To tell you about the Parade of Homes I'm decoratin'...

"Match Maker, Match Maker Make me a match...find me a find..."  Well, here is an example of two cast off pieces that I found and thought they would make a perfect little match.

The suitcase was on clearance, it was scratched, so I touched it up and no one will ever know. The wooden stand was from a rummage sale. I didn't know what I was going to use it for, but I knew it would come in handy some day. Well, some day came a knocking and I needed a pretty little side table fast. Thus the fun little marriage between two salvaged pieces.

It also double as some extra storage space so you can pack it up, pack it in...whatever "it" may be!

p.s.  I guess I was in a singing little mood tonight, huh??  I'll just keep on singing my little diddy's if you let me.
