I'm a total sucker for a linen suitcase...doesn't matter what kind of shape they are in, they're just one of my favorite things. So when I spotted this for $4.50 it didn't matter that it was worn and tattered, it was coming home with me. The gorgeous gray satin on the inside was in much better shape than the outside. And that it still had the key was amazing.
I collect these old trays with fruit designs, and this one had an odd texture as it felt like it was leather on metal. I love the deep rich Old World Style and colors. They all come out for Fall decor, which I think everyone knows by now is my favorite time of the year. (I'm already plotting ideas)
Anyone who has booth space, especially in a big mall, knows how frustrating it can be if each week you find lots of items that don't belong to you. I'm on a corner intersection at Relics, so it seems that if someone changes their mind about an item, they conveniently drop it off here. I know none of us have ever done this...
But look what landed in my space last week... I took one look at it and sort of felt it was divine "happenstance". A little blessing in the shape of a nature book. Of course I bought it and will enjoy the short stories of life on Cape Cod.
See the title?
This little berry basket that I also found at Spring Creek
will be holding Black-Eyed-Susans soon.
Let's see, I also found new drapery panels for the Master Bedroom and a new pillow to match, I was going to share those, but my hubby was napping when I needed to take the pics, so they can wait.
Hope you're having a great weekend, it's pretty quiet around here. I actually floated around the pool on a raft for a couple of hours yesterday...ahhhhh. Yes, I love summer too!
