New Fluffing around the House

Hi everyone.......It's been awhile since I posted anything. But I assure you, I have been around visiting all of you, keeping up on everything that you have been doing. I have just been behind the to speak :) Checking out all of the yumminess that is always around blogland!

With the holidays just around the corner, I started to look around my house and decided I wanted to fluff it up a little bit. Get her ready for the holidays. So I went digging around in my junque pile, pulled out a few supplies and started fluffing. Digging around in my junque stashes started to make it feel like Christmas morning, with shiny new packages just waiting to be opened!

Here is the first one I opened

I Love this window, the glass is missing and it is chippy in all the right places. Since everyone else in blogland have made wonderful burlap wreaths, I had to have one.

(Note: I just picked up some wonderful paint that I will be painting my dining room and living room walls with. It's a soft linen color. No more white walls. I know.....I probably should have painted first, but that's how I roll)

Here was the second present I opened.
I have had this 1890's farmhouse door for
a while. She was originally covered in
white chippy paint, that was making
a huge mess, so I took most of it off
(don't hate me)
I think it now has a little
warmth to it.

I wanted to feature the original wood applique/carvings.
I think they are stunning.

So beautiful, I really love the door with a more natural look and
just a hint of chippy paint.
What do you think?

I really do love chippy paint, but this was seriously flaking/shedding/molting all
over my house.

And these little treasures I unwrapped at my local thrift
store, garage sale, and at my friends sale....
I love my new little mini scale and numbers.
They make me happy :)

Little $4 rooster lamp.

Perfect vintage platter that will be partnered with this lovely frame on my wall.

And a $2 picture from the thrift store.

Hope you all are having a wonderful day........
Until Later,


  1. Love your chippy door. I think you can probably see the details better with less paint. And chippy paint can be just like dog hair. Just something more to clean up. But I have to keep the dogs. Have a wonderful week.

  2. Toni, I love all your vintage goodies. Especially the door. How wonderful to have a piece like that. I think it looks fine with most of the chippy paint removed. I hope you will share some before and after pictures at my before and after party that runs on Wednesdays. Have a great week.

  3. Hey Toni!!
    Love the chippy door!!! Your wreath is awesome! Some nice finds. Love the old frame and platter! I have missed you and your posts! It's such a busy time of the year! It's fun to see what you have been doing!
    Take care!

  6. What fun! That little scale is so cute~and the door is beautiful, with or without paint.

  7. Love your new chippy finds :o) The burlap wreath is so cute...I might have to make one myself!!!

  8. I agree - Sometimes some of the "chippy" needs to be removed. Always enjoy your posts - just post when you have time.
    Have a great week.
