Wishing you a good Monday morning.  Yesterday afternoon after church my hubby and I headed up to Denver to escape the routine.  He has been painting at the house for days and we needed a break.  As I have shared, we have been repainting many pictures and antique pieces shabby chic using Vintage White and Portland Rose.  My house looks so much lighter.  We have been getting rid of the things we don't want anymore.  Below is a bargain oil painting we found yesterday for the kitchen so I took down the larger one and moved it to another room.  We had given this a quick coat of Vintage White paint last night and waxed and buffed it:

Also "new to me" is the Staffordshire English Teapot
 below that I thought was very sweet:

And for those HOPEFULLY soon to be garden florals, I found 2 pink vases:

I hope you will join me tomorrow for "Friends Sharing Tea"!  This is a blog party each Tuesday here at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog!

I will be sharing this post with friends at these parties:
Kathy at A Delightsome Life
Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage
Ruth at Tuesday Cuppa Tea

You have found some lovely new treasures Bernideen! The rose painting is so beautiful.
I also loved seeing some of the painting you have done in your home. Your home is gorgeous and I love all your special touches.

Hello Bernideen,
I love the rose print you found and those pink vases are lovely! The teapot is very pretty too.
I wish we had access to the shops you are able to find.
I am going to get my son to open an acc't for me on eBay when he comes home in the summertime so I can get some pieces I want. There is not much to be found around here. Thank you for sharing your lovely post with me at my cottage and have a beautiful day.
