waiting for me...

Do you ever walk into a yard sale and your eye immediately goes to that piece? Then you realize that is just sitting there, all alone, nobody else sees it or wants it and it is almost like it was waiting for you? Well, I finally had that moment at a yard sale over the weekend. This vintage, dreamy white beauty was waiting for me... This beauty came with these wonderful old knobs...
As well as the glass topper... I moved a few things around and it fit in my booth perfectly. The old ladder back chair that I painted white looks nice with it, fluffed with a pretty crown pillow...
I moved the old music cabinet to the corner and topped it with the old ballot box and I think together, it makes great storage, vintage style... The shop was very, very busy yesterday but I did manage to capture a few whites. I love this cabinet in Maureen's booth... It just kept calling my name all day. I have alot of projects to do around the house and am trying to not bring anything new in. I am planning to move some "stuff" around and reuse things I have in a different room, perhaps in a different way. If I do want something I am going to try and go by the rule of one new item in, two old out. I am going to try and show some restraint. Try to save the money for the bigger projects (like my booth redo) and the holidays are just around the corner. However, if that cabinet is still there next week...



Another favorite of mine lately has been this wonderful old bird cage... I am sure that if I bring this home or the cabinet my husband just might put me in a cage! Happy White Wednesday everyone!!

Your booth is sooo pretty and I love that birdcage. I think it may be worth being locked up for.

Hi Sandi,

I love that little piece..it would be perfect in a corner of my bedroom with a pretty mirror above it...what a cute vanity it would be. ♥

I, too, have fallen for bird cages. I've found a small-ish one in a local antique mall that is the old wire that hangs on the floor stand..it is awesome but they also have a big awesome price on it. {sigh} Maybe they will mark it down one day because it's been there for over a year at this point.

Thanks so much for visiting with me for White Wednesday.

Happy Day to you,
Stephanie ♥

Yes, but it is usually at a garage sale and I want to run right over and snatch it up before anyone grabs it and I realize I am the only one who wanted it in the first place. Lovely whites.
