A Few Finds from Virginia...





  Sweet Mya from Elbows on My Windowsill 
said she hoped I would show some of the items that
followed me home from my visit in Virginia and I'm happy to share.

. But first let me say that if you haven't visited Mya's blog click on that link above.  You are in for a delight.  Mya posts some really interesting things...go see what I mean !

If you read my "Where Women Create" post you would see in the photos that I have a bit of silverplate and have been collecting it for some time.  I  have some plans for it and hope to be starting on it soon.
Sooo when I found this pitcher and the footed tray...well they had to come home with me. They are Georgia Silver now  :))





Then I saw this amethyst sandwich tray ... oh me. I looove purple, any shade so this definitely was coming home with me.  It's a keeper.





In one little shop I found these snack trays and cups...eight of them!  I also found several other teacups and a few other bits and bobs.





Loook at this sweet pink bird and rose....gonna have to create a little sumpin' with these babies.






                               
  This is one of my favorite finds... the bottle embossed "E D Pinaud Paris. It's a beautiful shade of amethyst too.  It will probable end up in the "Oooh La La " category at the Scented Cottage Studio web site.  I think I'll add some ribbon and a fleur de lis charm to the neck. 
I love everything I found on my trip and there are one or two things I wish I had bought and didn't.  Funny how I rarely regret something I have bought but often those I didn't ! 

Thank you for visiting me and thanks for your comments, I really appreciate them.  Ya'll come back now!   (())

All are great, but those two amethyst pieces, the plate and the bottle, are my favorites.

I don't think I've ever seen an old bottle of that hue!

Oh my, what can I say - that was quite a surprise, Debbie. Very sweet of you - thanks.

Thank you also for posting photos of your Virginia prizes. I will be looking at your other blog to see how you decide to use them - the ones you do not decide to keep.

On the 31st, Lynn said Happy Birthday. Is the 31st the actual date or near the date. Well regardless, I hope it was, or is, or will be one of your happiest.
