I must be in a rut this week; I've found a few things to share and restock my booth at the antique mall~~
this week was mostly dedicated to house repairs and I wanted to be outside in the sunshine too.
Still too early here to plant flowers~~maybe in another week or two.
Two sweet china pieces: dainty cup and creamer~~orphaned from a complete set~~precious all the same. I passed up the composite shelf the first time I saw it. Then I thought (if it's still there) I'll buy it, paint it and repurpose it. It was $1.00~~it was an ugly gray and for some odd reason doesn't lie flat to the wall as it should. HOWEVER~~~ who could pass up those sweet birdies and berries! So, perhaps it would look pretty tucked into a flower garden. Maybe just used as a prop with other lovely things on big tray, cloche, etc.
My best buy of the week was these two precious "paint by number" seascapes. They are absolutely beautiful! I can't part with these right now~~I'm going to paint the frames white. I love these. And I couldn't grab them up fast enough; each one $1.00.
This big ol' silver percolator coffee pot ($3.00)~~
Perfect for holding flowers. The ONLY flowers I have blooming right now are my oak leaf hydrangeas! I love these graceful bushes so much that last year I bought three more for the backyard next to the fence and shed. The blooms are gorgeous.
And: below are my finds for my MAY 31st GIVE-AWAY:
A total of ~7~ little vintage items; so sweet! I hope you will come by often and find some inspiration or post a note. I love to hear from you. Have a great week!
