~Some New*Old Treasures~A delightful afternoon spent with a friend ~ lunch and shopping!

I came home with a few goodies!
An old tin in some of my favorite cottage colors!

A sweet delicate apron with faded ribbon embroidery.

Cute little bluebird planters...
A vintage "tip tray" and old fabric flower....

And my lovely friend brought me a big stack of her old magazines...

What a sweet apron. I had never realized those little trays were tip trays before, that's fun!

Hi Becca..

What a lucky girl you are. Those sweet little blue bird planters are so cute and are just perfect for you. I also love the little tip tray. Have fun browsing through all those pretty decorating magazines. I love to do that myself. I always find so much inspiration from them. I just wish they had more decorating magazines that focused more on the shabby chic/cottage style of decorating that both you and I love so much.

Take care..

Hi Becca,

I am loving all your bluebirds. Michelle and I are antiquing up a storm. Bluebirds are EVERYWHERE in the antique shops, but very pricey. I want them all, and I always think of you.

Have a great day Becca,
