I fell in love with the vintage lamp immediately! It was in a shop at a nursery up in the foothills, believe it or not. It was love at first sight. I knew that I could find several spots around the house for it.
I also found these sweet little pottery pieces at some antique shops-- love the blues and greens. I just love the sweet raised flowers on the sides. (Just click the photo to see it up-close.) The tiny white ceramic basket was only 50 cents! It will be joining my little white pottery basket collection that is still in a box in my garage somewhere. Someday, when I have unearthed my collection I will share photos of it with you.
I found this print(?) at a street fair a couple of weeks ago... I just love the soft lines and colors. Oh, and the frame---looooove it!
This is a close up (sorry for the blurry photo- still learning this new camera!) of this aqua/robin's egg blue pottery piece. It's an interesting shape. I'm not exactly sure what it is, except I do think it may be an egg poacher. I saw something similar in a magazine, and that's what they called it. Whatever it is, I love it!
...and this I call, "Happy Tax Return to Me"--- a little splurge, but you guessed it-- I love it. It reminds me of Cinderella's pumpkin carriage. I'd never seen a pewter teapot in that shape. It's pudgy and sweet. I must have picked it up and held it a zillion times in the past few weeks. The last time I was at the shop, I told myself it was "A Sign" that it was still there waiting for me. Have any of you received any of those "signs" ever? (Come'on-- fess up!) I receive them far more than I should ever admit. Although, let me just say, there are "signs" that I have passed up that I regret to this day.
So, my advise for today is "Don't pass up A Sign." Especially when it's biting you in the butt. Ah, I do have my poignant, profound moments, don't I?
