Hearty Fun, Finds and Give Away

I had some luck at estate sales this weekend. I am toying around with the idea of renting a spot in an antique store. We shall see. Here is a peek at my goods:

We aren't sure what Matrons and Patrons is all about, but I loved this picture. I bought it at an old house about a mile from mine. It has to be one of the orginal homes in our area. Unfortunately I am sure it will be torn down and replaced with apartments since it sits on a very large lot on a busy street. If I am arressted for sneaking in and stealing moldings, columns, etc. will you bail me out?

The suitcase (opps forgot to take off the tag) will be transformed in an upcoming episode of Dickey's Decor. The lamp also will be transformed. I saw it on Friday night at Salvation Army and took a gamble it would still be there today when they had a 50% off sale. It was! The watering can will be sold and the iron brackets? I have some ideas. I picked up a few other things, but didn't want to haul them out to the garage for pictures. Overall I am a happy girl!

We had four basketball games for my son and as a result were busy. I managed to finish this though:

I picked up the frame at Salvation Army for .99 and covered the cardboard backing with scrapbooking paper. Next, I hot glued velvety hearts on. Badabing badabang.

Since I am trying to drum up some readers I thought I would conduct my first give away this week. I will send a lovely burlap LOVE banner to one lucky winner. Simply become a follower and a random winner shall be chosen this Saturday.
This is an awful picture, but these babies are long...
