White Wednesday #167

 Today I thought I would share with you how I decorated my new bookcases that Dad made for me. I figured I had better do that now because after September 1st I want to start decorating for fall.
 
This is all on the right side of the armoir.
 
First photo above is some of my recent finds at one of the many Vintage Markets that I was able to attend this past year. I have the vintage flash card and a wooden letter P. Get it?

I loved this creamer that I found for a song (actually I can't sing) at a thrift store. The baby roses are silk from an Etsy Vendor in France. One of my no-so-thought-out purchases in the early morning before coffee.
 What I liked about them is that they light up. Tiny little LED's in the centre of each rose. I don't know what I was thinking that morning.
 The silver glitter bird was a last year's purchase at a Vintage Market, the old books I put together with some hand-stamped ribbon from my favorite brick and mortor store.
 This piece you have seen before. Probably my favorite. I leave it up all year.
 This is a paper mache book created by my good friend B. All the flowers are hand punched and glued on individually. I would not have the patience for a project like this.
 I always have to have a bird cage. The magazine holders I tried to improve on Ikea wooden ones. No matter how I tried, I was never really happy with them. I like my cardboard covered with wallpaper ones better.
 
And here is how it looks altogether.
 
I am going to link up to White Wednesday, why don't you pay Kathleen a visit.
