Hi Ladies, the weekend is nearly over, just a few more hours to relax before another week begins. I've had a busy week with visitors and this weekend garage saleing and today my youngest daughter Kodi and I went to the flea markets. I can't wait to get my hands on the paint and get stuck into all my latest finds. Love the dresser. A new lick of white paint and some crystal handles, What do you think? Didn't we have fun trying to cart all of this back to the car. Kodi is only 10, so it was a few steps, then have a rest.....you know how it goes. But, we got there eventually. It was a good day. Hope you all had a great weekend, and enjoy the week ahead. Mine will be busy I'm sure! Cindy
Hi all, thought i would sit down and relax after a very HOT day at the markets today and check all your lovely blogs. We even resorted to sitting there with our feet in a bucket of cold water to try and cool down. What a difference that made. It was a quiet market day, i think the heat kept people at home, but i'm sure next time will be better. We are looking into doing more markets in and around our area. Yesterday my youngest daughter Kodi-Lee and i went to a few garage sales and although we didn't find alot of treasures, i did find this gorgeous small vase. The lustre on it is just beautiful, i couldn't pick it up quick enough. I just love it. Also, this stool we repainted and recovered was sold today at the market. Deep down i was hoping it wouldn't sell, because then it would have made its way into our bedroom. Ooops! But someone else has the pleasure of having it. I hope they enjoy it. Cindy
Hi everyone, well another week gone by, and never enough time to do all the things we wish we could have done. Although, today i managed to have a small production line running. It's nearly 11.30pm here and i've jut sat down, so I thought i would show you what i made. I have another market on Sunday, and supplies were low after the market we did last weekend, so i had to get busy. Tomorrow i will be out and about garage saleing to see what goodies i can find there. Hope you all have a good weekend. Looks like it's going to be very hot here, so try and keep cool! Cindy
Hi everyone, well New years has come and gone and we're back to the grindstone. Yesterday we decided to do a new market at Moss Vale Showground. When we got out of bed and went outside it looked pretty gloomy, but we (my hubby) and I thought it was only fog and would probably lift early morning, as it was only 6 am at the time. So off we went, trailer packed and car so full was only enough sitting room for him, our daughter Kodi-Lee and myself with things packed on our laps. We finally got set up and the mist started rolling in, then next thing you know the rain started. The fog wasn't lifting at all. So suffice to say it was a pretty wet, miserable day out. But as the day drew on, quite a few people had decided to brave the weather and wander out. As i was sitting there watching the people wander around i spotted Sarah from Shabby Roses & Pretty Things. It was lovely to meet you Sarah, and i hope you enjoy the plates. I've been following Sarah for a short while now, and new she lived in the area, so it was a lovely surprise. So despite the weather, it was a very successful day at the markets in more ways than one. I will have to post some pics of some new items i made. Bye for now girls, have a great week. Cindy

Hi, my name is Cindy and i am a lover of all things Shabby. I live in the Southern Highlands NSW, Australia. I have a wonderful husband, 4 beautiful children, 3 of whom are all grown up.. it happens too fast! I love to find old furniture and make it new again, nothing like a coat of white paint to make a piece smile! As well as me. Will try to take lots of pics for you to see. I also love making lots of different crafts for around the house, finding the time is the hard part. I'm a learner at blogging, but please be patient. I will get there eventually. More soon!
