White Wednesday

I found this wooden piece on a thrift hunt.  It is handmade as far as I can tell.  It was originally brown and had ceramic knobs. 
Hubby was good enough to switch out the knobs for me (more thrift finds) and I painted it Heirloom White.  Add a pretty tag and it's done!
I think these are so unique and sweet used to hold necklaces and bracelets.
This cutie was a rusted old oil can.  I painted it white and added my hand painted roses, buds and greenery.  There's a little hole in the spout with enough room to add wire to make this a photo or note holder.
This is just a wee forgotten medicine bottle.  I struggled with whether or not I should embellish it because I found it lovely in it's simplicity.  I ended up adding a few bits to it but kept it simple.  Love the vintage sheet music just teared off and applied with tea stained gauze and a fall colored paper rose.
Thanks for stopping by today.

Love the creations you've shown today. Especially the oil can. Reminds me of my dad. When he farmed he had one like that. Yours is much prettier. :)

Lovely, the medicine bottle is so sweet. Just the right amount of decor. Certainly doesn't distract from it's beauty. I really need to paint me some roses. Haven't done it for years. Seeing yours, brings back such fond memories.
