White Wednesday and Christmas...



http://fadedcharmcottage.blogspot.com/

A Really Quick Wednesday post. Joining Kathleen over at Faded Charm today, just because I have a Fun White I am loving...Today is her 79th White Wednesday linky party.



This breadbox was in sad condition at Goodwill on a bottom shelf hidden by another item. What caught my eye was the Black Strap hinge, which I LOVE! It reminds me of a barn door. I saw potential and cottage charm in it. It was dirty, raw wood, with a plexiglass window that was discolored, scratched and cracked. I brought it home, cleaned it up, white-washed it, and replaced the plastic with chicken wire. It now holds all the bread items that sat out on our counter in the kitchen.

The little Christmas vignette were also GW treasures. It cost me $1.00 for the two items, and I adore the little furry white llama.





These little vintage white heart ornaments were at the Thrift for .50 in a clearance basket. They were getting rid of all the Christmas inventory turned in. I decided they were too pretty to just use for Christmas. So here they shall stay.



Thanks to all dropping by. Love and Hugs to all my Bloggy sisters. So thankful for the Reason we celebrate this Season... The birth of Jesus. Merry Christmas to all of you and God bless your gatherings...

I love to shop at Goodwill. It's like a box of chocolates, "never know what you will find". My motto is if it is not different then I will not buy it. LOL
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas. Let's meet up soon for lunch (maybe in Waxhaw?).
Blessings,
Bren

Love your GW finds, Julie! I would have jumped on that bread box, also...for the same reason...the hinges! Do you also have a love for garden gates? In all of our gardens there is not a single one that is fenced in so that we would have need of a gate! Can you believe that?

And those heart ornaments are beautiful. I could easily see why they would stay out all year long.

Merry Christmas to your sweet family.

Hugs from me to you,
Dianna
