Old & New

I am working on changing the look of my booth at the Antique Company Mall in McKinney. I still have nests and birds, but my color theme is now leaning toward robin egg blue and brown. The pegboard will be painted a linen/burlap color.

My old ruler is now in a diva crown shape instead of a star.

Spring into spring!

(This idea came from Brandy .)

I bought this piece while on my Warrenton trip. It is an old Tom's Candy Cabinet. I took the door off and sat it to the side for more display. The inside has been Ella-fide with corrugated cardboard and old book pages.
After I had paid the man who sold this to me, he started telling me how it had fallen out of the back of his truck on his last trip and then showed me where he had glued it all back together!
-using liquid nails...
(MDH sanded it back to a better finish.)

I love taking anything old and new and giving it a different life!
