It is Done


     The afternoon of moving and shuffling treasures from one place to another was successful- well , at least until I realized I had a couch left on the truck that needed to go back to my house. Oops.

     My daughters’ newly upholstered pieces are amazing, and I hope she will post her –re-done finds on her blog Three Hermanas.

     Here are some of the passengers on our journey today- all found at flea markets, garage sales, and my mother’s garage closet.


     The coffee table in the background and the kneeler were from a flea market. The two rockers belonged to my mother.


     The chaise is from a flea market in Houston.


     And my mother’s trunk- I have had plans for it for so long.  Maybe the time is near.

     I am off to take a muscle relaxer. This was quite a day.  Sigh.

     Join other flea market shoppers at the wonderful Flea Market Style.

Wow!! Lots of good stuff going on that truck. Would love to see what you do with your mother's trunk!

Feel better soon!

Whew, glad that's done. Did your husband notice?
Usually if you give them enough snacks in front of the TV they're oblivious! Rest up!

Love that chaise -- you should hop right on that and put your pretty little feet up after all that moving.

Love the wicker rockers! Take a breather, you've earned it!

Hi Laura!

That's some serious moving! I love your "finds". There is just nothing like finding a great treasure, is there? :-)

I'll have to check out your daughter's blog!
and your comment from morning till night? I'll think on that Laura.......that would be kind of fun to do it video and photo style no?

hope you have a great weekend, in case I'm not back here before then....
