As I have mentioned before, my decorating budget
allows for Big Lots, TJ MAXX, Marshall's, Ebay
and that ilk. As luck would have it, an Ebay seller,
whose wares I love, ended up living very close by!
So close, in fact, that her "shipping" cost became
a non-issue!!! Her Ebay seller name is missjuliak,
and through her, I have "paypal-ed" my way to
a cottage home!
This chair, which you have all just seen...missjuliak!
This posh scratching post...I mean chair.....missjuliak!
Accent table for the bottoms stairs...missjuliak!
Accent table for the upper landing...missjuliak!
Yard-long-roses for the pink room....missjuliak!
Large basket that was actually included with one of
the small tables...missjuliak!
Picnic basket that I had no idea what to do with...but
it had been included with another item...I decided to
use a side table by one of my wing back chairs.
Cute magazine rack...(those books were already there...
no staging, truly...I am not such the motivated type to
switch out my books...seriously, look, there must be
a years worth of dust on them!).
My grandparents had these tables...somehow, when I
was 16 and they were dark brown...they held no interest
for me...go figure! :)
"Someone" has been slightly needy and underfoot since her
new brother came home!
80's pressed back chair...I added the decal and some paint details.
If I recall correctly, she said that this used to house a big old
fashioned radio...even Elizabeth Bennett finds it charming
in it's new role!
Really, missjuliak is not a relative...I have never even met her!
But, without being aware of it, she has furnished my home!
And I am grateful! (And I am also cheap)! :)
And I am going to be part of The Cottage Charm Give Away!
(Just give me a sec to get the pictures together!)
