Mexican Black Beans

Today I have a yummy and healthy side dish to share with you. My friend recently brought these beans over when our families ate burgers together and we all loved it (even my non-healthy hubby!) It sounded so easy, so last week I made it...and by the way, I'm not trying to advertise for great value foods even though it looks like it!

 It's just 2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained...

On the stove, place your beans, diced green chilies, and stewed tomatoes, then mix them together and heat all the way through...then add 1 cup of Colby Jack cheese.

 And you are ready! I told you it was easy!

Are you getting hungry yet?

Mexican Black Beans

2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 small can of diced green chilies
1 can of Mexican stewed tomatoes ( I used fire roasted, Tex Mex style tomatoes) *
1 cup Colby Monterrey Jack shredded cheese

* these were more spicy than the stewed version

Only one more follower to go til we can give that VINTAGE black scale away! Will it be you?

Winners and One Incredible Before & After!

This is one of my favorite before and afters EVER! The camera really didn't do it justice in 7am light, but it is really a great piece, solid pine dresser, but would be a super piece as a buffet (incredible storage!) or under a flat screen TV.

 Here's the "before" pictures....I thought this piece had some potential, but it really surprised me!

 Duck Egg, Dark wax, Re-purposed hardware, Re-stained top...She's all new!

How do you think she turned out? I would love to keep her, but she's on her way to the barn!
On to other fun things...Our T-shirt winners are Pork & Ponytails, Thrift Shop Junkie, Gina M, Marlene and Tammy...your shirts are on their way or will be hand delivered soon! One more thing, whether you follow as a follower or by email, you must leave me a comment to be a winner! Another great giveaway for followers only when we hit 50 so sign up and join our fun! 
Happy First Day of FALL!

Going Green...

 Hi friends~

Thought I would show you some fun, green items at the barn today.... first off a Vintage green washer from 1932. Can you even imagine washing your clothes in the sweet thing? No wonder they "wash DAY"! Speaking of wash, I better put a load in... I do love 2011 for that reason alone! But seriously, the color is wonderful, the machine still works(!), and it would darling at your house!

Next up, a sweet enamel topped table with pretty green has one drawer and is in great shape! Notice the green ladder back chairs...are you ready to pull up a seat? Now time for serving some treats on those green trays and to put some flowers in the vases...

Need a closer view?

 And one more...the green hulk...originally used for a work spot in a shop, now perhaps as a back porch buffet or potting table? I like that it has the drawer and lots of storage space....

Now, back to laundry, painting and projects....( i.e. real life). The barn is coming along nicely, more pictures to come and some giveaways too ( only to our blog followers, so hurry now and be a follower! It's a good thing in blog land!) I think I hear some sheets calling my name!

Rebecca in RED!

This is a "re-run" post from our old blog, but since Christmas is around the corner, I thought you might like to see the ways she used "vintage" around her home! (and I'm super busy at the barn!)

Rebecca in RED ( day #2)

Okay, now to my favorite part! All her red....I do love red, it is such a fun color and instantly adds punch to any room! Enjoy!
This is Rebecca's island in her kitchen...It's a vintage store display, but perfect as an island also! It's a fabulous way to display all your seasonal treasures without having to dust them and you can serve off the top for parties also! She says this gets used ALL the time!

Fun vintage Christmas in the kitchen!

I love picnic baskets, they are wonderful for storage and hiding all those magazines or things you want to keep but not show....She has the best collection I have ever seen!

Game anyone?

Love the plaid displays also! And did you notice the fabric on her ceiling...? Clever huh?

Red lockers, need i say more?

More plaid....
Fun, vintage store displays hanging from her of her favorites!

Rebecca also has a many chandelier's hanging around her house with lots of items hanging from them...I thought the salt and pepper shakers were pretty cool!

Here's the close up shot!
Hope her "red" brightened your day!
I just found out she decorates for weddings also! Truly she is a women of many talents!

The Fall barn sale is just 6 weeks away....Yeah!
