Restyled Sundays #17

After two weeks of being missing in blogland, I am coming back to the computer again! I hate to be a Scrooge, but I am truly glad this Christmas is over. don't get me wrong, the last two days have been delightful, but getting there was not pretty. I got so far behind this year, that I didn't buy but one or two gifts before Thursday. I have always been a last minute shopper, and this year was no different. But, I am different! I am getting old (57 years old) and I just can't shop like I used to. Ha! The joke was on me!
I had been so busy with keeping the booths at the antique mall stocked for Christmas that I almost didn't get my home decorated. In fact, I only got a few things out :(  It was really kinda nice to have a little less out, I think it is time to weed out some of the not so essential decorations.

I just want to share my favorites from two weeks ago, sorry that I missed last week....

First is these adorable sheet music ornaments from Barb at Turtles and Tails

What a cool way to restore a dresser with missing drawers.
Good Time Charlie at Redoux turned the top into a bookshelf!

And last but not least, for some great ideas for old rusty springs,

I know you have all been swamped like I was for Christmas but I would love to see if any one got any great vintage gifts. I will share mine tomorrow. Be sure to come back for more.


  1. That dresser is a great idea! I bought a bedside table from Target that has just an open space at the top and 2 drawers below, and it is one of my absolute favorite pieces of furniture, I use the open space for my laptop! That would be awesome to do it with an old dresser that needs a redo! Thanks for hosting the party!

  2. oak dresser

    What a awesome way to recover a bureau with losing storage.
    Good Time Charlie at Redoux converted the top into a bookshelf!
