White Wednesday - Something Different

This is one of my recent 'treasure' hunting finds. It had an exact duplicate that was twice the size as well that I didn't pick up. Of course I regret it now. I already have a pink gum ball machine and have been looking for white gumballs - can't seem to find them.
I filled this little one with large pearl beads, also a 'treasure hunting' find. I think it is funny, my grandsons get a kick out of Grandma's decorating ideas.
This little shelf I have had for many years. It used to hold my CD's.
Don't forget to go to Kathleen's blog to link up with all the other great White Wednesday ideas. A great way to spend a few hours on a summer Wednesday.

Come to think of it, I have never seen a white one before. Oh man Pamela, a bigger one would of been nice to have too. Maybe one day.... you never know you just may find another.

Cute find Pamela! I have an old red one that stands on the floor on a black wrought iron stand. I had thought about getting rid of it different times, but my sweet Annika found it not too long ago and the rest of the story is I can no longer even think of parting with it! LOL

I have never seen a white gumball machine, that is just way too cool.
Now I want one...it would be so perfect on the counter at the shop.
Gotta start looking...thanks!

How cute! Love the idea of using the pearls as gumballs. Where did you ever find such big pearls? They're beauitful. Oh, and I have never seen a white gumball machine...always red...Love it and like how you repurposed your little CD holder.

Hugs and Kisses,
♥Ana

hi Pamela-

Thanks for leaving the nice comments. I just love the fact you put pearls in your gumball machine - so clever and a great way to add your own style to a classic item. White gumballs will look nice too, but the pearls add a classy touch.
My best- Diane

What a creative gumball machine! I love the look of it - so elegant! Never thought I'd say that about a candy machine! :)
