Working for A Living





Ok, So this is not yet a full time job. Can't wait till it is ! Picked up a few treasures this weekend. Not much really going on. Had to settle for the thrift stores. But what you going to do the week between Christmas and New Years? I did find a wonderful antique chair at the Nottingham Flea Market when out with Connie. Re-stained it, steamed cleaned and trim re-applied with hot glue. It fit in perfectly with the decor of my bedroom. I also took a space in the basement to claim as my own. I now have all my " fixem upits" in one place. What a nice feeling to know I don't have to run all over the place just for a spot of glue. Next week I will be featuring "Trippin", this week did not work out. Technical difficulties and we will leave it at that.

Hi Dona!

Love your new antique chair. What a nice find! Thanks for stopping by my blog recently. I need to make up for lost time and will be posting later today about my holiday trip down south. Stop by if you have the time.

You think you got a great find on that day, just wait until tomorrow and we head to the estate sale of 3generations of stuff. I hope we have lots to blog about.

See you tomorrow morning.

That sounds so nice, to take off to flea Markets. I live where there aren't any Estate Sales in the winter, only the three summer months, so winter is kind of bland and Flea Markets are few and far between. I've enjoyed looking at your treasures.

When you say you restained the chair, did you use tea? It is a lovely chair.
