Little Summery Finds








My bouquet of lovely peonies are close to the end. They have lasted longer than I expected in our summer heat.








A little spray of garden roses keeps them company in the dining room. They are propped in a little old pressed glass pitcher that I found for a dollar. And yesterday I found a sweet little embossed plate at Carol V.'s spot at the Antique Co-op in Albuquerque. It set me back three dollars. I love its subtle charm.




I have never seen this mark before so I believe it's quite old.




I'm also featuring a new vintage fifties print tablecloth that I recently found at a thrift store for four dollars. It's in perfect condition. 




And what a lovely pairing for summer!












Lacy white linens seem made for this time of year. So clean and bright. I enjoy seeing them just displayed in piles ready for anything.














And I'm loving these colors that seem barely there. . . .







Especially in the stripe of the tablecloth.









 





I hope you're finding a few cheery things to launch the new season too!

Happy summer hunting, 

Jacqueline

Such charming finds at such great prices! Peonies are so beautiful and the scent is just heaven. Mine have been done for about 2 weeks..too short they are here!

Jacqueline, I so envy you your peonies! AND that gorgeous little plate. I need to go shopping with you, you seem to have the knack of finding great "finds."

My peonies are all gone because the rains always break them down, I did pick a huge bouquet before our last rain storm
Your vintage $4 tablecloth was a very good find and looks perfect with your arrangement

Hi J,
you are still busy making the good finds! Beautiful new tablecloth, the sales here are a dud this year...
The Peonies are gorgeous, and the garden spray so tender and sweet.
Piles of linens on the ready, perfect, I am lusting over that ruffled napkin on top:-)
Thanks for a cheery start to my day :-)

Hi Jacqueline, your bouquet of peonies is gorgeous and the roses are darling. I love the tablecloth and the lace too.
This year I bought a peony plant, which produced two blooms. I hope to have more next year.

Have a great day!

Your beautiful peonies in white remind me I have a new white pitcher just the right size for mine -- all I have to do is make sure I'm not bringing in the greater population of ants in my neighborhood! As always, it is simply lovely!

I brought home 3 bouquets of pink peonies yesterday. They are exquisite! Do you grow your own?
Lovely new finds. I came home with a few special finds from local GW yesterday. ;-)
Thanks for your thoughtful note. The summer heat isn't bad yet. It's still rather pleasant here.

Hi Jacqueline, you found some lovely items. The tablecloth is so pretty.
Your peonies are still very pretty as they near their end. I am trying to grow them here, but so far no luck.
Have a nice weekend.

Such beautiful vintage finds, Jacqueline. I always say that a crocheted edging is a crowning glory. That goes for lace, too. I especially like the vintage table cloth...love the color and design.

Jacqueline, I love peonies and wish we could grow them here. How sad that yours have come to an end, but at least you'll have roses throughout summer. Great finds this week.
