Today was our last day of school. The seniors of 2008 will graduate tonight and begin a new phase in their lives. We got out a little early and I got to come come home and eat a good lunch that my mom had prepared. Fresh green beans and chicken and rice. I am posting a few pictures today of several different things. I lucked upon an Estate Sale and found a few "treasures"! I found a Duncan Phyfe accent table, the cutest cream and sugar set, and a Batten burg Table cloth with 12 napkins. The table cloth with the napkins was only $5.00. I came home and washed them in OxyClean and I am going to starch and iron them later. I'll post those pics later on when they are ironed. I also found two cute white star fish candles at Anthropologie, they were marked 18.95 but they had marked them down to 3.95. The white wicker chair is something that I bought at the City Wide Garage Sale in Austin a few months ago. It was a dark green when I bought it and I painted it white and bought two cushions from Marshall's. The cushions match a quilt and shams for the twin bed that I am working on. Right now I am keeping the chair in the dining room. If you notice I have plaid wallpaper in my kitchen and dining area. I hate this wallpaper and I am going to paint the walls this summer a pale yellow. I am also getting new counter top and refinishing the cabinets and getting new hardware. This week I also found a great "treasure" on Craigslist for my daughter Linsi. She needed a King size headboard and someone had a beautiful mahogany headboard for $20.00. She and Haley my youngest daughter picked it up and they both said it is in mint condition and looked really nice. I have to work a half a day tomorrow and then I am off to Canton Texas for Trade excited! It is extremely warm and humid today here in Texas. I think we are going to have a very hot summer. I worked on the headboard this week but I'm still not finished with that project. I am watching the college softball world series and when it cools later I may work on it again. Stay tuned for what I find in Canton this weekend.....hopefully many "treasures"!!! Have a great weekend!
