I’ve Found It!

Hi. I finally found a round, white, bigger table for my kitchen. It was just what I was looking for.
Found it at one of my favorite antique malls for a great price. I can now sit SIX instead of FOUR.

I love the legs and the way she painted it with the "chippy" look.


I just think it's perfect for my kitchen.

Here are my chairs before I  reupholstered them.

I loved this fabric I found to recover them with.

So, here's the old square table and old round stools.

And here's the total new look. I still have the round stools, which I'm sure I will use because I like them, too.

Antique Alley Yard Sale

The U.S 11 Antique Alley Yard sale is the first weekend after Mother's Day every year.
It runs from Meridian, MS (my home town) to Bristol, VA a total of 502 miles. How I wish I could go the WHOLE route.
I didn't spend much, but here is what I found.

May Antique Alley 001
Cute teapot for only $2. I was looking for yellow and green stuff since that's the colors I'm using in my SR right now.

May Antique Alley 003
Hard to have this simple, white basket. Also $2.

May Antique Alley 004
                             Perfect for those magazines, we ALL have too many of. :)

Yellow bowl/planter for the mantel.

This tea set was one of my favorite finds, too. It was only $8. The lady is going to mail me the sugar bowl lid. I love the petite lines of the handles and lid.

                                           A tiny, red chair just to "sit around" somewhere.

One of the stops along the way is The Simmons-Wright Store.  Look inside to see how old it is!


Old hats in the display case. Yes, they are for sale.

They say these shoes have been here since the 1930's. By the condition of the boxes, I know it's true.

Girls of the vintage blogs would probably love this. For me, the shoes were either too big or too small.
