So much of the Dior home furnishings

are repaired, restored or recycled...

{Wall Art from produce flats}

Since I use a neutral pallet

everything works throughout our home...

Something Old, Something New & my winner

Sometimes you just have to take the OLD

and transform it into that NEW special treasure

that you will cherish forever...

I'm one of those gals who loves to

rescue the unwanted!

I scooped up this OLD trunk headed for the trash.

The trunk was covered in a black covering that was

cracked, warped and just plain yuck!

Mr. Dior has such patience and he razored

off all of the outer shell to reveal

the beautiful weathered wood underneath

New to me coffee table...

There you have it rusted hinges

and OLD weathered wood

Love at its finest...

Later I found an OLD wood crate

that made my heart leap

along with another OLD vintage dresser that

was in need of some New love.

Then I added my NEW pillows that

my friend Loretta sewed for me out

  of an OLD cement bag

that I have been holding on to

with such love for a year now!

Since the cement bag was large enough Loretta

was able to make me two pillows

with zipper enclosure and down inserts...

 Gracie girl just started looking at Pinterest

 and fell in love with

the Union Jack!

I grabbed a few old produce wood flats

that I purchased for 3 dollars

at the flea market and we got busy!

Gracie was so excited to help and

make one for her room as well...

  I think she kinda got Union Jack fever!

 Now for the winner of my Summer Giveaway!

The lucky winner will receive

{2 vintage metal locker baskets}

{coral & driftwood}

Congratulations to...

One man's trash...

There she was sitting amongst the

trash cans begging me to love her...

A simple yard sale made

my heart skip beats as the gentleman

said I could " take the trash off of his hands "

She was missing much of her back and yet

she held her beauty with chippy remnants

of paint and beveled drawers...

Even with her weather beaten top

I knew I could not leave her behind...

Mr. Dior spent many hours along side me

as we worked to bring new life

back to her...

She fit so perfectly in the Dior home...

Along side my rusted

clocks and coral...

I was so delighted that

she still had her original hardware...

I'm sure that I will

dress her up throughout the summer...

With driftwood

and gifts from the sea...

Isn't she lovely...

I gave her my signature

dry brushed gray white mix

and sealed her with clear wax...

One man's trash

another woman's treasure!!!

I will be linking later this week

with my favorite gals!

Much love to all of you
