Some pretty images and my $1.99 find!

Ashley Whittaker

...Just wanted to show some inspiring images I collected this week.  Love the pink upholstery with the blue wallpaper in the above image...and that glossy white side table!!

...the white walls and the octagonal skirted entrance table are fabulous...I have saved this as inspiration for our entry hall in the re-building plans!

via Decor 8
...love all the seashells...and such a collected look!

via Interior Design Musings
...don't know if that is milk glass or not...but you can re-create this with vintage milk glass pieces!

...so these pictures below are nothing like the above...but just wanted to show my $1.99 find from the Salvation Army on Tuesday!

...this large lucite clam shell holder...


...which I promptly put some tulips in...


Happy Thursday!

No way! A dollar ninety-nine? I love that you filled it with dirt and some tulips. Perfect!

Now for that killer octagonal table...I almost can't stand it when I see something I've never seen before.

You introduced two new things to me today.

Love the pics, especially the pops of color! The clamshell is wonderful, great score, wish I'd found it.

On another note, I was wondering if you have ever used chalk paint on your pieces? I just found out about it. Not many vendors in the US, created by a woman in England named Annie Sloan. Here's the link, http://www.anniesloan.com/index.html

I have seen it used, but never used it myself. Love to hear your thoughts!

Have a great day!

What a great use for your find. I never would have thought to use it as a planter. Love it!
