Lately, I've enjoyed photographing some of my thrifty collections.
I've been very fortunate through the years to find copper pieces at the thrift store and at flea markets.
Something new to collect:  I've started looking for ironstone while I'm out thrifting.
It's so pretty, and I love the older pieces with crazing.
A little laundry vignette with an ironstone bowl...
Ironstone with hydrangeas...
Found this pretty pitcher and isn't it cute with tulips?!?

It's hard for me to leave a pretty vintage plate at the thrift store...
so I usually don't!  ;)
These ironstone bowls were .49 cents each!!!
I'm always looking for these three things...
vintage blue and white plates
vintage green planters
and vintage linens!
What do you love to collect?

spring has sprung

The daffodils are saying hello, Spring!
These pretty vintage planters are ready to showcase some blooms!
I love all the spring time colors!

The weather has been lovely and I hung pillowcases out one afternoon.
Found this sweet chair at the thrift.
It's going to be so cute in my garden this spring!
It's funny how sometimes all my thrift store finds kinda go together...
like all these springy turquoise ones.
Looks like I need breakfast in bed :0)
Happy Spring!

fading beauty

Maybe I'm weird, but I prefer roses when they start to fade.  
I love how the colors deepen and begin to look more dramatic, moody.
Had to break out the macro lens for this beauty!
 This is my favorite shot from the day...

life lately

A post with random things I've been doing:

We've had warmer weather lately and it sure has been delightful.  
I've actually enjoyed time outside in the garden! 
 I've been able to thrift a little, too!
I told a story on Instagram last week about how when I go thrifting, 
I seem to pick out things that go together but don't even realize it until I get home and stage a pic.
See the two pics below...
And, it happens all the time!
Afun day at the thrift!
 Playing around with my milk glass last week.  
Was fun to arrange some of my favorites for a prop shoot!
Pink tulips just make everything better.
Am I right?
Hope you're enjoying your February!

thoughts of spring

Are you ready for Spring? I surely am!
We've had warmer weather lately; I know it's just a tease.
But, I'm happy focusing on spring-time colors.
A few new pics to share:

A pretty bouquet for this week.
 I love the pattern in this vintage jar.
Just a few of my favorite plates displayed on a vintage dish drainer.
As always, Spring can't get here soon enough!

strawberry scones forever!

Breakfasting on the weekends is one of my favorite things to do.
Mr. Tidy usually makes breakfast for us that consists of grits and eggs.
Thought I'd change it up a bit this weekend and make scones.
This was my first time making them and 
all I can say is...delish!
I'm hooked.  
 I think strawberries are the cutest fruit, don't you? 
All these pretty dishes and linens came from the thrift.
Happy Weekending, friends!
