A few finds and a slip-tease...

I know...
a little play on words...
but I just couldn't help myself.


an ecru linen crocheted edge table runner...
(so yummy I want to wear it!)





three diminutive bottles from my visit to Leola's...
(they will be used to root some ivy starts)

and a brown transferware platter...

(my favorite  $2.50 find with a few little imperfections,
but then we all have those little flaws)












and look...what's this?


see those mysterious "girly" curves clad in linen?


yes, my darlings have arrived...


sweet and ruffly
all tied with a ribbon...

(just had to give you a little tease)

I'll be joining in for 

Thrifty Finds at Southern Hospitality 
Tuesdays Treasures at My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia
Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life
Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm

See you tomorrow for:

  2. Love your finds and only $2.50 for that platter. I would have ran out with that, too. The chip just adds charm.

  3. Love the tatting on the runner. My grandmother use to tat and it brings back old memories.

  4. Very sweet finds and Joe and I embrace imperfection daily here at this old house in many forms-the internet is so slow I read the paper, write a comment, and so on.

    Beautiful. The transferware platter is special, the linens lovely. The bottles, darling. Stick a little flower in each of the bottles.

  23. Oh my, I love your finds, and who could resist brown transferware??? I love the slips and the tablerunner, in fact, I am perusing eBay as we speak, looking for some pretty white pillowcases with the hand crocheted edges like your tablecloth.
