Some shabby love for White Wednesday!!




This is my first time hooking up with Kathleen over at Faded Charm for White Wednesday. This is our bedroom which is shabby and a bit girly. But my husband is ok with it, he has his TV, flicker, cable and sports channels!! Most of the items are from our dates antiquing, yard sailing, treasure hunting or from the curbside!! I just love our room!!! Here are a few of our vignettes.


This is part of our alter where we pray together.


This is an old window from Sims childhood house. We got it when his mother put in new ones. The black and white photos are not family members, just kindred spirits! (we have alot of them in our room!)


These are a couple of my old hats, and lily of the valley flowers in frames. The big frame was found in our neighbors trash!!




The top picture is a shelf out of old architechtual salvage, with some of our treasures we have gotten along the way. The bottom picture is the top of my dresser with more special treasures.


This is the drawers with an old vintage bed jacket from my Aunt Mary and a beaded purse. The handles are old door latches, hooks, pulls, and handles.


This is a memo board with more of my treasures on it!



This is another dresser in my room with vintage finds. The pictures are of my son Danny and daughter Brooke. That is old grates on the wall. Old frame, glass block, vintage hat on the lamp, and some more goodies.


This is an old chippy door we use as a wall by our bed. The photos we got an estate sale here in town. It is a picture of a brother and sister. The candle holder is an old lamp part.



This is our window, I use old vintage slips for curtains with pull down shades. The picture is hand painted and found at the Goodwill painted by one of Sims family members who died. He had painted it for his friend and when his friend died the family donated it! and we found it by chance as it is signed!! We knew the name from studying Sims family history! We have a couple of other items we got this way too!!!

This area is not pink! But the glare from the sun made it look that way. This is in one of the corners. The sign is the front of an old drawer, and my friend painted it for us.

Vintage slips as curtains! Now THERE's a new one! How clever!!

How are things going Fran? We just got our car back from the shop so I've been a prisoner in this home for 3 days just as they started summer vacation. Have been using my time wisely. Got tons of housework done and even art studio time. Today, I venture out!!

This is a sensational space and really fun to look at. You have some great collections in here that have a real organic and soulful quality. I loved visiting--thanks for posting. I missed it in the early round of postings I viewed, glad I checked in again--Jacqueline
