Wonderful White Treasure Finds

I wanted to share a couple of my newest "treasure finds" with you today for "2nd Time Around Tuesday" and "White Wednesday"!

Cherub Compote and Lace Table Runner
*
Ooooh...aren't these pretty?

Last week honey took me to my favorite Antique Flea Market and look what I found...a creamy, dreamy white cherub compote vase and a lovely white lace table runner!
*

I just love cherubs and I love this pretty piece with all the embossed grapes on the bowl! It stands about 15 in. tall so it's nice sized. I think it will be a beautiful addition to a tablescape...maybe as a table centerpiece! I can see it now...sitting pretty on this gorgeous white lace table runner...I do have a plan! Hehe!

The cherub compote is manufactured by Lefton and the pattern is called "Renaissance"! I paid $9.00 for it...not sure if that was a good price or not but I had to have it!!!

I mean...who could resist such an angelic face? Evidently...not moi! Hehe!

At the end of the summer, I did an "all white" tablescape called "A Summer's Ode"! If you would like to see it...just click HERE. Hmm...I guess it also qualifies for "White Wednesday"!

I can just see this sweet little cherub used with my white dishes...ohhh yea!!!

In the meantime...my newest little treasure find has found a loving home among all my other creamy, dreamy whites!!!

They are wonderful~ I love your new cherub and your hutch, wow! I just love how you have displayed all your creamy whites inside that gorgeous hutch!!! Fabulous my dear, Hugs, Cindy

Theresa said...

The Cherub us too sweet! Love the hutch and all the beauties in it! Have a blessed day!

mbkatc230 said...

What great finds Chari! The cherub will be a great feature in one of your beautiful tablescapes. And the lace runner is gorgeous. I missed your Ode to Summer table - love it. I really love those little teapot napkins rings, so cute. Have a great week. Kathy

What beautiful whiteness, Chari! I love that sweet vignette with the cherub and your fruit. It's so lovely. Your hutch looks wonderful too. Oh, you're good!
Be a sweetie,

Your precious little cherub is stunning. I would have had to have it too. I can't wait to see your tablescape with it. All of your white dishes and accessories are so pretty. Hugs, Marty

Hi Chari,
Love the cherub and all your whites!

Thanks so much for linking to 2nd Time Around!

Love the cherub. I've been loving white dishes lately. Your table was fabulous. Have a great day.

REbekah said...

Very pretty!! Love all the white inside you hutch!

Blondie's Journal said...

Oh, the pretty whites in your china cabinet!! And I have to mention I love the silky draperies on the window next to the hutch. The color is a lot like my living room drapes, but I wanted something silky in that color and couldn't find it. Lovely!

Your cherub is darling. Never worry about the price if you love it. If I am in a fleatique and get something for $9.00 and then find myself in a nice gift shop and similar items are $29.00, well, it goes with the territory and I find my things everywhere!!

Have a wonderful week Chari!

Your little cherub is too cute! He's perfect with all your other pieces. I've enjoyed looking at your other pieces, the whites are always so crisp and clean.

Hello Chari, I think you paid a fair price and it is a treasure. I can see you love white so it is more special to add to your white collection.

Heidi said...

That is so pretty, are you kidding- I think $9 is a steal! Lucky you!
All your white dishes in the hutch look so beautiful - love that look.
The contrast with the dark wood is really nice.
Don't you just love bringing something that's new-to-you home and finding all the ways you'll use it. Fun!
Have a great week, come by for a visit!

Sharing with Sherri said...

Hi Chari,
If you find something that speaks to you, nine dollars is a small price to pay for it:)

Your darling cherub looks wonderful along with all your other gorgeous white dishes in the china cabinet!

Your mosiac is just BEAUTIFUL too!!

Have a wonderful day!
Sherri:)

Chari--- It's always nice to have you stop by for a visit - thanks. Glad you enjoyed my German Lustre. It is still really easy to find cheap. I bet you will own a piece real soon!!! My pumpkins are arranged in an old wooden French baguette board that I have had for years. I remember spending too much for it because I loved it with it's charred spots and obvious use. It is great to use as a centerpiece on our long, narrow table. I gussie-it-up for Christmas with branches, Christmas balls and votives. Did you get snow today? We did a little, but mostly rain. I understand that there was a little snow up there Monday night. Our son was walking across the street from his house to school to teach Monday a.m. and slipped on ice. He really messed up his elbow - dislocated one joint and shattered the other. He will find out Monday when surgery to replace the shattered joint will be. We're going up Sat.; but in the meantime, the other teachers are doing a good job of taking care of this single guy!!! Have a great weekend. Sally

Brenda said...

You do indeed have dreamy whites! And lots of other things!

Phyllis AROUND THE HOUSE said...

I love the cherub, wow you could use that for some wonderful floral arrangements or some beautiful fruit for the centerpiece, I think you got a great buy....Love all your beautiful dishes, I'll be back....thanks for sharing

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Good Morning Chari,
Thank-you so much for your lovely note! You made my day! I love looking at this beautiful post again, it's just heavenly! We are having very similar weather, cold and dreary. We had one nice day this week and now its gone to highs in the 40's! Geez, it's supposed to be in the 60's. Dan and I might take off for a day to the twin cities just to get away. Living in the boonies it's always nice to see a little city life! I didn't sub this week just spent time visiting with my Mom's sister and husband. You'll have to fill me in on that house you are working on. That is just so awesome! Well my dear, I should take a shower and get busy doing some work. Have a great week-end too, Cindy
