Bonjour Mes Amis!
It's hard to believe that not only is September here already, but that it's been an entire week since I did a blog post! I've had a good case of blogger's block, and for the life of me just couldn't think of anything remotely interesting to talk about!!
So anyway, today I thought I'd share with you the cutest little vintage porcelain flower pushcart, which I found earlier this summer while out thrifting. At only $1.99, this cutie just had to come home with me!
I had never seen anything like it before, so I was super excited to discover it at one of my favorite thrift shops.
I've included it in a little vignette that I created on my wooden curio shelf.
I have so much fun changing out my shelf with the seasons, and thought for this I would give it a sort of "farewell to summer" theme!
Ok, let's look a bit closer at the treasures inside...............
I've filled my pushcart with bright and cheery zinnas from my cutting garden. I really have had a bumper crop of them this year!
Adding to the late summer time feel, are two cute little vintage bottles that I've embellished (and glittered, of course!) with a seafaring theme. Of course I just had to add this pair of sweet little birdies, because, well, I love birds!
I also am in love with vintage silver creamers, the more patina, the better!
I've filled this little one with more blooms.
And I've tucked a little bird's nest, as well as a few glittered sea shells, that I collected on beach vacations
('cause I'm not yet totally ready to give up summer!).
A pretty little demitasse cup and saucer from hubby's mom's collection.
To a vintage flower frog, I added a neat vintage postcard featuring a ship and pretty blue forget me nots.
Oooh, la, la! I just had to add one of my little Eiffel Towers!
This is my very favorite vintage creamer. I really am going to miss not having fresh flowers to pick by the arm full!
One of my cherished treasures, a cast iron lion bank that belonged to my dad when he was a little boy.
It still has some old pennies in it that he collected.
And here is one last look.
Ok, getting back to my cute pushcart. I did a little research, and discovered that it originally would have come with a porcelain flower frog insert. While mine doesn't have it, it still is in excellent condition, and it marked "made in Japan" on the bottom. The cart is in my favorite colors of light aqua blue, white, and shades of pink.
Here is what the other side looks like (above).
I think it would be so cute filled with a nest and eggs. Or glittered little pinecones!
And last but not least, I thought I'd share with you what our puppy Katie and hubby like to do in their "spare time" (tee, hee!). She sure is a daddy's girl!
Have a great weekend!
