Inspired by Country Living


Today on I was on my way to Michaels to pick up some polymer clay
because I have decided that I want to try making some dishes for
my miniature dollhouse.  Of course I had to stop at a favorite antique
mall and look what I saw ...
a vintage library card catalog painted the loveliest shade of blue.
It's low enough to use as a coffee table.  Vintage card catalogs are
so popular right now.  I am sure that Country Living magazine has
helped to fuel that interest. 





And this wonderful armoire.





And a great farmhouse table ~ great chairs too.



Love, love, love this chippy Hoosier!





You all know the romantic in me would be drawn to
these sweet cups.




And this transferware.



And my new current fave ~ vintage pillow protectors.



Oh and this handled tray.  I really needed to restrain myself
with this one.  I had to keep reminding myself of the budget.

Happily Joining ~


Bentley has spent the past two days enjoying the mild 
weather and bringing in twigs and leaves.  The mop and 
vacuum are working overtime!

Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  15. I'm impressed that you were able to stick with your budget, but sometimes window shopping is just as much fun.

    Lovely to have you at Seasonal Sundays.
