a budget was set and promptly kept to. surprised? i still am. it's time to share some of the treasures that the coast unearthed for me yesterday. one or two of them will be gifts, perhaps a couple for sale and then the rest, the johnson, are mine to love. i was reminded just how happy these pre-loved goodies make me whilst neck deep in floral fabrics and up to my eyeballs in retro crockery. thank you to the grandmas whose life long collections are now treasured by a very grateful, freckle faced, rainbow cake baking young lady (me, if you were wondering.) sharing the love over at sophie's too. get on it gorgeous people.
there was squealing involved.
high pitched screaming ensued when discovering this gorgeous johnson family.
my new florals.
more mismatched j-love.
a set of quaint english metal placemats. perfect.
just when you thought the j-love had ended....
the quirkiest johnson piece i've discovered. cheese and wine night anyone?
pretty turquoise pyrex, enough said.
another apron for the collection? hell yeah!
a beautiful bessemer platter.
a villeroy & boch beauty. i literally bowed to this one.
this still makes me smile. the perfect little tea and cake platter. 50c? you bet.
