|I'm not at all sure why I've become obsessed with ballet toe shoes lately. It could have something to do with my new Vintage by Nina book (although her shoes aren't embellished).|
Isn't it pretty hanging in my lilac bush?
|They're just such a pretty blank canvas to work with...and I have lots of laces and bits of fabric to use on them.|
|This one has some vintage velvet berries and leaves on it's toe.....|
|This will be listed this evening in my shop.|
So cute to tuck a sachet into and hang in a special spot.

|Headed out by myself to the flea today.|
Found some great pretties and great deals.
This doll is stunning in person, 16" tall and filled with sawdust.
I love her dress....well, I love everything about her.
|Sweetest old Avon dusting powder tin (puff is inside).|
|Gorgeous little Bible missing it's clasp.|
|Darling child's book.|
|Cutest box filled with the cutest blocks (and they're all there).|

|I'm ever so glad we went!!!! Up in one of the bedroom closets they were sitting, as pretty as can be.|
|The one pillow has darkened quite a bit, any suggestions on cleaning it? The other one quite possibly was never used.|
Seriously clean and bright.

|So I ordered this book after about 2 weeks of going back and forth....it's hard to find and it's $$$$$++++!!!!!|
|But so worth it. This woman is a stylist extraordinaire~seriously. She's. Very. Good.|
|And yet more....|
|There is not a page that disappoints....|

|Sorry my photos aren't great but we just had a bad hail storm so there was no way of taking them outside.|
Anyway, I turned around and saw the trunk itself, it was stuffed with old blankets.
|I was astounded at the inside condition of this trunk, hardly any tears to this gorgeous paper.....how did that happen?|
|I looked at the price, it had 2 different prices on it. One said 79.99 and that was covered with one that said 49.99. And since that tag was yellow, and yellow tags were 25% off today, I got it for 37.49.......oh happy day!!!!!!|
|Even the paper lining the tray is pretty. It reminds me of a trunk that may have been found in a farmhouse attic filled with pretty things.......|

|Plants that is.....our cherry tree....pure love.|
|Lilac about to burst, can't wait.|
|A very sweet smelling viburnum that surrounds our back patio.|
|Daphne (my personal favorite)|
These are a few of my favorite, of course some others are a bit away from blooming, such as roses and peonies.
I love this time of year and seeing all the new life....and the smells!
I hope the weather is beautiful wherever you are.
