A Little Virtual Shopping Spree

It's been a while since I took you antiquing with me! My favorite place for finding antiques and interiors is always the Queen of Hearts in Alphahretta, Georgia. My house is filled to the brim with my daughter and her family there now but I can always do some window shopping! How about you? So get out your virtual money and let's head out!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeAnd it's been a while since I've seen one of these and this is a pretty one at a reasonable price...only $10! Do you know what it is? It's a fancy pants bread box!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeI love the way cow paintings are becoming all the rage along with farmhouse style! This one is unusual with its subtle colors and really speaks to me. It reminds me of the cows on a French friend's farm...complete with bells from Switzerland!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeIsn't this a wonderful old chest? I love the color and the unusual shape!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeI must be having a gray day because I love this cake plate, too! Do you recognize those little embellishments? They're acorns!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeAnd here it is in an antiqued white in another booth. I'm not sure which one I like best but I do love the pops of aqua surrounding it!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeAnd I especially love these two pieces in aqua...starring those fabulous curly handles!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeI had to stop and study all the aqua accents in this booth...lovely!

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeNow here's something I really love and even considered collecting at one time...a finger vase!

You know I love this one in blue and white!

But I already have one at home. Here it is filled with knockout roses. Hmmm...they are in full bloom now. I need to get out my finger vase again! You can see more of it plus a fabulous 100 year old frenchy find HERE.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeHere's another favorite that I spotted...a Red Cliff ironstone sugar bowl.

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping SpreeEaster is over but spring is in full force so I found myself looking at bunnies...on pillows...

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping Spree...on molds...

CONFESSIONS OF A PLATE ADDICT A Little Virtual Shopping Spree...and on plates! Gotta love bunnies no matter the season!

  1. I love these virtual shopping trips! I too am buying less but looking is always fun. I love the finger vases! The lovely turquoise is everywhere and such a pretty accent color. Hugs!

  2. I'd have bought that bread box in a heart beat!! Never seen such good stuff here! (Or someone else gets it first!)

  3. I needed a shopping trip and this one was at least affordable! I would be hauling around that cow picture if I had been there. Please let me know if it's ok to use that picture, with a link to this post, in a post I'm doing on cowbells?

    1. So glad that you like it! Yes, I would be delighted if you used it in your post! Hugs...Debbie

    2. Debbie, posted this morning. Thanks for the use of your picture, and for giving me the idea inspiration. R/sharon.

  4. Fun shopping with you. The bunny molds take me back to our first home. I had a collection of these molds in our kitchen. One was a bunny much like these. They were special to me, but no place to use them here in this kitchen. I have them packed away because they were too sentimental for me to party with them.

  5. Debbie, I am coveting the finger vases or tulipiers, as I've heard them called. Another blogger from the South that I read has found about five of them at thrift shops but I'd never seen or heard of them before she showed me hers. I wonder if they are a southern thing. But I sure would like one! I spent my virtual money on all three of them because I couldn't decide which one I liked best!

    A fun post!

  6. Loved the virtual shopping trip! Last Saturday, I found two plain white finger vases ($1 each!) at a yard sale and snatched them up to sell in my booth in an antique shop. But when I got home, I decided to keep them both. This may be the beginning of a collection--I love your painted ones and will be on the hunt for more. Thanks for taking us with you to the Queen of Hearts!

  7. I can't believe you didn't buy the bread box. If I had been with you, it would be coming home with me.


  8. It's funny, I found the same ceramic French Country bread box here in Boise, but for only $5.00 at Goodwill! Photo here- Nancy
