Second Saturdayz 12/10/11…

Such a fabulous day yesterday meeting up with Rachel from French Farmhouse 425 just before 8am to have our second experience together at Second Saturdayz.  Beautiful show with beautiful smiles and friends!  We visited and browsed the show for a few hours I just about came home with nothing…but at last minute I spotted a gorgeous chippy white framed window in the booth of Whimsical Whites.  Then the wheels in my head began to turn.  Just then, I remembered another gorgeous rustic door I saw that was filled with rustic charm (wishing I could remember the name of the booth)…anyway – I began to wonder if I could layer the two? hummmm!?! Without any more thought ~ I made my two purchases and stuffed them into both mine and Rachel’s car and brought them home!  We (with the help of my amazing husband) brought them in and started to play with where they should go ~ but still something was missing…

Together (just Rachel and I) found ourselves driving to Snohomish to have breakfast at the Cabbage Patch Restaurant and to do a little more browsing around town…132I came across a beautiful canvas rose paining in Annie’s on First that again got the wheels spinning in my mind – purchasing this beautiful picture in hopes of finding the missing piece of what my layering pieces at home were missing!  Once home ~ I put it all together & this is what is now featured in the Master Suite.

Pictures just don’t do the character of these pieces justice, but here are a couple photo’s to see the amazing patina and verdigris of the charm they bring into my home.130122127

I’m thinking I am liking it a lot! It has brought the room together a little more balance than before with the chippy white and the warm colors. What do you think?

Happy Holiday Season to you all ~ To see what I am linking to this week – please check my “Cottage Links” label…xoxo, tracie

. . . I think you need a little white Christmas tree in that pot next to the door/window!

Sorry you missed the pink tree--I feel bad!

I just love diamond paned windows! You are so lucky!!

The rose canvas painting is fantastic and all three pieces stole my heart. I am sure you will play with these pieces either together or apart and find the right place for each piece. That is the beauty of decorating. You can move things around until you hit on the right look.

Very clever and it looks great with the painting to add a bit of elegance to a rustic project. Keep those wheels turning in your head. Good job.
Hugs, Jeanne

I love it. Maybe I should bring one of my 3 chippy doors in from the shed(I hoard).
