In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Horton's of Tipton

 On Saturday, Horton's of Tipton had a Spring Open House and my friend, Teresa, and I went.  I love the aqua furniture in the window display.
 She had visions of spring everywhere.
  If I come across some eggs while looking for Easter decorations,I believe I'll make some of these little nests.
 I thought these forks with corks would be a good idea to mark food...such as different types of cheeses on a platter.  You could also use them for name place 'cards' at the holiday table.
 And can't you see this set-up if you had a booth somewhere that you sold stuff in.
 And this umbrella covered in doilies! Love Love Love!  And all of the cute little faux' lettuce, and carrots, and peas...adorbs I tell ya.
  Cute gift idea...shelf sitter.
She has a knack for taking everyday items and making them look great in a....ooooh....what's the word.....when you have a grouping of something........not an ensemble.....Anyway, you know what I mean.  And by the way, love that red suitcase!
 THIS reminded me that I have something similar but I don't think I have enough wall space for it in my kitchen.  Boohoo!
 She had tea cups hanging in windows hanging by ribbons, as well as blue ball jars, and other such fun items.  I thought about doing that for my kitchen curtains since I can't seem to find any that I like.
 And then there was the pansies.....oooooh the pansies....and some stock and snapdragons too!
 There were things about Horton's that I never noticed before, like this moss covered wall!  There are usually vendors set up in front of it while I'm visiting.  Or it's too cold to be outside.  But Saturday was a beautiful day.

 Teresa and I split a flat of flowers....
 Don't they look gorgeous together.

 After Horton's, we happened to go by a store around the corner that had unusual items for sale, old and repurposed alike.  I didn't buy anything there, but then we went to a church that was having a few crafty things and other home party type things for sale.  I did buy a short-jacket type top  that I might wear for Easter, depending on the weather....and then....we went to Goodwill.

I had to buy this old-fashioned bag.  It looks kind of like a carpetbag.  I went to a Downton Abbey party a couple of weeks ago with my sister, and this purse would have been perfect!
 Look inside....It's divided.  I've never seen anything like it.
 And it's hard to see but I bought this huge milk glass punch bowl.  I have a collection of milk glass stuff that I've bought over the years of going to garage sales.  If I put it all together, I'd probably have quite a set!  I'll put that on my list!
I always come home motivated to decorate when I go to Horton's.  Their French Flea Market is in July.  You should make plans to go.

Don't forget to check out our kitchen if you haven't done so already.  I'm so excited about it!
