I just wanted to let y'all know that I saw my oncologist on Tuesday. He felt something so I had a scan on Friday. I should have the results by Tuesday.
I'm sorry I haven't visited or been up to blogging lately. I will feel so much better when I get some good results.

What I'm working on

I finally starting painting the chest in the "foyer." 
I need to keep my mind off of things so I'm trying to keep busy.
I've still got the drawers to do, but I've got to do those when Reagan is sleeping.
This is what it looked like yesterday after two coats of Old White.
Sorry for the quality of pictures, this little corner is so dark.
(This little corner has been a "hoarding" space for Reagan, she brings all her stuff over here while I paint)

This is what it looks like right now.
Chateau gray, my favorite!
Love this color.
(I am on the hunt for new drapes, I just can't decide what direction I want to go)

Hopefully I'll be done tomorrow, limited on time with little one running around.

Thanks y'all for the comments on the scales, for now the shelves look like this.
I haven't had time to move stuff around yet.
(I left the red one on the little table)

I will show y'all the chest as soon as I finish.

I've got an appointment with my oncologist next Tuesday and supposed to have a PET scan also for something I am terrified of. I'll have a CT scan in January when I see my radiation oncologist.
I just pray that everything is alright. 

Y'all have a good night.
We are getting ready to eat chicken and dumplings!

Vintage scales and opinions

Hi y'all, I hope you're having a good Saturday.
I've been cleaning and starting a new project. 
In the mean time Becca over at Adventures in decorating threatened  inspired me to dig my vintage scales out of the garage.

They've been sitting there because I have no where to display them yet.
So I tried one on my little table.

Then I tried another one.

Then I thought what the heck I'll put them up here on these shelves that I despise.
Seriously folks I don't like these shelves.
I do not know what to do with them.

Oops, don't mind the dirty dishes in the sink.

I got the top two from yard sales and reddish one from goodwill. 

Still loving my pure butter slab, money well spent!!! 

Another shot....

If I zoom out a little there is Kitty!
He is a camera hog. lol

I just don't know.
I liked it at first and now I don't LOL.
I LOVE the red scale. Maybe just one on a shelf? 
but what on the others.

A thrifted still-life painting

So, I found this still-life painting at the GW about a year ago. 
It has been sitting in my attic ever since.
When I was up there getting out Halloween decorations, I grabbed it thinking I could find a place for it.

You may remember my little table redo.

Well I just placed this cork board there because i felt something was missing, but I wasn't pleased with the way it looked. 

So I thought about putting my recently "new" to me again picture here.

Still have my hot chocolate and marshmallows in the Lance jar.

Another view

I think it looks much better. 

What do you think?

Have a good weekend y'all!

Thrifty finds!

I finally have something to share with y'all.
I don't believe I have had any luck at Goodwill for almost 2 months.
Check out my finds!

I immeditately spotted this adorable pumpkin!
I remember one my mom had when I was younger. It is from 1988. (I would have been 6)
99 cents

This vintage mommy and baby horse print found its way into my arms.

 LOVE this lamp!
The shade is crooked in these pictures, but don't worry I fixed her all up.
I snatched it up as fast as I could!

The bottom

I found a couple of blazers to wear for fall. 

 I LOVE this blue one. It looks purple in the picture but its really a deep blue.
I love it with my jeans and my brown knee high boots.
Looks great!

Have you found anything wonderful lately ?
