White Wednesday "Succulents & Ironstone"

 I decided to use some pieces of my white ironstone to start new plantings and mixed them in with some of my favorite goodwill & flea market finds...

large white urn 3.99 and the ironsrone pieces I stole for 2.99

St. Francis came from the Long Beach Flea for 10.00

I had to put little touches of Kathleen from Faded Charm she made that precious paper weight in the corner and I won it from one of her delightful give aways...

see this vintage gardening scissors they are my mother's and she passed them down to me she did all of her "clippings" with them and now I do as well...

see that PB look a like sitting towards the back I just need some white wash and then it will be finished another steal for 1.99 at one of my favorite goodwills... Love magnet by Kathleen she is ultra talented!!!!

white urn 5.99 and glass cloche 6.99 all from goodwill in Orange County where I live,

say it " jealous, jealous, oh so jealous" sorry I'm being a dork today quoting lines from movies that I watch over and over

3.99 framed white replica tile "love it:

ok and now for the real piece of the day....

I had that lovely "Anthro" gift card that I won from the most ever so charming Anne at Fiona and Twig so when I went to the wine country I finally used it...

the most soft and cozy with little hints of gray, oh and yes I dress just like I decorate
juxtaposition throwing the bold and chunky necklace with the ruffled sweater and my worn jeans too stinkin cute!!!

Stop by all the multi talent that splashes the pages for White Wednesday you are sure to be inspired endlessly,

simply me just Kate xoxox

Hi Kate,
I'd love to shop at your Goodwill, such great finds! Off to look at your Wine Country trip to Anthropologie since that's in my neck of the woods.

I'm loving white Wednesday this week! Girl I gotta get down south and find that goodwill. I've got the decorating bug. I'm moving soon so that's probably why! Hope you had a great time in Wine Country. My favorite place to check out when I go to Sonoma is Chauteau Sonoma. She's got some beautiful stuff in that store!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

First of all that ruffled sweater is to die for! Jealous? YES!
I love all your beautiful, white, displays. I've never thought about putting a cloche on top of an urn, but it looks wonderful!

Rebecca said...

Love the ironstone and it looks so good with the succulents. The scissors are great and I love pretty much anything from Anthro.
