Adding a Little Something

My craze to purge and organize my home is slowing down.  I have finished most of my to do areas. There is still a little more to go in the basement thanks to having to replace the sump pump.  I caught the pump overheating so I caught the problem before anything bad happened.  The good part is that I was "forced" to organize and clear up the basement.  Austin went through his stuff and has already made some money selling what he doesn't want.  (Ethan is in for it when he gets home on spring break.  He has his things to go through).

I had cleared out the front hallway when I got rid of books that were in a small bookcase.  I'm saving the bookcase for when Austin goes to college.  It is the perfect size for a dorm room.  Anyway, it was so bare and I hated it!  So, I stopped in at Anew Interiors Anew on the Woodstock Square because they were having 20% off everything in the store.  I found the perfect two tiered small table.  It was the perfect size for that space.  I wanted something tall also and it fit that requirement.  The best part is that it was $35.

This kind of table is kind of hard to display on but the cream colored pottery vases look really cute on it.  I added a small doily on top and some flowers to complete the look.  It's even cuter up close!

Sales are stopping to pop up.  Remember to add March 12 to your calendar for the Elgin High School flea market.  I'm pricing and boxing up treasures to sell there.  Also, for the month of February, all linens are 20% off at the Carriage House.  I took quite a few there yesterday.

Vintage tablecloths are piled up! My space is really full....

Happy treasure hunting!


  1. Wow you have a lot of pretty vintage linens. I bet it feels good to purge and organize things. The Elgin Flea Market sounds great. I bet you will do well.
    Happy Friday.

    1. It feels great to purge and organize. My whole house feels "lighter". I'm looking forward to the Elgin Flea Market. I've been busy organizing for it. Milena

  2. Wish I could get my hands on the vintage Tablecloths! Your new table looks great with the cream dishes on it, great choice!

    1. Hi Ann, I love the table. It makes the room look so much nicer than what I had in there before. It's more open now. Just an FYI, For the month of February, all linens are 20% off at the Carriage House so maybe you can find a vintage tablecloth that you just can't live without! Milena
