She Considers a field, and buys it,
with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard

Vintage Whites




There is something about a jar full of vintage whites that is so calming.
I had a bag of lace and a bag of baby shoes that I've been wanting something to do with,
then in my stach of stuff that I keep for a rainy day I found these two jars, so why not marry the two together.


I picked up these vintage salt bags at an estate sale this weekend

and alot of vintage white linens.

Thinking of Lucy



When I found this little box I thought how cute, then I thought of Lucy, then I thought I"m saving this cutesy for Silver Sunday.
~
I can just see Lucille Ball having this on her coffee table,
as she indulges in her daily cigarette.

This is the picture of her that came to mind.

One Mans Junk Is Another Mans Treasure

Can ya beleive it,
I remembered to take a before picture of my sideboard estate sale find.
I always jump right into a project and forget about the before picture,
but I'm getting better at it.
This piece needed a door put back on, new rails on the inside of the drawers,
knobs and of course some white paint.
~
There she is in all her glory,
just like new but better,
well loved!

Hold on To Your Seats

Hold on to your seat and get ready for one shabby chic ride....
Let the ride began...










I know, I didn't paint the bed and dresser..
I just thought I would give our customers some choices.
If it don't sell soon it will be white & sold.


Hope you enjoyed your ride of photos.

But I'm Not Shabby Chic




I hear this alot..
I like the white, but my home is just not shabby chic, it's more country...
My answer:
Your home don't have to be shabby chic to have a piece of white furniture,
point taken in photo above.
I took a hutch painted it white and distressed it, it looks very much like a shabby chic piece, then I took out the glass added chicken wire and some early American home furnishings like a coffee grinder, old kitchen scales, flour swifter.

Now thats very country or cottage....
Some times all you have to do is change up your small furnishings to change your style.

Ok ladys you may know what I'm talking about if I put it this way.
you can wear jeans with a sweatshirt and sneakers or
you can dress up the same pair of jeans
with heals a nice white shirt and a fab jacket top it off with
some bling and your ready for a night out.

The same goes for your home, just think of your furniture as your jeans.
