Pale Yellow and Creamy Whites

First of all, I want to apologize for not responding to the kind comments
left on my blog the last few weeks.  Rest assure, I read and appreciate every one 
of them.  I have been busy preparing for my upcoming Open House and just
recently, my sister and I made the decision to rent a space in a
newly opening home decor store in town.  We move into our booth
space the day after my Open House.  So ~ needless to say ~ I have been
scrambling to find new items and refinish furniture.  Not to mention my
 Etsy shop, which I have sorely neglected lately.
Anyways ~ today's post is showing off some sweet finds from
yard sales that will be appearing at the Open House or shop.
My first find was this sweet butter yellow vintage container.

I promptly went out to find silk flowers to make an arrangement with
and came home with these creamy peonies.

They almost look real with their floppy petals.  I paired the
peonies with a little yellow bird and my next find ~ a lovely
vintage frame.  Now I have seen this type of frame at flea markets,
but never at a yard sale and it was a very sweet deal.

Add to that, my next find ~ a lovely tray with lattice sides.

While working on arrangements, I finally found something to put
in this terrarium that I shared in an earlier post ~ just simple
ivy and a candle arrangement.

By the time I was done arranging everything on the mantel for photos,
I wanted to redecorate my living room from it's dark colors to pale
yellow and creamy white.

Better get back to painting the new furniture pieces I also found.  
All in all ~ it was a very good yard sale weekend.

Love your goodies today! I have a white container exactly like your creamy yellow one. Love it! Sounds like you have been a busy lady. Don't overdo it okay??

Thank you so much for your prayers for my nephew too.

Hi Cindy!
I'm your newest follower & must apologize for being so slow in finding your beautiful blog! I just spent 1/2 an hour poking around & as soon as I get another hot cuppa tea (sorry, you don't care for it) I'm going to check out some other posts.
You do some beautiful work & have already given me some new ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!

Good Luck with your open house! Where is the new shop located? I'm guessing someplace in Columbus, due to into in your bio. We get down there occasionally & I'd like to stop in. Maybe I could meet Sue from "Sullivan & Murphy" down there for a blogger get-together!

Congratulations, Cindy!

What's the date of your Open House? You will have to let me know where your booth will be located.

Have a great day! La

Cute birds! I don't seem to have the knack of finding treasures like that when hitting yard sales.

Oh goodness, I love this! I'm having a dickens of a time with something that I'm trying to do, and now I am thinking about picture frames.

This looks just wonderful.

And you shouldn't have to apologize for being busy!

Loved your post. I prefer whites with butter yellow in them to the stark white I often see. Reminds me of candlelight. .soft and glowing. This is what your post is to me. Just beautiful.
