Hidden treasures.

Hello!!

I was on my favorite website again JossandMain.com and found this fabulous table. Let me start by saying that my house is a craftsman and the living space is not that big, I have a huge kitchen with an island with (3) stools. At the island is basically were all the eating and gathering is done. So I said to my husband we don't have a dining area, we have this big space by the fireplace that is not being used. I had him measure the space and I could fit a 42" width table well I started my task of being Chief Purchasing Officer for my home (by the way this is what I do at my full-time Job) isn't that funny. Found the table and it fit perfectly and the price was great $200.00, but after finding this great table I needed chairs. I refused to pay top dollar for chairs and every chair that I priced was between $125.00 - $180.00 each, child bye! I was not paying that my budget was $50.00 - $65.00 each. I hit craigslist and nothing jumped at me.

Well my husband said you know I have chairs down stairs in the basement from my bachelor days and they are pretty much what you are looking for, given the pictures I kept showing him. So I was like really!! he said yes you don't remember them when we were dating? I am like NO!!! so he proceeded to go down stair and bought back these gems from our basement....Yesss!! just what I was looking for just needs a little paint and TLC and my dining room is going to look fabulous. Well he had (4) chairs two of them had arms, and the other two were without arms which made my d├ęcor eclectic.

So only thing I have to get is some chalk paint from AnnieSloan.com and get to work....so excited the after is going to look dazzling. My cute cozy craftsman house is done DIY and on a nickel and I can't even say a dime.

So this is the color I was thinking of painting the chairs,
the dresser color pretty teal blue!
such cool blues Anniesloan.com

 table from JossandMain.com I ordered this on Sunday and it was delivered Wednesday!
still thinking about painting the whole table white?? creative wheels are spinning.


 Here are my hidden treasure...
it was his first furniture purchase years ago!

once these are sanded and paint applied they are going to look good,
 keep checking for the finished product.


Have a blessed Resurrection Sunday all,
remember Jesus took the fall and thought of us above all!!

Beautiful flowers!

Hello my friends!!

its been a while since my last post I have been extremely busy with my business and work. My job sent me to a conference last week, great because it was a day off and great because it was sitting all day. I know that sounds a little boring but the information was great, pertaining to my job. I love learning and gaining wisdom in every area of my life. So bring on the conferences I feel powerful and they are detrimental to my knowledge of how to do my job effectively. I run my department well and my staff is happy but there is always room for improvement.


Enough of that -  been so busy with my orders and getting flowers out for the spring I forgot to blog! shame on me...but I am back and doing more projects. Bought a few more item form my favorite website JossandMain.com you really must visit this site and also OneKingslane.com which I think are owned by the same people, but nice stuff.

How many of you have visit Joescrabshack.com well my mother loves this place she would eat there every week on her days off. if you ordered a drink they give you this cool mason jar to keep, well I have decided to use my jar as a spring floral arrangement how cute the flowers are burlap from kirklands.com such a great buy at $2.99 each and I had FREE shipping and 20% off.  I added a piece of burlap and lace around the jar these are going on my outside dining table for
Easter brunch.
 
Tulips are ready to adorn this beautiful vase, I had a friend ask me to make an arrangement for her home, she has a beautiful home and its gray and white,
so we added these spring tulips to give it a pop of color YELLOW...see below.

ta-da the finished product she has worked her gift again Yasss!!
 
these beauties were requested by a customer whose home was adorned in these spring colors, so I pulled the colors from her curtains...aren't they gorgeous this set will cost you $145.00 so Kelly came up with a new name for my floral business "Is it fake or is it Trina" don't try and steal this its copyrighted as of today! I love it....
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

So I am still finishing up these for a nursing home
 these will go in each of the patients room, anything to brighten there living quarters and put a smile on there faces.


my husband is suppose to be helping not sure what he is doing???



 
Have a great day all peace and blessings for a awesome week.
