pretty forgetmeknots from the garden and some terrific op shop finds

I found these great little vintage bottles at an op shop today.  I have ordered some lovely roses decals from Jo-anne Colletti, she paints beautiful roses on just about anything
Christie is another painter to check out at Chateau De Fleurs.
  Christie also paints beautiful roses
I can't wait to receive my decals so I can decorate the bottles and jars

They are so sweet, for-get-me-knots come up every year without fail,and I just think they are so pretty.  I use them in my embroidery designs whenever I embroider cottage gardens.

It was my lucky day.  I collect well everything really, but a lot of blue and white, so when I saw this jar today for $5 I just thought one more won't go astray (it's the one in the middle) when I got it home,I discovered it made a set teamed with my other two. 

  Another absolutely fab find.  We were taking some stuff to a local church shed sale, but you might know I bring back as much as I take.  I had to buy these pink glasses, 5 of them for $2.50 the lot, because I already have 6 the same, as well as 6 liquer one's.  They are French and very pretty  Lucky me.

When I visited this shed sale last time, I took a box of goodies. The next week while having a tidy up, I realised I had given them 3 blue and white saucers that matched cups and saucers I loved.  Needless to say I panicked and rushed back there to buy them back.  As usual lucky me, they were still there.

The for-get-me-nots look so delicate and pretty in that crystal vase and I like how you added the blue and white jar in the vignette... they look so lovely together. What a great deal on those pretty pink glasses... thanks for sharing with us. Stopping by from Fresh-Cut Friday. Have a great weekend!~Poppy

Oh, everything is so pretty but you stole my heart with the pink glasses! Love them! Would love to find some around here but the Island doesn't have a lot to offer in the way of great thrift finds.
