Remember this!!

While out antiquing this past summer we came upon a yard sale.

Not any yard sale but one that the Lions Club put on. So you knew the proceeds were going

to a great cause.

Remember I picked up this. I believe I paid $2.00.  My hubby couldn't figure out why I wanted THAT!!!

Well after some painting and sanding....... This is how it turned out.

Wasn't quite sure where I was going to hang it.... then I found this at another sale.

I loved the red schoolhouse. I believe this is from a collection by Johnson Bros.

I knew the two were a match and I hung them here.
I added the dried hydrangeas from my garden. It looked a little bare.

Here is in the Master Suite.  Just a peak.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comments.
                I love reading them all.

  1. How pretty that little shelf looks! So much better in white. I love the plate too.

  2. Linda your shelf is beautiful. I love the Church plate. I can't wait to see more of your bedroom. It looks very pretty.

  3. How pretty! I have one of those in my garage we planned to paint white, it's gold though. Yours turned out just gorgeous with the vignette you created!

  4. That is just a perfect piece on your wall. I love those plates by Johnson Bros. Very nice.

  5. Beautiful wall ornament and the price can't be beat! ~ Maureen

  6. Love that beautiful wall ornament. Don't you just love that Johnson's Brother plate. I have one just like it, I plan to display it after the holidays.

  7. What a great job! Love that pretty shelf painted like that. I have the same plate :) It is Johnson Bros. The friendly village collection. It's actually marked, School House. It's very sweet with the snow falling. I bid on a small collection through (amazing btw) I just love the whole Friendly Village collection.I didn't get any of the school house, though. I got the mill, the covered bridge, etc. but they are all pretty! Very beautiful display!

  8. Very pretty Linda! I like the shot looking thru your mirror. Have a great weekend!

  9. Linda, I love this piece and the dish is great. Love the shot you took of this.


  10. Hi, Linda, you Meat Loaf listening girl.....hahhaaa...
    I am 10 yrs older than you...born last day of '37...just never got into that kind of music but now, I am DYING to hear BAT OUT OF HELL...maybe I can hear it on UTube...or ask my grands...they can tell me where to go to hear it.

    I am lovin your cute shelf and fun thrifting, hu?

  11. I love the new color! And the plate looks so nice up there too.

  12. What a pretty grouping you created. The hydrangeas are so pretty!

  13. I really LOVE it! It looks so much better with the paint job you gave it. I have a piece similar to that in my basement that I've been hanging on to. It's projects like yours that encourage me to keep things that might look better with a makeover.

  14. What a pretty addition and I love Friendly Village Plates! Take care, Laura
