~White Wednesday # 128~

Another week has flown by again.  I spent the day yesterday taking down the window display and moving everything over to my booth getting ready for the Christmas show which I will share with you later this week.

I recently got this beautiful white Mary statue that I set on a great metal rusty table.  I found the base at an estate sale a couple months ago and it was all bent, but my husband bent it back and added a wood top.  This is one of those things that I buy to resell and then put it into my own home and fall in love with it:-)  I can't keep everything though and it will probably find it's way up to my booth one of these days. 

The number hymnal cards are from Chrissy at The Apothecary Shop.  Last Summer she had posted about finding some at a sale and when I commented about how I'd love to come across some, she was so sweet and sent some to me.  I had misplaced them(in one of my many piles) and just came across them today....sorry it took me so long, Chrissy and I appreciate your thoughtfulness:-)

I like this very sumple display and think it will look great with some greens added  in as the holidays get near.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Today I'm featuring a blog that I have recently found that I think you will enjoy.  Lynn at Trash to Treasure is a very talented lady.  I picked out a few of my favorite beauties she has recently made.  You can stop by to see more and take a moment to visit her Etsy store as well.  Thanks:-)

~White Wednesday # 127~

Well Fall has certainly blown itself into the PNW, just in time for Thanksgiving.  Brown and white transferware remind me of this time of year.  You can imagine my delight when I came across all these pieces at a garage sale this Summer and at prices I could actually afford:-)

I usually start setting pinecones around also which I think make a perfect combo for these dishes.  Wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.  My family and I will be spending a relaxing day together.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

For those of you who don't know Faye over at Wild Rose Vintage, I'm going to share some wonderful photos with you.  Please take a moment to stop by and see what she's been up to lately.

I'd also like to mention a great Giveaway that my friend Shellagh at Ticking and Toile is having right now.  Hurry on over because I think it ends towmorrow!

~White Wednesday #126

I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far.   It looks like we are in for some cooler weather around here and I guess it is already the middle of November.....hard to believe.  I'm still busy working on Christmas items and spent some time this morning glistening trees.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Today I'm featuring a special lady who has such an eye for decorating.  Susie at From My Home to Yours is such an inspiration to me and so very sweet:-)  I love to see all her decorating photos and I always have to stop in and visit her Etsy store as well.  She finds some amazing stuff...some of which has come to live with me.  Here is just a sampling of her great style and you'll have to stop by her blog to see more and check out what's for sale.

~White Wednesday # 125~

There is something about old paper that calls to me, especially if it has french handwriting on it.  I've come across some lately and would like to share some things I've done with some of it.

I love it just stacked on a table or desk, but you can also add it to the bottom of a glass paperweight or a clipboard, wrap some around candles and I've even made some Christmas ornaments out of some.  The possibilities are endless.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I'm always drawn to those ladies' blogs who can make amazing things  and Lori over at Katie's Rose Cottage is no exception.  Not only does she have an eye for spotting fabulous "junk", but this lady can sew some pretty creative things.  She shares tutorials with you and has a shop you can browse through on her sidebar, so go over and see for yourself:-)

~It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas~

As we all know it can never be too early to sell Christmas items in the retail business.  When I found out I was going to be in the window space at Monticello's for November, I knew I wanted to decorate it for Christmas and already had some cool pieces that would look great........like this awesome mantel and vintage feather tree.  

I'm all set up and thought I'd share some photos with all of you who don't live close enough to see it in person.  If you do, these displays always look better in person and you might just find something you just can't live without, so stop by sometime.  I'll be there for the whole month:-)

It was getting dark when I was finally done and able to take the pics, so some are a little dark and it is a hard area to get photos of the whole area.  These ones at the end are from outside so you can have a better idea.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
