Favorite Things

I have more than a few infatuations with
vintage things, and I adore vintage glass bottles of all kinds!

This old amaretto bottle is from my mother in law, and the texture of the glass is fantastic.

This charming, super chunky ironstone bowl weighs in at almost 1.5 pounds! It always
has at least a few cloves of organic garlic
in it for easy access. 

And of course....wood!  Love wooden spoons and
cutting boards, but don't believe in having a whole lot more than I would actually use, so my collection is on the small side!

 And then there are vintage crocks!
This Dundee Marmalade crock is a personal fave, but I love crocks period.

Again, I have just a small collection and
delight in the craftsmanship of days gone by.

So what are some of your favorite things,
or things that you collect?

Have a Blessed Day, My Friends!!

French Canning Jars~Swoon

Just had to pop by and share my obsession I mean LOVE, for these beautiful "new to me" vintage French canning jars!

Aren't these just the happiest little blossoms?

I have no idea what they are called, I think the label said "Stock". I picked them up at Trader Joe's in Winter Park.  The woody stems have a fragant lemony scent that is so lovely!

I purchased the jars from Laurie,

She is located in the U.S., so the shipping charges are much more palatable than purchasing them from abroad, and she is a delight to do business with!

Hope these pretties brightened your day~~
especially those of you who are housebound, and wondering if the snow will ever end!
It will, and Spring will be ever the more

Stay Warm and Be Safe!
It will be 28 degrees in sunny
central Florida tonight!!

Have a Joyful Day!

Vintage Pretties!

I have found some sweet treasures in my wondering about!
There is nothing quite like a lovely vintage find to make me break out into a happy dance!!

Here are a few that I love! 

Such a lovely shade of pale eggplant,
or dusty lavender!  And I am pretty sure
it is hand blown!

Of course, some of my personal button collection! But I love this little silver plate pedestal tray!  It is definitely a hard piece to part with!

So sweet and elegant!  Love the tarnished silver!!

This vintage cream ware gravy boat is
made in the USA and it is a fave that I almost
kept also!

These are all available for purchase in the shop!!

I will be adding more handmade, and more vintage goodies, including silver plate, into the weekend!

Hope your week is going well so far!!!

  Keep smiling!  
The world needs
more noticeably happy people, don't
you think?

Hugs and Joy to You!!
