Antique Buffet

Happy April Friends!

March was a great month for me..not only because I sold quite a bit in my booth at Traditions Antique Mall.. but, I received a phone call from a wonderful Lady who called to let me know she bought the antique vanity I had in my booth.

She was soooo sweet and encouraging, it was a such a nice thing for her to call me and let me know just how much she loved it.

That phone call made my week.. heck.. my entire month!

I'm so happy that there are other Shabby Chic lovers  out there,
and even better, like what I do! :-)

Thank you so much
to each and every one
of you who have encouraged
me along the way.

I am loving every minute of what I do,
and am so lucky to be able to share with others.


Yesterday I went out to the
Webster Flea Market to do
a little "shopping".. I didn't find much..

So, off I went to various thrift stores
and antique mall driving the hour + ride home.

I didn't have the greatest of luck,
until I arrived at the last antique mall of my day.

I shopped around for a bit, weaving up and down the isles..
then.. this.. in the WAY back.. there she was...

(Can you hear the angels singing - like I did?)

(Picture taken with my phone
inside the antique mall)

Standing all glorious and beautiful
like she was just begging me to take
her home.. so, that's just what I did!

Here she is in my garage.. YAY!
I took the drawers and the
fabulous patina'd antique mirror out..
(You'll have to wait until
it's all done to see the mirror.. sorry!)

As soon as I got her home, I couldn't
wait to start painting!!

Sneek peeks!

As soon as she's done
I promise to come back
and show ya'll!

  1. Seems as though we spend a great deal of time looking for things for our booths and when you least expect it you find something wonderful like your beautiful piece.

    Can't wait to see.


  2. Exactly Sissie!

    When I saw this my heart stopped and I heard faint singing in the background.. hehe.
    This one is getting a new spot in my home. I can't wait till she's done. I just adore it!

  3. Hi Sherrie! I wanted to stop by and say "thank you" for visiting my blog. I must say, I was so delighted by the name of your blog...ruffles n raspberries...two of my favorite things!

    Boy, that buffet is beautiful. I just inherited some maple furniture, specifically a desk and chest of drawers, and I'm pretty sure I'm going to paint them. Someday, when I have more time, I'm going to visit your blog again and look at your beautiful painted furniture more closely. You do such a beautiful job!

  4. Hi Heather! I've been following you for a bit now, love your blog... and I can't wait to try out the cobbler recipie you posted. I haven't had cobbler since I was a kid. YAY!

    Well, we must be quite similar then, I came up with my name since Ruffles n Raspberries are 2 of MY favorite things.. hehe!

    When you do paint them, please share, I would love to see! Thanks for the compliments, and hoping your week is just fabulous!

  5. What a beauty that buffet is - I can't wait to see her when you're done!

    I'm glad you got that special call. It's so nice to hear feedback like that! I've only had a chance to visit Traditions once but I can't wait to get back...with a much larger vehicle than mine!

  6. Wow Sherri! Can't wait to see it done.

  7. Can't wait to see this done--beautiful piece!

  8. Thanks for poppin' over Sandy, Karen Sue and Emily :-)
    I've got 2 coats of paint on her already, I had to quit for the day though, man o man.. she's a beast! LOL

    I can't wait till it's done too.. sooo excited about this one!!


Please post a comment, I'd love to know what you think.
Thanks for visiting!
