A Vintage Ladder

Hey my friends!
I hope you are having a wonderful week :)
Remember I told you I would share photos of my vintage spring green ladder?
Well, I'd like to introduce,  "Miss Green" :


She is a bit shaky. Not as strong as she once was.


She looks quite gorgeous holding bouquets of fresh flowers
and French vintage linens.


I must say, her long legs are still her prettiest feature.


One of her best colors is lavender.


Adorning French clay pots makes her feel important.


Oh, she does look good in pink.


And don't forget, burlap would be one of her favorite accessories.


She keeps her slim figure with daily exercise, 
which involves being moved around the dining room for photos.


Her paint has chipped over the years, but she has aged very well.


She is not a show off, however, quite modest.


I am happy to have "Miss Green" as a permanent guest in our home.
She does not require much attention.
We are now BFFs :)

I am sharing her with these parties:
Vintage Inspiration Friday with Debra
French Inspiration with Jill
Show and Tell Friday with Cindy
and
Saturday Nite Special with Donna
Thanks so much for hosting, ladies!

Blessings
Becky C

She does have the perfect color and that lavender just sets it off so beautifully! I have been looking for the perfect ladder/shelving for my booth. Have seen lots of great ladders but none with perfect coloring. Happy Voila day and a beautiful weekend. xo Lynn @thevintagenest

Amy Kinser said...

Your new BFF, Miss Green, is just beautiful. Did you know that she sent me a little message and said she wanted to take a trip to visit Tennessee? I told her that I just couldn't do that to her because she looked so beautiful there in Louisiana. I think it must be that the same person who built her must have built my pretty green carpenter's box and they are wanting to be back together again...just sayin...

HA HA...You have made your ladder just beautiful with all of the pretties you adorned her with.

Heaven's Walk said...

Miss Green is a cutie pie, Becky! She's the perfect patina green and looks fabulous with the linens and flowers on her. :) Sweet, Beck!

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

She'd be my BFF, too! She's very pretty. Her accessories are just right, too. :)

nancy huggins said...

I bought an old wood ladder at a Garage sale a few years ago for $1.00 and my husband laughed and then he decided that it was good enough to use...maybe one of these days I will swipe it back and paint it green.
Love your ladder :)

Wendy said...

She is lovely! I have wanted a friend like her for such a long time.♥

Cheryl said...

Hi just love "Miss Green"...she's a perfect color. I have a small ladder in chippy gold paint that I love...but "Miss Gold" is not as cute as "Miss Green"!

Oh, and I love the song. It always reminds me of Sleepless in Seattle. :)

Your ladder is perfect in green...what a great place to hang accessories. I wish I had porch where I could put my small green wooden ladder that I inherited from my MIL.

I, too, have an old ladder just like this one. My brother is going to paint it yellow for me and it's going in front of the big window on my porch. I've got some pretty Hull potter that's going to adorn it!
