~White Wednesday # 130~

Welcome to another White Wednesday.  I have to say there was a ton of inspiration last week with everyone getting ready for Christmas.  A lot of you are further ahead on your decorating than I am, but I spent all day yesterday cleaning up my dining room, which was where I've been crafting for the last two months.  Still have a little ways to go in there, but wanted to share a little corner with you today.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I recently found two winter items I'd been looking for.  First is this set of white ice skates.  I had been seeing them around, but not liking the price tag so much.  I found these ones at the flea market for only $10, so I snagged them up:-)

Another recent find was these vintage feather angel wings for my mannequin.  I had been looking for a while and decided to just buy some new ones and then of coarse I stumble upon these when I just happened to see a "garage sale" sign a few weeks ago and decided to stop.  $20 later I had a huge smile on my face.  They are pretty big and a nice shape.

I've got a great blog to share with you today if you are still in need of inspiration.  Beth @ Olde Tyme Marketplace has the best white chippys ever and will gladly sell you some out of her Etsy store.

Ever since I stumbled upon her blog, I love to see her photos of the way she decorates her booth.  Such style.....I love, love, love the doors in the background she uses as a backdrop for her display:-)

  2. Loving the skates, it is so funny how they are a dime a dozen back home in thrift shops but here they are so expensive you can't touch them.
    Super cute wings too!
    Hint, for all the ladies looking for some, party usa has them for cheap in the costume section ;)
    Good luck with the rest of your decorating Kathleen, It looks great to me already
