Green Day

I have been photographing items for the shop this weekend and noticed this wonderful grouping of 1950's greens and aquas emerging.
My daughter Ky was here for supper last night and grabbed these turquoise Franciscan Pottery (California) plates for her new place.  These have the most amazing glaze and look like the clay was folded and ruffled around the edges...they are really gorgeous.
The McCoy pots have wonderful colors too...
An entire collection of McCoy Pottery
Hanson Nursery Scales.  These ones came from Stedmans Chemists in Chicago.
We also have these in pink.

This dresser is my favourite.  I believe it to be Eastern European or possibly from Quebec.  The color is stunning and so is the hardware.  This one is calling me...

The hardest thing about setting up shop is letting it go. Both Lorraine and I love flea marketing, I particularly love the dishware and linens, and Lorraine and her husband love the Salvage finds. There will be certain bits I can't part with, but I know for the most part, this is now our business and it has to go..........


  1. I'm so drawn to this color lately - it's beautiful all grouped together. I don't have much color in my home but this is one color I could do!

  2. Gorgeous. I especially love the bread box and that dresser...oh that dresser has the best color!

  3. I love all of these wonderful items, but that dresser is calling to me too, I love the color!

  4. Good Morning Charnia....!

    These colours are GORGEOUS....!! It's hard isn't it finding divine Treasures & not being able to keep them....?!

    I'd love to have a Bed & Breakfast that I could fill up with all manner of YUMMY pieces & people who stayed there could buy something to remind them of their relaxing stay....This way perhaps, I'd get to hold onto things a bit longer & the inside of my office wouldn't look so.....cluttered (read SCARY)...hahahaha...!

    I'm off to visit your Etsy shop....!

    Cheers for now,
    Tamarah :o)

  5. I love the colour of these gorgeous finds Chania!! And yes like everyone else, that dresser is calling my name (pity it is too big to post!!). Gorgeous finds and I love the plates your daughter took home, so lovely! Have fun planning for your shop:) ~ Tina xx

  6. The dresser is gorgeous and I love the scales as well. So wonderful and so many ideas on where I could use them! xx


I love to read each and every comment and are thrilled that you take the time to send one. Thank you so much. Chania
