Pickin and a Grinnin !!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I just had to show you what I found or should I say picked !   I stopped by the Habitat Resale Store and there she was, sitting right there whispering, "Pssst...Sissie, you know you want me...pick me!  You bet your sweet shapely wicker self I do. Some other lady was eyein her too and I was thinkin I wasn't in the mood to grab her by her hair and wrestle her down to the floor!  

So, I paid right away and loaded her into the car!  I was grinnin all the way to the shop.

I didn't have to do one thing to this sweet vanity table and chair, no painting, no sanding, no cleaning.  Love that. 
Looks so pretty in my booth.
If no one buys it, it will be all mine...(snarky laugh inserted)

I found this sweet 1970's style french provincial table. Thought it had potential.  I forgot to get a before photo, sorry.  But, I think you can imagine that
mustard gold color that used to be on all of this style furniture in the 70's.  I used Benjamin Moore's color, georgian
green and I like how it turned out.
I love the shape and the legs, hope someone else does too.

Just had to feature one of my burlap and rosette pillows....

Made these for breakfast.  Yes, they are made from scratch!
I am not much of a cook but this West Virginia Mountain girl can make some homemade bisquits...

Oh, Sissie, I just LOVE LOVE LOVE French provincial table!! Gorgeous!!!! Tee hee, I could just see you all sweet as honey tackling that lady if she dared to take your vanity!!!

Hi there Sissie,
I can just imagine you wrestling that poor woman to the ground for your gorgeous wicker dressing table! I am drooling over it! I would have a hard time parting with that lovely. And I am also drooling over your biscuits. Here in Michigan we enjoy them with pure maple syrup. Yum! Oh, and lots of butter, of course!

Hi Sissie -
That lady was lucky you weren't feeling like a good wrestle! :) Lucky you, that was an awesome score. I LOVE your green table, she has beautiful details and beautiful legs.

when did you change the blog background and header? I love it I usually read you in
Google Reader so I don't see all this pretty stuff unless I leave a comment. I was so thrilled with the new look I forgot what I was going to comment on. The biscuits yummy!

Cathy~Mille Fleur said...

Oh my goodness! If you were closer I might have to have the wicker would be beautiful in my daughters room! The little side table is so yuumy with it's new paint color! You always find the best goodies!


Terry said...

What a great find you have there! And not having to do anything to it is a bonus! I'm so envious of you - congrats!

What a great find your wicker table was! Looks so pretty with all of your pink display! Very sweet and feminine. Love your green table! Great lines and great color! I also love love love that rosette pillow!! How sweet is that. That would go well in my guest room.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Ha! The day you wrestle someone to the ground and pull hair over a piece, make sure you hand your camera off to someone for pictures! : ) Love this green, Sissie! I am adding that color to my list of must try colors. What a great little side table.

Nancy said...

How lucky to have snagged that wicker set! It's so pretty; I can't imagine nobody buying it. The green color you used on that other table is nice.


Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

How funny, I was just at our local Habitat store today, too! But I sure didn't come across anything as wonderful as that wicker set, WOW!!!

Ozma of Odds said...!! It looks brand new!! ~ and already right at home in your shop!! I will grin right along with you for such a great find :)

Annie Louise said...

Your post made me laugh--hey if you have to wrestle someone to the ground to get what you want go for :) Love the wicker and love the table, great color.
Thanks for sharing.

Amy Kinser said...

Love your pillow. You do so good on them all.

Your biscuits look delish...


Hi Sissie, I would have paid to see you wrestle that lady to the floor, ha ha! I love the wicker set and your painted green table, so pretty! Thanks for the chuckle this evening.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

I have a booth also, and I know what you mean when you don't have to paint or clean an item what a treat. That is a pretty green table. Sissie, I always sell white stuff and have just occasionally dabbled in other colors, what color besides white sells best for you in your booth?


Crystal Rose Cottage said...

The wicker is really lovely! Lucky you! I also love the green table! I think you picked the perfect color for it!~Hugs, Patti

Jeannette said...

The vanity is so pretty, and how fun to have it perfect right from the start! The biscuits look mighty good as I'm sitting here finishing a cup of coffee...

Diane said...

Hi Sissie! Bloggerette Heidi stopping by to say "HI"! It is taking me a while to get to all of our sisters sites. I love all of your sweet shabby treats! HUGS Heidi @

Char said...

I totally would have wrestled that lady to the ground for this if need be!! Gorgeous piece! What luck!
Thanks for sharing, (and making me swoon!)


Gorgeous! You have to do what you have to do... wrestling and all! ha! this is a beautiful post. As always my dear.

Dorthe said...

Sissie, what a great wonderfull buy, love it, and would love to have it here!!!
your light green table, is so fantastic, too, and both looks very gorgeus with your pillow,together.
have a great week-end, dear.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

No, no! You must not wrestle in public. NOT the thing to do. Arm that's acceptable....if it's done discreetly...and..pinching...yes pinching the upper under arm is acceptable... as least I think so. But out and out wrestling..hmmm..I really am glad you didn't do that. That is the cutest little wicker vanity...and the green table..really nice. I wrote down the paint's really so pretty. and Rebecca have given me a yen for white! I 've always loved it, but now...I am wanting to paint everything least in the living room.
Cute buy's, Sissie!

Happy Pink Saturday Sissie Sweetie...
Oh my goodness what characters your two cats are. Imagine that not wanting to participate in Pink Saturday. Can you say "Snootie"? I would say they are definitely NOT related to you.

Now your pinks are so pretty. I love the bracelet. It is so gorgeous, and definitely you. I love your couch cushions and I would keep the color. It makes the kitties happy. They said so. I love it.

Your wicket desk set? Oh my gosh what a find. I, like the rest of the gals, can't believe you took it to your shop. I would have had that in my room so fast, my head would still be spinning. Love it. The green table, PRICELESS. I love it.

Those biscuits, oh girl you had me at homemade. I love biscuits and gravy ofcourse. I am the dunkin kind of gal. I love to dunk everything, even my toast. Yummy. Could you send a dozen my way for breakfast?

Hope you have a beautiful day sweet friend. Please pop by and see my pink post. Who knows you might see something familiar?

Love ya girl. Country hugs, Sherry

Diann said...

Hi Sissie!

Oh My! That wicker vanity was a wonderful find! I love it. I would have snagged that up quickly too! And the table is so sweet! love the details in it!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Stephanie ~ Angelic Accents said...

Love the wicker piece and I'd have snatched it, too! Do I spy a sweet accent lamp on it?!?

Love your new burlap/rosette pillow. Biscuits look pretty yummy, too!

Big TX Hugs,
