Pretty and Pink

I love old stuff. I've been collecting things forever, it seems. But sometimes there's something new that takes my fancy.

When my daughter was living and working in the windy city, we took a trip up to St. Charles. It was a very sweet little town, with shops and a wonderful tea room that served an incredible lunch.

In one of the shops I found a little hanging vase.
It just looked so old fashioned, and of course it was pink :-) That was about six years ago.

So recently I was at my favorite local Hospice thrift store and spied this little vase .........

I love things that are pink and pretty. This little pink vase fits the bill!

Happy thriftin'

I am so happy I found your blog! We have several things in common. I also have a collection of teacups, and I collect dishes with roses. I'll be a regular reader.

I've recently found junk sales even more fun that when I was younger. My husband calls all yard sales "junk" sales but he loves them as much as I do.
