**ChiPPy! White! Wednesday** @ Kathleen's Faded Charm...

I'm hooked on WHITE WEDNESDAY'S @ Katheleen's Faded Charm!!!  Click on her link and join in the fun...  


I love this ViNtaGe Chippy Garden Chair!*!*!
   I have a pair ~ "may" decide to part with them mid-summer????




I just received this darling French Bottle Carrier off of ETSY...   Now a days, it is soooooo hard to tell if  metal pieces are "authentically old"...  Manufacturers are doing such an incredible job with "aging metal patinas"...  After very close inspection, my guess is "made to look old"...  It is such a darling piece ~ I'm still keeping it for now...

  2. That is a lovely chair and carrier! I agree, it is hard to tell what's really vintage and what's made to look old! I ordered a trivet that appeared old and rusty in the photo but after receiving it I do think it's new and made to look old but I still love it!

  4. Love your chairs! I totally agree sometimes it's hard to tell if something is really old or just something made to look old. I have that problem all the time.. but I think if I like it, I still get it anyway! take care, Maryann

  6. I love that bottle carrier! I would love to have an old one! I know what you mean about telling if it's old or not in a picture! You think people would be honest and tell if it's old or new!

  10. I love all your whites today. That bottle carrier has just the right amount of chippiness as does that wonderful chair. Isn't it hard to part with things sometimes.....alas, we can't keep everything.

  12. Love your blog!!
    Just out of curiousity, how much did that 1940's calendar from the previous post sell for? I just bought one of these almost identical 2 weeks ago at shop in Plymouth, WI. Mine is from the 50's though. I took it apart and had the 4 pictures matted and framed.
    Do you do any shows here in Wisconsin?
    Thanks,
    Kelly O.

  14. I'm loving that bottle carrier. Old, white, and chippy. You gotta love a comfy chair on a warm (but not H-O-T) summer afternoon, so I know those chairs will be put to good use too!
