Old White Country Cupboard

Hello Friends!

Do you remember when i said i had the pleasure of seeing Katie and her sons at the CALM Antique show?
i found this beautiful white country cupboard in their booth. i just fell in love with it! i love the original white paint and how the cupboard door looks like a barn door when its open.
it's in my sewing/guest room right next to my French daybed. it's perfect for holding my sewing and decorating books.

You may recognize the caddy holding 12 mini clay pots from Miss Mustard Seed's blog. My heart skipped a beat when i saw them--i had to to have them! Marian was so sweet to send me them to me in the mail. Thank you Marian!

i'm considering hanging the star above the cupboard with the word "dream" hanging underneath it. i also thought about the word "create" since it's in the sewing room.
What do you think?

i love giving things in my home a new life, like using this little french watering can as a vase.
i also thought i'd share with you a linen ruffled bed scarf i finished sewing last week...

i was inspired by Tracey over at French Larkspur. She did a post on her little girls bedroom and i decided to try and make my own ruffled bed scarf.
i'm still new to sewing so the stitching isn't perfect but i do like the way it turned out. i'll be sharing more of the ruffle bed scarf next week.

i've been away on vacation for awhile and i came back to find out some really cool stuff...
i won a giveaway over at The Old Painted Cottage, my French daybed was featured at Freckled Laundry on Air Your Laundry Friday and Julie over at The Painted Parlor gave me the Versitle Blog award. Thanks ladies!
The next couple of days i'll be busy catching up on everybody's blogs!

Hope your all having a wonderful week : )

until next time,
