Only having a few minutes to stop in to one thrift store today, I was pretty pleased with what I found.
My friend Char over at Grace and Favor has done a really fantastic tablescape for the 4th of July. You must go take a look. I noticed her pretty footed glasses. My mom has some similar. When I saw a similar set of four for $2.00 I knew they were going home with me.
I also found this sweet, precious little girl’s cup. It wasn’t priced yet, as someone had just donated it. The lady told me I couldn’t buy it until they had a chance to price it and they were about to close. I told her if I couldn’t buy it now, then it would be gone the next time I came in. I must have had the best pouty look on my face because she changed her mind and said I could have it for $1.25! Yah!!
The entire alphabet wraps around both sides of the handles.
It’s as sweet as it can be!
As if I need one more frame…..
I loved the fact that this one is mirrored and it has Mother inscribed.
It can hold a picture of my mother or perhaps my daughter with her children.
To me it has the most vintage look…too pretty to let go. It was .75!
Changing the subject, I want to let you know about a product I use with my business. It’s a water look mixture that looks so real. It really looks as if you have cut some flowers from your garden and placed in fresh water.
I will say this is just a bit tricky. You must have everything all set up and ready to go, stems cut just so.
My first box must have been old as the mixture was thick and turned cloudy when I poured it. I ruined a small vase as there is no turning back once you have poured. I was able to save the flowers and start over again.
I purchased this box at Michael’s.
I don’t like that wire showing through on this stem, but there is a story behind it. Originally this peony was set in a very, very shallow vase (and the bottom of the stem didn’t show). My daughter was going to give it to a friend for her birthday. Well, Little Max accidentally broke the vase and she ended up giving the friend something else. I told her to save the flower and I would see what I could do. Still looks pretty good, and I’ll just give it to Angie.
These tulips are for a customer. I have used tape as a grid of sorts to hold the flowers in the position I want them until it sets up. It will look much nicer without the blue tape!
The picture doesn’t do this justice, but here is a gorgeous, big ole fat hydrangea, filling this container entirely.
I had just a little bit more of the water mixture, so I quickly grabbed another little vase and added the second flower on the hydrangea stem.
The next pictures are showing the REAL stuff….nothing faux about this water below!
Cathy over at Cathy’s Out Junkin’Again recently showed her beautiful, freshly cut cone flowers.
Mine are blooming too, so I put them in this REAL VASE, with REAL WATER!! I’m not ALWAYS FAKE, friends!!!
Aren’t these just BEAUTIFUL flowers???
I love them!
This little vase, complete with it’s own tray was found at a local store having a great sale!
It’s always nice to have you stop by 47th Street!
I am joining Glenda at Tootsie Time today, showing one thing growing in my yard right now.
Go over and take a look at all the pretty yards.
