Always on the hunt!

I've been doing a little more thrift shopping throughout the week.

I love the hunt, it's always fun to find a treasure hidden among the "not so desirable" items.

One of the many things I pick up are dishes.

I just love the look of the mis-matched plates and bowls stacked up high.

So, tomorrow I'll be on the hunt again.

Until next time, "Happy Hunting".

Another Wonderful White Wednesday!

Wow, it's already "White Wednesday"!

I love White Wednesdays!

It's so much fun looking for things white.

I'll start off with simple and practical things around the house.

How about flour, useful and white! pretty French dishes.

Freshly washed bedding.

Here is a wonderful vintage set I picked up this week-end.

The spinning tray underneath was missing but my #1 found it!


Vintage bowls and dishes, can you ever get enough of those?

Vintage millinery, I definitely can't get enough of that!

Thank you Kathleen of Faded Charm for hosting this fun event!

Vintage wedding toppers.

I love the color as well as the delicate flowers on many of them.

So pretty!


Fluffy pillows with vintage lace!

Books and Concrete!

If you'd ask me, "What did you get for Valentines Day?" I'd tell you, "My #1 loaded and transported about a thousand pounds of concrete for me this week-end."

I have to say he's wonderful!

What a great attitude!

I'm sure I was a little more stressed with him loading these items then he was.

The other thing I purchased were.....

Decorating Books!

And not "just" decorating books but FRENCH decorating!

And what's even better, half price!

I was in French heaven!

So, tonight I'll be watching the Olympics and looking through these wonderful books.

Oh yes, add to that a little something the hubs has picked up to eat tonight.

I can't wait to see what it is!

REMEMEBER, you have until Tuesday to enter your name for my GIVEAWAY!

apron.ology and GIVEAWAY!

Look what I found this week!

Yeah! The newest "apron.ology" magazine!

What a wonderful magazine to look through.

There are so many pretty aprons to appreciate

and so many talented ladies.

While looking through this magazine, I was reminded of all the wonderful apron patterns I've been collecting.

I decided to pull one of them out and start creating my own apron.

I decided to use a sweet vintage slip.

The first step was cutting into it.

Why is that so hard?

I closed my eyes and started cutting.

The slip seemed to combine well with a cream colored cotton fabric which I found.

I used a long piece of vintage crocheted lace.

It was one of my favorite pieces.

I just love the sweet little roses crocheted into each section.

Well, this is the final result.

I thought it turned out nicely, very sweet and feminine.

I hope you like it!'s another "GIVEAWAY"!

Just leave a comment or tell about it on your blog for an additional chance and I will enter your name for this apron.

That's it, pretty simple.

I'll draw a name on Tuesday the 16th.

Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek at what I've been up to.

It's A Keeper!

Do you remember this post?

Back in September I picked up this pretty vintage rose ephemera.

If the truth be known it's been just sitting in my kitchen while I decide if I really want to sell it or not.

I guess today I decided to keep it!

I had a vintage picture frame waiting for something spectacular to put in it.

The two pieces matched so perfectly.

I enjoy looking at the beautiful old roses and the cottage scene in the background.

There is a bit of foxing on it, but I love it!

On another note, I listed a couple of new items in my blog store!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
