Two random things to share with you.....
First, I was a bit naughty and spent some of my etsy money on something for me!
After church on Sunday, there was a small little antique/craft show in the city park. I convinced Worker Bee and Baby Bee to buzz by (although they stayed in the car - it was that small) and check it out. Well, the Boring Bees stayed in the car and I ventured out. Found this sweet couple where everything was 1/2 off. Lots of cute stuff, but I'm on a budget so I only bought one vintage treasure.......
It looks like jadeite.
I have some reproduction jadeite and authentic vintage jadeite and this feels more like vintage
but the color is a little off.
See it compared to my Jane Ray jadeite teacup?
The couple was so nice and the man gave me what I felt was a good deal - vintage or not - from one collector to another.
Do you think $10 was too much?
Second, I also have to share my favorite Easter vignette this year. (No, I haven't taken down my Easter decorations yet - I got them out so late this year I wanted to enjoy them for a bit.)
I TOTALLY stole this idea from the Fabulous Phyllis!
We went over to her house for a bit during Spring Break and she had all these cute bunnies on pedestals with Easter grass strewn about.
So I used a milk glass pedestal cake plate for one of the bunnies and a Martha Stewart jadeite small cake pedestal for another bunny (my one splurge from the old MS catalog).
She also has these FABULOUS crackle Easter egg lights (I always wanted to buy them from her, but she wasn't selling - can't say I blame her.)
And then I remembered I had these paper lights and while they weren't as fabulous as Phyllis's I thought they would be a good substitute.
I love it! It just makes me smile and appreciate my friend, Easter, spring, and bunnies! (Yes, all that in one little vignette. I'm easy that way.)
Thanks for buzzing by for a visit!
I'm always so delighted to see you've popped in!
P.S. Don't you think the Fabulous Phyllis should start her own blog? (I think we might just do that this summer!)
P.P.S. Linking up to Vintage Thingie Thursday
