I'm on vacation...
and to me, vacation means doing what you like doing most.
So today, with my 4 year old sweetie pie in tow, I hit up a few thrift shops. I even splurged ($15) on this gorgeous old tray at my sweet friend Ellen's antique shop.
These pale blush pink embroidered napkins whisper spring, don't they? The old wire colander is great for industrial display. Can't pass up a wire basket. No sir!
This kitsch little vintage bunny whispered to me also, with her "come hither" bedroom eyes.
These Independence ironstone plates were pennies. One of them is pretty beat up. Call me crazy, but I love the cracks, crazing and tea stains.
Old metal embroidery hoops combine the softness of sewing with the industrial-ness of timeworn metal. I love the combined textures.
Oh hello there! Did the bunny whisper to you too Haddy Liz?
Also for pennies was this pressed glass (butter dish?) and some old crafting stamen. It's even prettier in person!
A coiled metal letter holder is always fun to play with.
And there you have it! Our loot for the day. And what a beautiful, sunny spring-like day it was. ☼
