Vintage Summer Monday

Monday morning again! I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I unintentionally managed to pick up some thrifty treasures on my way home from soccer.
A pewter bowl with a detailed base and a little glass dish with a lid
Two glasses
A long white planter/vase/urn and a little trip down memory lane with some choose your own adventure books. I remember loving these when I was younger and my son has never read one. I am always trying to encourage him to read more and I thought he may enjoy these as much as I used to. Some silver plated napkin rings A new set of decor plastic storage The pewter bowl now holds face washers in the main bathroom
Only one glass survived through the washing up...
I tried the long planter here, you can see my cute metal label from Sam here.
I didn't like it there
I like this better!
I am linking up to the lovely Melinda's Vintage Summer Monday. Stop over and visit to see lots of lovely Vintage Treasures. Have a great Monday.

  4. Hey Nellie,
    what a great haul! So much stuff. I bought my son some Enid Blyton mystery books a few years ago as I had enjoyed reading them as a child - hope your son enjoys his. I would love the storage jars - I really need to get more organised. The little cuisine label looks great :)

  5. By the way- I love your new symbol/picture of yourself - very cute.

    Gosh - I am planning a brunch with friends at my place and your silver bowl and napkin rings would look perfect with the rustic table setting that I am planning! Love them.

    Happy Monday x o
