A Little Bit of This and That....
Hello! No real theme today. Just a little show and tell. Above is the beautiful plate my sweet mama bought me on our Mother's Day antiquing trip. I had one just like it years ago, but one fateful day I was cleaning and knocked down the shelf holding it and many of my other favorite dishes, breaking them all. I saved the dishes so I could salvage their beauty and make a mosaic with them, maybe around a mirror frame or picture frames.Next a photo of some of my favorite rhinestone pieces on a pretty dish. When I can't go shopping for vintage treasures, the next best thing for me is to play with the ones I have. I had fun yesterday while Mr. Baby was sleeping. I redecorated the top of my TV cabinet with some pretty white baskets, vintage hats, and a pretty white frame.I found two of the baskets at Goodwill for only a dollar each and I found the lovely swan there, also.
I also redecorated my jadite green side table with a curio cabinet filled with millinery flowers and other vintage goodies, a cute lamp I found at the Goodwill, a baby book, my own baby shoes and my favorite teacup.
My sweet little carnival doll- I love her. She always makes me smile.
And of course I have to show off this super sweet photo of Daddy and Mr. Baby.Michelle xoxo

Lovely displays of all of your pretty things. I love the pretty blue plate in the first photo. I have a few pieces of that pattern myself, but mine has the blush pink border instead of the pretty robins egg blue. In all my searching, I have yet to find any in the blue.

So glad to have you back blogging on a more regular basis again. Have a fun, safe and happy 4th of July!!

Came across your blog today and thought I'd leave a comment. I really like your dessert plate and your teacup w/ saucer. I collect teacups and dessert plates. Sorry to hear some of them broke...bummer. But what a great idea to use the broken pieces for a mosaic project one day.
