It's a **ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** W*H*I*T*E O*U*T...

My friend Roxann is such a "gem"...   One of the things I remember most about her is that she has always signed her notes to me -  "FRIENDS ALWAYS"...  Having moved away from this area for quite some time now, we may not keep in touch as much, but on occasion - Christmas or Birthdays - ROXANN ALWAYS makes that special effort to keep in touch - hence ** FRIENDS ALWAYS **...  The other day a beautiful greeting card and "Perfectly SHaBBy B*L*I*N*G Gift Arrived!*!*!   See for yourself...  Thank YOU Roxann!!!


 I wanted a little "SHaBBy W*H*I*T*E Vignette" on one of my favorite chippy tables... Roxann sent me the "Darling Creamer & Sugar" - which completed it...




The set has the most adorable RHINESTONE BLING in the design...


I adorned this SHaBBy-White Tree with ViNaGe Tea Cups that are stamped "Japan" on the bottom...
Items Made In Japan, date between the 1940's - 1960's...








I'm not sure if I want to add a hint of color...
I sure love my vintage clip on birdies...




This Gift adorned with "BiRdiE" - 
already flew out the door...




I married this Funky White Tree with a
 "Light Fixture Housing" for the base...  
Wonderfully ChiPPy!*!*!




Only a few more days till

ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! WHITE TWIG TREE with BiRdiE!*!*!

I've been seeing so many lovely HoLiDay W*H*I*T*E*S this year...  I'm linking up with Kathleen of Faded Charm ~ For WHITE WEDNESDAY with my SHaBBy-WhiTe Twig Tree & BiRdiE...

 I just LoVe This!*!*!
Although the Tree probably isn't that old, what appealed to me was it's crude branches & time-worn paint patina...  The newer, bristly birdie adornment was a perfect accent...   



 The base is wonderfully crude & chippy...




*~* Woodsy Winter Wonderland *~*

The first Friday Night in December, starts Sutter Creek's HoLIDaY Open House...  The town's shop were ALL A-GLOW with festive window displays ~ and this shop - Tomorrow's Heirlooms was packed!*!*! 



One of the perks of HoLiDaY ShoPPing is coming across a WINDOW DISPLAY that is sooooo GoRgEOuS ~ that you just can't help but go inside and shop!*!*!  Tomorrow's Heirlooms was just that!!!  I'm sooooo glad we were visiting when we did...  




Even their door handle was inviting...




Lots of ViNtaGe InSpired Clothing...



Their dressing rooms were as lovely as the front window...




The ladies behind the check-out counter were sooooo nice!!!

ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! ~ A SpArKliNg Blue ChRisTMaS!*!*!

YESTERDAY we woke up to a light "Dusting-Of-Snow"...  - That's ALL IT TOOK to get me in the Christmas Shopping HoLiDaY Spirit...  I wanted to "SHOP-LOCAL" this year and that I did!!!  Ninety percent of ALL my ShoPPing was acquired in our Quaint Historic Town - of Cedarburg, Wisconsin...   The more I get in the Spirit of things ~ the MORE ViNtaGe ChRisTMas Appears in our home...   

 I was missing the ~*~HoLiDay SPaRkLe~*~ of my Rare ViNtaGe Blue Christmas Trees...   It's taken YEARS of Collecting to find these "less commonly seen" 
B*L*U*E Bottle Brush Trees... 




I remember paying "top dollar" for this GoRgeOus, larger-sized, 1950's Bottle Brush Tree...  It's a Beauty!!!  




Blues work soooo well with "SHaBBy-Whites"...








 I picked up this Sprig of Blue Glass Balls - YESTERDAY, while shopping in Cedarburg...  I loVe the varied shades of blues & of course the PaTiNa!*!*!




My friend Jenny surprised me with these ViNtaGe Silver-Snowflake & Aqua-Blue Ornaments...  Such a PeRfeCt Adornment for my "Blue Christmas Vignette"...




I know I have a few more blue trees in the cupboard - somewhere, along with a large Bottle Brush Wreath...  I'm hoping to add "just one more" Blue Tree to my collection this year...
