Some Completed Projects and Auction Finds

Remember the dresser I bought off of craigslist? Well, this is the completed dresser minus the top pulls. They are now on. One was broken and I found a replacement on eBay.  I love how it turned out and it looked so lovely in the bedroom.
I painted this little statue... I think he is so cute!

This is the chandelier all painted and ready to go.... I love how it turned out.

Last night we went to an auction and I got a few good finds.... Like this mirror. For $30.00
I wanted one particular picture and they lotted them together with these not so attractive paintings...

This one isn't bad but it isn't my style, Levi likes it though.
This was the one I was after. I thought it was so pretty... I don't know if I can sell her I like her so much.

I got some pretty china.  For cheap.....
This is one of my favorite things... Do you know what it is? It is a gentleman's shaving chest. Inside were so many treasures. An old Masonic book written in secret code. It was copyrighted 1941.  Bullets with 1939 written on them and many other manly treasures....

Lastly is this wonderful floor lamp... It is old you can tell by the cord and just its general appearance. I am going to fix this up real cute..(fingers crossed) 

 I have been extremely busy trying to get it all together.  I am praying it will all turn out well. I can't help but have doubts about the whole thing...but I am in it to win it. Savanah has been helping me and so has Levi. My husband has also been amazing about helping me. He took me to the auction and stayed with me from 3:00-8:30. He got me drinks and M&M's.(love) We were looking around at the auction when I ran into my Aunt and Uncle doing the same thing. (great minds think alike) So it turned into a family affair! She got the most beautiful dollhouse and curio cabinet. We were two happy girls!  I hope you all are having a blessed weekend.
