So, today they held their annual Paris Flea Market out back. Scattered on tables under large tents were candlesticks, bowls, books...just a ton of good stuff. They also had a food drive for a local non profit group based in Palo Alto.
I dropped off my donations and headed in for treasures...I found some great vintage wooden picture frames and vintage botanical prints.
I couldn't believe this great find...I have been looking for a little table just like this one to use as a make up table. Can you believe it was only $25!!
Inside I picked up this great yellow chicken for my kitchen...
Chickens and roosters and little birds are big in my house.
It was a fun morning in the beautiful California sunshine, but I pretended I was really in Paris for just a bit...
I am so excited about my little table!
Attached to our bedroom is what I call our "dressing room"...I don't know what else to call it...it has our closets and a big antique armoire. It needs painting and new baseboards and closet doors, and a lot of fixing up, and my plan was to get a little make up table for that room (in an attempt to keep our tiny master bathroom a little neater), and that would be my final inspiration to get to work on this room. So this table just fit perfectly into my plan...the only problem is:
this is my husband's latest project...
...and the seats for this wonderful truck (which he says he bought for me) are sitting in the middle of my would-be romantic, relaxing dressing room right now. Ahhh, husbands!
But now that I have my fabulous new make up table, I will be inspired to be sure he moves those seats to the temporary storage room created after my son moved out this summer...so that I can carry out the rest of my plans! I'll be sure to share pictures when it's done!
