Some more things for Sissie's Shabby Cottage


These three items were all very ugly in the beginning.  The little wooden boxes, (I love little wooden boxes) were irresistible.  I painted them white, added rose decals and ribbon.  The sweet little percolator coffee pot was a real find at the Habitat Store for .50!  I couldn't resist giving it the "Sissie Touch" with white paint and a pink rose.
Very shabby cottage chic!

Little boxes are the best....I always have to restrain myself from buying them, because otherwise my house would be nothing but little boxes. Of course, it would be cute....
