Amelia's Transformations

Amelia bought the scale at Bonnie & Clyde Trade Days, then perched her bunny on top.  The candlesticks that she bought for $1 or $2 each, she painted white.

 She bought the plates and candelabra from different vendors.  Then painted the candelabra and attached the plates.

 Her purchases before being altered.

We had a great time at that flea market, spent very little money, enjoyed hours of looking, and wore ourselves slap out.
I wish I had Amelia's decorating abilities, but even when I copy her,
my things don't turn out the same.


  1. Jenclair, Amelia got some great things and I love what she did with them! I love her rag banner-very Eastery! Have a great day!

  2. Sherri - Some of them are in preparation for a baby shower, but she can use them again and again. I love her rag banner, too!

  3. I envy people who can do that...

  4. Rian - I do, too. It takes a good eye, and Amelia always manages to pull things off.

  5. Love love LOVE that candelabra with plates! Must go thrusting THIS WEEK!

  6. Jerri - Isn't that a great idea? Perfect for cupcakes and other delicious delicacies! I can't wait to see it filled with goodies this weekend. Amelia really does put things together well!

  7. Hey, Honey! I think we ALL talk to ourselves while crafting. My hubby actually tells jokes to himself! I will see his lips moving, very little sound, and then he will smile really big, like YES...I AM SO FUNNY! and then I will ask him what he is saying, and he snaps out of it, and says...OH, nothing. LOL! Thanks for the pop over to my site! I am on yours most days, even if I don't comment always...I am there!

  8. GASP! I was back on this post to add a bookmark on my THRIFTY TO DO LIST, and I notice my comment a couple back said that I must go "thrusting" instead of thrifting...if I don't find a way to shut off the auto correct on my iPad, I am going to be bonkers! Nevertheless...bookmark is added an life can go on! Toddles!

  9. Jerri - I noticed the "thrusting" and laughed, but I knew what you meant!

    As to talking to myself, sometimes I claim I'm talking to the cats. What difference does that make? :) Edgar, Stinker, and Lucy are not at all interested in my crafting, reading, or cleaning, but I address them anyway!


Good to hear from you!
