Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

More Vintage Treasures

I found these items on Monday, when Gail from my MaryJanes Farmgirl chapter and a friend of hers joined me for coffee & some thrift shopping before we enjoyed a nice late lunch at Nibbly's Cafe here in Klamath Falls. we had a great time and will be doing more of these day outtings again.
I found this vintage metal canister & breadbox combo, I am going to use as a storage drawers for my garden seeds or may use it to store my sewing notions in, or maybe repaint it and use it on my desk to organize "desk stuff". It will remain in the craft room until I decide..Thats what is nice about this kind of treasure, I can decide later where & what I want to display or put it to use for.
I love the old green wind up alarm clock, I just had to have it. That will go onthe wicker table in my guestroom. The enamel ware soap dish & water cup is not old but will fit in nicely in my bathroom. I bought some lavendar soap to display with it to match the other lavender & blue tones in my bathroom. The soap smells so nice & fresh.
I have placed a hyacinth plant from my kitchen counter in there too and as you can see it is blooming beautifully. I am waiting for 10 more paperwhite bulbs to bloom so they can sit in the window over the garden tub together.
At least it will feel kind of like spring while the snow melts.
