~Spring is on the way.....and its headed to my Booth!~

With Spring just around the corner it is now time to start mingling hints of it into my little booths! Even though here in NC it felt nothing close to Spring today...a high of 39 degress and pouring rain ALL day. Here are a few more of last weeks finds that have been transformed a little here and there. The trunk was my spectacular find of the week!! It was already a great creamy white, all I had to do was add a coat of stain, it came out far better than I ever imagined!!

Yes... that is a Chippy Turquoise 57 Chevy Headlight Rim, had to have it ....for $2 bucks who could have resisted???

The metal lamp was a thrift find made over. It was a dull drab dark metal. All it needed was a little white paint and some sand paper along with an Old Vintage shade and look at the transformation...the little basket was done to match. I added a few old jars with some quail eggs along with a few other odds and ends and there you have a little bit of Spring on a cold day !!

Couldn't leave out the Starfish I found lying around .....

I have a few more goodies I am working on completing so check back so you can see their progress, Thanks for stopping by!

Janna, I thik the headlamp is funny. I once bought a giant dried bean pod from somewhere in the world. I'm getting ready to post a pic of something I recently got at the flea market and am looking for comments on what to do with it.
