A cute little footstool....


It's no secret that dogs are a big part of our family. We would be so lost without all their unconditional love they give us daily.
So, when I saw this little footstool listed on eBay I just had to have it.


The little footstool is from the 1800's and is all hand beaded.


It has the cutest little petite feet.....


I found the perfect spot for it in the front parlor under the coffee table.
Hope you have a great week!
Happy Summer!

My best Craig's List find ever!


One day I was looking on Craig's List and I came across an antique piano stool with glass ball and claw feet. It was just too sweet to pass up! My husband jokingly commented that now I needed a piano to go with it. It took me about two seconds to realize that a baby grand piano would look amazing in the bay window of the side parlor.


So, I went back to Craig's List and started looking at pianos. There were tons of them listed, some were even free! However I didn't want just any piano. I wanted a baby grand piano like the one my mom had when I was a little girl. I remember her playing it and how wonderful the sound was....lots of wonderful memories. I was about to give up on my search since they were all soooo expensive when I came across this one. It is from the 1920's and was in fair condition and needed lots of love. At first I passed over it but something kept drawing me back to look at....because the price was just $100. I decided to go look at it just for thrills....my husband was less than thrilled. I saw lots of potential, he saw lots of  flaws. In the end we made an offer of $50 and made arrangements to move it. It took 5 hours and four men to move the beast!!!!  I used Restore A Finish with a fine grit steel wool on the cabinet and was shocked at how well it cleaned up. You would never guess we paid just $50 for it. I have had a lot of fun tinkering around on it and it makes me feel close to my mom which of course is priceless!

Have a great weekend my friends!

A new treasure......


I have wanted ones of these devotional candle stands for years and years.
 I finally found one on eBay a few
 weeks ago and of course I had to make it mine!


It found a home in the front parlor 
on this cute little chest I have had for a while. 
You might remember in our last house I used the little chest out on the porch.

I decided to use unscented candle votives in glass holders  to make clean up easier. 



I love the ambiance the candles give at night when lit up.
The patina and imperfections of the stand  just add to the character...


Have a great weekend my friends!
