And other white lovelies!
Hello Ladies! It's getting closer to one of my favorite blogging days of the week again, White Wednesday, over at Faded Charm! Where we all can share our love of white, cream, and all shades in between!
So today I wanted to show you my pretty vintage crocheted tablecloth, that I picked up a few years ago at a garage sale. You might hate me when I tell you a bit later how much I paid for it!!
It is in near perfect condition, with no rips or tears. While it is just a tad small for our table, I still really love it! I've even used it as a pretty Christmas tree skirt! Can you imagine all of the work involved? I think it actually may have been made as a coverlet for a double bed. It would be gorgeous that way, don't you think?
Here is a close up of some of the detail, as well as a shot of my pretty candlestick holders, also a garage sale find!
Here's another close up of all of that lovely handiwork. Can you imagine how long that must have taken? The woman that I bought it from said that her Aunt had made it many years ago. I felt a bit sad knowing that she was willing to sell something that her Aunt had obviously put so much of herself into. And I was shocked to see that she only wanted $5.00 for it! You read that right, $5.00! Sold!Aaahhh! Much better! Look at all of the details of the frame! You would never guess that it's not made of carved wood!!!
And I adore this gorgeous mountain and cottage scene. Wouldn't you love to live there? I've put this little cutie in my Etsy shop, but I thought I could enjoy it for now, at least!
So I have her displayed on my hutch on an easel!
I showed you the "before" of this mirror a few weeks ago. While I really liked the way it used to look, I bought it to put in my Etsy shop, and knew that she (geez, I guess that I call everything "she"!) would be oh so pretty with a fresh coat of cream paint! Made of very heavy resin, the frame actually looks like carved wood.
Look at those beautiful flower! And below is what she looked like before her makeover!
And here she is reflecting some pretty candlestick holders that I just painted turquoise. Ok, I am cheating a bit by showing something turquoise, I know!!!
And I guess I will close with a last bit of shameless self promotion by mentioning that the candlestick holders are available in my Etsy shop as well!
Happy White Wednesday!!
