Where I've Been

I can't believe it is Wednesday already!!
This week is flying by and I still have a bajillion things to do!!

It has been HOT and HUMID here which is fine because I have been holed up inside this week working on my son's room.

I will show you a few glimpses in a minute but I first want to show you where I went last Sunday.
It was that time again for the Allegan Flea Market so Laurie, from Heaven's Walk, and myself, Debbie from Lakehouse was not able to join us this time and we MISSED her lots!!
she will join us again at the end of this month!

Before I went, Heather from Simple Daisy told me that she and her hubby might go. I can't even tell you how excited I was and immediately told her YES, PLEASE GO and gave her my number to call when she got there so we could meet up!!

When she got there Laurie and I were stuffing our faces with pizza. I know how much Heather loves pizza so I don't think that she minded. :)

Her and her husband are the sweetest and cutest couple and Heather is so beautiful inside and out.

We only met up for a couple minutes because they had plans that day but the four of us are planning on all meeting up at the end of this month for the day!!!

I scored a few things again this time around including this pale aqua bench, basket and more of the little aqua bottles that I got last month.

Another perfect find I picked up after Laurie spotted it was this turquoise fan!!!!
I think it was $20 and after the poor lady selling it told us she was going to cry (I think that the lady ahead of us insisted she pay way less for something)
So I didn't dare ask for any less.
Poor woman.

I also picked up a vintage map and a wire basket that I am planning to use in my son's room so I will show you those once I get them up.

Here is a little peak into his room.
I used chalk paint for the first time and I LOVE IT!!!!
It is Nepoleonic Blue.

I also used the wax and messed that up a bit.
Just remember, a little goes a long way!!

You can see in the background what I am doing to one of his walls.
I am really loving the way it is turning out.

Well that's about it for now. I am so sorry I have not been around to see you much this week and hopefully after I get the wall done I will catch up a bit.

I have been a bit off this week as well, I have some changes going on in my life, nothing serious and actually it is a good thing, but enough to change things up and mess with me a bit.
I will share more about that when I can.

I sent my blog pal Rosie over to see Erin's dining room transformation at Erin's Art and Garden; she too used this phenomenal chalk paint to totally change a dining room set. ALL OF YOUR WORK LOOKS FABULOUS!!!

Our storms are past us now. I hope we did not send the wretched weather to you!!!! Happy day dearest Anita

I love the vintage turquoise fan. I've always wanted a vintage fan and passed one up and sorry ever since.

michele said...

hey m! the fan looks fantastic, and the dresser does too!! i hear you about the humidity and getting inside projects tackled. unfortunately for me that has meant sitting in front of a computer, but i do like the dressing like a beach bum part.



Brandi said...

I bet you spotted them a mile away!!! it's so nice that you were able to get away for the day and shop with friends. i can't wait to see your son's room. I'm sure you're working hard at it and i know it will be beautiful. take care my friend...

Girl, you scored big time, not only with your finds, but getting to meet up again with these ladies. Lucky you! I have not forgotten about the shark teeth. LOL, You are a wonderful friend and a great lady!


Tonya said...

Love that fan & that bench!! Soooo stinkin' cute!! Love the sneek peek of your son's room as well! Can't wait to see that wall treatment you are working on!! I know it will look fabulous when its always does!! :) As for the changes you have going on, I pray that they are easy ones & that the transition will be smooth! We are currently going through some changes as well here at home...its been stressful to say the least, but I think in the end its going to be a blessing in disguise!! Sometimes its hard to see it that way in the midst of things though..

Carmie of the Single Nester said...

Love the fan and just about anything!!! turquoise!

Amy Kinser said...

That bench is wonderful as is the fan!! You have such a great eye for beauty and creating.

Love seeing your time with Laurie. She is such a sweet lady.

Jenni said...

Hello Michelle! :) I love the sweet things you found while shopping~ and oh! That turquoise fan you bought is amazing! And I am so glad you had a fun time with your friend, and got to meet another blogging friend, too! :)

I love that you let us peek at the wall behind the dresser, and I can tell it's looking good! And the dresser looks beautiful! That is the perfect color for a boy's dresser. :)

I am so sorry to hear you are feeling a bit off, and I do hope you are doing okay! I'm praying you have a wonderful Friday and weekend, my friend! :)
