Random Stuff

With the rose bushes exploding in fragrant blooms...
it was time to bring some inside to enjoy.

Here are a few fun finds I found at the thrift store the other day.
This brown and white toile container will look great in the kitchen.
I found three of these red transferware plates by Johnson Brothers for .50 cents each.
This lovely rose covered plate was also .50 cents.
Thanks for sharing in my random post:).
Have a wonderful weekend!

Scenes from the Shop

With the sun shining and the flowers blooming it's a great day to go downtown to a great little antiques store with a coffee bar.
This looks like a good place to park.
The old iron fence leads to the entrance gate.
Sun rays peek through the China rose bush out front.
This bush originated from a 150+ year old rose bush from the Sams Plantation.
The roses smell as beautiful as they look:).
Even this bee is enjoying the fragrant petals.
Bold blue skies illuminate the massive historic structure.
Palm trees abound in the surrounding yard.
Let's go inside.
Ruby red glass stands out against a backdrop of roses in the distance.
Vintage buttons and blue and white china beckon shoppers to linger...
while cobalt blue glass sparkles in the sun light.
Old linens compliment vintage china. Hmmm...I smell freshly brewed coffee. Care to join me for a cup?

Garden Stroll

Hello, are you ready for a stroll along the garden path?
It's a lovely spring day.
The sounds of water trickling in the fountain permeates the garden.
The bees are busy.
Gerber daisies add splashes of vibrant color.
Water puddles in this azalea bloom.
Their wavy petals add frills to the garden.
Nature's bouquet of springtime bliss.
Palm fronds in the distance create a backdrop for the speckled azalea blooms.
This lovely lady greets all who walk along the garden path.
Lavender scents the air.
A feeder welcomes hungry birds.
Hmmm...this feeder looks a bit empty. I wonder why as it was just filled.
I think I see the guilty culprit.
Look at him saying 'who me?' like it isn't obvious!
Delicate flowers add color to the garden shed window boxes
Thanks so much for strolling in the garden with me.
I think we should go inside for a glass of wine and take a look at the new Victorian Trading catalog that arrived in the mail today:).
