Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

The Pretty New Dresser in Guest Room

The Dresser looks very pretty in the room.. I have a white glass basket with raised roses filled with Vanilla Potpouri and Vanilla candles on the top of the dresser.. I found the basket last summer on a trifting trip. I loved it but really had no place to put it..It has been packed away until today.. The dresser is old and was painted. I will leave it as it is... for now as it matches the nightstand and a blanket chest already in the room..

New Thrift Store Treasures

Yesterday I met a few of the Charming chicks to go to some antique and thrifts stores. We had a grand time and I found some great bargains. I went with plans of buying a few items I really needed to organize my kitchen. I have wanted a new desk as well. It was a great day I found exactly what I wanted and at super great prices. The heavy pot rack is a "recycled wrought iron display shelf." I removed the 4 glass shelves and added some "S" hooks to hang my pots on. Now I have more to purchase  more as I have more pans that need to be hung. I love the new look..
I found the desk first and at another store there waiting for me was the bookcase, of course I had to buy it. All my cookbooks fit nicely.
Thankfully I had friends along to help transport my goodies. I also bought a dresser for our guest room. I will post that picture when I get it moved into the guestroom.. Yes, I think I did well..  best part I only spent $245 for everything and the Charming Chicks had a great day together.
