A few items for Sissie's Shabby Cottage Booth

I found an old, severely tarnished silver platter that had seen its better days, but I couldn't pass up the $2.00 price tag! So, I decided to slap on some white paint, add a sweet rose decal, and there ya go, a pretty little platter perfect for the shabby cottage bedroom vanity...... I also found some lovely green toile fabric and started making pillows.  I'll show you more of these later..............Oh, I just had an idea! I think I will go out tomorrow looking for more cheap silver trays.  Christmas is coming.

Hiya Sissie, I found you through SITS:)
I just want to say that I would have never thought to paint a silver platter! How cool is that???
I live in a cottage and love everything about it. We downsized a few years ago, and I've never regretted it. Love making our small space, cozy & romantic, without being overly feminine...for hubby's sake:)
I'm a follower now...can't wait to check out your future posts.
BTW, I've got 2 great sis' as well...we always get our pic's taken together..I've got oodles...luv those girls:)
