Hi Rene:

WOW what a jackpot you hit with the cabinet and lovely silver pieces, I would be in heaven to go through those lovelies and "play house" with them..... thank you kindly for the award, I am humbled and will post it on my blog when I return from my fathers funeral.

Lots of blog love,

Wow!! Love your $5 steal - what a little treasure trove!! The glass hardware alone is worth way more than that!! SCORE!! And the patio furniture - wonderful!!

BTW, I've detected no whining here...be gentle with yourself during these times...we're here for you through the good the bad and the ugly...

Take care and have some fun with your new goodies. I live for before and afters...can't wait to see the transformations and projects that a true artist can do with the humblest of materials! :o)

Hugs and Blessings,
Becky S.

Dearest Rene,

Great finds! Love that little cabinet and that patio set is gorgeous. I passed on one just like that only already painted white. Now I wish I had it. Thanks for giving me and my little blog an award. You are too, too sweet.

XO,

Wow, Rene! The white cabinet was a great price empty! I can almost feel the pitter patter of your heart when you heard the contents were included! Love the tent idea for selling your shabby white wares. So cozy!
