a lovely gift ~

Hello my friends ~ I hope your Saturday is going well ~

The other day, I went to the post office and picked up the mail.  There was an envelope for me ;-)

When I opened it ~ what a surprise!

A lovely french linen tea towel.  My friend Kim at White Whispers 2 U sent it to me ~ Oh Kim ~ Thank you so much!~  Now I had to use this right away ~

I am enjoying my new tea towel ~ I just LOVE it~!

I think it makes a lovely runner on my farmhouse table ~

What do you think?

I think blogging buddies are the VERY best~!

I think Mr. Vintage and I are going for a ride later on ~

What are you doing today?  Have you found any treasures lately?

I can't wait to hear ;-)

vintage cake plate ~

Happy Saturday, my dear ones ~  How is your day going?

My Hibiscus is loving the shade of the front porch in these scorching temps ~

I am trying to save the rest of my potted plants, they don't like these high temps, even though I water every day ~ sigh ~

This poor little thing didn't make it.  I might leave it there for visual interest ;-)

I decided that I would buy some flowers for the inside of the house ~ I love flowers, don't you?

To me, flowers make our house just feel so much more special ~

And so does this little cake plate.  I picked it up at an estate sale.  I just love the ruffles ~ can't wait for the temperature to cool so that I can bake a cake ~

Love the hobnail bottom ~ so cute ~

It's so hot Chessie won't even go outside.  He's moping.

Cheer up Chess, this won't last long~!

What are your plans for today?  Have you picked up anything special for yourself?

Please share with me ~ I can't wait ;-)

Enamelware ~

Happy Saturday my friends ~  Do you like enamelware?

I love, love, love enamelware and have quite a few pieces.

This little bucket holds Chessie's treats ~

Mr. Vintage surprised me last night when I came home from work.  He stopped at a yard sale and guess what he bought?

This little blue enamelware coffee pot ~ I just love it!~

Complete with lid ~ He also bought me this ~

This little white one will go in the camper ~

Do you collect enamelware?

Can't wait to hear from you

Random weekend finds ~

Hello my friends ~  First of all, I want to wish all my American Blogger Friends a Happy 4th of July week.  Have fun, stay safe and enjoy ;-)

I thought I would share with you some of my treasures that I have picked up this weekend ~

This was a tin topped kitchen table and Mr. Vintage cut it down for me and now it is my coffee table.  I just love it ~!

Can't hurt this table.  You just wipe it off.  Love it ;-)

I love this little chippy dresser.  Mr. Vintage and I picked this up and left it just the way it was.  It's now in my living room and holds by candles and my table cloths and napkins.

This little green chair was perfect for the little corner of my kitchen ;-)

A few little treasures for my little high chair.  I finally got around to painting this chair.  I found it at Pat's yard sale.

It was Canada Day yesterday so we have the day off today.  I am going to finish my laundry and do some fluffing ~

What are you doing today?

Can't wait to hear
