This was the first time I set up the Tents
on the "side of our house"...

BeST F*I*N*D from this WeekEnd's SHaBBy ShoPPinG...

Tag On... Tag Off...  
That's the "Story" with this Little Gem Of A F*I*N*D ~ from this past WeekEnd's SHaBBy ShoPPing!!!


Looking for some "special little somethings" to complete my "Show Stock" for this UpComing Weekend's ViNtaGe Market, in Door County Wisconsin, I "Vamped Over" - THEN BOUGHT, this darling little cubby at the Grayslake Flea this past Saturday... 
***Current Status - Tag Off**
I just have to keep it - FOR AWHILE!!!

  

 The Cubby Drawers have such great character
 with the exposed "dove-tailed" corners
 & funky rusty metal knobs...




 The Arched Top Apron lends so much
 character to the piece...





Hope to SEE YOU at the 
ViNtaGe Market Show
On SaTurDaY, July 14th...
