A Place To Gather......

                    Morning.....well its that time of year again.....
                 when meals are no longer served outside....
                   and the dining room becomes a gathering place once again.....
                     so it seemed like the perfect time to do some tweeking.....
                   to make sure everyone feels welcome.....thanks so much for coming by! x0x0

Change of season.....

                                                 Does anything say fall better than a huge bouquet of hydrangeas.....
                                                   with shades of pink & green....
                                              they just add that little punch of colour....
                                              that is oh so hard to resist ! Where has September gone....
                            I hope you are able to enjoy the last few days of this glorious month...till next time...x0x0

A Most Unexpected Find...

                                       Happy Sunday everyone.....what a lovely day it is....
                                      did not plan to post today but could not wait to show you what I found...
                                         this awesome little french crate....as soon as I saw it I knew it was coming home with me....funny thing is I found it in a local specialty food shop....and it was not expensive at all !!!! 

                                      I love how it looks on the island....with my vintage dish rack....oh one more thing...my tag sale was a big hit...had no idea what to expect but at the end of the day I had very few things left and had made more money than I thought possible...may become a yearly event !  Enjoy your day and thank you so much for making my blog part of it! x0x0 Chrissy

Vintage Pharmacy Lamp.....

                                      Good morning! Wanted to show you what I found at Christie's Antique Sale on Sat. what an amazing day it was!!!!!  O.k ready???  First thing I spotted was this old pharmacy lamp ....in working order..he wanted $50 for it but after a bit of "chat & blather" and I must confess eyebatting I got it for.........$35......WHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE....I am off to a good start...
                                         then came the stack of envelopes for $10( each with letters in them)...then the old french clock...how cute is it!?!?!
                                          Next up my lovely enamel #12 sign....my heart was pounding a mile a minute when I saw it....no break on the price on this baby but I didn't plan on leaving without it..
                                           Oh and earlier in the week I made a trade at Antique Avenue for this beautiful old seltzer bottle,I have always wanted one of these and this one is stunning...
v
                      The only thing I got that is not in this vignette is an old wire tray.....still have to find a home for it....                     
                       what a great week it was for finding things I thought I would never come across....hope you have a wonderful week .....I am having a huge Tag Sale here on Sat...wish me luck!!! x0x0
