Not only are my tulips and crocus popping up, but so are the sales.
My friend Cecilia and I went on a road trip and discovered Waterford Unique Antique Market at 209 N. Milwaukee St in Waterford Wisconsin. It was such a fun place and we found loads of treasures. One space that we both loved was Bailey's Blissful Scentsations. She makes the most wonderful soaps from goats milk. Each bar has a scalloped edge. We couldn't resist buying a few bars. One of her soap displays was a vintage bathroom sink holding the men's bars of soaps. It was really fabulous! We especially loved the truck inside the old True Value store.
I lucked out recently when I found a barn sale. My van was filled in every space available. I bought some of the most amazing farm items. I kept a few things (of course) and am putting the rest, little by little, into the Carriage House. I only find a sale this great a few times a year. How wonderful that it was so early in the season.
In between all of this treasure hunting, I wanted to create small Easter gifts. I used terracotta pots and hot glued vintage trim to each of them. I shredded a French dictionary to use for the filling and added rabbit and chick figurines and some eggs. For the greeting, I used vintage Easter greeting cards and attached them to wooden sticks. I think they are pretty cute.
I came across this red truck at the Waterford Unique Antique Market and had to have it. For now, it's holding one of the Easter pots. It was too great of a treasure to pass up.
Wishing all of you a wonderful Easter! May it be blessed with family and friends.
Happy treasure hunting! Start looking for those sales....
