This vase is a Hall USA, $7. I found it at the GW in Ocala, FL. If any of you are near Ocala, there is a HUGE GW there and I love going there, it's about 45 minutes from my house, but usually worth the drive, especially since Ocala has a Hobby Lobby too and my home town doesn't. So this trip I picked up these faux lavender blooms 50% off. The table scarf I found at the GW for $.99,.
This is my first tassell, found it at Marshall's on my trip to TN. This is just too cute.
OK not a great picture of my cloche and stand. I found these at the SA in my home town, while I was wandering in the store they announced a 15 minute sale of 75% off all knick knacks, so this was less than a $1. The base was wood stained and I spray painted it black. Also they had a sale on furniture and I found an adorable chair that I got for $4.99, was originally priced $19.99. I am working on it and will show you all when I finish with it. I am painting it a great aqua color, can't wait to see how it turns out.
This was another goody from SA also included in the sale, I think I paid $1.80 for it, it looks wonderful with all my ironstone and white dishes.
I have admired these frogs for a while now, usually when I have seen them at antique stores they are asking way too much for them. When I was in Daphne AL visiting my SIL, she took me to a local antique mall. well I found a couple of frogs, I love the vintage color of the green one. They were about $3-4 I think.
A biscuit cutter, also from the antigue mall. There is that cool vintage green color again, I love that color.
While in TN I discoverd my mom has a large collection of these wonderful blue Ball canning jars. The 2 larger ones are 2 quart size, I think these are so beautiful and mom gave them to me, so free!! You may notice the table scarf, it is stitched in a wonderful blue thread around the edges of the detailed design, that is another of my GW scores under $1
This is me playing with my camera, trying to get the wonderful hues of blue, the platter is a beauty aqua color, a new purchase at Marshall's $2,99. Love my Lobelia (I think that is the correct spelling) in the pot in the background
This plate and the following plates were picked up for pennies at SA and GW.
Except this is the new one from Marchall's a close up.
