"Out and About"

     Well, it seems that I just "hit the ground running" after returning from a great vacation in Port Angeles and Vancouver. I found so many wonderful things and there was more that I could have bought but room  definitely became a factor. Then I just froze in my tracks and didn't feel like I had anything worthy to post or talk about. What? Come on Rita get out of that funky mood and just share your heart and what really makes you happy.

     Wait a minute...did I hear someone say did you guess? I found these beautiful dishes on Sunday then remembered that I had a couple of plates that matched this exact pattern. I love the band of flowery motif circling each piece and they mismatch perfectly with others I have. I got all 3 pieces for $12.00.

     Finally, I decided to venture into this thrift store I just always pass by and found a couple of picture frames that I'll transform into a inspiration board and chalkboard. And this beautiful lamp that I will paint white and lightly distress. I can hardly wait to show you how beautifully they'll turn out! So, I hope you return to check out the final results.

     Until then happy collecting....The Blue Farmhouse.
