Hi MMS readers! Kathleen here from Between blue and yellow. So happy to be helping Marian pick favorites this week while she is in Toronto. So here we are with my first favorite.  This beautiful piece from Q is for Quandie, is painted a classic black but I love how she left a few details natural wood.  That little mirror on the back just adds to it's character. My next favorite is this  (read more …)

 I can't believe that I totally forgot FFF again!  I was very focused on things I needed to do before my trip and I lost track of the day of the week and posted something else.  Well, FFF is usually posted on a Thursday, so this week, we're having FFF truly on a Friday! I'll be more on top of things next week, hopefully, and will have some favorites for you again. Here are the rules for  (read more …)

My mom and I went out shopping today, but I have to say I was pretty blurry-eyed after shopping all day yesterday with Kriste.  You would think that shopping for antiques would be something I wouldn't grow weary of, but I've learned that I need it in doses or everything starts to blend into the cacophony of stuff lining the shelves and crowding booths.  I did find some good things today, though,  (read more …)

Hello, all!  I did have a chance to pick favorites tonight.  Yay!  I really needed the chill time on the couch after packing look books all day.  My back is letting me know.  Anyway, the black pieces tonight were catching my eye, so I decided to feature these black beauties... This buffet by Danielle of Antique Recreation is simple, classic and pretty.  It was a little wild when she bought  (read more …)

I didn't pick favorites tonight and I have a good reason.  It was my youngest son's 6th birthday.  We were eating pizza, Batman cake and ice cream and I was the piece finder for his new Lego set.  I then cuddled with him.  He started crying as he was brushing his teeth and I asked him what was wrong.  Between sobs and big, sad tears he shared, "I'm so sad that my birthday is almost over!"  So, of  (read more …)

Good evening, all!  I thought yesterday was Thursday and it was freaking me out.  I had my week planned out and I suddenly found myself way behind and totally in the weeds.  I didn't know how I was going to get it all done.  Jeff finally informed me that it was only Wednesday.  Whew!  All was right with the world and I wasn't as over-committed as I thought I was. So, now that today is Thursday,  (read more …)

Good evening all.  Again, there were some great makeover this week!  I think the furniture makeovers are in full swing this time of year, so there are a lot of great things to choose from.  Here are my favorites from last week's shindig. I think this butler's pantry by Emily of Eleven Gables is such an amazing, luxurious space.  I love the idea of making a utilitarian space pretty and  (read more …)

I found some really great features for you tonight.  There were a lot of great ones, but these three were no-brainers for me to feature.  Enjoy the party! This pair of "map cabinets" actually started life as modern laminate side tables.  I had to do a double-take, because it was hard to believe how they started and where they ended up.  I love Kristine's work on the Painted Hive and her  (read more …)
