When I spotted this workbench it was weathered, beat up and covered with bits of garden inventory. I had no idea what size it was or how much it even cost. But I knew it would make a great potting station and was inspired by the many worn signs I’ve seen lately created from reclaimed wood that read Herboriste.
I was relieved to find this three-drawer dresser at one of my favorite secret shopping spots called The Warehouse. I had a little bit of paint left over from the nine drawer blue sea glass inspired dresser that I had custom mixed using several Annie Sloan Chalk Paints. I used the rest of the custom mix and altered it a bit to achieve a pale shade of mint green colored sea glass.
If you read yesterdays post, I mentioned my mom and sister helped me find two pieces of furniture to paint a few weekends ago. This 3-drawer nightstand was in fantastic condition and even on wheels. I really liked the style and the wood grain so I decided to add a light wash in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Country Grey.
A few weeks ago I took the very last piece of furniture I had on hand to my booth at The Pickers Market. My Mom and sister helped me find this buffet one Saturday afternoon. Since the color palate in my booth mainly consists of pale blues, greens, whites and greys, I decide to use Annie Sloan Chalk Paint French Linen on this piece.

Does anyone else feel like Easter snuck up on them this year? In the midst of running around to find new inventory, painting multiple pieces of furniture, restocking the booth with fresh finds and taking necessary counsel from my tax advisor, I’ve almost forgotten to prepare for one of the most important seasons of the year.
My furniture stash is completely gone and for the past two weekends I’ve been shopping for new inventory. It takes continued shopping to be able to find great pieces at affordable prices. On my first trip I didn’t find a lot of furniture but I was able to find a few smalls and lots of baskets, which have become a signature item in my booth.
I blinked and just like that March was gone. It was another busy but productive month. I can tell from all of the shots with flowers in them that I had spring fever from day one. Here’s a look back at Goodbye March, Hello April

When I feel overwhelmed with my schedule I try to take extra care of myself. I love the fresh scent of lemons and lavender because it really helps me to relax. Since I haven’t had time to relax in the hammock lately, I’ve decided to bring the sunshine inside with this Lemon and Lavender Mason Jar Simmer Pot. You need a few ingredients lemons, lavender and vanilla to make this relaxing goodness fill your home.
: I never thought the day I decided to take pictures of my spring inspired porch would be the same day it would turn cold again after a week of 80-degree weather. I also didn’t expect it to be raining for the third day in a row. Truth be told, I almost posted something other than my spring inspired porch. But there is something about the rain washing away the pollen and giving the earth a fresh drink that makes it feel like spring is here to stay no matter what the weather.
It’s sad to say but right before my very eyes in my own flowerbeds were flowers in bloom already that I had overlooked because they weren’t on my “dream garden list.” The tiny white flowers on this Bridal-Wreath Bush became the inspiration for my spring kitchen table.
