Home Again… Home Again… Jiggity Jig…

June 1, 2011
Sunday’s early AM flights back to Calgary were loooong… I slept most of Sunday afternoon and evening… then back to work yesterday…
The weather is just beautiful outside this evening… I was out and watered the front gardens… all of the plants are really coming to life… I can see a difference in everything just from being away for one week!..
I managed to get a few shots of my finds from back home this evening as well…
Found sea urchin shells…

 

The colours in these are so subtle and beautiful…

 

I was thinking of bringing this galvanized tray to the Vintage Chicks Sale as well… but I’m not sure if I could part with it…

 

These urchin pretties will be coming to the Vintage Chicks Sales next weekend… it starts on Friday June 10…

 

Back home in Newfoundland I also found two different faux birds nests… I was going to Vintage Chick one of them but they’re both so pretty that I can’t let either of them go!.. hehehe… they were only $4 a piece!..

 

 

In downtown St. Johns… on Water Street… there is an awesome little shop called Home… they don’t have a website… or even a blog!.. but the store is absolutely amazing…

 

This large cast coral piece… was only $22… Similar corals at stores like Pottery Barn are selling for $60+!.. thats nuts!..
AAANNND… I also got this huge glass starfish for $22 as well!..  I carried it home in my carryon…
I also found this sweet vintage deviled egg plate…  back in Newfoundland… not that I like deviled eggs…  well maybe I do?.. I don’t know… I don’t think I’ve ever eaten one…
I just LOVE THe colour of this plate… I’ve googled and found similar plates to this… the two circles in the middle are supposed to hold salt and pepper shakers… but no salt and peppers came with it… JAPAN is stamped onto the back…

 

…and I’ve been looking for one of these for the longest time… for our Christmas Tree!.. a blown glass lighthouse ornament…  Furs loves lighthouses… a reminder of home…

 

Yesterday I picked up a few supplies to make my item tags for the Vintage Chicks Sale… …I’ll get those made this weekend coming!..

    Wow! Those sea urchins are so beautiful! I live in the desert so I never get to see them. I also liked your deviled egg plate. It was funny to see it because I linked up a recipe for deviled eggs today at the Shabby Chic Cottage. Try it out! I bet you will LOVE them! Thanks for sharing!

    Wow those sea urchin shells are amazing. I’m in a rocky west coast area and I’ve found some smaller shells and one larger one which was such a surprise. I love all the colors yours have. Have a great time at the Vintage Chick sale

    I have the devil egg tray stamped japan on the back no salt and pepper shakers. But mine is a tan with brown around the edge.
