Cake Walk

It's time for the Cake Walk and Heather and I have prepared some yummy (and pretty) cakes for the occasion.
In keeping with this year's theme, "A Time for Service", vintage clocks were hung from the trees in the garden. So clever.
Carrie de Azevedo shows off her creation. This doll-house themed cake created quite the commotion once the Cake Walk began. Of course, everyone wanted to take this charming confection home.
My cute niece, Madeleine is the hostess of the festivities. All proceeds from the event will go toward her trip to Togo, Africa to work with the orphans there.

My sister Robin, always dresses for the occasion.
Dennis provides some old school Musak for the event. That Dennis is a real swingin' cat!
Around and around they go....who will be the next lucky winner?
This puppy would like to sample some cake.

A lucky winner!

The baby has her bib on and is ready for some cake. Maybe at next year's Cake Walk she'll be old enough to have some cake.

What a lovely way to spend a warm summer evening. Thanks again to the Ballard-Ashdown family for hosting this year's Cake Walk. Best of luck to Madeleine on her journey to Africa.

Love, Kelly

What's in Store Part 2

So while I was downloading pictures yesterday for this post Blogger informed me that I had run out of free storage and would have to purchase more through my Google Account. I can't complain really. I have been blogging for over two years now without having to pay for anything. I purchased 10000 whatevers for only $5. I'll buy anything for $5!
So anyhow, here are a few of the items you will find at Second Hand Chic this week....

Chickens on Parade

Check out the photos of our coop in Sunday's edition of The Deseret News during the Tour de Coop yesterday.

I guess some chickens are just more photogenic than others.

Downtown Coops

Patio Spruce Up

It's June already and I had yet to spruce up the patio area. In my defense, we have had a very wet and cold Spring here in Utah so it has been a challenge to get out into the yard.

I have managed to collect several functional peices for my patio over the years in my junking travels. However, they lacked any unifying element and my patio resembled a yard sale. I picked up this table at an estate sale a while ago. It's got great bones but is so very brown.

A set of six stylish vintage chairs. Cute but so very beige.

This run of the mill redwood picninc table yearns for a makeover.

A set of two wonderful metal benches were a great steal at $10 each but could use some pizzaz.

My inspiration is the color in these "Country Living" outdoor cushions I picked up last Fall at K-mart for next to nothing. I love the greens and turquoise.

The reverse side is a cute striped pattern. Miss Galore likes the stripes.

I had a can of "Ooops" paint in my stash. It is an oil based exterior finish that I thought would be best for both tables. I used Krylon spray for the benches and chairs since it works well on metal.

I put together a few succulent planters to frame the patio. Love the low maintenance plants.

Do you like the wacky color combo?

I think we are finally ready for guests!
