Hi Everyone! Here it is Monday already - hope you all have plans to make it a great week. I have quite a few projects on the burner along with the fun of having a crown put on later this afternoon (and not the pretty kind with diamonds and such! I wish!).
But, onward and upward to some fun finds. Mr. Bluebird and our Sweet Daughter took me to Fox Lake Country Antique Mall in Occonomowoc last month for my birthday. I had never been to this mall before, but oh my goodness I will be going there regularly! It is beyond awesome. It's huge and their selection cannot be topped. Needless to say, it was the perfect way to spend my birthday!
I have a project going on that I needed three old wooden boxes for. After searching for a few months, I just wasn't having any luck. They were either wayyyyy too pricy or were labeled "Embalming Fluid" (what???!) or "Explosives" or the color/size/shape wasn't quite right.
I was so happy to find two of the boxes I wanted at Fox Lake. I especially liked the Wisconsin connection and graphics on each of the boxes. I remember having Graf's sodas at all of our family parties when I was growing up.
When I got them home, they were quite dry. Out came my Parker & Bailey Orange Oil Polish - gosh, I love this stuff.
I found mine at Marshall's/Home Goods and it's only $4.99 a bottle. It smells heavenly!
You can really see the transformation in the picture above. What a contrast.
Here they are - all oiled up and looking their best!
And for a little sneak peak into where these boxes will be going, I leave you with a view of our upstairs hall closet. However, things are not as they appear.............stay tuned. It's going to be awesome! Really, it is. But, I have to make you wait because Mr. Bluebird has a few finishing touches he needs to help me with before it can all come together.
Check out my Clean Slate Monday post here to read about my somewhat of a fail week at organizing in the new year!
What's on your planner for this week?
