The Little White Shelf

The Nashville Flea Market has become one of my favorite places to go.  I always come home with some pretty cool treasures. 

The last time I went,  I picked up a neat little white shelf made out of old wood.

It has made a perfect little place to hold some pretties in my master bath.







 

I planted lavender this year and have loved using it in my decorating.  My two vases are a vanilla flavoring bottle and a salt shaker minus the lid.  I love finding little bottles like this to use.

I am headed over to Faded Charm for White Wednesday and my weekly party at Marty's, Tabletop Tuesday.  Come on over with me.

By the way, the flea market is coming up this weekend.  Yep, I will be there.  (I did get rid of a whole bunch of stuff... remember)

Oh I love your shelf. It is really a treasure. What a great piece to use in the bathroom. I also really like the bottles. I would never have thought of the vanilla bottle, that is such a fantastic idea. Gorgeous vignette. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Oh- I absolutely adore that shelf. I love the hardware on it too. Nice find! I like little bottles too. I have a ton of them (well, not a TON...but a lot) stashed. Nice post- Diana

Hi Amy,
Nice to meet you. That is a really unique shelf,
and I love how you have arranged everything on your shelf as well. I love white pitchers and creamer or anything white for the most part, so it all looks so fresh and pretty.
Thanks for sharing,
blessings, Nellie

Oh, how pretty! I can see why you wanted to bring home that shelf.

I almost walked off in a pout when I saw you had been to that wonderful flea market again. Just kidding... but I DO love the stuff you find there. The shelf is exactly like something that I'd want.

Is it hard to grow lavender? Remember, I'm the black thumb poster...

Using empty flavoring bottles? Genius! Such a pretty little spot. I wish we had neato fleas around my neck of the woods. Ours are full of rhinestone sweatshirts and last year's Capt crunch cereal for .25 :)

Your white shelf is gorgeous! I really like the display on top. I had five lavender plants this year and they all died :(

Love your shelf. I love finding pieces of architecture like that. I copied my mantle from a shelf I found a couple years ago.

Hi Amy
Thank you for stopping by my bog. It's so nice to meet you :)
Love your flea market finds. I planted 5 lavender plants last year. Wow - it grows fast! Hopefully next year I can use some buds for sachets.
