Home Sweet Home #72

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  I have been enjoying flowers in the yard this week.  I have been babying them a lot by watering them.  Very dry here.  

Did you see this picture on my blog Monday?  I had just remodeled my dining room and received all these wonderful furniture pieces from family and we are driving by a yard sale this weekend and saw this hutch.  It was marked $100 but we went back late in the day and everything was 1/2 price and we got this for $50!  I was so excited! I have always wanted a hutch like this and it is solid maple.  So now I have a great piece to show off my transferware. I was such a happy thrifty shopper!  

 So, one side of the room has that hutch and then the other side of the dining room looks like this.  I am so happy with how it turned out!!  I can't wait to decorate it for fall and Christmas!

 Now, I would like to highlight some of the posts that caught my eye last week at Home Sweet Home.
Cindy at Beaux R'eves showed off her beautiful new French bench.

Penny ay Penny's Vintage Home showed off her pretty shabby coastal bath decor.

Jill at Sew a Fine Seam showed off this great vintage cabinet.

 Must Love Junk showed off this vintage shoe rack that is a favorite of hers.

Maggie at Little Miss Maggie showed off a French family crest that she made that is wonderful!  Info in this post as to where to get French and German grain sack stencils.

There's something about those blue and white dishes that just spans decades. They never go out of style! My mom had a big set of those when I was a kid... and she still has them today.
