what that means?
I just started a new collection!

Ballerina Jewelry boxes

Wednesday, August 31, 2016


Hi Friends..
Sorry I haven't blogged much this summer.
I just finished some pretty ballerinas for my etsy shop. 
I love these little jewelry cases that I can paint pink, distress & fill with sweet goodies.



I have been working on my Fall/Halloween items so you will be seeing those soon.
(Hint: I used these wonderful little jewelry boxes for some spooky dioramas!)

Enjoy the rest of your summer as it comes to a close...see you soon!

Patriotic Pink & Shabby

Tuesday, June 7, 2016



It is difficult to get the "pink shabby" aspect into patriotic decorations right?
I found this adorable image of a little Uncle Sam & since he was holding pink roses..
I did what I had to do... I added more!
I had some great vintage pink plastic roses from a flea market trip.
I love the way this turned out.

Adorable thrift store find

Wednesday, May 11, 2016


Thrift store or flea market finds....adore them!
I would rather have some little vintage treasure any day of the week over something new.
I am picturing this bookend in a child's bedroom maybe in the 1950's?
Look at those colors!

She was $3.99 at the local thrift store but it was 1/2 price day!
