Miss Gracie's Goodies & other fun stuff

Miss Gracie's and Friends Vintage Barn Sale was fantastic! I went at 6:00 on Friday, when it started and there were people lined up to hit the sale. It was hot but they were kind enough to have buckets of cold water bottles for everyone. I saw so many things I would have loved to buy...I didn't get a lot but I did get a few fun things!
Since I have never had a real laundry room until now, I decided that I was going to decorate this one and make it feel special. I have decided to do it in pink and roses. When I saw this beautiful rose plaque at the sale, I picked it up as fast as I could. I love it and it looks great above the window!
These little sconces will look great with some white lace curtains hanging from them. These were my only purchases at the sale. I went back on Saturday with my mom and she found a cart and a coffee grinder. A lot less people and a lot less stuff on Saturday afternoon!This table would have fit right in at Miss Gracie's sale and I am sure it would have been snatched up right away. But this is my new table. I am sure you remember the post I did about my Heirloom Table awhile back. Don't worry, I still have it and plan to keep it forever! This table belonged to my best friend Kyla. Her mother in law gave it to her and I loved it the first time I saw it. I told Kyla that if she ever got rid of it, to let me know so I could buy it from her. She recently got a new table and her husband was about to throw it out. Luckily she remembered that I wanted it. The only thing I had to do was come and get it. One of the legs was broken but I knew my handy husband could fix it!
We were going to tear it apart and use it for other projects, but I just couldn't bear to do it. So for now, it sits in my dining room and I think it looks pretty cute there. My chairs go perfectly with it (she kept the matching chairs). My old table is on the patio and will come in handy when we have people over. I might just switch them back and forth or someday I will have a house with a formal dining room and a breakfast nook where they will both get used!
This is my next project. It is an antique bar/liqour cabinet. I can't wait to get it finished so that I can show you all the neat inside. If I can't find time this week, I will be sure to find time next week since I don't have to work all week. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to a whole week off of work!

The scrolled rose may be my favorite thing in this post. I am always drawn to anything with flowers. So pretty and the white, rescued table is so pretty. Thanks for sharing!

Hi Trisha, I am so glad that your friend remembered that you loved the table. I think it's so cute! Your rose decor will be so pretty in the laundry. You must show us when it's all decorated. Thanks so much for sharing with Share Your Cup.
Hugs,

p.s. also, I wanted to thank you for taking the time to send me the detailed instructions for mod podging graphics. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but I saved it and hope to soon.
