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

Thrifty Finds--so much fun!

Good day everyone,
 Jackie and I hit various thrift stores and found some great items.  Some are great as is and some need a little TLC, but loving everything we found.  Even our dog, Hunter, was curious about what we found :)

Have a wonderful Sunday and thanks for stopping by.

Old Towne Orange Flea Market

First and foremost a huge "Thank You" to incredibly sweet, beautiful and talented Irma, from Cosas Bella. She stopped by our booth at the flea & encouraged us to take pictures of our booth. She even offered for me to send her the pictures and she would gussy them up for us---so sweet---since I really have no idea how to manipulate pictures. So without further ado--here are the lovely pictures supplied by Irma of our booth at the Old Towne Orange Flea Market.

Jackie and I consider ourselves so lucky to have come to known Irma and her hubby. 
Hop on over to Irma's wonderful blog
 http://cosasbellas4u.blogspot.com/2011/02/happy-valentines-day.html.  to see her amazing creations and stories. 
Take care everyone--and--have a wonderful weekend.

Random White Wednesday and Some Transformations

Hi Everyone,

 How I adore White Wednesday.  Everyone shares such wonderful images.  Below are just some quick shots of white, I was able to capture and some transformed items.  I have started working an 8 to 5 job, so between the job, taking care of the house/family and preparing for various flea markets, I unfortunately do not have much time for blogging.  I still check out all your wonderful blogs--I just do it more quickly than I use too :  ) 

 I know there is pink in these roses, but I love the white with them : )

The next set of pictures are some transformations I did using white spray paint, rubber stamps, and some of my handmade clay roses.   I get so excited I forget to take "before" pictures--sorry :(

A black and rusted candle holder, now white. 

A brown silverware caddy now white and embellished with pink clay roses.

Another silverware cady, painted white and stamped with some french flair.

Anyway, I hope you all have a glorious week.   I am linking up with Katherine at Faded Charm for White Wednesday  http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ and Transformation Thursday  over at the Shabby Chic Cottage http://www.theshabbychiccottage.net/ .

Oh one more thing, if any of you are in Orange, California this Saturday the 12th, Jackie and I will be selling wares at the Old Towne Orange Flea Market.  We would love to chat with you.

Blessings to you all,
