Hello, I am home from my get away with friends and excited to share some of my new found treasures with you.
One of my favorite things to find at thrift or yard sales are vintage garden themed items.
I’m chuckling because I took these out into the garden for photos and can you see that white stuff that is covering the table? Yup, that would be snow. And it’s actually hailing right now. Not hard, but still, hail!
A while ago the entire lawn was covered with that white stuff.
I paid $15 for this metal tray at a shop where a girl sold old furniture she had repainted with AS Chalk Paint. It’s really long so I didn’t think it was a bad price. I can see it filled with clay pots.
Even though it’s snowing I do have some pretty blossoms to share. My Weeping Crabapple tree is just starting to put on a show. This is my favorite time of year when all of the blossoming trees come bursting forth with such beauty!
I snagged the garden tools and the red handled drill at a yard sale for $3. I saw the same tools marked $14 at another shop.
This girl loves aqua so I was thrilled to find this tray from an old tool box and another sprinkler. The tray will be filled with succulents.
The pink and purple combination of my Flowering Almond bush and Lavender Twisted Redbud are perfect for Spring.
I already have an old pair of grass trimmers but these had a red handle. I can’t pass up anything red handled. lol! A $5 thermos to add to my collection.
You know how much I love plaid! This picnic pack was complete.
Sweet peach flowers are popping out on my Japanese Quince.
These pretty T.V. trays are going out under the pergola. They will be great for extra tables when we eat outdoors with family or friends.
One was missing, but $10 for the set of three wasn’t bad.
Beautiful Flowering Plum.
This last item will stay indoors, but I thought that this flowered candy dish was too unusual to pass up.
I had never seen one with a lid like this, have you?
Well, it won’t be today; but I can’t wait to get out and play with a few of my vintage garden treasures!
I really don’t mind a Spring snow. Helps bring gorgeous flowers. We all know the saying:
“April showers bring May flowers” Guess now I’ll say: “April snow helps flowers grow”.
I will be sharing with these parties:
