Flea Market Finds...and a BIG Thank You!

Hello dear friends! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! This is going to be a brief post because my little one is just not letting me stay on the computer too long. But I just want to share a few flea market finds from this weekend. I scored a pair of antique french plates from a favorite vendor, which I have happily added to my growing collection.

I love the crazing on this piece of green & white transferware. It really adds to its charm.

I coupled it with some purple tulips, as they were given as gifts to me for my birthday {today I am one year "younger"}. ;)

Here I put my birthday bouquet of tulips inside my french zinc pitcher. I bought this some time ago for only $35.00, which I think is pretty great considering how much these can sell for.

Before I end this post, I just want to give a BIG THANK YOU to all my friends here in blog land who has ever taken the time to comment and/or send me encouraging messages. Just know that I deeply appreciate all of your kind words and truly thank you for your new & ongoing friendships.

I hope everyone enjoys their week!

Sending you big HAPPY BIRTHDAY wishes!!!!! Hope you had a wonderful day...beautiful green transferware and tulips surely had to add to a lovely day. :)

I love the plates. I have such a hard time finding ones with just flowers on them...I already have a huge plate collection so maybe it's a good thing. :)

Your newly scored transferware plates are lovely, and the purple tulips in the zinc pitcher look fantastic! The combo makes for a dreamy, romantic vignette.
