Fun as always to see your blog in the morning :-)
I'm going to be heading out to the garden later on and finish my flowers in the front planters....Very inspiring blog you have to get me motivated.
Such cool things like the flower fund container and the floral powder duster.Of course everything else is interesting too!!
Thanks for sharing.
Have a wonderful day

My Shabby Roses

I love vintage floral items too. You have some great ones in your collection. My weakness would tend to be the old metal frogs...love them!

In answer to your question Laurie I picked up that bench at Martindales. It's always nice to purchase something especially when you're not the first one through the door. (o:


Love all the fun vintage floral goodies!! That flower fund is so neat!! Love the history!! The metal flower powder duster has some great graphics!! Have a lovely day!! xo Heather


The pump reminds me when Black Flag came in a thing like that! I bet you love those rose catalogs! We used to play tennis on the courts up by the rose gardens...a happy memory of PDX.



I sometimes try to imagine what it would be like to live someplace where you were able to garden year around. I wonder if Spring would hold that same excitement that it does for us here in the PNW!


You had me at Vintage Garden/Flower things! I have a huge collection in my potting shed (a place to go to relax...not pot flowers). Thanks for sharing yours.


we have so much in common! Love this stuff too! Thanks for posting... :-)


Be still my heart. We surely would fight all over these. This is such a weakness for me. Having majored in Horticulture in college I could never leave the need for plants behind....thank you for the smiles...Renee


You really have the BEST collections...I love flower frogs and only have a few but I think it is time to get more. Hugs to you my friend.

Into Vintage

I too love the vintage garden doodads and illustrations although I haven't allowed myself to collect them since I sense I might go a little berserk. I think the flower fund + note is my favorite -- so sweet someone wrote that down after being reunited with their dad's creation (and darn that Powell Valley Sunday school for discarding it)!

I remember receiving those flower catalogs when I was a kid and begging Mom to get some seeds or starters. I PROMISED to plant them and water them and blah blah blah. Of course she knew I'd either wind up killing them or she'd have to take over so needless to say we never ordered anything. And she was right about me killing plants, unfortunately. Great collection of stuff as usual, Laurie!


Love this collection! I am also glad someone saved that homemade flower fund item.

I also collect dusters and have quite a collection of metal and one big glass one.
