Your milkglass collection is really expanding nicely, Linda. I a-dore the moss Easter basket you are going to recreate. I'm so glad I get to join you for NTT this week! Hugs, Kim

Vivienne @ the V Spot said...

You're going to post how the basket turns out, right...?

Lakota [Faith Hope and Charity Shopping] said...

Wow I can't believe what bargains all your finds were this week. I'd love to find a tray like that, and that milkglass and ironstone stuff is gorgeous. We don't have Pottery Barn in the UK but I've heard a few people talking about moss baskets - now I understand!

Tammy said...

You sure did find some fabulous deals....Love those vases and flowers always seem to give it a whole new look. The apron is so pretty too...I will be adding a thrifty find makeover to the party as soon as I am finished doing it.

Love all your ironstone! You always find the best stuff! I've also been working on a PB knockoff moss basket. I had some leftover moss from my moss wreath that I linked up, and thought, "Why not?" It's going on my spring mantel. Thanks for sharing and for hosting this terrific giveaway.

Great Giveaway! I went on over, and 'liked' her! ;)

Also, I don't know if you want separate comments, but I just may put that 3-quarter Purple Ruffle Dress on my birthday wish list. I saw a few versions of that dress, I'm not sure which color I like best! ;)

I'm a follower, too!

Kristy Carberry said...

Very pretty! You need to come down to a little town called Sasser, Ga. I have literally found milk glass bud vases there for ONE PENNY! They have an area where they put random things for a penny. I am always excited to see what's there.

My blog is all about recommending books to real people (not just English Majors) and I'd love to hear what you think about it! My latest post really fit with your theme: we came home with a huge box of books from the library sale for only $30! :) www.turkeylists.blogspot.com

Hi Linda,
There is something so charming about vintage aprons...love them. I have the same Johnson Brothers ironstone dinnerware...my mother gave me her whole set...enjoyed seeing your pieces. And the Pottery Barn knock-off is great...I love copying ideas from their catalogue on the cheap...kind of an on-going challenge for us DIY types. Love your blog!
