A Few Spring Fun Finds...and Still Time To Enter The Giveaway...


I had a few fun thrift store finds this week, that are inspiring me for some spring decorating!  This little alabaster urn is so sweet...such beautiful veining...


and it's perfect for holding this little bird's nest...



I love this old green transferware plate from Wedgwood!  Damaged, but so decorative, for the touch of green I want to add to my hutch this spring!



I always love finding vintage hangers...


They make such fun displays for photos and prints...like these eggs...



Finally, there was this charming Pewter cream and sugar from Holland... so pretty!


If you missed my last post, I have a GREAT GIVEAWAY going on right now!  Click HERE to enter!  I'll also put a link at the top of my sidebar!  The giveaway ends Thursday March 3rd, 10 PM CST.


I am joining A La Carte's Junkin Finds Friday

Until next time...
Linda

  8. I've already entered your giveaway (and my fingers and toes are still crossed), but I wanted to know if that Rusty Sun that is on NOVICA's site page is available someplace in their store? I couldn't find it and both my husband & I love it!

    AND, I have those same pants hangers. They were my Dad's and I just couldn't throw them out when he died. I like what you have hanging from yours!

    Lovely post as always and I hope your weekend is going well.

  15. Well, this is a yummy post. I'm enjoying how wonderful your new urn looks, and the layout of all your pictures. That textile peeking thru reminds me of the night I checked in on you and my server kept acting up whenever I tried to leave a comment. I was looking over your new guest room office, which i LOVE, when that Arts & Crafts runner at the end of the bed nearly made me cry it's so very very pretty and unusual. You keep the most distinctive things, and I really enjoy your vintage style. i like too many different things, but your collections seem so full of integrity to your taste.
