Show and Tell Monday ... I stopped in at an antique center on Friday in the next town over that I haven't been in in quite a while. I really never take the time but at the last minute I decided to stop in. I had so much fun! I think I was there for well over an hour. I found some great new china pieces that I started listing on my site ...





We had a really nice sunny day here on Saturday. I hauled all of my furniture pieces I have collected over the past two weeks outside to sand and wash. I should have taken a photo. My husband says it looks like Sampson and Son when I'm working outside. Oh Well!!! It worked out great because it ended up raining all day Sunday. I like to work on kind of an assembly line ... sanding & washing a whole bunch of pieces, then priming them all, then painting. I think it makes me a little more productive. Off to run errands today. Thanks for visiting ...

Jennifer -
The second one down is gorgeous! I have a wall in my bedroom that it would look perfect on. Do you have it on your site?

The others are beautiful as well. What a wonderful way to spend a weekend!
