I don't know if it's the rare glimpse of sunshine that we finally got, the long-awaited warm temps or what, but I've been bitten by the 'white bug'!
I've been lightening up the slightly darker, more rustic areas of my home with whiter pieces of furniture and lighter looking vignettes.
I just brought up this little bookcase that I've had stored in the basement...
...and put it in the living room.
There's a little sliver of wall space where I've had my barn wood shelf (here) hanging for a long time. I was ready for a change, and this bookcase fit the bill! It's small and narrow and fits perfectly.
I started with hanging a white frame with a small clock face in it...
then added a little vintage lamp and my collection of glass bottles that was on the mantel (here.)
I was so excited to win a TJ Maxx gift card (my favorite non-vintage store!) in a giveaway from Roxie at Sweet Vintage of Mine and I used part of it on this sweet little chippy guy...isn't he cute?
I've had these a very long time and I've never seen anything else like them. They look like some kind of buoy or something to do with the sea. They're just cool to me!
(Does anyone know what they are?)
My mom just got this old cherub vase at a tag sale for our shop but I promptly stole it! It's ornate and not something I would normally have, but for some reason I'm just really drawn to it.
Last week it was finally warm enough to go to my beloved flea market (insert fist pump!) and I found this little ironstone sugar bowl. I've waited through a looong winter to finally be reunited with my flea, and I was rewarded with a few good finds!
For the bottom 2 shelves I just collected some treasures from around the house.
I wanted a new look, and I think I got it!
What do you think?
Here's a sneak peek into the hallway where I've changed up some more things...but that's for another post!
I always appreciate you stopping by!
Have a wonderful day :)
