Look HERE >>>fun fantastic fabulous Finds
I so enjoyed all the keen decorating ideas.
Be sure to come back and take a look at the link above. You will enjoy it.
This is what I bought at the Grand Opening. I bought everything here except the yellow wire tray, pink cloth and the live green mums. The folded piece with the lace is the the skirt to a Christening gown, also seen hanging in the background of the next picture.
Had to have it for $1.00.
The wicker wrapped bottle is a brown Whiskey bottle and has this unusual metal cap. I really expected a green bottle.
Some of the label is still there. Cost $8.00.
The old American Family Scale is just so very nice and the rusty, chippy green paint is perfect for the time-worn look.
It was $15.00.
The bird nest was $7.00 ... did not come with the bird.
Could not pass this Batten-burg lace table cloth. It is one of the older ones and has some issues, but still just so beautiful, soft and easy to iron. $5.00
The two egg-shaped finials were $1.00 each. Likely for curtain rods.
Only $2.00 for this white pitcher used by 1-800-Flowers. Love the shape and the design around the top. Never can have too many white pitchers.
One thing I regret NOT buying is the metal fence/gate pieces. Went back on Monday and they were gone. I know the rule, "buy it when you see it" ... but I did not follow the rule.
With a few additions, I made an Easter display on my dining room table.
Displaying on this yellow wire tray will allow me to easily remove it. I added some lime green mums to enhance the eggs in the nest. Added more eggs ... three tiny clay pots with an egg in each ... three little screen wire nests (actually the little strainers out of flower sifters) ...
Would not be an Easter decoration without bunnies ... so had these three grungy ones to add. Sitting atop the scale is another wire strainer filled with "Olde Eggs" and a grungy tag.I took the Christening skirt, tucked it deep into the strainer and let the lace edge fall over the edge ... filled it with shredded sheet music and grungy painted wooden eggs.
Here it is without the lace.
Okay that way too.
Okay that way too.
What do you think? Do you like with or without the lace in the strainer?
Added my Rabbit Carrots.
I am thinking this could be my place setting for the Easter dinner. Pretty green cabbage leaf plate and maybe I will serve some cabbage soup.
The Carrot Bunny will have to find another place to nest.
Thanks for stopping by ... hope you like what I bought.
