Happy White Wednesday!
We had a great weekend with our sweet boys. We went to a favorite park, ice cream, donuts, an antique mall, a pumpkin patch and a thrift store! It was tiring, but very fun! I was lucky enough to find this lovely white pitcher at the thrift store. Of course, I could not resist adding a little lace and bling!
This is the top of my hutch, all in pretty whites. I adore my gorgeous fairy! She was a gift from my sweet mama a few years back.Now I'm off to see the other beautiful White Wednesday posts!
Thank you to Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting this fun weekly blog party!

Thrift store inspiration...
I'm loving my new pillows! I found these two beautiful pillowcases at two different thrift stores recently and was so thrilled that they go together so perfectly! The colors are so pretty and warm and cozy! So perfect for fall! They inspired me to get out my red transferware collection!I think all the different shades of red and the different patterns look great mixed together. Some pieces are old and some are new. This little creamer is one of my favorite vintage pieces!
The gorgeous floral lace (below) was one of my birthday presents. Isn't it wonderful?This pretty toile covered hat box is another favorite treasure of mine. I have a lot of favorite things, don't I? Ha ha! Maybe a few too many? But how can you have to many pretty things? If only I had an extra room or two to store it all in instead of my poor overstuffed closet!
Hope you are all getting outside and enjoying this wonderful fall weather! As you can see, my boys certainly have been!Michelle xoxo

In the boudoir...Having fun with my new vintage tiara, making a little vignette on my dresser.
I have also been playing with my pretty vintage treasures. I gave this little girlie a crown of her own.
My shelves are a bit of a mess right now, but at least it's a beautiful mess!
I also had a bit of fun playing with this vintage photo of the lady in the birdcage. I gave her a sparkly crown and named her the Flea Market Queen.
Thank goodness it's almost the weekend, girls! I can't wait! It's our 17th wedding anniversary on Saturday!

More pretty vintage goodies!Here are a few more of the lovely vintage goodies my sweet mama gave me for my birthday!
Sparkling vintage rhinestone buttons (love them!) and this fabulous hat covered in pink flowers! I especially love the ones with nets. This is another one that is just too pretty to take apart for the flowers. (I need to find some not-so-pretty ones so I can have more flowers for my artwork.)
Milli loves the hat as much as I do, so I let her wear it for a while, but my new vintage tiara is all mine!
My mama also was kind enough to bring two of my ballet costumes I wore back in my dancing queen days, when I was four years old. This sweet pink one is my favorite.
Now I'm off to visit your pretty blogs! See you later girls!

Happy White Wednesday!My sweet parents arrived last week and we've been having a great visit! I'm very happy they were here to celebrate my birthday with me this year. What a fun weekend we had! My dad was kind enough to drive us to all my favorite antique mall and entertain the little guys while my mom and I shopped. Then they took us out to eat at Pasados (yummy Mexican food!) and then home for cake and presents. My sweet mama gave me the best presents! I'll only show you the white ones today since it's White Wednesday.I've been wanting a vintage tiara forever and look at this gorgeous one my mama gave me! I love it! (I wore it while I opened my other presents and ate my cake!)She also made me this pretty white pillow with the crown pin. She used a vintage runner that had gorgeous crochet lace at both ends, so both sides of this pillow are beautiful!The crown pin is so sparkly and pretty but you just can't tell in these photos, so I took one with the flash on.Now I'm off to see everyone else's White Wednesday posts. Thanks to Kathleen from Faded Charm for hosting this fun weekly blog party! I'll show you some more of my birthday presents next time.
