Faded Roses and a Good Cause...

Today I went to a sale, for a good cause...

(click photos to enlarge)

A handful of pretty vintage goodies
will shake the winter blues right outta you...


I can never resist a creamer
even though I don't use cream.

They make lovely vases...


faded Spray Roses fill my new creamer perfectly...


I am crazy for crazing...


This little creamer is crazed to perfection...


I am sure I have enough crocheted linens,
though  I can never resist just one more...


a couple pretty serving pieces...


The sale was for a dear lady...
who's little store is always a pleasure to visit..

Sandy has breast cancer
 her friends have opened her store for a benefit,
to help her battle the expenses...

Sandy's Geranium Cottage
is loaded to the rafters
I never leave without a little something!

A treasure trove of vintage goodness!
 all 30% off

I too have a fondness for creamers, they make wonderful vases for small bouquets. Beautiful with the roses. Have a great weekend and take care, Jen.

Yes, nothing cheers me up better than poking around finding pretty stuff. AND LINENS! FORGET ABOUT IT!!! Your roses are so sweet in your new little creamer. I like the faded flowers on it. I don't have anything to sell you :o} Congrats on sailing right over the top!!

Precious little creamer! I love crocheted pieces also, have them all over my home. Got that "love" from my Granny I guess. Hope Sandy will come through will flying colors...surely all this support from her friends and customers is a huge encouragement and blessing to her!

Leslie said...

Bella,
Your pictures are always so inviting... Have a wonderful weekend!

High Heeled Life said...

Bella, what a fabulous idea .. When I see creamers I fall in love with them ..but I too do not use cream ..so I usually pass them up. But you have provided an excellent use for them. Your finds are wonderful .. if I lived close to there I would be making my way over that shop. Thoughts and prayers for that dear lady!! Blessings...xo HHL

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

Hi Bella :) That creamer is simply the sweetest, and of course, your blooms are just beautiful! Love the crochet (one can NEVER have too many crochet pieces) and the silver pieces!

Wishing you a lovely Pink Saturday sweet friend!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Roselle said...

Oh my goodness. Such lovliness! LOVE that creamer! I can't resist doilies either. I have a stash of them "just in case" in case of what I don't know! LOL I am too far away to visit that sweet store. Hope they do a ton of business!
Happy PS

I love reading stories like this, Bella. It is nice when we can shop, have a good time and contribute to a worthy cause. The pitcher, flowers, and crocheted linens are pretty, and I need to overcome the winter blues. This post helps!

Hi Bella
Some nice pieces although picked up under sad circumstances. The creamer is pretty and your signature roses make it that much prettier.
The fork is interesting - do you know what it is used for?

I agree that creamers make perfect little vases. And, who can't resist one more linen? Not me either!

Cathy said...

Hi Bella,

What a lovely post. I am also not one who can pass by a pretty pink floral creamer. I love to fill them with fresh pansies in the spring and put them all around the house.

And linens! Well, another weakness I don't want to admit.

A lovely Pink Saturday post.

xo Cathy

p.s. Prayers for Sandy
