Look what we found

Amish dolls, print and simple pottery

Sometimes being on the hunt amazes me.  You don't set out to find anything special, but certain items become "just what you were looking for". For example, the little stuffed amish dolls in the photo:  we already had the framed amish print, and then we happened upon the dolls.  At the same time the pottery has the colors and feel of the the painting, so then we have a vignette—love it!

Silverplate tiered tray with lavender sachets

Need to refill this pretty silverplate tiered tray with Tina's popular lavender sachets.  The lavender is in tiny fabric "pillows" stamped with stripes and birds — makes a lovely little hostess gift in packets of 3's tied together with ribbon — perfect for Thanksgiving.

Found this somewhat chippy painted large hutch top which fits perfectly on a 1955 (made in Rockford) modern buffet with porcelain insets on the top. The buffet features large white porcelain knobs on the dovetailed drawers.  I am not usually drawn to mid century furniture, but the porcelain knobs are my downfall.  Couldn't resist.  And the fact that the hutch top fit as though it was made to order clinched the deal.  Love the blue and white with it.
