Tuesday {Ten}

I made two ribbon organizers…
and some wild flip flops for my niece…
and stuck this free vinyl decal on my wall above my bed…and
mailed off a package for a gift exchange!
I also spray painted this plain wicker table (came with another table I bought at an auction—paid $2 for three tables!) with Summer Squash by Krylon.
I also stripped and refinished this table (the actual table I wanted and paid $2 for!)…love the design, I think it has a Danish look, but I could be wrong.  It’s not my usual style, but I love it!  Still needs one more coat of lacquer and it will be done.  It has been so stinking hot outside here it is hard to brave the 100 degree temps to paint!
I found this great quilt at the Salvation Army…it was behind the counter and I bought some other things I asked if I could set behind the counter so I could shop more.  As I set down my other box (fabrics, yarn and trims) I saw this…the tag read OLD $15!  I grabbed it fast!! 
It is in perfect shape and great colors, probably 40s and 50s fabrics.  Not a stain or tear on it!
I also found this barkcloth pillow cover…love the colors!  Can’t decide what to do with it, maybe a bag or hey, maybe I will just let it stay a pillow cover!
And lastly a lovely bouquet of coneflowers, fern and a zinnia!
