White Wednesday

Two of my favorites. Ironstone and sunflowers. The flowers were reduced in price. I did not mind that they were a little frazzled. So am I. The ironstone is new but was made in Italy. I refinished this table in one hundred and three degree heat. I know it was too hot to paint.

A glimpse of the  dining room chairs is shown in the photos. We found them at Habitat for Humanity Restore. I like their shape and the fabric is pretty. The wood is worn on the arms. A man in the store was explaining to me how to refinish them and I told him I was not planning on doing that. He looked at me strangely.   yard sale june 26 2010 012

  1. Men just don't understand that we want it worn and chippy. My husband thinks I'm crazy. I love those ruffled sunflowers and your new old tablecloth looks great.

  2. I adore sunflowers....I tend to have them more in the fall...however they are beautiful all year round. THanks for popping over. They look awesome in your white vase!

  3. Beautiful!
    My father-in-law always wants to sand and paint all my chippy, rusty stuff. Egads...

  4. Now stop with the 103 degree painting. We don't want your brain frazzled too. Love the combo of ironstone and sunflowers...just perfect!

  5. A little frazzled...aren't we all???? Happy WW!!

  6. Sunflowers are so cheerful, love your pitcher-enjoy!

  7. Hi Olive,

    I'm a fan of Italian pottery, too, especially deruta!


  8. The Sunflowers in that White Pitcher on that Table ~ Fabulous.....


I adore your comments. They are like finding unexpected chocolates. olive
