Spring is here…

13 Apr

Happy spring! Here I am, dressed to go to the Cheekwood botanical garden to see all the spring tulips. As you can see, I enjoy a theme…and I also enjoy dressing up a little to go to tourist-y attractions. I always think it’s more fun if I am dressed up for it…not crazy-formal, but on the dressier side of casual. Why not?

My 1970’s-era wrap skirt is a $5 purchase from the World’s Longest Yard Sale last summer and the shirt is from the Kayce Hughes annual clearance sale…I paid $12. Cheap, cheap!  I’m always looking for deals and  trying to make my clothes budget go a tiny bit further…IMG_1803Cheekwood is very beautiful this time of year; if you have a chance to go before the tulips are done blooming, you really should. It also features a circa 1935 mansion-turned-art museum with very nice china and silver collections, including some Paul Revere silver. IMG_1801I’ve got some new spring-themed items in the booth, including this Pyrex “Ivy” patterned Cinderella bowl chip and dip with the original cradle. IMG_1793And I’ve got some new Pyrex snowflake…wrong time of year for it, but aqua is such a popular color that I figured that I would put it out anyway….IMG_1796Hopefully spring has sprung, wherever you are, and you are getting to enjoy it!

    Very nice. Tulips won’t be blooming for another few weeks here.

    I do enjoy visiting botanical gardens. The tulips are so beautiful. Also enjoy seeing your flea market and estate sale items. Some of them bring back a lot of memories.

    That chip and dip is flllllyyyyy….I haven’t seen a pyrex chip and dip out in the wild before (what I’ve been missing!). Lovely pictures from Cheekwood, I know it was even prettier in person!!
