The Goods!

As promised, here are my treasures that I brought back from Remnants of the Past, and the Ventura Flea Market last weekend.
This rusty bucket will soon house some pretty flowers. The butcher block is getting used to being in my kitchen, or should I say my husband and I are getting used to it being in the kitchen. I have always wanted some type of an island in my kitchen. My husband always tells me there is no room, so when I spied this small sized block, he couldn't say no. I think it makes the kitchen more cozy, plus an extra work space or spot for something pretty.
Check out the 2 wire baskets, one was $30 the other $2 crazy I know.
I love the apothecary bottle that I bought from Heather. I found an antique label on etsy that I am going to put on it. The mirror is going to be hung in my family room.
The wooden dough bowl that I bought from my friend Jennifer Grey, will be cleaned out and maybe will hold fruit. Not sure yet what I'm doing with all of it, but it's fun stuff. I love decorating with these things, as I know you do.
I hope you are having a good week!!
Chat again soon.

Hi Rosemary,
I love your finds! The chopping block is wonderful and just the right size too (knowing this from having a tinsy tiny kitchen here). Saw one sort of like it in Petaluma last year but it was $$$ but I'm still thinking of it. So happy you got a darling one for yourself sweetheart. Love the dough bowl... well like I said, love it all!

Got your message, that is a fantastic price ~ you got a great deal! That block was worth the drive alone. It's great you're coming up in June, hoping all the rain's gone by then (yes, it's raining here today). Talk to you soon & can't wait to see those crowns for Mother's Day ;)

Love the butchers block, mirror, dough bowl and the round frame. Is that a cloche lurking in the background? If it is I'm SO jealous, the FEW cloches I can find in the UK are way out of my pocket.
