Turquoise Thursday

I've been busy pricing stuffs with these super cute tags...
Colton cut 'em out [little cousins are the best!] & I did a simple stamp on the edges. Love!!  

I spotted this sweet headboard at a yard sale & could not leave it behind! 
It was ugly yucky, yucky brown...
I had no idea what I was gonna do with it, but mom to the rescue! She helped me decide.
A white "Sweet Dreams" decal will be added soon.
It still needs some work, but I was too excited not to share!! =)

Ever heard of Moo Minicards? They're so fun & I ordered a batch today.
I'll share a picture when I get 'em..

Hope the sun isn't scorching ya too bad today!!

Bright colors,
distressed edges,

Old Toolbox. 
The chippy, worn paint adds so much character. Love!

Home Goods

Aren't these small blocks the cutest? Found 'em yesterday & knew exactly what I wanted to do. 
Rustic, western star. Love! It's for a sweet gal in Owyhee. 
How charming is this 'Nest' burlap banner? The pink and teal make a sweet combo.

Live Happy!!

Treasury List

This is the first piece I've done that is totally guy, right?
It's not shabby chic, sweet country, or vintage glamour. 
Ooitz spotted it out for me & KW tells me it's a card box. 
Whatever its purpose, it's cool & where better to sell it than in Nevada?!

My Paris Paper Rosettes made a Treasury List on Etsy today!!
Can you tell I'm excited by this?? =) Thank you Papercherries!

I went yardsailing this afternoon & let me tell you, I view yard sales completely different now than from a year ago. There are so many tiny treasures to be found!!
 I found some great stuffs including this table.

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint

Love this =)
We were in Coeur d'Alene on Saturday for a family lunch and did some shopping downtown afterwards. Car d'Lane was going on & it was so cool seeing all the classic cars. We stopped at Wiggett's Antique Marketplace and Figpickles Toy Emporium, great fun! The circus was in town as well so we dropped off the kids & Aunt Mel, my mom and I had enough time to hit up one thrift store. Treasures galore!! I have been searching for this style of table since I bought mine and Saturday was my lucky day. 
Yesterday, before we left Spokane I dragged Ooitz with me on a hunt for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. There are three retailers in the Spokane area that carry it. Our search began at 9:00 with our first stop being The Trellis Marketplace, it didn't open on time & we needed to get going so we were off to find ArtWorks Spokane. The help there was amazing!! I ended up with Old White, Provence & Dark Soft Wax.
 Old White with a touch of wax. 
I love how it turned out!
I dry brushed Provence on this vintage frame.
The patina is just perfect.  
Before Glenn's Eagle Scout Honor Court, Ooitz & I went yardsailing in Medical Lake. We found this super cute, vintage canning jar. I added crown tissue paper on each side, now it just needs a black candle inside. It's so charming!!
Live Happy!!

 I totally wheeled the truck & trailer on the way back from Pocatello today!!
 My Mr. was so patient & sweet about it...I love him.
 Ooitz & I did some shopping this evening. We found all sorts of goodies! 
There's a new store in Mtn. Home, Limited Edition, right on main street.
 If you're in the area stop by, it's such a neat shop!!
Fabulous, right?!!

Vintage hangers? Yes, please! 
I have big plans for these dandies. 

We're off to Spokane tomorrow & I'm sure I'll find a few places to browse along the way =)

Oh Snap!

PiNK, ZeBRa PrINt & SpARKleS!!! Perfect for a COWGIRL. 
I LOVE this! I can't wait to finish & find it a new home. It will read 'Cowgirl' when done. 
& I received an order from little Aleena's mom today. 
She'll be getting one with her Indian name, so unique! 

Yesterday morning, I received this text message from my youngest brother...
Just before he walked out the door, two minutes earlier, I reminded him to watch out for Sadee, 
so I figured he sent this as a joke. 
Nope! Thank goodness it's only minor.

I'm off to Boise tomorrow, I can't wait to go shopping for new supplies!!!
...Live Happy...

This 'n That

Barbed wire & dusty flowers.
I have been working on this for the past week & I got an order for another one on Friday. It's so exciting when I receive special orders. This particular piece is four feet long and has five flowers.
 I am lovin' the turquoise with the rusty wire. 
The gal who ordered is super sweet, and I can't wait to deliver it. 
Want one? Leave a comment & we'll work something out. 

It was the best weekend...Daxton and I were in Klamath Falls, Oregon for his first Indian rodeo, which he won with a 4.6!! Very pretty country up that way, I might add.
We decided to take in a little fair action & hopped on a carnival ride...twice =)
It was So. Much. Fun! I love doing small spontaneous things with him.
I made another Etsy sale over the weekend!!! & today I'm sending off my application for Elko's Art in the Park July 14th & 15th...fingers crossed I get accepted.
