the one that took my breath away...

Well Hello!! The lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer are here and we are having a heat wave! I think it must have hit 100 yesterday. I know it was very hot in the shop yesterday afternoon while I was there. Since I have been enjoying the lazy days of summer at my campground and have not done any feathering of my nest at home, I thought that for White Wednesday I would show off a few whites that the other shop girls have in their booths right now. I have not hit any yard sales since I returned from Aruba but I did a quick hit at the antique malls in downtown Plymouth. I found this sweet little lamp... I spied this beautiful lamp in Jackie's booth... I also fell in love with this lamp that Jeannie created... Isn't that so cute! Jeannie's is so creative ~ I get lots of inspiration from her booth! You know how I love sweet vintage books ~ well I found a beautiful one in Plymouth which I'll show you soon. My little collection is getting bigger so I decided to part with a few that I put in my booth...
Uh oh...having seller's regret already!! Okay...moving on...Pam has some pretty whites for your kitchen...

Lee has this sweet little cart that I think would be so cute on a porch filled with flowers... Betsy has this lovely old hand made eyelet lampshade... Then Karen has this sweet little canister set that I really should get for my craft room...
Mary has a message board with the prettiest frame...However, leave it to Maureen and Pete to have the piece ~ the one that took my breath away... Just look at the wonderful details...

Maureen and Pete...you two make it so hard to be good!! I soooo could not sneak this one in my house! I always say to myself ~ if it is here next week it's mine! We all know it will not be there ~ sigh. Like I mentioned it is the crazy days of summer too and I am finding myself picking up a book before I pick up my laptop to blog hop and visit all my favorites. So if you have stopped by to visit ~ thank you so much! I am almost done with my latest book (yes I am a Twilight fan) and will catch up on my visits before I pick up the last book. Before I go I thought I would also show you the sign I made for my booth...I need to get some more cards made up with my blog address and put them in a cute little holder and hang it underneath ~ soon! Thank you Kathleen for hosting today!! Have fun everyone over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday, the one day in blogland that I just can't miss!!

Just beautiful Sandi, as always! Can I sit with you and learn all your blogging secrets? LOL I'm interested in learning more about White Wednesday... Can you fill me in? Oh, and yes when I was in the store last night, Maureen and Peter were just leaving and showed me that gorgeous "piece". Aren't they incredible?? And I LOVE your Cottage Muse sign in the store. It's adorable!!

Your sign looks wonderful! That piece of furniture would take anyone's breath away but you're right, sneaking it in would be a bit awkward:)

It's so strange but here in So Cal we've had nothing but drizzle and overcast sky! Not normal for this time of year at all but I'm enjoying it:) I missed White Wednesday this week:(

I can totally understand why you said, it took your breath away, I'd feel the same way if I saw it!!! I looove all the curves and lines and each and every nook & cranny! Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs

Chateau Chic Boutique said...

First I want to thank you for becoming a follower! I truly appreciate it. And secondly, I love your post. That is pretty cool of you to post photos of your fellow dealers. You're right, that cabinet is awesome! You could use that in just about any room. Listen to me, like I'm trying to sell it to you, ha-ha! Maybe it'll be YOUR White Wed item next week???

Oh, I almost forgot, I really like your sign. I'm working on one also. Yours looks so cute!

Have a great day!

Blessings,
Missy

Oh how I love that white covered butter dish! It is so my style! I have always wanted to have a retro kitchen and this would go great in it!! That piece of furniture is to die for - you are right.

Hope you have a wonderful week! From one Twilight fan to another :-)

Lot of nice things, but I see why that particular piece of furniture got your attention. I have seen many of those but not in white ever. In fact my friend has one, but I'm wondering if my friend would reconsider painting hers white after seeing this one. The white certainly wins me over this one.

Enjoy your Day*
