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

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,


  1. My roses are blooming too, and my white roses are my favorite. Time, I think we all wish we had just a little bit more of it!

    Take care, Sue

  2. What pretty roses:) I am waiting for Spring to see mine blooming. We have had so much snow this year I am hoping that they are going to be ok. Just became your newest follower:) Happy White Wednesday.
