Lunch with Bloggers and Shopping

Yesterday I had the most fun day.  I met with Ceekay of Thinkin' of Home and Liz of Rose Vignettes for lunch and a little antique/junk shopping.  These two ladies are just the sweetest and so much fun to be with.  Liz was an angel and took us to some of her favorite haunts.  There was so much to see and wouldn't you know, I didn't take my camera.  What in the world was I not thinking. 

Of course I found a couple of treasures.  There were a couple of other things that I think I really need too, so I may have to go back.  I found this beautiful cache pot filled with these stunning paper roses.  They are just exquisite.

I had to play and put it on the coffee table.  I think it is so pretty. 

See how full it is, and the baby's breath is just so delicate.  I also really like the organza and satin bows.

Isn't it fun to find a new treasure.  Love it.

I did find another treasure that came home with me too.  Check back for Table Top Tuesday and I will show you what it is.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I always look forward to your visits. 


  1. Oh Marty, I love it! It's just beautiful, and you will think of your fun day every time you look at it. This is going to sound like a silly question, but how will you clean it? I'm thinking canned air? I would worry about hurting the paper. I think I would end up putting it under glass to protect it LOL. Hugs, Kat

  2. It's gorgeous Marty. I love it on your coffee table.

  3. What a lovely find, Marty. Yes, C said you all had a marvelous time together. Nothing more fun that best bud's having a day out. So glad you enjoyed all ...

  21. Marty,
    A treasure indeed! The paper roses are exquisite!

    Thank you for the reminder to take time with friends.

  24. Thank you for your encouraging words.
    As I have supported my doula clients, some through pregnancy and birth and others with new baby care these last few days I find I do not have the time to chat with each of you individually and thank you for commenting or participating in our Tuesday meme. Please know how much we appreciate and anticipate your contributions each week.

    Look forward to joining you around the tea table this week.

    Blessings, Pam
