**WHITE WEDNESDAY** ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Style...

I know I have a lot on my plate TODAY -  with the Northwind Garden Show Load-In TOMRROW ~ but I just had to share a  recently acquired "FaB SHaBBy Find"!*!*!  Enjoy my chippy... crusty... rusty... Plant Stand ~ Then hop on over to "Faded Charm's Blog" for ALL the other White Wednesday Entries...

 The "NFS" Story...  If you want something bad enough, and are willing to "pay the price" - More times than not, an item marked NFS (not for sale) can be acquired....  Such was the case with this amazing vintage find!!!
(click to enlarge details...)



I found the perfect chippy-white clay pot to go with it...




 The PaTiNa couldn't get any better...
~*~*~ Naturally time-worn ~*~*~
















 I picked up these darling metal tole flower-tacks at Elkhorn a few weeks ago...  I thought they added just the right splash of color...  I LoVe Orange this Summer!!!




Do Stop By and Say Helloooooooooo this weekend at the Northwind Garden Show, in Burlington, Wisconsin...  Check out my sidebar for Show details...

  3. LOVE the chippy patina with the touch of rust. It just smacks of age and use...someone somewhere used this lovingly and enjoyed it in another time...and you get in on it now...rah! thanks for sharing it. I am drawn to the character and worn look of such pieces. Have fun at your show.
