What's White And Chippy And Dirty All Over?

I didn't do any real thrift store or garage sale shopping this weekend. I actually scheduled a doctors appointment for myself at 9:00 AM Friday morning. Prime garage sale time. What the h-e-double-toothpicks was I thinking? And too much other stuff going on on Saturday, so the whole weekend was a shopping bust.


But I did buy this little table one day last week. It's not really thrifty, because I bought it as a antiquey type store and I paid about $15.75 more for it than I would have at a garage sale, but I still thought it was a good deal.


A little chippy paint never hurt anyone. Unless it's lead based, then maybe it has hurt some people after all.


Yes, that is my ranunculus. It's still blooming like crazy. I love this plant!


Gotta hop! Lots of stuff to get down today and so little time.

  1. I don't know, that table seemed like a pretty good score to me! Not so much a bust afterall. : )

    Love those flowers....I don't think I've ever even seen them before. This is what happens when you're raised in the city!

  6. Pam- What a sweet little table. Sometimes you just gotta spring for something like that if you really love it...even if it costs more than you would have paid at a garage sale. Love it...and yes, what WERE you thinking scheduling the Dr. appt at that time?;>) xo Diana

  10. Love your chippy table. I bought one just like it about a year ago and also paid $15 at an antique store :) Must be the going price for little white tables.

  11. Love your ranunculus. I've never tried growing those. I've seen them in our garden stores in the spring. I might have to give them a try next year.

  19. Cardinal rule of garage saling- no appointments on Friday mornings! I'm using my last 2 personal days for Friday garage sales. Nothing gets in the way of those sales- ha!
