Lavabo Treasure

Found this beautiful Copidemonte Lavabo set from the 1920's - 1930's at a local flea market mall this Spring.  Actually it was my treat to myself for my birthday this year.  I had been looking at it for a couple of years and finally decided to make it mine!  It is just gorgeous....

Look at the detail......

Complete with a spicket.....

All the flowers are intact and perfect.....

What a find......wouldn't you have loved to live in the 1920's?  What a romantic time for decorating and for life!

Garden Jewels

The long hot days of summers do have some benefits.......oh just look at those gorgeous hydrangeas.....

And if that is not enough......even the porch planters are singing out with their own glorious blooms!

My favorite planter on my deck is my old leaky fountain's been leaking for years.  So when I could no longer fill it with water I was determined to keep it out on the porch.  And now as you can see it is the new home for my impatiens........

Flowers, reading and flea marketing are my 3 addition to my family.

So I'll be sharing a little of all of the above over the course of posting this year.....hope you will enjoy the journey!
