Flower frogs, and a mirror.


Good morning all you bloggers out there! I truly hope you had an enjoyable weekend!
I was soooooooo blessed to be able to spend three days with my BFF Laurie, from Heaven's Walk.
We shopped antique stores, vintage shops, and a HUGE, huge, antique/flea market. We both found the most awesome vintage "stuff". It was such a wonderful time being with my soul sister...looking for pieces that we love decorating our houses with.
We  were hunting for flower frogs...and wooohoooo, did we find them! 
We also found lamps, screens, wire baskets, seed bags and grain sacks of all kinds, doors, windows, and many other wonderful things we couldn't pass up.
I have a bunch of posts coming up, showing the great items we brought home.
Today I'm sharing the flower frogs, and a sweet little vintage mirror. 
Cute, huh?  You get a sneek peak at the screens we found too. Funny story that goes with that upcoming post....we both got a set of these beauties.
Well, it's time to get out on the boat for the day.  Too hot to NOT be on the water.
Enjoy your day lovies.


  1. Those are some great finds! Can't wait to see what else you found!
    Have a wonderful day floating on the water...we have clouds here and a few spinkles.
    Hugs- Tete

  2. I am looking forward to seeing those screens--they looks so pretty from what I can see.

    As far as the weather it was actually in the low 60's here this morning---I couldn't believe it and my walk at 7 was very nice! Yesterday there was a nice breeze on the river and things felt great even though it was in the upper 80's.

  3. Ooooh...I am sooooo jealous! Seriously...GREEN! What wonderful finds. I cannot wait to see the screens. My dd was with me and made me pass up a set of louvered doors the other day. They were only $5.00!! I could kick myself now for not arguing her into getting them! grrrrr...after seeing a hint of yours she is on my Crap & Slap list!

    BTW-guess what is going in the mail as soon as I go out the door today? hmmm...can you guess? By the time you get them you will no longer recognize me! lol Going back to my old hair style (which isn't much of a style at all)- Keeping curly hair straight must have been designed by the Devil to keep me humble!

    I am sooo glad that you and ever-sweet Laurie had such a wonderful time. Did the "boys" stay home and drink MadRat/HappyCat? just askin....;>) xxoo Diana

  4. How precious!! You really hit the jackpot! I'd love to know where you were shopping! Love the antique mirror and the picture frame behind it is just too cute! I love how you decorate your home!

    We are not going to the lake until after the 11th because of a million reasons. I'll miss that and the last few times we can be on the water. It's sad isn't it. But fall in the country makes up for it.

    Hope all is well with you, girlfriend! :-)


  5. Oooh! I am so envious you got to spend time together! How fun! I adore your mirror, and the flower frogs are great, too! I have one vintage one that I just love! Have fun on the lake!

  6. Oooh! Great finds. I am guessing that you went to that Allegan Antique Market again. I live only about 20 min. away & have never been...maybe this fall. Weekends for us, are up near Ludington.
    Can't wait to see what you do with those screens...too fun!!
    Trusting you are out enjoying the lake right now : )

  7. It is a hot day here too. We'll be in the 90's till Thursday they say. I'm in the house where the a/c is. This is not my favorite place to be but it is cool in here. Glad you found lots of lovely things. I haven't been antiquing in a long time but also have a soul sister that likes to do that. Enjoy the boating.

  8. I love the little mirror. I cannot wait to see the screens in their entirety. Sounds like you had a great time!

    Have fun on the boat!

  9. OH, everything looks so lovely!! I can't wait to see more! Sounds like you had a great time! There is nothing better than flea marketing with a kindred spirit!

  10. Hmmmmmm.......those treasures sure look familiar.......Where have I seen them before.....? MIIIIIISSSSSSS YOUUUUUUUUU!!!!!

    XOXO laurie@heavens-walk

  11. What a beautiful blog you have. I love frogs. When was very little my Nani used them to arrange flowers. They work so well. I'll have to look for them the next time I go antiquing.
    Wonderful to stop by!

  12. love the flower frogs...all of other your finds, too.
    can't wait to see the rest!


  13. Love the frame - its beautiful...with lots of character.

  14. What beautiful finds. I am so glad you got to spend time having fun with your friend. I will be spending time with my sister at the end of this month and I'm so excited. We can do some serious shopping! LOL

    I love collecting frogs too. Yours are great.


  15. Don't you just love having a design "soul sister"?! So wonderful to have a good friend to shop with! Gorgeous finds here, love the weathered woods. Happy to find your lovely little world, happy to be your newest follower!

  16. Treasures, indeed! I love the way you have it displayed, too.

    I guess I usually have my sound down when I come here because this is the first time I've noticed your beautiful music. It "fit" with looking at your stuff.

  17. I'm sooo jealous! The only thing better than thrifting is thrifting with a friend.Can't wait to see all of your goodies. The vintage mirror is so cute... It's really hot here too but I'm glad to be back at the condo. At least we have an ocean breeze unlike home in the upstate.
    Have fun out on the water and be safe, Annette

  18. Great finds! Everything is lovely....
    Sweet Blessings,
