A beautiful cabinet and a blogger award~!

Good morning ~  A little while ago, when I first started blogging, I showed a rusty old cabinet that Mr. Vintage and I purchased at a yard sale.  The poor thing ~

As you all know, Mr. Vintage is a very handy man to have around.  He worked and worked on this cabinet and now I MUST show you ....

It turned out beautiful.  I am going to use this cabinet in my laundry room~ I am so blessed ~ and speaking of blessed, Sabre at Heirloom Gypsy gave me the versatile blogger's award ~ thank you Sabre ~!  I am sooo thrilled.

Now, I must list 7 things about me...

1.  I LOVE to garden and can hardley wait for warmer weather~!
2.  I Love to cook especially out of vintage cook books.
3.  I Love to go thrifting, well, that's no surprise ;-)
4.  I Love to bake treats for my family
5.  I ABSOLUTELY ADORE Mr. Vintage.  He's the BEST
6.  On my quiet days I love to sip tea and read magazines ~ Flea Market Style, Victoria, Romantic Country Home etc.
7.  I am absolutely stunned at how wonderful all of you bloggers are ~ you are all so sweet ;-)

Now 7 Bloggers which I think deserve this award:

1.  Shells Shabby Shack
2.  Acorn Hollow
3.  French Buttons
4.  The Summer Kitchen Girls
5.  Izzy's Acres
6.  1942 Charm
7.  Rusty Rooster Vintage

Please visit these very talented ladies and enjoy ~

I think Mr. Vintage should get an award for the gorgeous job he did on the cabinet ;-)

I'm bored

Hello everyone ~ I'm bored

Mommy's still working on her chair ~ sigh ~

As you can see, I'm having a very bad hair day and Mommy wanted me to host her her blog today, but my hair!..... instead, I'm sleeping on her favourite pillow... 

If YOU come over and play with me I'll be alot of fun

I promise, I'll have a better hair day, especially if Mommy finishes her chair ~ eek! Mommy's coming upstairs and she said something about a bath! Gotta go~!  LOVE YOU Bye xo

taking a break

I'm taking a break from painting my little tattered chair and I thought I would share with you my Valentine's table.  Mr. Vintage and I are celebrating this evening...

Aren't these just the most beautiful tulips?

I like to use mismatched dishes...

I found some of this premixed dark chocolate  martini....Yum


Mr. Vintage came in and told me the table looked very pretty ~ sigh ~ He's the best ~

Happy Valentine's Day, Mr. Vintage ;-)

What are you doing for Valentine's Day?

I can't wait to hear ;-)
