Here is the "something pretty" I promised to show you.....

A vintage rose litho from 1902.... I walked into my favorite vintage "shabby shoppe", and there it was!! Just waiting for me! Amy said she had just brought it into the shoppe a mere hour before. We both declared it was "meant to be"! Love what it says at along the bottom..... Wonder if that applies to a Princess too? ;)

I'll be having sweet dreams with those pretty roses nearby.....
Wishing you all lovely dreams as well! :)

How's your weekend going?
Mine is busy but good. Brad's (youngest's) band had a gig last night (don't I sound so hip saying that? ;) that lasted into the wee hours. Always a fun time.
Mowed "the meadow" today. Whew! Now it's time to make some 'bsketti for supper and perhaps relax a bit with hubby......
I'll have something pretty to show you next post!! :)
P.S. Found this cream tank top with crochet lace and pearl edging at Goodwill! Just my style!!

Remember Me? The junk-lovin' girl who can't resist a pretty pink cup like this? :)
Or a vintage jewelry box like this?
Especially when the inside is this gorgeous color!
Similar to the color of this Eames-era chair I picked up for FIVE dollars!! :)
These were all from a garage sale that my mom found for us..... She bought a beautiful antique wicker rocker. I will try to get a picture for you soon!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you are having a great week!!

Her lawn looks like a meadow

And if she mows the place

She leaves the clover standing

And the Queen Anne's Lace.

~Estate Sale Goodies~
My mom and I went to a local estate sale Thursday. At first, I thought everything was overpriced (in the house), but when I went out to the garage, I found some vintage goodies that were more in my price range.....
Such as this vintage wallpaper-covered box with drawers. I have wanted one of these "4-ev-uh"!! Finally I have one!!

Also this old sewing box, still filled with notions. The inside is a bit musty smelling and dirty, but I'm sure I can freshen it up!

Sweet little band of old flowers.

A vintage wastebasket with a bluebird on it! Oh my!! Also needs a (very) good cleaning, but..... !!!!!

My mom found a cute little rabbit for her garden..... my mom is not into vintage/shabby/chippy/rusty like I am, so we shop well together! (well, except for her wondering, sometimes outloud, "What on earth do you want THAT old thing for?" LOL! )

Hope you have a great weekend!!

~Pretty Dishes~ I bought these dishes at Goodwill to put as edging/planters in my Enchanted Garden......
They looked so pretty just stacked together, that I had to snap some pics of them first!

Pretty dishes make me smile :)
What is making you smile today??
