Mr. And Mrs. "Unique" GARAGE SALEN PARTY ON!!~:)

Today I started cleaning our Master bathroom, much needed, shower, tub, you know the drill.  Why is it when you start scrubbing it leads to a project? I decided I would change out for the season, make it a little warmer for the Fall and Winter Months.  Best part is I had everything on hand.  Led to a few projects too.
For my thrift party this week I will feature this once shabby chic picture from the 1940's. We had this style in a guest bedroom some time ago.   I somehow got a water stain on it.
It has bugged me since even though I do not have it hung anymore, I was using it as a bathroom tray.
As you can see from the counter, I had three different projects going. You will only see one today.

Water stain...very upsetting as this print is old.

I saw this cute wrapping paper, and for some reason I was very drawn to it.

The cute little card my husband gave me some time say's on the front you are UNIQUE! He gave me this before I was going to shoot the corny WOW commercial. I have kept it on my bathroom mirror ever since.

Although nothing too spectacular to share this week, I find it to be a friendly reminder of how blessed I am to have the wonderful husband that I do.  I really like it, and I think it added some zing, zang, WOW, Pow to the back of the faucet! Also, I would like your input this week.  Seeing thrifting and garage sales are slowing down. Should we only do my party every other week, and do the Before and After Party every week instead? I would love your opinions please. Thanks for joining me...See you tomorrow when the GARAGE SALEN party link goes up.

Why is it when we set out to clean house we end up redecorating? That's what happens to me! Your new decor looks great but I want to know if you finished cleaning the shower?

Debbie, that is such a great idea! I have a little inexpensive tray that I don't use right now and this would be a great way to spruce it up and give it some new life! Thanks for the great inspiration you clever lady you!
Now if I could only feel inspired to go clean my shower. Yuck!

I love the paper. It reminds me of that picture of you and Mike in your heading. You two are really happy together, and that shot makes me smile. I think maybe alternating weeks for your parties?
I will most likely be back next week and have my garage sale finds that I can't wait to share, but alas, if you go every other week, I'll wait.

What a sweet husband to give you a card. I can't remember the last time my husband gave me a card unless it was my Birthday, Valentine's Day or our Anniversary.

As far as Garage Salen - it is soooo slow here. If you are getting more and more people in the Before & After it might make sense to switch it up for the winter months.

Hey Debbie- Very cute idea. I have a couple of those "frames" with "stains" waiting on me to do something with day.. I love the way you have it propped behind the faucet and the little card that means so much!

As far as the party-I don't have time to join them..but I love to see all the before and afters. I will be happy to visit you no matter what you do!

Just back from vacationland and one day to decompress before heading back to was fun while it lasted! Hugs- Diana

That is cute paper and I love it framed. That was so sweet of your hubby to give you that card for that special occasion in your life. I say do whatever you want for the party times. Either way is good.

I love what you did to the picture/tray. It looks great.

Yeah, winter garage sales in Ohio? Not happening. BUT! There still are auctions and thrift stores. I'll be hanging around your blog no matter what you do. You can't shake me that easily. :o) La

I think the tray looks awesome and what a wonderful reminder about your sweet hubby. I'm so blessed to have a wonderful husband also and I hope I never take him for granted.

Just this morning at the gym a guy in class asked me why I never worked out with my husband. I replied "he's working" which of course was a wonderful reminder to me that I can be a stay at home princess because Hubby's my prince.

I know a lot of bloggers have that "Winter" thing I've heard so much about, but we're always redoing stuff, so it might be a good idea.

And the card is wonderfully cute and corny, just what love should be.

Great little redo for the water stained print. A shame though. I am slowing down on the thrift shopping. There is an estate sale this weekend but I just don't think I have the time to get there. So whatever is good for you!

Debbie, I love your redo of this perfume tray. I say perfume tray because in the 50's my mother had a perfume tray with the same pattern on the edges. At the time it had a mirror on it and held her collection of bottles. Mostly "White Shoulders" perfume.

Love the graphic, and makes a fun backdrop for your special card, too! For me, most of my posts are thrift store items anyway, so I am fine either way!

I love that paper, too. Looks great.
I spent all day today, TRYING to dust but ended up just moving things around all over the place. I think us ladies are just born that way, don't you?

Either way on your meme is good with me. I LOVE before and afters, altho I seldom have any to share.

I love your transformation of the tray.
It is sad that garage sales are winding down, I still have more to go to this weekend.
I don't have any thrift stores in my area, I have a few antique and consignment stores that I go to.
I realized the other day I've spent almost $200 this year at garage sales, not very good if you're trying to save money, but I love looking at other people's things, and it's always cheaper than buying it in a store.

Anytime I set out to clean I get distracted with projects. They are so much more fun.
I like your framed paper. I often find paper and cards that scream to be framed.
Have a good week-end, Annette

That is a pretty print Debbie, and using it as a tray is a good idea.

We are both lucky to have such good hubbys!
