$1.00 yard sale find

My husband and I walked down-town for coffee/hot chocolate this morning. On the way home, we  popped by a yard sale. Noticed this pretty vintage piece with a $2.00 price tag. I picked it up to look at it, and quickly heard:  "You can have that for a $1.00". I snapped it up. It is so beautiful. Think I will take the lid off and use it as a flower vase.  Love!

My $1.00 yard-sale find!

Think I will remove the lid and use it as a vase!

The perfect little vase. Would be lovely with white flowers!  Now can't wait to buy some white baby's breath.....

French Blue Candlesticks (flea-market find)

Purchased these beautiful french blue wooden candlesticks at a flea-market last week-end. Love the color.   Cest la vie! 

Beautiful french blue!

Perfect....accented with fresh flowers.

Tablescape is large enough to accommodate their size....

The right accessories can add so much to a room!

Making room for a vanity!

Have always enjoyed a separate vanity place for applying make-up. My vanity area is now in our spare bedroom. You can carve out your own space with some simple steps. Look for either a fold-up table or sturdy piece of furniture such as an old desk at thrift store. Make sure the table/furniture piece fits your space. Add all of your "girlie" essentials for making the space functional. i.e.) mirrors, lamps etc.  I am now using a white fold up table that I found while thrifting. I topped my table with a piece of marble for an elegant look.  Love this space.
