Sprinkles and Jellybeans


Aren't those delightful thoughts?


Sprinkles and jellybeans.






"Sprinkle" is the name of my new paint color...






...and "jellybean" is the shape of my desk!






I painted her cubbies,






and am pairing her with a cane-bottomed bentwood chair.

But these beauties were found as b-uglies on the street...







...so my recylced/upcycled treasures have avoided the landfill

and are totally green.

I'm coming over from Green Day. I think your furniture looks terrific; it really is an incredible colour on the desk. Beautiful.

What a great take on "Green Day" You certainly go green with all your projects and this is another great one. What company is Sprinkles from?

I love how the color of the desk combines with that light pink of the chair! They remind me of marshmallows!

I like your take on 'green' - and love the colours you've chosen. It looks great.

Andrea, thank you for visiting my blog! I already posted on the subject here http://searchingforabalance.blogspot.com/2012/06/smooth-stuff.html

but basically you put out a stick of butter till it's quite soft, then in the blender with a half cup of oil. Keep in the fridge! It tastes good!

I like your furniture!

Trzeba umieć zrobić ze starych mebli takie ładne nowe. Tobie się to świetnie udało. Pozdrawiam.
One must be able to do with the old furniture so pretty new. You are a great success. Yours.
