Hello and Welcome to my blog dear friends...Today we are sharing vintage or thrift store finds on our blogs for Etsy Cottage Style. So here we go. Bought this at one of my favorite thrift shops, of course it didn't look like this. I painted it pink, made of metal and it sits in our patio. Think I paid $1.00 for it.
This very pretty box also found at a different thrift shop and I gave it a little different look so it would fit here with my other things.
I love finding pretty plates, these I found quite some time ago but still love them. Recently found a couple of heart plates, which will share on another time.
Hope all of you are enjoying these first few days of our new year 2013 and looking forward to a beautiful year, I sure am.
Linking up with Beverly's Pink Saturday, link on side bar.
