TGIF friends!! Finally, right? I am taking a small break from laundry and packing, we're leaving for West Palm Beach Antique Festival as soon as Mr. Ruffles gets home from work. Yippee!! I'm pretty excited to go, can't wait till tomorrow morning!! I have my camara packed and ready to go, too.. I'll be sure to take plenty of pictures to share with ya'll.
I have been working on my dining room table/chair set all week, but, I've also been busy on "The Twins" and The Sister. Who are the twins and the sister? Here they are.. in all their thrift store glory:
Mmmmmm... purple corduroy... yummy!!!
And, "The Sister"
Obviously, all 3 were in dire need of a makeover!!
First, "The Twins":
I painted and shabbied The Sister in a mixture of white and a minty green sort of color..
That's one of my ironstone pictures and bowls sitting on the Sister.
Lovin' the spindles
(After they've been painted.. definately NOT during!! haha)
Ahhh... MUCH better!!
I've also been busy making a few more pillows for our couch and loveseat.
I used drop cloth that I washed and dryed 2x for softness and printed out some graphics from The Graphics Fairy again, and tied black ribbons on the side.
And, made these 2 little pillows with leftover "oopsie" fabric pieces I had.
I stenciled and painted the fleur on both of them, too.
Gotta love ruffles!!
And, last, but, not least.. I just couldn't wait to go to the Antique Festival tomorrow.. I jumped in the truck and went thrifting for a bit. Man o man, did I score!! Yay!!
First up.. remember the old victorian garden chair I picked up at Renningers for $10?
I did some research on it and found another one for sale online for almost $300. Today, I stopped at the antique mall in Mt. Dora and found this one, just like the other one, but in MUCH better shape and painted white.
This one is going inside the house for me!
Stopped at a Thrift store on the way home and picked up this wire basket along with 6 linen napkins and 6 linen placemats.. all matching, embroidered and gorgeous for only $4!!
Last, but, not least.. ya still with me?? hehe, I know.. it's a long one, but, sooo worth it in the end, I promise!!
I went to my 2nd favorite thrift store and picked up this beauty for guess how much?
It was marked $70... but, marked down 50%!!!
The mirror came with it!
I've had my eye on this dresser/mirror set for a couple of weeks, so I was beyond thrilled that no one had picked it up yet.. AND it was marked down to 50%! The shop owner asked, "You gonna shabby it up?" LOL But, of course!! As I was leaving he says, "See ya next week!" Ahh.. just love it meeting new people, they remember who you are the next time, and look forward to seeing you again.
Hope to be able to score just as well tomorrow!
Have a fabulous weekend ya'll, and Happy Mothers Day!!
