Although I don’t know what I will do in January and February, I’m really enjoying doing this particular post monthly. It’s fun for me!
I know, I’m crazy like that.
So, two weeks ago I found out that I would be moving my work into my own booth at a popular local Antiques shop. This exact challenge was not specificly on my mind. What was specificly on my mind was my glaringly obvious lack of ‘Smalls’. I had plenty of larger furniture pieces to fill my 10 x 10 space, but very few small items to ‘fill in’ the space. Now to me, the ‘Smalls’ are what doll up the space. So I needed to get busy. Correction.
I needed to get busy, go to Mexico for six days and then get busier. Lord, I was crazy to put myself in that time crunch to begin with!
So here’s how I spent this month’s $10.
This gorgeous silver gravy boat
If I’m being honest, this ain’t leaving my house. It had me at the handle!
And it goes so well with oak leaves and white pumpkins, of which we have plenty!
Now, this is gonna kill ya.
I kid you not.
Or as Big a Daddy says,
‘Im crapping you negative.’
Also, going nowhere.
#3 & #4
Two Lamp bases
This one was $4 and started out as a quite beatup bronze. So after two coats of Old White and a cute shade I already had this is what it looks like now!
Just a little bit of distressing.
The second was a yellowish / gold when I picked it up but I lived the barley twist style.
Both of these lamps are going in my booth but this one is already there .
Love that base!
Not bad for a ten spot.
