White Vanity for your White Wednesday....

With all this cold and rain it's a wonder that I can get anything done.
This past week, I was able to get 
this antique vanity painted.
Layers and layers of paint,
rubbed through, oyster, white, cream, and with an antique finish.
Its truly amazing what a coat of white paint
(numerous whites)
can do for a piece of furniture.
I know many people cringe at painting antiques,
but to me its a breath of fresh air.
White makes any room feel soothing, clean, fresh
and very calming.

Thanks for visiting me today, I am off to 
visit my best friends new grandson...
Such a sweet little pea in a pod...

A Very Merry Mantle....

Well I actually accomplished something today... 
My goal was to find the rest of decorations in the attic
but, that didn't happen...
So I thew on some fresh garland...
Hung the stockings...
Found some really cool vintage snowflake garland at 
Country Roads today...
And Tah Dah...

 Since some of my Xmas decor is MIA,
I bought these white doves,
and my son made some snowflakes we framed.

 I have to say these have been my favorite thing
I made my boys grainsack stockings about 4 years ago
and embroidered their names on them.
I lined them with blue ticking,
and some have jute trim, while this one has vintage crochet..

Have a very Merry Holiday...
We are 22 days away and counting..
