White heart chairs, rose chair...the real McCoy...

A day of chairs for me....found these two lovelies through Craigslist for a steal!!!...$14.00 pr. The seller was a very nice lady with the same taste as mine...one of the chairs does need TLC but nothing that can't be fixed.

A small milk can that sits in my porch.
Yeaaaa...I finally found more seashells to finish the lampshade...I just hope these babies aren't too big...will keep you posted.
Remember that all time favorite thrift store in Cocoa Beach I talked about yesterday?...well I did go back  and found MY chair. I have been on the hunt for years for another chair similar to my dining room chairs. I couldn't believe it when I saw it.  I grabbed it when I saw the low price. $15.00
Some of you know that I love, love, love charm bracelets, especially with big and chunky charms. This was at the same thrift store...a bit more pricier...$40.00 but I didn't care. I was a gonner when I saw the moveable piano, typewriter, spinning wheel and bell charms. Ohhh so worth it to me. I just wish it had a better and bigger clasp. It is Sterling Silver and marked Beau.

I've always admired McCoy...so when I came across this beauty I snatched it up in a heart beat...looks great with my other McCoy planter. Need one more to have a collection.


I finally found a vintage frame for my sons artwork...Doesn't it just make you smile looking at it?

I am linking up to Faded Charm for White Wednesday...lots of eye candy blogs to see.
Suzanne from ColoradoLady has invited me to link up to Vintage Thursday..which starts tonight...so come with me to check out even more vintage eye candy. It's Show and Tell Friday over at My Romatic Home...come see all the beautiful blogs.

Have a great day...
Sylvia

Hello Sylvia, Thanks for stopping by to say hello. I just became a follower of your blog. I love those white chairs, they are great and the price was perfect too. Are you going to paint your new chair or keep it natural. Very nice. One can never have to many bracelets:)

Your wicker chairs are delightful. The sterling bracelet is pretty and considering the cost of new similar ones are not a terrible price. ~olive

And I too would have wanted that adorable charm bracelet....that is so cute!!

My mother had a wicker chair like that in her powder room, yours are so lovely. I love the milk jug and I'm crazy about those charms, especially the typewriter. So much fun!

Happy VTT!
