Two reveals today: Curbside find completes the Christmas porch, and the Beatles mug reveal…WHO WON the Chic-Fil-A gift card for coming the closest in guessing the price on the Beatles’ mug!
But before we get to that….
On my way last week to a Christmas party, I spied a pile of red wood on the side of the road. Running late I told myself I didn’t have time to stop and besides I was dressed in nice clothes and not my grubs. Only 2 blocks further and the junker in me won out. I was so glad I stopped because I found THIS (in pieces)!
All that was wrong with it…..
Nothing a little glue, wood scrap, and red paint won’t fix.
Don’t you love those curbside finds??
I’m really on the lookout for more discarded treasures. This week I thought I saw a ski…yeah I know…not much skiing in Alabama, right? Turned out it was the red reflector on someone’s mailbox post!
I love how this beautiful curbside find completes the Christmas porch! Thought I was through with decorating, but hey, there’s always room for one more, right??
Adding one of my little Christmas trees to dress it up…
And a little handcrafted sign I made out of scrap wood, paint, and glitter….
That’s my wish for you, dear friends! A very merry Christmas!
And now The Big Reveal!
From last week, I told how I saw this Beatles’ mug at a local antique shop and fell instantly in love…
It may not be authentic…
It may not be truly vintage…
But I don’t care!
It’s my favorite group in the whole wide world!
It’s the Beatles!
Diehard fans, check out this Beatles post….Hottest-yard-sale-buy/
I LOVED it! (Swoon & sigh…)
But not $89 worth!!!
Not even for the Beatles!!!!
For the closest guess at $85, the winner of the $10 Chic-Fil-A gift card is……….Carol from The Red Painted Cottage!
Until next time~
DON’T FORGET TO PIN!
