Swedish White Transformation Decorating









Everyone's castaways find new life in someone else's hands.

I came home with a few things to spin a little white swedish or norwegian whites on.

The metal plates were 1.50 each the cast iron bookend was 1.00 and the bendwood chair was 2.50! Cheap enough to make the fairies dance in the moonlight. I used a slightly metalic white champagne over the tins and iron to add to the magic when we're outdoors in candlelight. A little extra shimmer!

I'm using the bookend as a paperweight. It's holding down the seeds I need to plant. The tins look great standing up in front of plain vases. The chair is unfinished yet, but do check back to see what we've accomplished while our white westie keeps check on everything here and I am painting.

Stop on over at Faded Charm Cottage, White Wednesday party, for more lovely white creations.

We did have a dark, dungeon moment the other day when my son accidently spilled soda on the computer keyboard and we thought fried the electrical. It did short it out and shut it down. We quickly unplugged it and sat looking rather horrified. After googling how to save it we let it dry for 1 1/2 days and then tried to restart it...to our delight it started up again.......horray!
