pretties

It's Monday, so that means it's time to curl up in your favorite chair, grab a second cup of     tea or coffee, and shop on Etsy. If the weather is as warm at your house as it is at mine,  you might want to break out that porch chair and browse outside with your laptop. I found  some real pretties this week. My favorites list is really growing.


these are definitely at the top of my list. 


six french white enamel canisters


I love handmade baskets, and these are beautiful in their simplicity.


large bean pot basket with handle


peonies are one of my favorite flowers, and this is one you can keep year round.


white peony hand stitched and painted fabric art.


perfect for a rustic farmhouse style garden


rustic barbed wire heart wreath


nothing lovelier than pretty botanical prints. especially when framed in a beautiful handmade frame.


1850s botanical print framed with reclaimed wood


I had a dress almost identical to this back in the day. Love it.


lace crochet dress 1960s


and just in case you are planning a picnic or a day at the beach, this is certainly a pretty take-along.

well, I am off to see the surgeon this morning. I'll bring you up to date tomorrow..

  3. We had gorgeous weather on Sunday. I did pull out a couple of my porch chairs. I can't wait to sit out there with my laptop. Love the canisters! I just bought a "lace" dress, although not vintage. Guess lace is big again! Hope all is well with you! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Love those metal canisters! It's all snowy here, but hopefully melting. I'm completely jealous of those sitting outside right now.

  9. Laura,
    I could get lost on Etsy! So many fabulous things, so little money!!

    Those enamel canisters need to come home with me - seriously!

    I opened a shop the other day - selling my stamped vintage silverware. We'll see how it goes - it's kind of on the down low - just testing the waters.

    Have a fab day!
