White, Shabby, Country....

I hope your week is going well. I have had a fulfilling week of organizing....cleaning and putting things away. I have filed more Farm Journals, Ag Alert! magazines, Grass Farmer....what happened to my country magazines. I think he's hiding them from me. Mr. Farmer told me it would make him happy if I would read some factual farm information! Haha...we live on a dad-gum farm...how much more factual can you get?

Anyhow back to fun! I love Shabby Chic...and country...and Prim....but I love the clean look of white.

One can never have too many chippy paint shutters!





I made these chair covers to cover my paint splattered real life farmhouse chairs...that I stand on to paint rooms with! Big smile. I don't trust ladders...and yes there is a story behind that....








Below is just a sampling of hand painted china from Mr. Farmer's grandmother...the woman could really paint beautiful roses! We are very fortunate....for our wedding gift she handpainted us 8 piece place settings of china...what a treasure.









Thank you so much for visiting today!

Hi Debbie! Everything looks beautiful, but I really LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your mirror and shutters the most! I'd love to try to make some chair covers sometime too, especially for the holidays.. maybe even Valentine's Day?.. Hmm.. Have you ever done a tutorial on them yet?.. Or (hint, hint).. MIGHT you someday?? (0; ~tina

O Debbie Darlin', you just tell that Mr Farmer "it's also factual that you live in the country." Thus your country magazines balance out all the farm magazines. Ha, ha, hee.

Your chair covers are beautiful.
Farmer's Grand was one talented painter! What a precious wedding gift to give y'all. Something to treasure for all your years.

Hi, Debbie,
Wow!! That handpainted china is so gorgeous. Handpainted china is one of my biggest weaknesses (along with quite a few others). You are so fortunate to be gifted with an entire set. Love your chippy white shutters, too. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit at Bunny Cottage. Happy White Wednesday to you! Vicki
