More Shabby Finds.........

Hey there girls..

Woo Hoo, its finally Friday and the work week is done for me, but here I am now still on the computer, but doing something much more fun than work.

I wanted to do another quick post to share with you the rest of the items I found at the antique malls last weekend.

Maybe it's kind of silly to have two nearly identical objects, but when that object is something like this, I don't think a girl should limit herself to one do you??

I just love these vintage flower baskets and I love them even more when they are in just the prefect shade of creamy yellow.

And resting in that basket are two vintage photos I found which were very inexpensive and which I plan on using to make a collage at some point.  

While my other yellow flower basket currently resides in my spare bedroom where I do my crafting and is filled with ribbons and other odds and ends, this new one now houses part of my collection of vintage crocheted potholders and will be kept in my kitchen/dining room.  A perfect way to display one of my favorite collections.

These potholders are one more thing I can never seem to have enough of. They are just too cute to pass up when I find them in my favorite pastel colors.

Well, that's all for my finds from last weekend.  I'm thinking maybe I'll have to try and hunt up some more new treasures this weekend.  Sounds like a pretty good idea to me.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.

See you soon!!

Hi Kim!

I just love coming for a visit to see what pretty finds you have bought or created. Love this pretty basket, and I must say, I love the vintage pot holders in it.
Enjoy your weekend!

I was looking around blogland today and those pretty pot holders caught my eye. I crochet and have made some but I love the pastel colors of the ones you have. Shannon

I love the basket and pot holders they are so fresh and summery which makes up for the lack of sun here in the North West of England.
Have a lovely weekend

Oh, how wonderful to know there is another kindred soul who can't resist those baskets! Every time I see one, and if the price is right, I have to bring it home with me - I just love them!! I also like the flat bottom ones that say harry and david on the underside.
