Well..I don't have anything in a tea cup/tea pot theme as far as stitchery items go...
but...I do like to collect such things as vintage hankies,doilies, and women's gloves and the like...
so...I thought I'd share a photo of some of my collection.
Now mind you this is a wee portion of the collection...ha..I have a few more..but don't we usually..hee hee.
Anyhow here are a few of my fun things.
I've been thrifting a little bit lately..not much...just a little...ha... and came across some really fun finds the last few days. It is always so fun to find things that you really like..and that make a "housse" a ...HOME!!
A vintage watering can for a real steal of a deal! I filled it with bright cheery gerbera daisies(fake ones..ha) and have it in my entry way now.
Then I found a mixed set of 12 Wedgewood blue bar ware glasses from the 1950's!
And then a very large serving tray/that was originally going to be altered with altered art..but..it makes for such a nice tray to display tea cups on top of and of course perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals..so..it won't be altered after all.--------------
Then my dear mama sent me these absolutely darling little plates to use in my decor! Aren't they just lovely! Thanks mom!
Last but not least are the latest finds in my yard/ in pots in my yard up under the arbour.
I was given this lovely copper colored iris plant several years ago by a photographer friend named Jenn..and I honestly thought that it had died..way back then..and lo and behold thre it was sending up lovely new growth this year in a large pot..I had no idea what I had planted in the pot..then all the sudden it started sending up stalks..and I was like.."whoa..some sort of iris!..but what color?" Then all the sudden here comes an iris in a burgundy~ish/copper color!!
Isn't it just amazing! The stalk had about 5 irises on one stalk! Breathtaking!
Then my dear daddy gave me a bunch of these lovely red amaryllis bulbs before he passed away..they were some of his favorite flowers. So I keep them in a large terra cotta pot and keep them covered in the winter when the temperatures get real cold, as I have a sentimental attachment to these of course. Anyhow..these beauties have started blooming this week..and aren't they just gorgeous too! Love them!
Well..I hope to be able to post some more images of my apron collection before we start a new theme on the Farm Girl Blog A Thon also.
Thanks for visiting with me today! I hope that you all have a lovely weekend!
