A Few Spring Fun Finds...and Still Time To Enter The Giveaway...

I had a few fun thrift store finds this week, that are inspiring me for some spring decorating!  This little alabaster urn is so sweet...such beautiful veining...

and it's perfect for holding this little bird's nest...

I love this old green transferware plate from Wedgwood!  Damaged, but so decorative, for the touch of green I want to add to my hutch this spring!

I always love finding vintage hangers...

They make such fun displays for photos and these eggs...

Finally, there was this charming Pewter cream and sugar from Holland... so pretty!

  12. Linda,
    The urn is beautiful. The lines and the veining are lovely.
    The plate is a wonderful shade of green!
    Just found out I have vintage hangers! (well, my dad did give them to me about 25 years I should have known!)

  13. Wow, your alabaster urn is gorgeous. Great find on the green transferware plate. Sounds like you're ready for spring!

  14. Linda,
    I have been and still am in Arkansas, and cant wait to catch up on your posts!
    I see you were ill awhile back. I hope you are 100% again!
    Is it spring there YET????
    I will catch up on your blog and leave comments much more often when we return from our cabin shortly.
    Happy soon to be spring!

  15. Well, this is a yummy post. I'm enjoying how wonderful your new urn looks, and the layout of all your pictures. That textile peeking thru reminds me of the night I checked in on you and my server kept acting up whenever I tried to leave a comment. I was looking over your new guest room office, which i LOVE, when that Arts & Crafts runner at the end of the bed nearly made me cry it's so very very pretty and unusual. You keep the most distinctive things, and I really enjoy your vintage style. i like too many different things, but your collections seem so full of integrity to your taste.

  16. Hi Linda,
    The urn does have great lines in it and the nest looks great in it.
