A Vintage Cupboard Full of Possibilities...White, Silver and a touch of Pink!

I love my Monday afternoon "treasure primping" time!  This is the time when I gather my newly painted furniture and recent estate sale finds and prepare them to be added to my space at the antique shop.  It's never easy for me to part with these treasures, but it helps to have some pretty photos to remember them by after they've gone on to be enjoyed in the home of another vintage decor enthusiast!
The possibilities are endless for this sweet little vintage cupboard.  I painted it heirloom white and gave it the shabby distressed treatment.  On a kitchen counter top it could house all sorts of cooking tools and utensils.  I could also see it hung on a wall above a crafting table, filled with pretty bottles of glitter and stacks of ribbon spools!
It's time to invest in a new bottle of silver polish.  I used the rest of mine to shine up this pretty WM Rogers vintage coffee pot.  It was completely black when I brought it home.  Amazing what a little polish and some elbow grease can do!  Do you have a favorite polish you use?
I am loving the combination of white and silver!  In fact, this vignette has inspired me to change up my kitchen corner cupboard display!  I am still working on it...but will share soon!
These delicate white teacups are not old but I thought they were so pretty, and knew I could use them in a white vignette.  They are from Poland and the pattern is Versailles.
The Ballerina rose doesn't hold up in flower arrangements as well as some of the others, but she sure is photogenic!  Love those yellow centers!
I also bundled a few vintage hymnals.  These are lovely for decorating with or to use in craft projects!
There were just a few blooms left on my Bonica rose bush after my pruning the week before last!  Most of my roses appear to be taking a little break...but I see lots of green buds and look forward to more blooms in the upcoming weeks!
Thank you for stopping by to visit and play "vintage vignette" with me!  And thank you for all of the gorgeous inspiration you share!  I hope you are having a wonderful week!  Looking forward to seeing what my lovely, creative blog buddies have been up to lately!
