It's ChiPPy WHITE WEDNESDAY ~ ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style!*!*!

As I get ready for this weekend's Grayslake Flea Market in Illinois, ~ I decided to take some time out & link up with Kathleen of "FADED CHARM" for ChiPPy WhiTe Wednesday!!!   Be sure to hop on over to her blog to SEE all the other entries as well...

 I netted this PeRfeCtLy Chippy White Metal Pot & Saucer a couple weeks ago when we shopped HUNT & GATHER in Minnesota...  Sorry ~ it's a keeper for now...
(click to enlarge...)







FaB Patina...  & Lacey cut-out edging...



 The Pot and Saucer's FORM matched perfectly - but I found it odd that the saucer showed strong signs of old "apple-green" paint, while the Pot showed AQUA-BLUE...















 As I was shopping for dinner at the Grocery Store ~ I spotted these GoRgeOuS Fresh Flowers and knew they were the perfect adornment for this chippy-white pot & saucer...

  4. Ooo! I think I'd probably have to keep the pot and saucer, too! I like that the different colors show through each one. Just adds more interest.

  5. You've got some cool "chippy" looks going on. I love aqua and blues, so naturally my eye is drawn to the old pot!

    Take care, Sue
