~FRESH WHITES with PINK ROSES~


 I love finding old vintage treasures and every once in awhile I stumble upon something I believe is more than wonderful!
While visiting northern Oklahoma last weekend I found this charming little Shoeshine Box that was obviously handmade for a child.  The little foot stay/rest is small and I just love it's petite size and form!  Originally a soft white it's been lightly washed with a coat of fresh white paint before being hand painted with soft pink roses!

My next great find was this vintage Sewing Basket by Harvey.  Generally I don't repaint these sweet old finds but someone (I'm hoping it was a child) scribbled all over the top of this one with black marker.  So...it was repainted a fresh white and the top was hand painted with pink roses!
~SWEET LID~

I'm always on the hunt for neat things to repaint.  Old or new if the item is unique or has some great bones then I drag it home with me! :)

This Basket is a reproduction of a sweet vintage Basket from the 1930's.   I love the wooden handle in the back!  Great for a bath with rolled up towels or washcloths!

I'm not sure what I'll be working on next!  There are some sweet things base painted just waiting for artwork!
Today I'm linking up with Kathleen over a Faded Charm for White Wednesday!  Be sure to check out all the sweet whites when you have time!  Lots of things to make you swoon!

Hope your day is fabulous!

Love to you...

Hi Rebecca, I love your vintage sewing basket. I, also, love looking at vintage things. You never know what you will find. I just haven't had time with everything that is going on in my life. Plus Allergies are giving me fits right now. Lilacs are all ready in bloom. All of the flowers and trees are pretty, but I just think it is to soon. Have a great day. Hugs Your Missouri Friend
