Hooked On Vintage Chafing Dish Lids

Vintage chafing dish lids

You'd think with all the projects going on around the Charmer that I wouldn't start another one :-}! Well,  I did, we've having friends over for dinner, and they haven't seen the Charmer before, and our bathroom, is well, not very nice looking! So there was only one thing left to do, another quick updo! […]

Patriotic Kitchen Nook

Patriotic Kitchen Nook

I think it's important to show our patriotism, especially during our current trying times. This year I really wanted to decorate to celebrate. I quickly and inexpensively pulled together my take on a patriotic kitchen nook. Since I haven't had our kitchen reveal yet I''m sharing our nook only. You know me by now,  every […]

Chippy Cottage Railing

Our kitchen updo is coming along...slow..ly. But if there is anything I learned from last year is to enjoy the journey. Today I want to share with you our Kitchen Updo...Chippy Cottage Railing.

Wine Crate Plate Holder

Wine Crate Plate Holder

As many of you know Mr. C and I have been busy with our kitchen updo.  Today was a jammed pack day of activity. The Charmer lacks storage space...but then again most homes seem to lack in this area.  The last few months I've been buying a ton of dishes and wanted to display some […]

There's a lot of projects going on at the Charmer, master bedroom remodel, deck remodel, bath updo and our kitchen updo.   I've been so busy out in our gardens that I have not been posting any progress on anything. I don't mind, I love being out in our garden...you see with being so sick last […]

Vintage Easter Card Mantel

Vintage Bunny Luggage

Are you like me?  I always seem behind, you know with the season.  I've seen Easter projects and vignettes for months across blogland....but I just finished our Easter Vintage Card Mantel last night. Am I the only one running late?  We do have good reasons this time, Mr. Charmer pulled his back the end of […]

I don’t care, if you want it, get it!

Ironstone Soup Tureen

It's 3:45 p.m, Mr. Charmer is saying "I don't care, if you want it, get it!  This is Mr. C's way of not making a decision.  He wants me to  make the decision!  Mr. C uses this tactic in case it doesn't work out...then it's not his fault. Does you husband do this too? Like […]
