I gave this sweet little desk a face lift with several coats of pretty cream paint. Sorry I didn't take a before picture but I'm sure you've all seen the 1950's french provincial furniture in a sort of off-white color with gold trim. That was the look! My mom had a bedroom set in this style when she was little.
The drawers were lined with the pages from a vintage novel. I just love the look of these old yellowed book pages.
I had a fun day out shopping estate sales with a dear friend on Saturday and came home with lots of cream and white pottery...some old, some new, all elegant. See my little "pop" of pink here - dried carnations. Aren't they pretty?
Homer Laughlin Ironstone cups...
Kind of an after thought...I felt like this old scalloped lamp shade needed a little something extra. I added a gold suspender clip and attached this cute little chick image from the Graphics Fairy. The shade sits atop a vintage straw hat somewhat like a cloche.
Thank you for your sweet visit! It's time for me to switch hats and start planning a Star Wars birthday party for my big 5 year old boy! I don't know where the last 5 years have gone! It was also 5 years ago when I left the financial industry to stay home with my baby and start my business at the antique shop! I think it's time for a giveaway, don't you? I am working on one...stay tuned!
Best wishes and blessings,
