Making My World a Little Prettier

I found this globe the other day. The globe was nice and I loved the colors on it, but I thought it could look even prettier. I altered it a bit with some rub on decals(easy peasy).

I went a little crazy with all the butterflies but why not?  The more the merrier.

Just making my world a little prettier.

I Relish A Good Find

Look at my latest
thrifty Goodwill find.

I love these vintage
Holt Howard condiment jars.

The top lifts up to reveal a built in spoon.

How could you not help but smile looking at this cute face?

A Garage Sale Find

I was so happy to find this sweet 1930's tea cart.  The painted roses on it are so charming. The original owners said they were thinking of refinishing the piece and stripping away all the paint.

I am so glad that they didn't.
Have you found any treasures lately?
