The End of the Season...

September is the month garage sales
tend to dry up,
or more accurately
here in Seattle the month they
get rained out...
 
I thought I'd share my last few finds of the season...
 

can you have too many floral creamers?
never!
 

 
the nubby tablecloth underneath
 is also a new find...
 
I am keeping it stored away
 like my chunky sweaters,
not quite ready to give into the chill of fall,
 yet...
 

I have been looking for stemware,
and found very little...
 
these little juice glasses,
with their simple lines,
and floral etching,
made my day...
 

 
simple and sweet...
 

when the sales dried up,
I couldn't resist hitting a couple shops...
 
I was very excited to find a couple pitchers...
 
I have been coveting Jacqueline's pitchers
for a long time wanting
one of my own...
 
If you don't know my friend Jacqueline's blog
then you really should!
She shares the most amazing collections,
and she will soon
have you coveting something too....
 



I always love the marks,
like little stamps on postcards,
for far away places...
 

 

the pitchers
will make great stand alone pieces...
 
but for now,
while I still can,
I plan to stuff them full of roses...
 


 
Tonight I am joining...
and
 
Thanks for stopping by today....

Well, no. My ears were NOT burning... It's not right with all my pitchers that I should envy yours, but that is how obsession works! You found some beauties! Not easy to find around here. And still getting fabulous roses I see. So fabulously beautiful together. Love your frilly table. Thanks for the happy surprise of being mentioned in your pretty post!!! xx

Hello Bella. I love your new pitchers! They are a favourite find of mine too. Your roses are stunning. Such a pretty pink. We are enjoying beautiful weather this week just before fall hits and we are hopeful it will continue for another month. Blessings, Pamela

The new pitchers are lovely and a good container for your pretty roses.
The juice glasses look like cornflower, also sweet lined up with the roses in them.

Your roses are BEAUTIFUL. You make the most lovely display of them too. My roses all got a disease this season so we did not have many blooms.

Such lovely finds, Bella! And so beautiful displayed. Your roses are so wonderful, and you're so lucky to have such bounty so late in the summer. I collect small creamers, too, and can never say no when I see a new one at a yard sale or thrift shop. And pitchers can be used in so many lovey ways... lemonade, paint brushes, and yes, roses! Enjoy your Autumn days ahead.

What a dreamy post, Bella. I love your little creamers and pitchers; so pretty. Your roses are scrumptious and look beautiful tucked into the little creamer. Thanks for this little treat. Blessings, Sandi
