Still Feelin Shabby!

Hi bloggerettes!  I'm still on the subject of lovin "Shabby."  I found a very plain, wooden bed tray, painted it white and of course, shabbied it up with my handy-dandy mouse sander!
Picked up the sweet vintage linen towels, in the loveliest shade
of pink.  And, a sweet blue planter that I filled with
hydrangea from my garden.

I stopped by the shop today and just had to take a picture of this sweet, shabby chandelier. See the yummy rust on it?

I fluffed up my booth while I was there...

I would love to have this shabby sweet dresser.  That's one of the drawbacks of working with such talented women.  We always want to buy each other's treasures.

Look at all of the canvas paintings on the wall.
She found them all at an auction! (score!)

Who can resist sweet vintage baby dresses...

How about some great silver pieces, both shiny and

That about does it for today my lovely friends.
I plan to blog hop this evening to catch up
on all the good stuff that each of you are showing.
I need some inspiration and  visiting you is just where I go to get it!

Ooooooo, look at all the eye candy! I am loving catching up on what I have missed!

I am feeling so much better and hope to be back to creating this weekend.

Hi Sissie! Wow, lots of gorgeous things for us to see in this post! Your tray turned out wonderfully shabby; love the sweet pink linen towel, that gorgeous chandelier, and of course that perfect dresser (it has pink on it!), and those adorable vintage baby dresses and the silver too!! Lots to take in here :)

Have a great evening my friend :)

Warmest hugs, Brenda

I really like that tray, Sissie. The pics of the chandy and other pretties from the shop are so neat. I would love spending time there looking around.


The Polka Dot Closet said...

I have a booth at an antique mall and that is the hazards, you end up buying everyone else's stuff. That's why I call it a hobby and not a big money maker! Your booth is beautiful!!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Sissie, I love bed trays too. Tuesday I picked up my check from the antique mall I rent a space in. I then bought several items from the other dealers and spent half my check. I have to stop looking around...get my check and run!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Sissie...Thanks for stopping by! I wish I could stop by your booth! You have some great stuff! I love all of your photography of your vintage items!~Hugs, Patti

Donna said...

Hi Sissie,
Your booth is gorgeous (of course!), and I just love that cool chandelier! I would be in trouble if I worked at Miss Minnie's!! Love your new shabbied up tray, too. Now Mr. Shabby can serve you breakfast in bed! Tell him I told him so!! :)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Sissie...sweetie...I wanted everything I saw in that both! EVERYTHING! Every single time I visit you and I just ...get sent into spasms of joy at what I see. Now, you might think that is putting it a bit honestly isn't!! A shock of delight goes through my old bod...and makes me know I still have a LONG way to go before I stop careing about my little home and how it looks and coveting a certain look or an item. "Coveting" or whatever you want to call such a neat feeling...
I love color and I love white so there is constantly this battle going on in me ...
Sigh...I hate to leave..but I have to go back and enlarge a few more of your photo's.

I GOTTA get over here more OFTEN! :):)
Hugs and lotsa love,

Hi Sissie, I love what you did with the bed tray and how you displayed it with your vintage linen towel and pretty pot of hydrangeas! All your photographs are so beautiful, I enjoy everyone of them. I would love to be able to visit your booth, we don't have anything like that around here that I'm aware of. I love your visits and your kind comments make me happy. I know you'd like to get inside my head, but trust me you really don't ha ha! I had fun last night with the
Garden Delight table, it came together nicely! I hope you have a wonderful weekend, maybe I'll see your at Pink Saturday!

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Oh Sissie, I could do some damaged with my plastic card at your booth ha ha!! Love your bed tray how fun...Hope you have a GREAT weekend my Dear friend...Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Sares said...

Isn't fluffing your space the best! I love to do ours, shift things around and such. I always enjoy seeing what has sold too! I am seriously going to be checking into the mouse sanders. After spending 2 hours sanding a hutch yesterday, I need a less physically demanding option!
Have a wonderful weekend Sissie!
