My “find” for this week would be a teaspoon.
I’m always on the hunt for vintage silverware, it’s so full of character and makes me think of farmhouses and family meals. It makes me think of summer, and bridal showers, and other special occasions.
But I also found the pretty white teacup at Value Village several years ago. I just loved the green and mauve design, and the slightly worn gold edges.
After I took all my photos, I sat and drank the lovely green tea and admired my garden. It’s doing ultra well this year. We’ve had a lot of rain and there’s more in the forecast.
Have I mentioned that I love lilacs?
And I love my garden.
It’s pretty maintenance free, mostly perennials, with a few annuals sprinkled here and there. Right now the anemones are blooming their hearts out.
It’s such a rush! Every day a different plant starts to flower. I can hardly keep up. It’s heavenly.
Your Lilacs are amazing! We have Lilacs all around the fence line of our property. The only thing I can’t stand is how shot a period of time they bloom for. Your shots are great and your garden is truly beautiful! Have yourself a great weekend.
Wow, what a pretty teacup, Barb, and the teaspoon,
so lovely with the tiny lilac flower …
Lovely bouquet, and your garden looks great !
Have a wonderful weekend,
Your garden is beautiful! Lots of hard work go into it I would imagine. Enjoy!
Your photos are all so beautiful.

What a charming garden…I would love to join you for a spot of tea in those pretty little cups sitting in that beautiful garden.
Oh my goodness….. You live in a place I’d love to live… That garden, flowers, and oh my that adorable tea cup. If I was your neighbor, I’d stop by for a cup of tea and a chat….
Lovely finds this week at your place Barb! My eye landed on your old pitcher holding the lilacs…I enjoyed a visit to your beautiful flower garden!

Barb – what a perfect trio – the spoon, the cup and the lovely linen!
Your garden and garden shed are as adorable as can be! I too like old silverware – my mom has a nice collection and this reminds me to photograph it the next time I visit!
Love your garden shed. The shot of the flower on the spoon is wonderful.
Your photography is so wonderful. I love that you take time to find your favorite vintage things…
