A Coastal Upcycle (Swap It Like Its Hot)

I partnered with some pretty awesome bloggers and Modern Masters for this post. You all know, I LOVE flea markets, yard sales and antiques.  Luckily, so do my friends, so when Charlotte asked if I’d be up for a little flea market swap I just couldn’t say no.

Aaah, fall.  Despite my protestations, it has arrived.  The mornings are a little brisker walking the dog and the nights a little cooler.

Putting the Paint Brush Down

Putting the Paint Brush Down

Many people think I paint everything.  Yes. I do paint quite a lot of things – dressers, tables, pumpkins, mason jars, beds, oars. BUT….
