At our house we have a clutter everywhere because of projects going at many levels at home.  It might even snow today - or rain or snow?  This would be wonderful as watering restrictions officially kicked in yesterday because of the drought.

This what-not-shelf to the left in the collage below is the second one my husband just finished doing shabby chic Vintage White.  Now there are 2 - one on each side. The stained glass is missing from the window because it is in the assembly lineup.

My curiosity got the best of me
to see how some tea wares and
china would love with the coming
lighter look.

I had to take select photos this morning because I meant what I just said - their are pictures off the walls, mirrors off the walls and pieces of furniture at various stages sitting around.  As many of you know - Shabby Chic has finally arrived at my house.  It is a WORK IN PROGRESS. 

 I did get Mr.  Bunny out of the basement
 and put him on the buffet.

The transformations are lovely. I love what we see of your dining-room. Those corner shelves are so beautiful. The table is really nice. I live in a house in constant renovation... and I've given up taking beautiful pictures!

Big hugs.

Hi Bernideen, Oh my goodness, now I want a French maid in my kitchen! Love her playfulness. You've set a beautiful spring table and I especially love the blackboard sign. I'd love to pop back and find out what your Thursday is all about. Hugs to you. :)

Your pink tablescape is beautiful, and I'm enjoying seeing all your lovely pieces as they're transformed from mahogany to Shabby Chic vintage white. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your bunny rabbit holding the teapot and slate, and was all set to tell you I'd buy one if they came from your store. But as I read on I saw where you retrieved him from the basement, so you've had him awhile. Was he something you sold at one time in your store? Too cute! Have a great week!

You were able to set a delightful tea table in spite of your 'mess.' You always have such a pretty centerpiece of flowers too. Thanks for hosting.

Dear Bernideen,
I wish you a good progress with your Shabby Chic project. The buffet is wonderful. All looks very cozy and inviting on your pictures. Thank you for sharing the Tea time and for hosting this sweet event.
Best greetings, Johanna

Such a beautiful tea table. I am really liking the new "white" Shabby Chic look! It is so inviting, refreshing, and cheerful!

I've been blogging about flowers and quilting this week, so won't be joining into this meme unless I can come up with an idea. Ideas seem to come in spurts for me! LOL!

I always enjoy searching for china pieces that we have in common. We have similar tastes. Today I found a china plate (three cabbage roses with bold gold edging) that we both have. Great fun!

Enjoy a sunny and warm day! Spring will be here soon!

Antiques And Teacups said...

Gorgeous spring setting Bernideen! I love lilies so much, but can't have them in the house or I can't breath. Rats!!! Love your bunny sign holder. Your photos are wonderful, as usual!

Angela McRae said...

It is so much fun to see all your pretty spring teawares, especially these rosey dishes! Love-love-love!

Barbara said...

Beautiful and delicate. I have to smile with 'welcome to Spring' with a blizzard outside!!

Hello! What a charming table, and I'm sure everyone who visits wishes for a Butler Bunny of their very own. I found you at Share a Cup Thursday and am so glad I did!
