It's been raining here all morning. Nobody is complaining. It's much needed. Our lawns are crunchy. Thought it would be a good day for some 'flea market and antique' browsing, without dodging the rain drops.
Do you love the beautiful pale yellow color of the looking glass above as much as me? So pretty.
Oh the treasures you can find on etsy, like this little sampler box with a present in each compartment.

I just love the delicate lines and the simplicity of this pale blue bowl.

The classic lines of a shirt dress. It never goes out of style.

I have a love of teapots. My favorite thing about these is that they look like they've been the stars in many a tea party in a child's room.

If I had to pick a favorite out of these pretty little dishes, I'd have to go with the poppy, but it would be a hard decision. They're all lovely.

How about vintage linens? These dish towels are so reminiscent of a time gone by, yet completely current at the same time.

This pink sugar bowl is so detailed and sweet, with a picture of an open window and a birdcage beyond. It's the newest listing in our own etsy shop, Bates Mercantile Co.

You have to love treasure hunting right from your computer. As you can see, I am drawn to a variety of vintage things. What I really find interesting about vintage pieces is that it seems they all have a story to tell. Are you drawn to particular things when treasure hunting at flea markets and antique stores? Do tell.
Hey- The sun is out! So much for the rain.
Happy Monday. Hope it's a good one in your part of the world.
