But before I show you some of my new goodies, I want to show you an old one......the very first antique I ever purchased. My mother & I had gone shopping & stopped at a little antique & gift shop a few towns away, & I fell in love with this lovely little marble topped antique washstand. It is pine, has little towel holder racks on each end, & the prettiest little legs on it. But what really sealed the deal for me was the beautiful tiles on the backsplash. Yummy shades of yellow, aqua, & lavender. DH recently surprised me with the antique clock & cheesekeeper & I think they look so pretty there. The clock doesn't work, but it has gorgeous yellow roses & goes great with the colors in the backsplash. My sweet friend Vicki of All Bliss Be Thine asked for a closer pic of this washstand when she spied a corner of it in another post of mine, so here it is Vicki. Vicki has some exciting news, as she is starting another new tea blog, so take a peek here when you get a chance! She is one busy lady, as she is also starting a new bridal blog & you KNOW I love all things bridal, so please check it out here!
Handled cake plates are becoming a new favorite of mine, too!
My girlfriend Amy of Bunny Rose Cottage has given me her Spring Fever, so I bought this adorable little glitter feathered butterfly & perched it atop some of Amy's pretty handmade paper roses in a favorite teacup! Check out her Etsy store here if you ever need any of her gorgeous handmade roses!!
I also added a little bunny in a crystal goblet filled with Spanish moss, then sprinkled some teensy speckled eggs beside the bunny. I also added one of my favorite garden topiary birdhouses to finish off my new Spring vignette atop my church table.
Got these new beaded valances to coordinate with the new sofa & chair. They are raw silk in the palest of celery green.....AND they were on sale at Bed Bath & Beyond!
I'm still dreaming of the day when I can save enough pennies to buy hardwood flooring & a beautiful new area rug for this room!
