Mine, All Mine!!

With the rush of heading back to work and preparing for this year’s students,  there hasn’t been a lot of time to play in the studio or shop for treasures.  I did sneak in a road trip or two before heading back to the real world, however, including a fun day at Lucketts and Leesburg, VA with Pamela and Karen.  In addition to a wonderful lunch at Shoe’s Cup and Cork Club in Leesburg, we checked in at the Emporium and I fell in love with the most beautiful tin at Sue‘s booth – Vintage Rescue.  For some reason, I didn’t buy it (do I really need an old tin, even though the color was perfect, and the labeling was well……perfect!!).  None the less I walked away – and preceded to be haunted by that lovely tin for the remainder of the week.  So, a few days later I headed right back down to Leesburg.  The tin was still there and now it is mine, all mine!!marshmallow tin 002 2

I mean, really, “Softwhite Marshmallows” for goodness sakes!!! In a Robin’s Egg blue!!!  I was lucky enough to meet Vintage  Rescue Sue herself that day, as she was “foofing” her booth with even more pretties.

One more thing….. Ekster in Leesburg is having a big sale now to clear out their barn and prep for tons of new goodies purchased during their trip overseas this summer.  They are only open Fri-Sun right now, but if you are anywhere within driving distance to Leesburg – it is Totally worth checking out.  I stopped in to chat with Caroline after scoring my tin, and as always did not walk away empty handed (I love the big old ironstone bowls she gets from Belgium!!)

    The tin is gorgeous! What a find! I had to laugh when I read that you passed it up the first time and had to return later that week to buy it. I don’t know how many times I’ve done the same thing.

  • Oh how I love your find!!! I love that color of blue too and it is so hard to past up anything that color…. and to think it housed marshmellows ~ how divine is that??
    I love my visits to your blog and am always so happy to see your visits to mine! Happy Saturday!!!

    Ps. I am applauding your giving heart as I read how you are using it to help others on the right side of your blog!

    Glad it went to a good home. I scooped that one up in a heartbeat!!!!

  • You were SO lucky that it was still there! I’ve learned to just buy what I love the first time to save myself the misery of worrying if it’s still there and saving myself of another trip because when I go back, I always find MORE stuff! You did good girl!

  • Just returned from AZ to find you made your return trip to Leesburg because I LET YOU DOWN AS AN ENABLER! Shame on me, after you were so good on my behalf!

  • Sue’s booth is always one of my favorite parts of Leesburg!
