Vintage plates

 A couple of vintage plates  I found at the local thrift store.  The quilt  that is under them I bought at the church white elephant sale last summer for $3.00   I love the  tiny pink pattern on it

                                                    This  one reminds me of my childhood..
I don't think a lot of young ones
remember to do this at bedtime

                             I thought I would also share this flower .
                 I was at my friend's cabin up north last spring when I saw this was growing along  the         
             pathway. I didn't recognize looked like a violet but I had never seen before.
             This spring I finally found the name for this pretty little flower...
                 it's called "Barefoot Violet"   and it is a woodland flower.
               It seems to thrive for me in this pot and I will be able to divide it and transplant it this fall.

 May you find laughter and  peace within your heart today...

  2. Good thrifting - I like the first two plates the best. So delicate. sandie
