Chippy, Chunky Wood Delights!

If you haven't met Kathleen, or checked out this
wonderful blog party yet, you need to know that it isn't just
for lovers of all things white!!!

You will find tons of great ideas that will inspire you
and could be changed a bit to fit your style and color scheme!
Come on!  Join the fun!


I recently scored some fabulous little wood chunks
that were salvaged from a Coast Guard cottage along
the Massachusetts shoreline.

I was in heaven when they arrived, and couldn't
wait to make something with them!

The paint is the palest of buttercreams and is
just delicious with all of it's chippy shabbiness!!

This wee piece is full of vintage charm!
It includes silk sari ribbon, a vintage pearl bauble, 100 yo
eyelet salvaged from an antique lamps shade, a MOP button, and
an awesome little escutcheon from The Petite Market on Etsy!
She is a fantastic seller and has all kinds of goodies!

You almost can't mess up when you're working
with such a wonderful little piece of history!! 

This is the second one I made.  A vintage earring, and vintage barrette
piece set it off with some sparkle and "shine"!  The trim is
from the same 100 yo lampshade fabric, and the bow
is some sweet old cotton lace.
It will get either a wire hanger or a silk sari ribbon hanger.

Thank you for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed your visit!
Have a delightful White Wednesday!!
