April 28, 2010


I did a little puttering around the kitchen the other day and changed out some of my displays....that's another great thing about being a thrift store shopper...there is ALWAYS so much stuff lying around to choose from!!!!!
This gorgeous tray is one thing that will never be re-sold--it was my grandmothers and my mom gave it to me the last time I was home (don't worry mom..I didn't paint it...just stuck some vinyl on it!).

 Happy day!

Hi Janis,
Everything you touch turns so lovely! Your silver tray is stunning and adding the vinyl numbers and then placing the metal eiffel tower in front for display....just beautiful.
You have such a wonderful way of embellishing everything. I love your designs.

The tray looks great! I've been picking up rosaries lately but am still on the hunt for white or cream. Elusive so far.

Very nice. My kitchen will be getting a makeover soon, it is so outdated. I keep putting it off because it will be soooo much work!

Hello Janis,
Your grandmother's tray is beautiful, the letters divine and the eiffel tower perfectly poised! You created a totally winning combination and it looks wonderful in your kitchen! I want to be you when I grow up. haha
