Wonderful Vintage Finds

The season has begun!  Sale season is here!

I'm hoping that on April 21 the weather is sunny and a little warm.  I want to have my garage sale on that day for one day only.  I can't believe how much has accumulated since my last one in the fall. I'm always bringing treasures home and swapping them for something in my house.  I love the change.

Ironstone pitchers are still on my LOVE IT list. I found this one plus the great German container, with the flowers, at the same sale this weekend.


Along with these vintage tablecloths.  All from the same sale.  Her tastes were similar to mine so I just kept making a pile and making a pile.....


Since Austin was on spring break, I "forced" him to go treasure hunting with me.  We found this really cute bunny and nest at a rummage sale.  (He found a vintage Gameboy Color so he was happy).


One of my favorite nurseries to spend some time at is Blumen Gardens in Sycamore Illinois. http://blumengardens.com/.  We stopped there and shopped for awhile.  It is amazing inside their retail areas.  It is a definite MUST visit during the growing season.  Across the street from the garden center is the owners house.  It is amazing to see it when the plants are in bloom.  I couldn't believe how amazing it was at this time of year also with the flowers popping up in front of a shed in the background.


I have been on a succulent mission for a while now. Last summer I found this iron stand and wasn't sure what I would use it for. (It would also look good with potted herbs).  For now, I potted up succulents for a really fun display.


Happy treasure hunting!
