I'm just sharing some very fun items I've beening finding lately...most are in the ruff, not yet cleaned up! Tin "A"!
Fun garden plant moving cart! I think it needs some new wood!

I haven't found a set of 3 striped suitcases in awhile...they'll shine after a good cleaning!

Another cool industrial clothing rack! It is solid!!

Metal mannequin, vintage postcard holder!

I found a large blue tin "b" also!

Plus great black metal letters...

piled in my car...

This is great vintage shoe display rack...they look great with vintage locker basket in them or in kitchens for storage of dishes or linens too!
So what do you think? A+ or not?
Happy Spring!

Drab to Fab!!!

Isn't great to have completed projects??? Here are 2 sweet ones that I have been working on!
Cute little outdoor/indoor set...but so drab and dull...

Not anymore...they are ready to go in a fresh ocean breeze blue! Someone please pass the lemonade!

I loved this table with all it's charm and personality... but need we say it was rough!

But with a fresh coat of black paint it was ready to go again! Notice the hidden drawer!

Just like that cute black dress, it's ready to party at your house!

How are your projects coming? Spring is just around the corner!!!

Ta Ta for now!

Starting in the barn...Spring sale just around the corner!

Yesterday was a gorgeous "springy" Texas day, and since our next sale is just around the corner, we got started moving items at the barn! First we clear out a space...down to the walls...
Clear off the remaining pictures, screws and nails, curtains etc....

And then start filling in up again...

We have some real manly finds this time and loads of antlers! Check back to see how we display them! ( I don't know yet myself!) Any ideas? Please share!

Hope you are enjoying your day!

Small Spring Finds!

Even though it has been so cold, we've still been out hunting fun stuff! I'm so glad that spring is on the way....I love all the seasons, but the warm ones are my favorite for sure!
Sweet white rectangle tray and wonderful robin's egg blue shelf (turned upside down).

I've never seen these white trays - so sweet!

Fun hand mirrors and great pottery serving tray - love that white!

It's a well-loved mirror!

Fun little angel with beaded wings!

Enjoy the hunt! That's what life's about!
Ta ta for now! ~~ JLM

Warm Blueberry Pound Cake - Double YUM!

When it is cold outside, besides staying inside, I always want to bake...something fresh pulled out of the oven...what a great way to say I love you to your family! Here's one of my new favorite recipes...It's so easy and yummy! I hope you'll enjoy it too!
Blueberry Pound Cake
1 box yellow cake mix
3 eggs
1/3 c. oil
1- 8 (oz) package cream cheese
1/2 c. mayonnaise
2 c. blueberries *
Mix the first 5 ingredients and fold in the blueberries. Pour into a sprayed bundt cake pan and bake 1 hour at 325 degrees.
1 c. powdered sugar
2 tbsp. melted butter
2 tbsp. canned milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix and pour on the hot cake. ENJOY!
* I often use frozen blueberries. If you don't want them to run or get mushy, put 2 tbsp of flour with them and that will coat the berries.
That recipe is curtsey of my sweet friend Pat Lindsey, a true blueberry lover!
I think this would be great to substitute chocolate chips in also!
~ Wishing you warmer days ahead,
