thrifting in my own booth...

Once again it is White Wednesday over at Faded Charm and today I am trying to decide which pair of candle sconces I like better...


These have been hanging for years on either side of the windows in my den and it's time for a change. You know I how love vintage mirrors... I put this vintage mirror on one side of the windows but didn't have the right treasure to even off the other side. Obviously I will still be mirror hunting! Until I can find another one similar in size, I went thrifting in my own booth at the shop and came home with these lovelies...
I think I like these better...dreamy white with some chipping and rusting...perfect. So glad I didn't sell them!! I definitely need new candles! I have been giving my den a little spring makeover lately. As soon as I get to Ikea and get my curtains I'll post the whole room. The old pair of sconces will go off to the shop. With our upcoming Home & Garden Spring Gala in a few weeks I may display them with a potted plant instead of a candle. I have started gathering some garden items and yesterday I painted a few little pots ~ fit for a queen... Sweet little spring accent ~ cute nest for an egg or maybe some vintage jewels! I also upcycled an old wooden book with a fresh coat of dreamy white...

Love my new stamp sets!! Thank you so much for stopping by. If you have a few moments please take a peek at my sister-in-law Christine's new Etsy Shop! She has it stocked with some wonderful white treasures I know you will love!!

Sandi, the pots are awesome! You said you used a rubber stamp? Any particular kind of ink?

You definitely have a tough decision b/c both sets of sconces are fabulous! Keep them both!

And I love your little flower pots! So cute! I'm hoping my dollar store will get more. One day they had tons and a week later - NONE!

Bee-You-tee-Full! great job! I adore the little flower pots and I, too, choose the 2nd pair of sconces for you. (You're welcome!) I have become a follower and I invite you to drop in over at my place one day this week. until later...

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

How fun to go shopping in your own shop! A little bird nest made with some excelsior and topped with a little bird wearing a vintage brooch would be cute on the sconces too. A couple of years ago I had the pleasure of decorating the summer porch of an old historical Virginia home for Spring Garden Week and I got to go to the antique shops around and "shop" for the porch. Talk about a blast!

Delightful post.
Love the candle sconces you are trading off for.
Once in awhile I even bring something home from my own store for myself!! Problem is, I love it all! (guess that is why i have a store!) =)

Appreciate you coming by and leaving a comment.
Off to see more of your place.
