The Wonder of Whites

I wanted to share a few white things I found Sunday at the
first Springfield Flea Market of the year.  I wasn't going to make the trip
out of town for just a few vendors, but my daughter was down
in the dumps, so to cheer her, we made the drive which gave us time to talk.
I wasn't expecting to find anything, but I found three lovely white
items I just couldn't wait any longer to share.
First I found these two white metal terrarium~type containers.
 


 
They will both be for sale at my Open House, but I'm having trouble  
deciding if I should sell them empty or place something inside.
Any suggestions?
I think the tall one would look lovely with a plant inside or a tall
pillar candle.  The ring on the top allows it to be hung and would
be so beautiful hanging on a porch or deck on a summer night.
 


 
 The other container doesn't have a door that opens making it
slightly harder to fill, but would also look nice with something spilling
out of it.




It also matches fairly well another container I found at Goodwill
some time back.  Don't they make lovely companions?




The third great find at the flea market is an absolute delight to me and has
been in every picture so far.  Did you notice it?
It's the nubby white bedspread that I purchased for only $12.
I may use it as a tablecloth for display purposes or eventually cut it
up and make pillows.  I actually haven't even spread it out yet to
see if it has any stains, but I just love it.







I think it's dreamy and love it's texture, but I don't need it for a bed.  I
think it is one of my best and favorite finds so far and something 
that is definitely a "keeper".
I have lots of white things to sell at the Open House and there is nothing 
prettier than a grand mixture of white textures.  So for now ~ it will be
used as a backdrop for all the lovely whites I have.

I was thinking about you today during my commute. You picked up some truly beautiful items in Springfield. It sounds like you and your daughter and a perfect Mom/daughter day.

HAPPY SPRING! La

Hi Cindy....I agree on the nubby white bedspread. It could be used in so many ways! Great price too! I think the sky is the limit in what you could put in those terriums. I am sure you will come up with something spectacular! ~Hugs, Patti

Cindy- I love those 2 greenhouse looking items! The pictures are just so great- is that pretty green one of your wall colors? You sure are finding lots of great things for your open house!

I have been doing a little sewing to try and make me a few new things for the trip- nothing like what you do. When I was sewing the little purse I made I kept thinking of how much better it would look if Cindy was at the sewing machine doing this!

I have make a few things and it makes me feel good to have a few cute things and not spending a dime!
