Cool Old Cast Iron Urn

I won!!! I'm one of those people who rarely win but I did this time!

There's a cute little shop in a small river town nearby that I tend to frequent often called 
(link above)

Lacy, the owner, was giving away a $100 gift certificate, I entered and to my surprise one morning last week I found a message that I had won!

I had my eye on this tall (over the knee), heavy urn with the most amazing patina. It looks like long ago it may have been painted green.

I had Mr. Wild set it next to the front door outside but realized I wanted to enjoy it more. Now it's inside sitting in front of one of my old chippy white doors.

If any of you are ever in the Afton, Minnesota area please stop by her shop!
Plus even better, she's opening a second shop in Hastings, Minnesota.
Both towns are fun river towns (St. Croix River) full of history and antique shops.

Thanks Lacy!

Just a few pretties...

I hope everyone had a nice and safe 4th of July!

Just a few little pretty things I found last weekend while out 'junking'.
They got as far as the back porch and looked sort of pretty sitting there so I decided to take a couple of pictures before I scooped them up to come inside and find a new home.
Love that old petticoat lace!

Thanks for stopping by!
