Always returning to romantic pink, shabby, chippy and vintage patina...

I must admit that sometimes I go astray from the romantic pink and shabby chic florals, muted tones, chipped and worn patina and vintage pieces that I have always loved.  But then something catches my eye and takes my breath away and I am instantly transformed back into that period of decor that I love the most. Just like when I saw this sweet little vintage table....I HAD TO HAVE IT!!!  Just look at those hand painted roses and wonderful chippy paint! It seems to pair up so well with my toile covered Bergere chair and the ornate frame.  

I painted the frame a powdered pink and then added paper flowers for some texture.

I met my sister, Kim at our brother's home in Cary, NC for our annual "Let's Drive Our Brother Crazy Reunion!" Two of our favorite places are the Raleigh Flea Market and SuzAnna's Antiques. SuzAnna's Antiques sits in the middle of several other vendor shops and that's where  I found her.  She was sitting on a pile of salvage, all dusty and dirty waiting for me to take her home.'

Don't tell anyone, but I secretly hope that she never sells.   

I also try to carry over the romantic look that I love to my booth space.
So, that's me.  Loving everything girlie!
I know I'm not alone, so tell me about your girlie decor passions.

I would have grabbed that little chippy table too! It looks fabulous next to your chair. And the frame is darling. I like all things girly too. Have a gorgeous weekend, Sissie.

You can never leave behind what you love the most...I truly believe that abut you, Sissie. This table is so beautiful. I have a blogger friend who lives in Raleigh...we've met up several times when we've been in Asheville. She is very good friends with Suzanna. I wanted so bad to go there when we were in Raleigh a few years ago, maybe someday!

Love love love your both Diana. Everything is gorgeous. I see so many beautiful things I would love.
I do love both of the sun hats you have in your booth. Can you take a picture of them and email it to me with the prices. I might have to have you send those to me. Have a great week end.

What a beautiful and inviting space. Love the rug! I'm sure you get many compliments about your booth. It hits a note that most of us have a little place in our heart for.

A perfect match - the sweet table and the gorgeous chair. I do like a bit of girly with my primitives. It is like the icing on a cake.

Hi Sissie! Just love your booth! Everything looks so very lovely! I have been thinking about the possibility of having my own space...we'll see. I might have too many irons in the fire right now for that!!

Happy Spring!!

Perfect spot for your little table, Sissie. I LOVE the frame with the paper flowers! It's beautiful!
Your booth is amazing! I wish I lived in the vicinity, so I could shop there.
Have a great week, dear friend.

Your faux flowers certainly add a nice layer and some texture. While cleaning out some closets, I came across some "vintage" (20+ yrs old) silk roses that were in good shape, but an unpleasant color. Being a diy-er, I thought---what to do, what to do and then it hit me. I had recently made some textured paste for stenciling on my altered bottle projects and decided to use a brush and paint some textured paste onto the silk roses. The first few in white, then a few after I tinted the paste with a bit of yellow and a mere hint of red for an antiqued look. The results were amazing, b/c they now look like flowers that were made from old plaster, which can be glued onto any frame or mirror. The textured paste can be tinted with any paint color or I could simply brush on some paint around the edge of the rose petals. Even the once drab,silk, green leaves have a totally new look to them. Many thanks for your creative and inspiring blog!
