I Won, I Won a Wonderful Giveaway

Earlier this month, Kristen from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia hosted an amazing giveaway of $50 to be redeemed at Timeless Settings which is a wonderful online shop full of unique and interesting items.  Be sure to stop by and check it out, and also stop by the owner, Sharon's Blog.

I was so excited when I learned I had won!  Yeahhhhh

I had so much fun shopping, but it was so hard to choose amongst the many things on my (want list).  It took me a few days, so here's what I decided on.  I am very happy with my choices.

I'm redecorating my guest room and this neat bucket with vintage style and a bird, is just perfect in the room.  I'm showing a few pics.....when I get the entire room finished, I debut it in a post!

Here's the bedding I'm working with.  It is a pattern from Pottery Barn a few years back.  I found it on Ebay and immediately knew it was perfect!

I've used vintage french ticking to enclose this screen-less cupboard.  It adds interest, function and texture.

I'm making linen curtains which are just about finished, and need a little more tweeking here and there.
I'm also trying to decide if I want to paint the antique bed white (I think this would be a good place to try Annie Sloan Chalk Paint).

The next item I decided on is this great galvanized shelf with hooks.....check out the vintage appeal!
This is perfect for my bathroom (also under construction) as I'm using galvanized accessories.  I'm also going to attempt to paint the countertop as I was inspired by Laura from 52 Flea.  Check out her post 

Here, I removed the glass globe and attached a vintage light cage with an Edison style bulb.
More to come on the bathroom....just searching for the right shower curtain and rug.


A lot of times I don't enter giveaways cause there's like 485 entries already, but I'm not going to let that stop me any more!  I've won 2 in the last couple of years that I have been blogging....
