Ooooh La La!

LOVE these French Provincial Nightstands...a must have for any classy bedroom or powder room. I started with two structurally perfect pieces, handpainted them in one of my favorite springy colors and distressed them ever so slightly. The hardware is all original and very sweet!

I am busy searching for someone else's "junk" make my (and eventually someone else's) "treasure!" I LOVE finding a piece that is screaming for me to take it home, give it a little TLC and then send it on it's way to a home where it will shine. I know it sounds corny...but, it's true. Why would you want to buy from that "other barn" that has pieces that are mass-produced, made in another country and are SO outrageously expensive. When, you could buy from an artist right here in the WONDERFUL United States of America, who has saved a piece from the dump and revived it into something fabulous!

Okay, so back to these lovely nightstands. As I was painting this springy blue, I was getting hungry for one of my favorite things...homemade blueberry muffins! So, my sweet little toddler and I whipped up this easy easy and so delicious!

Blueberry Tea Muffins

Blend together:
1/2 cup real butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs

Sift and add alternately with 3/4 cup buttermilk:
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg (optional...I love nutmeg, you might like cinnamon)

Fold in:
3/4 cup fresh, rinsed and drained blueberries
*(if using frozen, rinse and let thaw for a few minutes before adding)

Grease muffin pan. Bake at 375 for 20 - 25 minutes. We like ours a little more on the moist you might check them at 18 minutes or so. When they are done, let them cool for about 10 minutes. Dip in melted butter and roll the top in delicous and so pretty!

Love & Junk~
