White Wednesday and new pictures of the whites at the shop

Been working hard on getting inside details taken care of at the shop. Lace, pillows, mirrors, me like it.This is a little room we put together. It used to be my only vendor room. Once she left I decided to take over the entire shop.

My cream, white and yellow room. I like how it turn out.

One of my favorite cabinets in the shop. I decided to leave the original blue paint inside since is was such a pretty shade of blue. It weights a ton, it took 4 guys to bring it in.




I like this room and love the armorie. The only thing is that I seem to be the only one. I usually get a lot of response on my pieces, this one have not gotten any attention. I might move it somewhere else soon.
This is the first little room you see when you come in the shop, is one of my favorites.

Basket full of yarn and knitting needles in white and cream of course.


I believe you have seen this one before.

I love this Chinese lantern lights. I think I pay 36.00 for everything, can't beat that.
Well White Wednesday friends this is all for this week. Tomorrow I will post about the other rooms in the store. See you then. By the way don't let me forget about the queen of WW, Ms Kathleen at http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/ stop by and say hi to rest of the WW friends. Blessings, Marta.

Marta,
I so enjoyed our visit today. Ladies that clock case hanging on the armoire that "no one" likes is AMAZING with the most adorable collage of things in it.
Marta, forgot to tell you that I turned 46 in August. Maybe that is it 46 and fat go together?!
