First I have to say that I have come to understand that it’s OK to leave some of the wonderful things that I find for someone else to enjoy. But there are some things that just insist on coming home with me. Baby Kitty is giving you a hint already…
…and if you guessed the vintage French books (at $13 for the pair) and the art nouveau vase (at only $10), you would be right! They were just calling my name!
And here they are looking quite at home with the Plate Addicts! And I must add that they have a heaviness and feel of importance that I love!
I filled the vase with some of my yellow knockout roses…my new favorites! They are blooming profusely right now and, unlike the other varieties, they have a fabulous fragrance that is filling my house! Only one problem…the roses hide those fabulous art nouveau handles!
The two volume vintage set of French books…La France: Géographie, Tourisme from Larousse is not only pretty, but has been a lot of fun! They are filled with old maps and tons of vintage black and white photos from the early 1950s.
I am drawn to the farm animals…especially the cows! I think it is because our neighbors had cows when I was a little girl and my sister and I used to feed them grass and pet them.
And there you have them…my Goodwill hunting trophies from my most recent thrifting expedition! I hope you enjoyed having a little peek inside my "new" vintage books. I only wish you could smell the roses!
