White Wednesday

The chippy white stuff, the "patina", it is my favorite!
The wear, the imperfection of vintage pieces is priceless.
The dirty, the stuff that has been discarded and kicked around is always the best.
Add a little color AND some rust, and I've got a real treasure.
The old crackly white that is just beginning to get "chippy" never, ever escapes my eye! And I have to have it. I know when it comes to describing my love affair with the old chippy white stuff, I'm not alone! Happy White Wednesday, and now go visit Kathleen and see some more wonderful stuff!!

Isn't it wonderful? I'm so glad my husband also likes the chippy, beat up stuff so I can have it all over the house...there is nothing like it!
Love the piece with the pretty blue coming through...
