Last weekend hubby and I headed to farm country in Idaho. If you’d like to read about it visit here: http://www.jannolson.blogspot.com/2013/03/farm-country.html
The first night we stayed in Pocatello. The next morning we hit a few thrift and antique stores.
It wasn’t until I was cleaning everything up that I noticed that almost everything I bought was white.
I found this refrigerator vegetable tray at an antique store for $14. I have a hoosier cupboard that I will be using down stairs. The top is white enamel with blue trim. Won’t this be fun filled with onions in my cupboard? The word vegetables is the perfect shade of blue. I picked up the funnel because my friend, Carlene (Organized Clutter) made the cutest funnel Christmas tree . Think I might need to make one next year. I now have three funnels.
Four white speckled enamel bowls for $5. One is chipped, but that just makes me love it more!
And this hob nail lamp for $4. The shade will be a goner, but love the base!
I wasn’t sure what this little white thing was used for but it was Fire King and only $.75
One never knows when a piece of gingerbread trim might come in handy. $6 at an antique store.
My favorite country whites is this seltzer bottle. I have been wanting one so I knew that they were a little pricey. This one set me back $22. Not too bad. The words are wearing off, but of course; I love it just the same!
Now this was my best deal of the day. Hubby stopped for me to take a picture. I decided to walk down the road a little ways and this rusty white was laying on the side of the road. Not sure what it is, but have fun plans for it! Hubby said I was a ‘psychic picker’ because I had him pull off in just the right place. Ever see that episode of American Pickers?
This item is not white, but the little dress I’ll be showing is. I have plans to hang this retractable clothesline in the kids play area. Hope my vision turns out as cute as I imagine it to be!
Love the smocking!
There you have it, a whole lot of ‘Country Whites’ in one weekend.
I really didn’t plan it, just worked out that way.
One country white I was on the look out for was a primitive sheep.
Only ones I found were these.
I want a couple to sit on top of an old cupboard. I would’ve brought these home if I thought they would have stayed there. Hee-hee!
