Cotton Candy Pink
Sweet, simple two tone versions.
This is a little wild, but very creative.
Two Tone Pink (one of our favs).
Polka dots are so popular. Very retro!
This one is for the MAN CAVE!
Should we leave it white?

Drove through most of Oregon today. It is a beautiful state, that has everything from majestic cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean to grassy rolling hills in Pendleton.
Tonight were are staying in Ontario, Oregon.... it has been a long day of driving. We're gonna hit the hay now then rise early tomorrow to get a jump on all the garage sales. After that we'll move on to Boise, Idaho to discover some cool shops we've heard about.

6. Trunks and suitcases make original end tables and are wonderful for providing extra storage. Adding wheels on a large trunk creates a hip coffee table. Some look great in their natural state, with a good cleaning and an oil finish, others can be revived using wallpaper and fabrics to cover them, or by adding vintage decoupage.
7. Globes make sensational decor accents in a den, office or a child's bedroom.
8. Maps are great to use in decoupage projects for small table tops, lampshades, trays, walls or simply to frame.
9. Medicine bottles, especially in blue or green glass, are quite sought after to display as a collection, or as a single bottle with one flower added.

Well , Mom and Patty just couldn't stand it anymore, they are coming to visit! They have been reading about all of the hype for our upcoming show and just couldn't wait to come check it out for themselves. They will be sifting through our garages to access our finds, give us ideas and try to con us out of the good things (Beware Dixie!).
We will be on the hunt hard for the next few days. Mother will be in heaven, she will run all of us ragged till the sun goes down. I guarantee you we will hit every yard sale in Pierce County this weekend. Mom is so excited that I think she forgot Sunday is Easter... oh boy that means no yard sales on Sunday. Thank Goodness, she'll be forced to rest!

Heather makes these cute little primitive dolls. This one is sitting in a dry sink in her family room. She is so sweet. I think I'll call her Sally.
