This is always such a busy time of year.  Today, I was finally able to photograph some pretties that I've been finding and using to create.

I  have a new love.  It's vintage bone dishes.  I love the history of  these sweet pieces!  Back in the day, when people had meat with bones, they would discard them on here.  I think that's a hoot that they would use such  pretty pieces for discarded bones!  lol

I've been painting (repurposing) but haven't had a chance to  share any of it.  
Despite it being spring in New Jersey, our weather is so not feeling like it!
The heat went on this morning since it was in the 40's here.  It's crazy (and a tad depressing).

Here are some of the pretties I have been playing around with the last few weeks.
Of course, white with French country and beach cottage influences!
Each piece is of course, white with French country and beach cottage influences!

I was so excited when I found this at a thrift store.  It was originally green.  I repainted it white and added knobs.  This makes a great memo/note/photo holder.  I love using mini clothes pins (either as is or embellished) for clips.  So charming!
I love this frame.  Whenever I find ornate ones, I usually scoop them up.  Great for using in groupings.  I rarely find circlar or oval ones like this though.  This was originally gold and I repainted it.  So much prettier now!

I hope to visit around to all my favorite blogs.
If you are here, thank you :)

Love the little memo holder!

I have an oval frame like that and it was brown when I bought it. I hardly EVER find ornate frames anymore!
