Blog Party Time!!

Today we are participating in the Etsy Cottage Style Blog Party and since Marcela already wrote about the subject on that blog, this post it's all about me and "What makes my heart skip a beat"

This is an easy one!!
I would totally jump out of a moving car to grab white architectural pieces in a garage sale...

I will get out of bed early, very early in a Saturday morning just to find perfectly shabby-ed (is that even a verb????) windows...

I will definitely dive in a dumpster if I can walk away with old wooden pieces to add to my collection of candlesticks...

What can I say?...It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful!!

If you would like to share what makes YOUR heart skip a beat, visit the Etsy Cottage Style Blog and sign up using Mr. Linky...fun, fab stuff will be shared there!!

I love the chippy too, but someone else around here does too, because they beat me to it at all the sales--maybe if I could go without my coffee???? nah, dont think that would work LOL

Oh Clara~ To know that you'd dive into a dumpster for a good find makes me chuckle. I would too. But if my macho man is around, I make him dive in instead. It makes him feel like a man to do things like that for me. Whatever works. Hugs & kisses to you two. When you guys head into NYC, you and Marcela are welcome to stay in our cozy guest cottage anytime. I would love to meet you guys.

Okay...I'm a psychiatric nurse...where I come from, jumping out of a moving car is considered "danger to self" therefore qualifies for inpatient admission. But a white chippy window or frame would definately be a good reason for a jump!!

Great finds! I'm the only one in my group of ladies that likes architectural remnants! Everybody else always says "what are you gonna do with that!" Oh well, makes more for the rest of us!
