~chippy paint love~

yup, it was love at first sight

i wasn't even shopping, not really...

then i spotted this chippy old mirror



i walked away...

...and then i walked back

...and then i finally went inside

it was a wonderful chippy old window

several layers of paint





with the mirror pieces already fitted

how could i pass it up?

so home it came

and i gotta tell you

~i'm still in love~



and while we're at it, here are a few shots of my spring mantle in progress

old books tied with twine



an old canning jar with rusty zinc lid 

i found these number tiles in a thrift store, have no idea what they were meant for



but i do love them in this old jar



architectural what-not



wire crowns with sparklies



two sweet little birdies chatting about my chippy mirror



a little bit of easter - vintage easter shadow box with fuzzy bunny



and a vintage mirror behind



isn't this little guy sweet, even if his eye has rubbed off!
little bunny egg cup in robin's egg blue, made in Japan




i have a little more up there than i usually do, but it's interesting right!

of course it would all look so much nicer on a white mantle

right hon??

mr keeper always gets a little worried when he sees me starting to move things around...

you'd think he'd be used to it after all these years

a little fluffing keeps a gal happy after all!

~I'm linking up with Kathleen at White Wednesday~

she's got some great chippy paint going on this week too!

Hi Tracey, love your whites, specially that mirror! Thank you for the sweet comments on my blog. I found my "white crowned bird" at Michaels for $1.50 half price.
Have a wonderful day!
