Hello my friends, I did something this week that
I have never done before.
I visited 6 thrift shops in two days. Wow, not that's a whole lot of treasure seeking fun!
After unloading my haul and cleaning it up I decided to have a little 'flower fun'.
(for the sifter I simply stuck a small piece of wettened floral foam inside and pushed the stems in)
Using a $5 bunch of flowers from the grocery market and adding cuttings from my garden I played with some of my fun finds.
I know that many of you are like me and love having flowers in your home. Flowers in a vase are always pretty, but flowers in unusual containers are fun, fun, fun!
(I just stuck the stems inside, but if you wanted it to last you could place a small jar of water inside)
It was instant love when I spied this old sewing basket. The decal is simply precious!
I must have been having a mello yellow kind of week, because I found a lot of sweet yellow items.
I didn't do anything with the batter bowl, but it could easily be filled with flowers. It's not vintage, but too cute to pass up!
An aqua melamine sugar bowl filled with blooms.
Now wouldn't that be a delight to wake up to in the morning?
I love the design on this sugar dispenser, (at least I think that's what it is). Almost looks like it came from the 'Pioneer Woman' line.
A couple of simple blossoms is all it needed.
I grouped the sifter and sugar dispenser together on my farmhouse kitchen table
in the basement
Flowers help bring a room together,
don't you agree?
Afterwards I realized that the yellow sifter has the exact same design as one of my red ones. That's okay,
Ilove them both!
I had the plaid thermos, but I found the fire king casseroles and the yellow jello mold.
It could be turned over and filled with water and flowers as well.
Red striped pitcher, again not old;
but love, love, love!
How fun is this big eyed owl? His eyes and beak were bright blue and UGLY! But I repainted them and now he's too cute!
A couple of zinnias gives him a tufted
Last of all, I placed a couple of qt. bottles inside my $2 rain boots and added flowers.
Certainly an eye catcher as you enter into our bedroom!
