I'm joining everyone at Faded Charm again today for White Wednesday.
I have been working on my grandma's room for quite awhile. It's finally taking shape. I thought I would spot light a few things. My first piece of furniture that I bought from Aunt Elsie's was a charming desk with a long drawer and a chunky mirror. I've refinished them in a Cottage White. I found a cool metal, white vintage looking curtain rod. Then I hung some white, with tiny rose buds, panels that tie at the top. On the desk you can see the candle st ix I painted pink and antiqued. My first milk glass purchase from Aunt Elsie's is that neat lamp. I purchased a new shade that matches my carpet and the antique chair from Aunt Elsie's. A few other things on the desk are that antique metal standing mirror, a darling white cup and saucer.
Of course, on the grandma's room desk, are little pictures of my granddaughters great grandma's and great great grandma's. I have more pictures coming so we have all the grandmas, great and great great! Whew, that's a mouth full.
In case you wondering what that wonderful thing is draped over the chair -- it's a table cloth that my grandmother crocheted.

Mothers day is coming and we are getting ready for it in the shop. We just received 80 hand crocheted dish cloths in all colors. We have paired a dish cloth or (wash cloth) up with a delicious smelling bar of hand made, allergy free, hand soap, wrapped it sweet and there you have it, a wonderful mothers day gift. OR we can take an antique saucer with a bar of hand soap. Which ever you desire, it makes a beautiful gift.
We have also received more of our gorgeous framed pictures of and old old knob on a temple. So cool! Or, the temple itself.
Come on in, your sure to find that special something for your special mom.
