Is she CRAZY??

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

A friend of my sister asked her if I'd be interested in having this 1930's era corner cabinet for the farmhouse.

In need of a good cleaning and some fresh white paint but none-the-less I SAW the beauty.

Who could resist the NATURAL cracklin' white and aqua paint?

There was no other way but to paint a fresh coat of the white BUT the aqua remained untouched.

With the addition of four HALF-shelves, I was able to double the storage space. It worked out perfect for the bottle height of all my craft paints!

Lace inserts for the door fronts and shelf edges....

Some stencils and Graphics Fairy decals

How NEAT is this?

Perfect Cabinet for a perfect corner in my perfect little farmhouse!

In a GOOD way, I'd say my sister's friend IS crazy. But I sure love to be on the receiving end when  "one person's trash is another person's treasure".  I also love it when I get to use my 3 R Rules !

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today! We love having company.

Au revoir,

Winner of "Outfit of Choice" The Roarin' 20's

 Bonjour from Campagne Maison

Hello to all my Mamaw's blogging friends! I am Emma Sue Wells and I am 10 months old. I am writing a guest post for my Mamaw today.

A couple of months ago, my Mamaw made me this Roarin' 20's outfit to wear in the "Dazzling Dolls" State Beauty Pageant in Jacksonville, AR.  I wasn't at the farmhouse in TN, so she had my mom take my measurements. This had her a little worried that the outfit may not fit but my mommy only had to make a slight underarm adjustment and it was perfect!

Mamaw even made me a pair of "bloomers" to match my dress (and to cover my diaper). She thinks of everything!

This is a picture of me doing "The Charleston" while I was waiting for my turn to go upon stage.

I know my Mamaw can't wait to see me in my outfit! 

Thank you Mamaw! I won "Outfit of Choice" and  have another crown to show you when you come back to visit!

 Hugs and kisses, Emma....

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today. We love having company!

In the beginning, there was none

 Bonjour from Campagne Maison

Space for this Powder room was stolen from a bedroom. Bunk beds magically turn the remaining footage into a sleeping "nook".

This small but much needed RE-model gave me the opportunity to accessorize the room with a few of my favorite things--Paris posters,

.....Moulin Rouge Opera advertisements....

a two dollar shelf and a fifty cent wooden letter decoupaged with French music paper..

 a little rhinestone bling...

a ten dollar chandy and lots of red French poppies... collection of enameled tins sit atop another two dollar shelf

and a couple of ninety-nine cent brass door knobs painted with Rustoleum Hammered steel paint

In keeping with my 3 R rules, costs of this RE model were kept to a bare minimum by shopping at SAM's  (Sweetwater Area Ministries) a local thrift store. This helps put money back into the community by supporting local church ministries as well as keeping good things out of a landfill! 

Paint colors: Walls-Linden by Eddie Bauer Home and trim and doors-Country White by ColorPlace

Thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit today! We love having company.

Peace, Love and Haiven's 12th

Bonjour from Campagne Maison

One of the things that we did on our recent trip back to AR was to help Haiven celebrate her 12th birthday. She is my "hippie" ANYTHING WITH A PEACE SIGN  loving grandchild.


12 Candles

Making a wish!

 How did this happen....nails that match the icing colors on the birthday cake (and this was coincidental)

Haiven celebrated her party at the home of her other grandparents in Wilson, AR. They were gracious to allow us to co-spoil her the remainder of the time we were there.
 Thanks Gary and June!!
