I Must Have These

I am NOT going to become a packrat.  I am not.  Though it appears I collect a lot of junk (very useful, wonderful vintage items); I refuse to become a hoarder.  Hince~~I buy and keep some of the things I love but, for the most part I will end up taking them to my booth for resale.  Ok~~I feel better letting you know I don't want to become a packrat!


So~~I found another little teapot to add to my collection.  It was so cheap I couldn't resist. 


And here's that other Easter Egg~Shaped plate; 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby:
This one matches the vintage pink napkins I bought for tablescaping.


More old silver stuff:  I probably won't sell these for awhile (they are small and fit nicely in a drawer so that I don't look like I'm hoarding)~~~





And this is the rest of the milkglass items I bought for 10 cents each (except the leaf~shaped one~~it was a $1.00)~~bought the dime stuff Tuesday at our local Habitat Resale Shop:


This is one LARGE bunny!  So beautiful and came with another smaller one: both are carved wood and painted~~$5.00 for the set:


The ribbed~bowl is ironstone (has a slight hairline crack) so was a bargain for 50 cents:  I'm happy with it as a planter for my baby Ficus. 


See that little aqua shelf?  It's not staying (told you I am not a packrat!)~~~bought for $1.98 at Goodwill a few weeks ago and finally got around to painting it~~although~~I'm really starting to like it on this wall~~~
