Just wanted to share the interesting vintage pieces that arrived this week at The Courtyard. Love the Leeds English pearlware chestnut basket with the lid. Rarely do you get a chance to see one in person in such fabulous condition. Also the primitive spatterware plates are pretty awesome with some of my favorite colors and finally the small French Quimper plate. Don’t you wonder where these items have traveled to over the years?
So, what did I do on my summer vacation? I made my first cherry pie! My husband’s family has a small cherry orchard, so after almost 30 years of summers on the Old Mission Peninsula, I finally decided it was time to make my first cherry pie, in fact, my first pie ever. I’ve been inspired by all the cooking Kristen at Knitionary is always doing. I love to stop over and take in her dinner parties. On my bucket list. Anyway, one day in Sutton’s Bay, I saw this fun cherry pie cut-out and knew I had to try it. So thank you to the girls over at The Front Porch, it’s a keeper. We spent two weeks of fun in the sun and near the end of our stay, we stopped by the orchard, picked and pitted and I ended up making 3 pies for the family. They look beautiful and even more surprising, they even tasted great. I guess I will now have to make this a summer tradition. Who knew?
The month of July, Traverse City Michigan, on the lake.
I’m wearing my vintage cat pin today in honor of Ellie’s new kitten: Cushie short for a name I just can’t remember.
Sunday at Elkhorn.
Missing one. Out to look for a match tomorrow.
Can you believe Estate Sales now start on Thursday? So the weekend begins! We saw this velvet tapestry sofa at an 100 year old Prairie style home in Wheaton. It sold just as we walked into the house. Next time.
This is a lovely example of the vintage postage stamp quilt pattern. Love the red!
My friend Linda told me a couple of years ago that she went out to find a vintage flower basket salt and pepper set and no one even knew what she was talking about. Of course, my husband would say that’s because they are all in our house. I never thought I would collect salt and peppers, but I now know, never say never.
Not only is this is great sale, but for such a good cause. Wellness House provides free programs to support families whose lives are affected by cancer. Go, and get there early. So, here’s a quick peek at some items that will be available on Friday morning………………
