H is for

Hallstand, well I call it a hallstand but it is not actually in my hall but in the front enterance way. This stand was origanally timber stained until I changed my decorating style to a more french country / shabby chic look, it was then one of the first pieces of furniture to be painted. I love it in white it makes the chrystal look so much better.

I also love the little rocking chair to the left of the photo it belonged to my mother-in-law when she was a little girl.

This cute little tea cup and saucer is one my Mum bought for me when I was born it is very special to me.

Aren't these little spring girls cute? I can't remember where I got them from I have had them for as long as I can remember.

This pretty plate I picked up in a thrift store in Woodford, a quaint little country town.

Ohh I love your hall stand!! I have to agree when things are white they seem to make what's inside them show up more. And I think white furniture just seems to catch the eye. The little rocker is too sweet, ted loks ultra happy there!! hope youre having a great weekend!!
