Chippy Day Dream display...

Everyonce in awhile I will buy something for the shop just because I can visualize how great it will look in a display ~ the " I don't care if they ever sell" type of thing.
Such is the case with these butterflies...... Huge ,Chippy, Rusty, butterflies!
Sometimes I luck out and can see the whole display in my head as soon as I come across something and I knew the minute I saw these what I wanted to do. I had to act fast though!
I had six in a stack on the porch and by the time I got to the display, I only had two left!
They (forgive me) really FLEW outta here!That is an old mattress spring hanging on the wall from and antique metal baby crib....
The old chippy porch swing was a flea market find for 15.00 that really came in handy! I filled it up with old feedsack and linen pillows but they sold before I got a picture and I had to remake some more. Keep scrolling to see what I put on the old screen door...........


These letters are up there with old clothespins........

Ta-da! This is an old metal and canvas fruit pickin bucket. You would sling it over your body , climb a ladder, pick some apples and release the bottom to let all the fruit out. Funny how dried hydrangeas make everything look so good.



See what I mean??? Add some hygrangeas and BANG! Great display! This little greenhouse is also a new piece at the shop. Perfect table top size.
Well, I've got lots of projects to get to today! Two pieces of furniture are calling my name for two separate clients. Both are getting the antique treatment. Hopefully I can get some work in betweeen raindrops today! Have a great day!

I love all the white "chippiness" in your photos. My favorites are always the old, chippy white stuff with a little rust thrown in!

Take care, Sue

I really love this display in all it's chippiness. Where did you get the cushions on the porch swing. I've been looking for something like them for a while now.

Enjoy your weekend.
