Every " Rose " has its thorn

When I grabbed her largest piece in her space at the flea this morning ROSE 

was ever so gracious. I love her eye when it comes to display we have different

styles yet admire the other ones work...

I knew this settee had my name all over it...

hubs could tell by the look in my eye

that I just cleared his calendar for the afternoon

after three hours and hubs being the gem

that he is when we are working on a project

  here is the finished piece

I am linking up to the uber cool Cindy

for her Make it for Monday party

I have no patience whatsoever

he is telling me to let the stain dry

and I'm saying" no I am going to start painting "

as he is laughing I'm already getting the sander ready

imagine a wedding planner with no patience!

even mama loved it...

she is my biggest fan

Rose had some great eye candy today

this cabinet was already sold

early morning...

much love to all of you

a friend loveth at all times

Love, Love, Love the new color! I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't wait for the paint to dry. Thanks for visiting today. Always so much fun to catch up.

Your settee is absolutely GORGEOUS!! I love, love, love, it! I would love to know what paint color you used on it. I think the color would be perfect for a table I need to paint.
Hugs, Lisa

The settee looks amazing since you worked your Kate magic!! Great makeover!!

Rose's booth looks gorgeous! I love that necklace on the mannequin. We don't have fleas like that here.

I just love your style Kate!


Happy day to you!


cindy said...

Oh my! That is loverly Kate. I totally heart it. You have an amazing way with getting stuff 'just so' I wish we lived nearer to one another. I'd be buying up yer stuff before you had a chance to get it displayed :)

Sooooo glad you could Mi4M!

Absolutely GORGEOUS Princess Kate! What an incredible find and how beautifully you worked your magic on it!

I so look forward to those rare days when I'm not selling so I can walk the flea and JUST SHOP.

Enjoyed seeing you yesterday, you looked EXTRA DIVINE in that pretty dress you were sporting!

Talk to you soon.

Ohhhh, I love it!! I am so inspired when I come to visit, thank you so much!!

tara said...

oh my goodness, we were there yesterday and I missed you, but I saw Rose and your new satee, so pretty!! love what you did with it, and all the lovely accents! so bummed I missed you...sniff sniff!

trash talk said...

Goodness gracious...that is a beauty. Isn't there a rose by the name "American Beauty"? That's the perfect description for your settee!
I've wrote that scripture on a postit and stuck it to my computer. It's a lovely reminder of how much joy I find here at your place.

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

Wow! What a find.There is SOOOO much you could do with that delicious piece but I ratherlike how you've left it.. Well done you for finding it!

PS I LOVE the name of your blog.

Tricia said...

Very pretty...the way you displayed it is so nice too. I'm the same way with painting. I painted a shelf last night and had to get out the hair dryer to hurry the process along. I'm always eager to enjoy the finally product. Best wishes :)

Kate that is absolutely beautiful! I love the new color, it's perfect! I gotta believe that many of us are impatient when it comes to getting our projects finished! I need to see the results like right now! Thanks for sharing, Theresa xoxo

That piece is absolute awesomeness and I'll be very surprised if you post a pic of it in your space. I don't see how you can ever give it up!! I also love the pillows, it all gives off a feeling of glamour!


Mindy said...

Dadgummit, that's good. It's good. Really good. Keep the man and the settee! haha ~Mindy

Lolo @ The Adventures of Stig and Lolo said...

Hello gorgeous Kate! Thanks for stoppin by my blog and saying hi :D

Teresa said...

You two make a great team. This is just beaitiful. As I've said before, not everyone could have seen a gem in that settee. You did and her transformation is just perfect. ♡
