Transformations and Treasures No. 5

It's been a little bit crazy here the last 48 hours!  Monday we were on our second trip to the vet to try and figure out what was ailing poor little Bella. 
She looked miserable and had stopped eating and drinking.  :(

After the second trip, we discovered she had an infection.  I'm very relieved to say that she has already perked up and is doing much better now that she's on antibiotics.

That said, I have been playing catch up with regular life since then!  I'm trying to get my wallpapering project done for the craft room.  I purchased 3 more paperbacks and have about half of the ceiling done.

I also put a couple more items in my Etsy shop:

I am such a sucker for this kind of stuff!  It's a vintage tin bread box, and I adore the cartoon vegetables that seem all too happy to be jumping into the salad bowl.  I wonder if they know what comes next??
Mwah ah ah!

I also picked up this old wire basket- great patina on it!! It looks to be the size of a locker basket, but there weren't any tags on it. 

So what have you been up to since our last party?  Any great finds for you?
An awesome makeover?  Let's see it!
And in the meantime, here were some fun link ups from last week!

Carol at The Polka Dot Closet did an AMAZING transformation on her shabby chic chandelier! 

Marcy at AntiqueChase was super creative in finding a way to showcase her antique glass float.

Courtney at French Country Cottage showed her repurposed vintage doors in a summery vignette.
