Recent Finds, Instagram and Randomness

Happy Monday!

Just popping in to say hello (that’s me waving)!  Time to get busy, but here’s a recap of last week.

First, a few of my recent finds…

Chest in Duck Egg Chalk Paint via Instagram

Paint Works Wonders!

The chest of drawers was found at an auction on Saturday night.  It was cleaned, painted, waxed, distressed and delivered for sale by Tuesday.  It was just one of two. Yes, we were busy!

The second was painted in a custom blend of colors using my favorite Chalk Paint. It turned out such a beautiful, pale pink.

Before and after pictures are coming soon so you can see the true transformations with the makeovers.

Pretty and happy colors!  And just look at that beautiful vintage hardware. I LOVE it!

The following are a few shots from Instagram with a little randomness from my week.  All pictures were taken using my iPhone.  It’s always handy and makes decent pictures.  It seems that I never have my real camera handy when I need it.  Do you ever have this problem?

Lets get started with a few Instagram Food Pics…

Delicious Lemon Pepper, Oven Roasted Chicken Dinner with Long Grain and Wild Rice and Green Beans. So delicious!  Trust me.  Quick, easy, healthy, homemade from scratch and oh, soooo good!

A large plate of delicious home-cut fries, slathered in homemade Chili, smothered in cheese with a side of jalapenos and spicy ranch dipping sauce.  All Homemade from scratch. Oh my!  Fresh and Homemade is always better!

Cinnamon Rolls piping hot out of the oven and freshly spread with a sweet cream cheese frosting. Yum!  These were homemade from a can of Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls.  Even though they weren’t made completely from scratch, they were delicious and the time saved made me even more happy.  Win, Win!

I love Instagram.  It is so fun to share a little of my world and see other folks photos of their daily lives.

I have even made some Instagram Buddies.  Really! I just know we would be BFF’s in Real Life!

My last bit of randomness featured on Instagram from last week…

I found a medium size box full of antique door knobs!  This is just a very few of them.  All shapes and sizes and colors.  They were packed by me in Oklahoma and moved back to Alabama.  Why you ask?  I have no idea.  Other than the fact that they are AWESOME.

What will you be doing this week?  I hope it is productive, creative and happy! Have a Blessed week, my friends!
