Vintage Etched Glass Basket

I always see these glass baskets at the Flea Market and wonder why people don’t buy them and use them anymore.  Vintage beats modern any day of the week.

It’s Spring in Chicago on the day of the Chicago Botanic Antique & Garden Fair, always.  This is the one show in Chicago that you can count on to always have unique, unusual and one of a kind antique and garden displays.  I loved the elegant green and white table scape and plan on replicating this for my daughter’s engagement party with my own antique glassware.  My second favorite was the shadowbox wall display of vintage wine openers which were super popular as most all were sold.  Something new to look for tomorrow out at the flea market, my husband will be thrilled.  The show runs through Sunday so you still have time to get there, go.

My Hummingbird feeder has finally been found by the Hummingbirds, but a few of the Chickadees seem to be attracted as well.  I’m waiting for the Yellow Finch to jump in anytime.  Regardless, we are enjoying the show.  Recipe:  1/4 cup sugar to 1 cup water.

I’ve decided to go pink this year after our trip to Johansen Farms in Bolingbrook.  We finally beat the gardening crowd, fully stocked and plenty to choose from.  Lovely.
