Bluebirds and Forget-Me-Nots

What started out as a simple little bluebird butter pat turned into a craving for more blue...bluebirds and forget-me-nots...


I hit a sale this week and found this shabby but pretty bluebird plate along with...


this shabby little bluebird pitcher...


and here's the lovely blue bird butter pat I picked up from my friends Etsy shop...


Then I spotted this pretty tea cup and saucer that was a steal at $7.95



I went back another day because I couldn't get this sweet little forget-me-not plate out of my head...


 and this pretty one cup tea pot with the little plate, I'd love to find a matching tea cup.


Now that ought to keep me happy for awhile.... how could one resist such vintage beauty!!!


I was just over visiting Miss Gracie's Blog. I clicked on her link to picmonkey and played a little with this pitcher image. Stop by her blog and see what she has done...it's kind of fun!

Thanks for stopping!

I hardly ever find the blue bird dishes and if so they are never in the great shape yours are in. They are some of my favorites.
