Vintage Brass Tin Plate Redo

Do you remember these Brass/Tin Plates?

You see them at Thrift stores all the time!
I kept seeing them and remembered these from
long ago when I was growing up!  Grandmother and all her friends had them!  Aging myself, oh well, I love the patina and fruit design on these old things.  Something different and full of memories for me.
 So I had to buy it and do something!!!
Perfect little hanger on the back, so easy!
A little white paint brushed on, worked for me,
I love bringing something back with a redo, they come in
different sizes and designs.  I don't know what the true name
is, so I call them Brass/Tin plates?

I am posting this from Biloxi, Mississippi, I have been away
from Nevada (home) for several weeks, oldest Granddaughter's
High School Graduation and helping my Daughter and the grandchildren (3)!!!  Her Husband was deployed to Afghanistan.  Bless all the Service Men and Women! 

So Great for me, being with far away family that you love and miss so much!  Just wanted to share and also to get a posting up!!!  I have so many to do YET!
Take Care
Sharing at these great linky parties!

I'm a fan of my 1929 charmer blog!

Vintage Side Table Redo

Finally my owner fixed me!
Even put socks on~!
Trust me my top did not look this good before!
I feel pretty now!


I was down and out
but she mended me and fixed me
finally, after 1 year!
The idea came to her to put socks
on me, she was so anxious to see how it would look! 
                     SOMETIMES OUR PIECES DO TALK TO US!  :D   Thanks for looking!

My Mother's Painting


I proudly share this oil painting done by my Mother who did this painting for me in 2006 and finished this painting even after having a stroke.  She is going to be 89 years young this December and doing fantastic, still painting when able.  She started painting in her Senior Year's, so it is never to late to do your passion!  Thank you Mom!

Now this Mother, must get back to work, I have completed 4 pieces of furniture and must get them on my blog.  Well as soon as Time Allows!  Check back and take care!
