Blue Ball Jars & Cheery Cottage Style




I found this sweet little Limoges plate this morning when I went to check on my booth. You could either look at finding something irresistible like this as an occupational hazard of  being in a vintage mall space, or you could see it as a great way to get paid! At any rate, it was it a pretty small price to pay.




I make other stops along the way in order to save on gasoline (really), and sometimes get even more of a payoff like I did today with a cheery matching Laura Ashley pillow and quilt at a good price. They coordinate beautifully with my Rachel Ashwell boudoir pillow don't you think?


















The cover and pillow were bundled together, and I thought the reversible quilt might be a twin. But it turned out to be huge, and might even work as a coverlet on a king sized bed! Everything coming up roses!



















Believe it or not, I'm fairly selective about the linens I pick up these days. I'm influenced by price and condition, of course, but also by rarity and unique charm. This wonderful heavy cotton laundry bag made the cut!








Darn cute!









Finally, I also managed to find the reproduction blue Ball jars I went looking for at Lowes! Such a pretty color! Like little blue jewels!













What a cheery vintage start to the week!
I hope yours is off to a great start too!
Thanks so much for stopping by!

  7. Always so soft and pretty! Even the china. I turned down the jars when I saw them for sale - I am so use to the old shade of blue - maybe they will 'grow' on me.

  11. I have some of the original blue Ball sealer jars. It's great that the company has reintroduced these gems as they are such a pretty shade of blue. Great for gift giving and wee collections of shells etc.. Lovely visual feast in your post again today...have you ever considered doing a coffee table type of book?

  13. Pretty, pretty. I got some of these jars to put in my kitchen but I haven't decided just what to do with them. Maybe you will do a post to inspire me.

  15. I, too, have fallen in love those vintage blue Ball jars! That color is delicious! You did make some fantastic purchases.. I'm impressed. I love your passion for roses with that yummy soft pink found in so many things... the comforter, the dishes and the linens! Charming!

  17. My favorite is the little striped bag - the cloth looks so soft and faded perfectly.

    I bought the blue Ball jars at Target and found the cutest lids with a daisy cut out on Etsy. I drink my iced tea in one every day with a cute little straw.

  20. Gorgeous finds! I worked in an antique store for years and I actually had a drawer with my name on it behind the counter where treasures I had on layaway went. My paycheques went to good use - I consider it an investment :)

  23. That quilt and pillow are a wonderful find, Jacqueline, and go so well with the other pillow. I'm glad you were able to find the wonderful Blue Ball jars! A friend gave me one as a gift this summer.... it looks so pretty in the sunlight on the verandah.
