White Wednesday Sweet Pea purchases

Photographers avert your eyes! My studio's only light at the moment is a single floor lamp! These are the best photos I could snap on the point and shoot. Isn't this little Cupid adorable?! I love him. He came from the Sweet Pea sale in previous post. Wait, maybe I love him because my son Jack's hair looks just like this? lol Want to see some more Sweet Pea purchases?
Found these three cabinet cards. I just love how ornate they are. They were in excellent condition too. Sorry that I did not take them out to photograph for you.

I purchased this beautiful stack of naked books wrapped in a simple ribbon.  The vintage alarm clock was also from the sale.
LOVE this old birdcage she had...rubber chicken not included. lol  Thanks, Kara, for your help with the photos.  I also found an old sea sponge that is sitting on my studio shelves but no photo yet.  On the way home, we stopped at  Hidden Treasures Antiques in Oviedo and found a few fun things too...
This old suitcase is going to hold my sheet music for now.  I'm still getting organized and thinking through my storage.  I found some great rooster prints and this statue shopping this weekend. Rusty Rooster Vintage has to have a little rooster going on in her studio! -
Here's a look at how the shelves in the studio have been feathered and fluffed so far with my new goodies. I still need to paint my rooster weathervane a rusty brown.  -
I'm loving my handful of goodies from Sweet Pea's and my favorite local stores. I found some great things to help me decorate my new space. The electrician is coming Saturday morning. I can't wait. I picked out some fabric for drapes, and I'm putting an organization system in the closet next week. I'll share all this soon enough. Believe it or not, I've got some projects brewing too! I'll share those this weekend.  Thank you sweet friends for your follows and your comments. I appreciate them so much! Head on over to White Wednesday and checkout the party!  I'm also linking this up Friday night to Feathered Nest Friday!
