Aqua Love. . .

Last Saturday I attended a vintage sale with a couple of my friends.

As we walked towards the entrance it was love at first sight!!

Aqua love that is.

A rustic wooden filing cabinet that wheeled it’s way right into my heart.

Yup, it was those rusty wheels as well as the aqua color that I loved.
It was a fabulous price and I couldn’t wait to get it home and ‘style’ it.

As rustic as this ole gal might be. . .she needed a feminine touch.  A thrift find $2 doily did the trick!  I added a touch of whimsy with the masked pumpkin.

Some of the drawers got filled with pumpkin and Fall foliage.  I’m thinking I need to put the word, ‘pumpkins’  in the label slot.

I tied a $4 enamel pitcher filled with Hydrangea blooms to one of the handles.

I bought it from the vendors Two Pitts of a Pear and I love it!!  They have wonderful stuff and wait till you see what else I bought.  Just a teaser, not showing you yet.

She feels right at home with my shabby bench and $5 orange chair.

I know what you’re thinking, “she has this and that Mining Cart on her front porch?”

Somehow it worked!

How about you?  Do you have a bit of aqua love?
