I gathered them all up on my breakfast table in my Williams Sonoma Outlet bargain woven tray, sitting atop my burlap table square for some added texture.
The really fun part is that they are treasures from three different thrifting/antiquing outings with good friends so they will have good memories attached to them, too!
But I have to say that my favorite is my vintage lamb cake mold…discovered at an antique shop in the North Georgia mountains! I have been eyeing these for a while and finally decided that this one really needed to live at my house! I couldn’t wait until Easter to share him, although I am sure he will definitely make another appearance then!
He is guarding a little stack of vintage dessert molds that I found at a local antique fair in the spring…all ten of them for only $2.00! Woo hoo!
I found this antique quadruple silverplate sugar bowl at the same fair…also for $2.00. I just have a thing about quadruple silverplate, although it often loses its finish as this one has. However, when you find it, you know it is more than 100 years old since it was not made after 1900. I love the idea of all of that history!
And this one had something else that attracted me. Can you see it? The funny duck eating the handle! I knew this one had to be mine!
I have also added another vintage butter knife to my little collection. It’s the one with the grapey handle in the foreground…a twist handle Rogers Brothers silverplate in the Vintage pattern. I love the patina of old silverplate! That’s my little stack of lace doily dessert plates from Pier 1 beneath them.
Unfortunately, the single digit temperatures this past winter killed my poor hydrangea all the way back to the ground, so I had to resort to faux blooms to fill my little pitcher. I think they almost pass for real, though. And they came from Walmart at only $5.00…not bad considering that they are $13 at the craft stores!
I took them out so that you could see my pitcher. There’s a curious kitty hanging on the rim and peeking in! I love it!
I added my little white hen and rooster shakers, a sweet gift from Babs at Upstairs Downstairs, for another touch of white and to add a little interest outside of the tray. They are at home in all of my vintage-y, frenchy centerpieces!
I really like the contrast of the textures and the combination of the soft blues and creamy whites with the patina of the vintage metals! It just makes me happy when I look at it!
Miss Isabella says she doesn’t know what the big deal is about all of this old stuff. Her favorite thing is her little green froggy toy…to match her green eyes! I think that color is perfect for her!
