Great Time In Iowa

I love these black and white plates with birds!
As you know by now I had a great time in Iowa! It happens to be one of my favorite shopping places! The shops there are fabulous, well not all of them, but I do have my favorites!
Sisters Garden and Bloom happen to be one of those! If you haven't been to her blog you must go visit and tell her I sent you! She plans to have a web site very soon. I hope you enjoy these pics, I have more but I have to save some for later.


Who can resist tons of pearls?

Mercury glass mushrooms with speckled eggs.

These flowers are new, but they looked old.

More bird eggs

You can't help but think of spring with
all the birds, eggs, feathers and nest!


Great flower holder

I can't believe my eyes. I have the coffee pot and sugar bowl of that same dish pattern. They were my grandmothers and my guess her mothers. Moselle right? Do you know the history of that pattern?

Theresa,
Now, I'm really jealous. I would love to shop "Iowa" and see the Pink Chateau.
I told My Vintage Heart to include that in our next buying trip.
We'll see. Anyways, love the pictures as always ~thank your for your inspiration.
Miss you~!
Headed over the Lakewood 400 to see your "buds" ~ March 21 - I'll tell them how great you are~! I'm sure they already know...
Fondly,
