Monday Blues, and Eye Candy For You

Little corner display in new room.
I love those shutters! Dreamy color.

Below are pics of what I have been doing to change things around,
and make my world a little cuter.


New corner display in kitchen area.
(sorry so dark.)
The box is one made out of weathered fence boards.
Filled it with my strainer nest, an old cabbage slicer,
and egg beater.
Put an old sign on top, and a jar of beans;
Wallah!! Instant display. =)

Sewing display in new room.
I had lots of help putting things together when we
were in a frenzy to get this done on time.

Fun find!!
Love these colors!

Putting them in a little display.

Serving tea at the store, means more people using the bathroom.
So, even though it is still storage, it is cleaner and cuter. =)

Blues for the Brainy.

I got these games at a garage sale for $1.00 each.
They are dated 1961.

They are like new inside.
I took one look at those 'dice', and the book of instructions,
and closed that box right back up!
Equations? What are those?

Here is the second game.
The instruction books for these games are about 1/2" thick!
Guess you know instead of playing these, we are selling them!!

On the other hand,
the one on the right, Hood's Combined Cook Books,

is listed at $25 on the internet!!!

Don't you love it when you fall into a good deal like that?

OK. Now hope you will get out and visit some of these lovely blogs
and see what everyone else has been up to.

Blessings on your day,

Barbara Jean

FUN! I felt like I was walking through a cute little boutique somewhere fancy. Where did you get those cute little twiggy things in front of the shutters. I would LOVE some. Thanks
