Laughter, great deals, and encouraging conversations - those were the blessings of the day I spent with Petite Michelle Louise
! We are officially partners in crime on 'Picker Sister' adventures. Saturday we ventured again to the White Elephant shops
in Essex, MA. The cold rainy day didn't hold us back from digging for treasures like these:
Can you believe this scale in the perfect light blue?????
Vintage white creamer and talcum powder container (powder still inside & smelling lovely)...
Glass bottle and old post from a railing...
This old box will look great with plants in it, or dinnerware...
I've been on the hunt for a glass cloche for some time. Although this one was a bit small for my glass stand, I loved the handle:
The lovely detailed frame on this mirror will get a coat of light paint soon...
I can't believe I got all that loot for less than $50! I'll be sharing it with Vintage Inspiration Friday
Here we are feeling giddy inside the outlet store. Let me tell you I strongly
encouraged Michelle to purchase a vintage dress form. The poor lady was outside under a table in the rain, but that didn't deter us. We had a good laugh over how our husbands would not
understand a purchase like our tattered friend.
Run over to Michelle's post
to see her treasures and how amazing that dress form is. At least we know you gals would understand our madness over her.
Here is the outside of the outlet. Organization & display are not a priority, but bargains are!
We also shopped their regular store down the street, where the prices are less friendly but you can't beat the selection of old books!
I had the most fun with dear Michelle, and was once again inspired by her ability to ignite a creative vision with old relics. I can't wait to see what she does with some of her finds!
And speaking of sweet friends, I have to share this lovely crowned fairy I purchased from Abby of Abby's Paperie Garden
. Isn't it filled with romance?
|Thank you Abby!|
Lastly, I want to share a peek at a project I've worked on. I've just discovered books by the most amazing crafter from Norway! I'll share more of her later in the week. Until then, happy White Wednesday
