Raggedy Ann and Andy

Hiya sweeties!!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!! I have been busy trying to organize the house and working on some projects!! I wanted to stop in and say hello and share just a couple items with you!!!

First these cute little Bluebird canisters I picked up at our local Salvation Army

I also picked up several Raggedy Ann and Andy Pieces at the Salvation Army. I could not pass these up even though they do not match my decor, they were priced at a steal of a deal!! So I figured I would give them a makeover and possibly incorporate them into my daughters room. I have completed 1 transformation!

Here is the BEFOREHere is the AFTER

The little holes at the bottom are meant for pegs but they were missing so I thought I would see if I could find some pegs to fit, otherwise I will just fill them later with some epoxy or filler and paint over it!! When I was done painting this one my daughter said, mom can I put that in my room!!! Of course that made my day!!!!

Then I thought I would share just a couple pictures of our big Christams tree from this year!!

Ok that is it for now, hope you enjoy my post!!! Many BIG hugs!!


  1. Happy New Year Tammy! I've always loved Raggedy Ann & Andy! Your makeover of them is outstanding and it just goes to show that they look good in any colour ... even shabbied chic! Your Christmas tree was a sight to behold ~ beautiful!

  2. Fun finds! Love the tree. Hope you got it down, just got mine down this week. OOPs. You know how it is sometimes. I live close to Arcola, Il- the home of raggedy ann. They moved the museum last year, but they still have a raggedy ann festival every summer.
    Hugs- Tete
