Button Ball Tea Cup


I don't know about you, but I love buttons, especially vintage ones. Over the years I had collected quite a few. Anytime I see them, I can't resist. Recently, I found several containers at a yard sale of just white ones. Most of them weren't old, but I love the pearl look of some of them. What to do with them?

I had also purchased 4 Styrofoam balls for 25 cents. I wanted something for my vintage painted White Clad side table that I posted. I created this button ball and put it in a tea cup.

Black Bean and Corn Salad


I love to make all kinds of salads in the summer and this Black Bean and Corn salad is great. It is great hot or cold.

There are a lot of black bean and corn salads out there but I adapted a couple recipes to come up with my own version.

Side Table Makeover


My daughter and I were out treasure hunting when we came upon this little side table. It needed some love but I liked the fact that it looked like a mini vintage fridge. At $12 it was a no brainer.

That is not how it looked when I bought it however. It was solid but banged up.
