White Wednesday

http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/2010/07/white-wednesday-56.htmlI don't think I have shared this lampshade I made from either Romantic Country, or Romantic Homes Magazine.  They took the actual shade fabric off of theirs, but, I chose not to..It is embellished with lots of blue and white toole wrapped around the shade and tied, satin ribbon wrapped and tied, vintage lace, also wrapped and tied, small blue roses tied on with more vintage lace, a couple of flower brooches just pinned on and a butterfly clip.  It was designed to slip photos in between the lace and toole. 
What it looks like on and off.

I will be trying to link to White Wednesday!!

I'am Such a Copy Cat

My Name is Rhonda...and I'am a Copy Cat Aholic.  I just can not stop copying other bloggers great ideas.  {Please forgive me, as, I do have some great ideas of my own sometimes!}

To give credit....I copied the birdbath from Salvage Dior's blog, and the bottles, that are everywhere from Coastal Charm.I already had plans to make the bottles..Just got hung up on soldering...just could'nt do it.  I Already had the broken iron bird thingie and pot and plenty of rocks that are weighing it in. 

So,  now you know..the rest of the story!!

More Good Stuff

http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/2010/07/white-wednesday-55.html Iam seriously gonna end up in the poor house.....but, this is what I found today...this time I went further into Mobile to an Antiques shop....I found the white antique table, wicker and wood top, (I really really want a longer one, but, not only can I not find one, but, I most likely can't afford it.), got it for 47.00 bucks...needs a repair or 2,  this cool Heaven sign for 18.00...love the colors..and Iam planning on going there one day. The bestest was this flax bag..its large, and has a blue stripe and blue cross stitched letters..B K, for 30.00..it dont sound like a good deal..but I've been wanting one...I got the large lantern and silverplate water pitcher at a different place.  They were not "deals" either. 
As long as my spousearoid don't read my blog, I should be in good shape!!  LOL
I do wish I had a junkin buddy though, my son just gripes the whole time!!!! Also linked to My Cottage Charm..for Treasures and Trinkets Thursday..Her button is over there -------->

My Finds of the day!

Well, I finally got to go the monthly estate sale in Mobile today, they have it once a month.  I haven't been able to get down there for the last couple of months, and almost didn't make this one.  My car is in the shop, It's only gonna cost about 700.00 to fix it...:(.  Man that hurts, bad.  Anyhoo,  I bribed my daughter to drive me in her non-airconditioned ratteling truck..That was a real treat, let me tell ya!  This is what I was able to pick up at the sale, we also stopped at another little shop and picked up things there.

This cabinet.. greenish aqua and white, chippy and has an old window for a door was priced at 78.00,  but, I paid 65.00 for it.  The birdcage and stand combined cost 39.00.  I have one stand that I paid 85.00 for alone, with NO cage.
