Easter's on it's Way

I found these adorable little vintage cookie cutters in the original box.  

I loved the box and would of been happy even if the box was empty but when I opened it was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn't.

This bunny is and oldie but a goodie.  He's turned a rusty brown.  I don't think I would use him to cut out cookies any more but I love him anyway.

The apron is made from old feedsack cloth.  I recently found that too in my thrifting adventures.  Millie was so inspired and insisted on modeling it for you after she saw some of her friends wearing their finest on Holly's blog.

Easter Bunny Display

I found this green display in my neighbor's trash.  You know me, I can't stand to let something good go to waste (especially when it's free) - so it came home with me.

I think it makes a great display for the bunnies and little Easter collectibles.

Yes, they are quite happy here I think.

Pyrex in Pink and Blue

Two of my favorite things to find while junking - vintage linens and pyrex.  

I did the happy dance when I saw these because they are two of my most favorite patterns and in Easter egg colors too.

I can't resist the pink melmac divided bowl either so in the cart it went.

I also found this orange cutie.  

Do you suppose food being served in cute dishes makes it taste any better?

Hello Spring

I love it when the daffodils spring up and say hello.  They are among the first of the spring flowers to say hello and I think they are so pretty.

I found these spelling boards and although they have been fun to play around with, they need a few more letters to be able to spell some words correctly but you get the idea.

Hope you have a "beautiful" day!

Is it spring yet in your neck of the woods?

In Beautiful Light

I have been taking an online mixed media painting course and I am loving it.  I have never done any painting before but have really been enjoying the process.  Serendipity for me today was spying an actual butterfly as I was stepping outside to snap this photo.  I was enjoying watching the butterfly float through the air so much that I totally missed the opportunity to take it's photograph.  Sometimes that happens.  I would rather savor the actual experience than capture it forever through the lens.

May beautiful light shine upon you my friends.

More Than Words

I love finding old games.  I adore the vintage colors and graphics and it's fun playing with them too.

A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.  Wouldn't you agree?
