I ran into the antique shop today with my doll beds and a few other items I'd worked on over the past several days. I spent some time arranging my display just so...and felt good about it as I walked away. When I stopped by the counter to see how I did in sales last month, I was bummed. Apparently February was a bleak month for a lot of folks in the antiques business, myself included. I left feeling a bit discouraged but headed off to my favorite thrift shop in hopes of finding a few treasures...determined to turn my day around.
As I walked slowly through the store, I took everything in visually, trying to imagine the potential in cast-off pieces of furniture and home decor. I picked up a few children's books, baskets and other smalls then made my way to the counter...satisfied, but not overjoyed with my finds. As I walked to the register, I glanced in the glass case. There, on the bottom shelf tucked behind a crystal water pitcher and an old camera was a lovely old curvy piece of pastel pottery. I knew it at first sight...a 1940's Hull vase in the Wildflower pattern! It was the perfect piece to add to my small collection. It did have a chip on the rim, and was covered in a layer of ancient dirt but at $10 it was coming home with me and suddenly my day was looking much brighter!
|Isn't she pretty?|
|I've discovered some charming Easter scrapbooking paper and look at how sweet it is in this pink frame? The colors compliment the pottery and the bunnies add a touch of spring and whimsy to the collection.|
|I am fortunate enough to have both a mother and mother-in-law who raises chickens. We are never in short supply of pretty green eggs at our house!|
Thank you so very much for your sweet visit! Best Wishes and Blessings to You!
