Like many of you I love to hunt for vintage finds and charming bargains. After Territory Days last weekend we closed our shop on Tuesday and headed out for the day. We needed a break!
On my journey, found this chocolate pot with a missing lid. I have ordered a lid that I am pretty sure will work, but until then, some lilacs worked fine to use it as a vase. It is hand painted with roses and violets and is from Germany and was just $6.00.
BYA: No, the lilacs weren't from my yard - mine aren't nearly so lovely as these!
This sweet basket is one you see often in antique malls, etc. I gave it a new coat of spray paint. The runner fits perfect on my pink buffet with a soft pink rose on each end. Another "smaller" sized cake platter is perfect for displaying a teapot or cream and sugar.
The English Royal Stafford Cup and Saucer is the pattern Lyringa and I also found a darling 36" square topper of linen with roses printed on it. All were very good prices. This is my idea of a fun day! Hope you have a great weekend.
