About Us

My photo
Southern, California, United States
My sister and I are "Annie Louise". We live in sunny Southern California. Ever since we were kids our mom would take us to estate sale and garage sales. So I guess it is only natural that we still both love to go to garage sales, flea markets and thrift stores--- nothing more exciting than the thrill of the hunt and the find!! Our style is a cross between rustic, shabby chic and beachy. We are both new to blogging, but have decided to start our own blog. We hope you find this blog interesting and come back to visit often. Thanks for visiting, Jackie and Jeanette

Jamestown Flea Market

Thanks to everyone who braved the sweltering heat (107 degrees) and came out to the Jamestown Flea Market yesterday.  It was sooooooooooooo hot we were able to leave the flea around 2:00 instead of the normal 3:00pm.  Jackie and I had a great time chatting with you all--while trying to ignore how hot it was :)  No pictures available--still without a camera, should be getting one soon.   Maybe we will see you at the Irvine College Flea Market this coming Sunday (we will be shopping--not selling.)  Have a great week everybody.  Blessings to you all.

What a morning!

Okay, I woke up today just fine.   While fixing my bed, I swung the blankets and sheet up and knocked over a glass of water on the nightstand, cleaned up that mess.  Then while opening my curtains, my curtain rod came apart swung down and hit me on the head.  Then within minutes of that happening I knocked over a candle and stand.  This all happened within minutes of waking up.  I thought about going back to bed and swinging the covers over my head--but I was afraid I would knocksomething down :)  Oh, also my camera broke -- so no pictures for a while--I am going through snapping picture withdrawl.  Hope you all are having a good day-  I figure mine can only get better.

New Signs

We found these brand new plaques at a thrift store.

We snatched them up and came up with these designs.
For C'est La Vie, we painted the wood white, then used stencils for the rest of the design.

For the Bonjour sign, we painted the entire wood piece gray, then with the help of our Silhouette machine printed out the word "Bonjour". 
We put down the vinyl Bonjour lettering, then we painted over the Bonjour with white paint, so that the Bonjour lettering shown through in gray.

Hope you like them.

We are connecting to The Shabby Chic Cottage http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/

Have a great week. Jackie and Jeanette

Goodbye Summer

As summer winds down and fall comes into view, we want to share some relaxing pictures we took of our final outing to the beach before schools starts up again and the time to sit at the beach and unwind are short, few, and far between.

And a special shout out to John (Jackie's husband) who helps us with selling at the flea market, his help is greatly appreciated and his relaxing walk along the beach is much deserved.

Hope you all have a relaxing week.    Jackie and Jeanette

Transformation Thursday Paleness

We bought a package of these white canvas art pallets on sale at Michaels.

The one above is white, it  doesn't really show up in this picture.
We decided to paint this one gray and glue on some pale beach rocks in the form of a cross.

We love the simplicity of the canvas and the pale colors of the stones -- hope you like it too. Hop on over to The Shabby Chic Cottage to see many wonderful transformations. http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/

Have a wonderful Thursday,
 Jeanette and Jackie
