New Look

This week here at my nest I've been changing things up a tad...pulling out some fall items...painting some items with my ASCP...buying a new lamp (gotta deal on this one ladies) have you been busy fluffin' your nest? A few of these items were a THRIFTY purchase, but I'm keeping the price of them a secret until my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY PARTY is up and please come on back and see what great deals I got. The party gets started on Monday around fiveish (cst). ..hope to see all of you there and with your party shoes on!!!
                                            Would love to hear
                                             what you think of
                                              my latest fluffin'
Welcome to my nest at
                                 Now I must have a little coastal
                                      charm as you enter...don't
                                                  ya think?
                                       So what does a gal do?
                                       Well she pulls out her
                                        paint brush and some
                                     ASCP and goes to work!!!

                      So what color does she use? Paris Grey is her choice
                    today. I painted this old wooden bowl white a few years
           today I added some paris gray...sanded and then
                 some of Annie's clear wax...oh how I LOVE her NEW LOOK!!
                                         Added some feathers to
                                             my vintage basket!

                                      I purchased this lamp for
                                     my cottage makeover, but
                                     for now...the foyer will be
                                                 her home.
                                            A touch of chicken wire
                                                 is always FUN!!!
                                       My favorite part of the lamp
                                       was her shade and her price!
I love mix and matching
when it comes to
lamps and just
can't pass up
an awesome about you?

Linking up here...

Oh, I hope i remember this party.

No, I just don't change season here except at Christmas.
Tucking in some new found items from the yard sale today tho. Does that count as fluffing? Chuckle.

Have a lovely & safe holiday weekend.

I love the changes you made. I have not done anything here yet. Still feels too much like summer. Love those long feathery stems! The lamp is so cute. I'm sure you got a steal.

Good Morning Linda,
It's always fun to fluff the nest a bit, isn't it. You put together a lovely vignette. I keep thinking I need to try the ASCP but haven't invested in it yet.
Enjoy your day.

Great lamp and shade.I like your changes for Fall. Love your pheasant feathers and that little bit of chicken wire on the lamp. Looking forward to seeing your new thrifty finds.

Lynn @The Vintage Nest said...

I have a thing for Pheasant feathers and have a few I used in a vintage vase with sticks and moss. I have had it so long. But my big collection is duck feathers 'cause that's what resides on the lake. They are pretty too. Love your fluffing! xo
