I have been going through pictures stored in my pictures online and found this one of everything I just love. My Blue and Whites and some silver shakers . My first old mannequin I bought at an indoor flea market for $25. I have added a lot more pearls around her neck now .Love my hydrangea in my galvanized bucket also. Like I said things I like all these items a lot and always in the studio playing around finding things  in drawers I forgot I had.


And then this one where I was practicing taking close ups LOL Had my silver plate flatware out for a prop . This was my Mom's silverware she picked out in 1957 Coronation is the pattern name originally made in 1936 

 I am planning on having an interesting week end and will tell you about it next week. Anyway if it's interesting I'll mention it LOL 
It's turning so cool here fast so I may be bringing in some of my house plants next weekend  or sooner.I am not in the mood for fall weather I still want it to be summer,I still have summer things I want to do LOL guess i won't be doing them will I ??? LOL

  5. Pretty pictures and I can see why you love these items! I would TOO!
    It was 102 yesterday. NOT as hot today and slowly cooling off here in Texas! It will be close to Christmas before we think about bringing plants inside. I need to look at your profile.....I think I forgot where you live!

  6. Hi Janice,
    Have fun this weekend! My mom is going with me to Louisiana for the historic homes tour so maybe I will blog about it. Guess what?! I bought an antique pier mirror at the sale I was working at this week. I just love it.
    Talk to you soon.

  7. Those are beautiful blues! I love them all.
    Have a wonderful, fun, interesting weekend! xo Diana

  8. Love the blues. I love the books I saw in the next post too. I'm on the hunt for some!

  9. Love your beautiful blues. That mannequin was a steal. Awesome score. Love the salt and pepper shakers. Have a great week end.

  10. Those silver shakers are gorgeous! I've been collecting some of the older glass salt and pepper shakers but I haven't found any of these...yet! I love searching for vintage treasures, don't you? Hugs, Diane

  11. You had me at Blue! Beautiful photos! You've certainly peeked my curiosity on what you'll be up to next week, can't wait to hear more.

  12. Like you I am always finding things in the studio I forgot I had. That's the only thing that makes cleaning the studio fun! I love your blue mannequin. She looks pretty in her tutu and pearls!
