New Favorite Color and Tag Sale Fun

Happy Saturday Dear Readers! The hubs and I just finished a 5 mile race, so the weekend is off to a great start!

If you are in Minneapolis, there is a fabulous event happening tomorrow at Style Minneapolis from 9-3p. Style is having a TAG SALE...goods from different vendors at amazing prices...and many shop items are significantly reduced too! I am telling you, if you haven't been to this shop, you are missing OUT! Fabulous goods for the home and amazing jewelry. Shayne, the owner, just started blogging and would love to have you follow along! Her blog, Classic Luxe is eye candy and wisdom rolled into one! And if you can't make it to the shop this weekend, check out her Facebook page here to get an idea of what you are missing! The address is also on her FB page.

I will have a few items at the sale...crossing my fingers that they sell so I can thrift my little heart out this week and get some new inventory!

Onto my new favorite color...Leafy Green by Rustoleum! I've seen a few furniture re-do's in this color, so I wanted to try it for myself. And I love it.....

No before photo of this little table, but it's solid oak and had a nasty stain on the top. I decided to use my bamboo shaped painter's tape to spruce this up a bit. I painted the top white before putting the tape on. Then I sprayed Leafy Green over the entire thing. I'm loving the results!

Go get a can of Leafy Green and try it out! It's happiness in a can! And no, Rustoleum isn't paying me for this....but maybe they should ;)

Allison the detail is perfect and now of course I'll be getting a can of leafy green. So wish I could be in MN for the Style sale, oh how I miss the Midwest so much. Good luck with your sales, fingers crossed!

p.s. - I wanted to yard sale this weekend but the hubs said No as I have so much to work on in the basement as it is! True enough! Guess what I am doing today???
