I know that many of you love to do what I love to do! Get in the car and go hunt for VINTAGE TREASURES! Yesterday we spent the day going North above Denver to some places we hadn't been to for years. Yes- we got lost once but hey....that's to be expected...right? I was thinking about finding a piece like the one lower right below to paint shabby chic to put on top of a Victorian mantel. This one is under "consideration" and is an old organ top.
I also saw 2 old buffet tops with mirrors that would work.
Along the journey we took a little time for Blackberry- Raspberry pie below and sat outdoors for a break.
Some of you remember the set of 8 Johnson Brothers Windsor Ware plates (Harvest Fruit Pattern) I got last year for fall - Thanksgiving and I found one more for the set which is good in case I break one sometime. I posted about it right here:
I don't know about you but if you really live - things do get broken along the way.
The Hobnail Vase below is my second one - hubby broke the first one so I was glad to find a replacement for bouquets!
I am so enjoying the German teaset I got earlier in the month and you can read a post about that here: http://bernideensteatimeblog.blogspot.com/2012/08/wildflower-teaset-for-tea-in-garden.html
I also found a great glass cake platter to add to my collection which is ? Not sure, but I have quite a few and you know how wonderful they are for Afternoon Tea Buffets!
I am late for "Open House" but would love to have you link below - perhaps a post you have on Antiquing, Home Decor, Crafting, Gardening or Cooking - please link up the post below! Would love to have you!
