June 8, 2010


Welcome to another White Wednesday at Rust & Ruffles (previously known as junkdreams)....
Today I wanted to show you a little chair that I have had in the garage forever...I finally finished it up this week and had a chance to snap some pictures of it outside between rain storms.

Sitting on top of the chair is a gorgeous "crown" jar my dad gave me from his collection.
Please visit Kathleen's blog and check out all the White Wednesday participants.
Thank you Kathleen for hosting!!
Happy day!

Great chair photograph and love the addition of your father's wonderful jar! How nice to have that from his collection, has to be so special.


sissie said...

Sweet little chair with the fairytale beginnning! Love it.
The jar is so pretty and sparkles in the sunlight. I love the setting you chose for your photo.


~~Carol~~ said...

I think that chair of yours is the prettiest thing I've seen in a long time! It's magical! Such gorgeous photos of it too, sitting by those flowers. And the blue jar full of pink peonies. I LOVE IT!
Happy White Wednesday!

That chair is so cute! Love it ~ what a neat idea!


Sandi said...

I absolutely LOVE this idea Janis!!! That chair is too cute and I love the crown jar with peonies too.
I am so disappointed. Last year was the first year my beautiful light pink lacy peonies bloomed and they did wonderful. This year they had several buds and NOTHING! The buds are now gone. I wonder if it was this wonky weather we have been having. I miss them!! :(

Sue said...

I love the simplicity of the chair with such great "words"! And the flowers and the jar just add to the whole setting!

Take care, Sue
