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.

Tell Me About Yourself

Claudine From CondensedLoveHome nominated me for the "Tell Me About Yourself" Award. Since I have been so terribly uninspired lately about posting on my blog, I thought this might be the ticket to get me up and posting again. Thank you Claudine for thinking about me. Don't forget to visit her and let her know that Lady Pamela sent you.
In order to accept this award I need to say 7 things about myself and nominate 7 bloggers out there to do the same!
I hope you will find these 7 things interesting. 
Here we go:

1. I love all kinds of crafts and have probably tried most of them at one time or another. Right now my favorites are scrapbooking and vintage collage making.

2. My favorite colour is WHITE. Is there any other? lol

3. I don't read books very often, but I am a magazine fanatic. Some of my favorites are Romantic Homes, Somerset Life,  and Jeanne d' Arc Living. I will usually pick up any special issue about vintage or flea market decor.

4. I don't much care for tea, however I love collecting anything with a tea theme. Teacups, teapots, linens, silver etc.

5. I am a recent Pinterest addict.

6. Thrift store shopping is probably my most fun thing to do. I have also had the blessing of attending several vintage markets this summer. Love them, too!

7. My favorite music is relaxing classical.

Whew! That was tough. I don't much like talking about myself. Maybe I will find some boggers out there that have similar likes. I know you are out there.

Now for the second part of the post. Nominating 7 bloggers to "Tell Us About Yourself". I hope you will have fun with this and let us all get to know each other a little better.
