A dear friend, Martha at Vintage Trifles, is a wonderful artist -- and a super person. I recently helped her at the "4 Friends Sale" and had a great time. Following the final set-up on Friday night I realized that one of her pieces, who we will name "Miss Rose", just HAD to come home with me. Isn't she FAB! She currently doesn't have a permanent home, but is on the sideboard in my dining room. DREAMY!
I LOVE Joy for her laughter and kindness. A couple of treasures found their way into my bag ... including some beautiful pink ribbons. Aren't they outstanding in their "pinkness"? I suppose I should use them for a project or something, but I just love to look at them and imagine the possibilities.
The heart next to the ribbons is also from Joy. Part of a favor she made for those of us attending her blog party and making crowns. I also found the PERFECT linen runner (THANKS JOY!!) and a frame I already have plans for. They might make a guest appearance in a future post.
Next stop on my way home was Diane's in Sublimity ... Molly Mo's. Diane is another kindred soul who has a great eye and many fun finds. A beautiful ironstone pitcher and vintage frame were talking with me like old friends, but I left them for another day. After all, I had already found the piece that made me laugh and smile. A miniature pitcher/coffee pot ... child size! Yes, it did have a crack ... and no lid. But who among us can claim to be perfect? So I brought it home to meet the family. The one from Diane is on the bottom row with no lid.
We live in a condo, and I have convinced myself that there is always room for my SMALL collectibles. I like small ... and I like dishes .... a perfect collection! These pots and pitchers are part of an extended family ..... here ...
and here ...Whew! Who knew that expecting a blog could be so much work? And frustrating ... and tiring? Thank you to Martha and Adrienne for helping me today. I have signed up for a beginning blogger class. Suppose it will be kinda like lamaze -- lots of helpful information and others who are just as awkward.
Hugs to all helping me on this journey to the Wonderful World of blogdom ...
