**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** ViNtaGe WINTER-IN-THE-GARDEN...

I'VE GOT "CABIN FEVER"!!!  OR Should I say - I did till this MoRning ~  THE SUN FINALLY CAME OUT!!!   I grabbed my "snow boots" and headed out in "foot-deep" snow to snap this "fun pic" of our time-worn vintage motel chairs adorned with Snow and Icicles!*!*!

 I've had this ViNtaGe Motel Chair along with 2 others for the longest time...  Each season the patina gets better and better ~ revealing MORE layers of time-worn chippy paint patina!*!*!


The chairs surround our well-covered "Fire Pit"...
  You can catch a glimpse of a rusty... crusty... ViNtaGe Bicycle in the background!!!  The bicycle looks fab in the summer months with it's "back fender area" filled with a crate of FLoWerS!*!*! 



 I netted these sparkling pretties at the last Grayslake Flea Market...  I love adding a "special touch" to this and that with sweet adornments...  Fussies like this even look FaB just mounded in a special little trinket dish!!!

  3. I love the pictures of the motel chairs in the snow! I have to confess, I don't "understand" snow. I was born & raised here in sunny Southern CA and I know in my heart I couldn't handle the snow! Makes for a great picture though!

    Take care, Sue
