Roses & Butterflies

I was shopping my favorite store on Saturday, and found some great treasures.

This porcelain piece, below,  is my favorite part of this haul.


I couldn't believe I found another Willow Tree.  Most of mine came from GW.

Found this nice piece of crystal,

much like the larger one below.

I found some nice shirts to wear around home.
The polka dot Kim Rogers is in very nice condition.

I found, new in bag, a Noble Excellence coverlet, King size, with 2 shams. I priced it online at $199.00.  I gave $13.91.
I also found 2 very nice picture frames.  I carried 3 or 4 more items around with me, but ended up deciding what I liked best. There was a gorgeous gold dish, a 3 tiered stacked container, a piece of tangerine colored glass, and a picture of a little girl, that I really wanted, but I couldn't get them all, well I could have, but I didn't.  All in all it was a great trip with some new favorite finds.  The roses and butterflies figurine sits beside the porcelain vase I found a little earlier.

Gorgeous Vase

Sometimes when I'm shopping, I will mindlessly walk down the aisles not noticing everything.  Then at the end of the aisle, I'll look back from a distance to see if anything catches my eye. That's how I found this gorgeous vase.  At  first I just plopped the pink tulips in the vase, but it wasn't the look I wanted.

Isn't the vase unique?  Not a chip anywhere.

Today, I went to Wal Mart, and found exactly the flowers for the look I wanted.  I bought 4 stems @ $2.00 each.  A pink magnolia, pink hydrangea, white magnolia, and a stem with several small magnolias.  The softness of the colors were exactly what I wanted.

It's on the hall tree, and the scarf is one that belonged to my MIL, and has pink and white crocheted trim, and the little girls with crocheted bonnet.  I can't remember the name of those right now.  Maybe Bo Peep.  My next post will show what I later found to go with this!

If you assume that the place I shop most is Good Will, you are right.  For this Friday, I'm going to show you some recent goodies from there.

Gorgeous tureen.  I'm on the lookout for a white glass spoon for it.

 The dish and small cloche.
 Milk Glass, found several pieces that day.

 I've found lots of crystal.

 I had never seen this in black.  Love it!

Lovely aqua bottle.

 Maybe a butter dish.  The plate has sides that fit snugly beneath domed top.

Plate, and all but one of the Willow Tree collection.

 What's not to love about this dove?

 Recently found this little purple lidded jar.  So pretty.
Lamp, frame, pink box and vase, all from Good Will.

Ways to Add Your Favorite Color to a Room

I have placed some turquoise accents in the guest room, so now it goes with the rest of the house.

Some of the easiest ways to add a favorite color to a room, is with pillows, throws, candles, pictures, etc. I've made a few changes in the guest room again.

I placed the white quilt on this bed a few weeks ago, and since I decided to add some turquoise accessories, I switched out the curtains with some I already had.

 I hung curtains that are sheer, but have aqua and green and taupe print on them, along with a turquoise throw, and a green pillow.

The little dress is the one I was wearing when our house burned.  I was 2 years old, and my Mother had made the dress from a flour or feed sack.  She saved it for years and I'll always keep it.
Turquoise accessories are on the night stand, and now this door can be used to enter the screened porch.

That's how easy it is to add your favorite color to a room. Just shop your house.

You don't have to have lots of the color, just enough to give your room interest.
