I’m too chicken to drive whenever it’s snowing, or if there is snow/ice on the roads. I haven’t been antique shopping since before December. So when we had a little break with clear roads this weekend I was outta here! I drove to all my favorite antique spots and to the local green spot to get some springy plants to scatter around our house for some much needed cheering up. Enough of this cold snowy winter I tell ya!!
This cheery pot of daffodils became the center of the spring table arrangement in my big dough bowl. I added some moss balls, eggs, and cabbage heads.
I found many new ironstone pieces at really good prices while I was out. Here is one of the little servers on the plate rail. I threw in some faux sprigs in the mercury glass vase.
On the other side, I placed a couple clock faces. One I found at an antique store, and the big one was from Hobby Lobby. I took it out of it’s frame and used the frame in the dry sink. Guess how much it was? 7 dollars. STEAL!!! =) I also found this sweet milk-glass vase at antique and filled it with a real rosemary plant. The little chalkboard sticker came from Michael’s dollar bin.
I bought a few clay pots and white washed them and used the little chalkboard stickers on them. Here is one on the dry sink. I can’t remember what kind of plant this is. Hope I don’t kill it! LOL
The rest of the dry sink has a frame I found in the basement, and the clock face frame with a mossy wreath, bunny and faux flower arrangement.
My next plant went into an enamel Tea can. The ironstone platter was another find on Saturday.
The hutch always looks pretty much the same I just tried to spring it up a little.
And my very favorite thing I bought? This framed sheep print I’ve had my eye on for over a year. Every time I visit the antique store where it came from I always stare at it and long to buy it. I could never make myself spend the money they were asking for it because of the condition it’s in. But I finally bit the bullet and I am so glad I did. I love it, even in it’s tattered state. It’s perfect for spring.
Lastly I hung up my new quilt I made for our sew along.
I’ll be back with the rest of the spring decorating and the other fun things I picked up on my shopping spree!
Crossing my fingers for spring to get here!!
