SILVER AND ROSES

 Last weekend we went to a great estate sale -- that is, the antiques were great; just not the prices.  The stuff was all probably worth the asking price, but were not in our range at all.
The only thing I bought was this little 5" silver vase.  I found it out in one of the sheds with junk -- that is probably why it was marked $4.  I wanted to pay $2, but prices were firm!
I love the Greek key design and the 'loving cup' handles; and thought it will be handy to use for little bunches of posies from the garden this summer.
 Our rose bushes are covered with buds and just beginning to bloom; which is about a month early for our region of the country.    
Cold weather is in the forecast for tomorrow -- hope they don't get frostbitten!

Check out the following blog parties this week for lots of summer inspiration.
Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures Monday
Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesday
A Stroll Thru Life for Table Top Tuesday
From My Front Porch to Yours for Treasure Hunt Thursday
White Ironstone Cottage for Treasure Chest Friday
French Country Cottage for Feathered Nest Friday

Oh I love your little pitcher, the style is stunning. Great detail in the greek key and the swirly handles. Perfect with your roses and your lovely vignette. I think it was a super find for $4. Thanks tons for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

Hi Sally! Oh, that's a pretty silver vase! I know what you mean about prices at garage sales - everything seems to cost more.
Love your beautiful flowers too!
Have a wonderful Sunday and you are a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Pretty little pitcher Sally- just perfect for roses!!

I am so surprised with all the plants in bloom already! Not at all ready with my garden. Bill went out and spaded up 1/2 of it as I need to get my plants in that I have in my little greenhouse.

I am leaving for a week on Mother's day to help a friend in NM with a wedding. I get back on Sunday then a blogging friend and hubby will be coming for 3 days the next day. I am not at all sure that I will have everything ready for company when I leave!

We also have another blogging friend who is moving to Co Springs here with her hubby this Wednesday night- better get a move on!

What a sweet little pitcher. You should be able to use it often.

It is beautiful and I would have paid four at an estate sale. They are always a little high.

That is so pretty with flowers in it! I love this vignette with it on top of your books. I think it will display your flowers beautifully for every season.
