Nifty and Thrifty Stuff

Hey Ya'll,  I get so absorbed into looking at other folks posts...that I don't even think about posting myself.  I have been having computer problems like some of you, I too switched from Internet explorer and that fixed a lot of the problems.  Anyway, I have some things to show you, try as I may, I just have such a problem trying to minimize...I have decided that I ain't gonna try no more, cause it just ain't gonna work.  It's a security thing, I guess.  (Besides the fact that I like it!)  Here we go......

A shelf painted in chalk paint...not Annie Sloane...Maison Blanche.

A closer look at a section of the shelf, I dug that old cricket cage out of my Dad's junk pile.  Shed antler from the farm.

Another closer shot of the shelf.  The round disk with number's in the back is from a old green scale dismantled from Dad's junk pile.
 The dress form was a roadside find that needed a little adjustmentI gussied her up with a rusty jar ring necklace and a canvas bag from Hobby Lobby, then I hung my Goodwill chandelier from her hip.  Old screen door from Mr. Bills, (the best junk around), and added some architectural stuff to it.

The old newel post I bought from eBay and added the rusty metal weather vane to the top.

You really can't see the sign very well, but, I will show it better in a later post. I found it a the consignment shop that I take stuff to that don't work in my booth at Cotton CityThe sign came from a pharmacy, it says: Save more everyday on prescriptions, ask our pharmacist.  The deer head came from Target.  
At lot more to share....later on....bye for now.  Rhonda
