I should probably keep this set for myself...tomorrow I won't have a clue what that means.

Urgent - Opinions Wanted

We've been working on this table for the Vintage Bazaar. It's made completely, except for nails and screws, from salvaged and found materials.



I really like it...but I'm not totally sure how to best finish it. It's got so many elements going on...rusty, chippy, white, black, metal. I think it needs something to unify it. I keep coming back to black...but I'd love to know what you think.








I'd really like to hear what you think. What would you do to finish this piece?

Winter Gardening

I saw this in Midwest Living magazine this morning and had to pass it along for anyone who missed it. It's so darn cute....

Create a Magical Miniature Garden


How adorable! Great way to feed your inner gardener in the midst of all this snow. I especially LOVE that this little fairy garden is made in a vintage tin picnic basket! Too cool!!

What's more...that basket looked really familiar to me...



Hmmm....
