Summer Tea Cart
Now that the 4th has come and gone, I got started on a summertime tea cart. This is what we've got so far.
A fishy, a little bit of blue, a pretty fluffy hydrangea, a starfish, pink flamingos, a sunflower, some oranges, seashells and a crab.
It's a work in progress but I like how it's shaping up!
I think it needs a mermaid, though.
This sweet little fish is actually a 1950's fish wall pocket. I got him at an antique store for $5. He's going on my bathroom wall when the fall tea cart goes up! I just love that little face!!
I popped in at our local Salvation Army this afternoon and it's a good thing I did! I found the most awesome 1960's dining room set with a huge table and six chairs for $90! I loved it at first sight. I loved the solid wood, the amazing quality you just don't find nowadays, the vintage atomic style of the chairs, every little thing about it. I got home and googled it and found out it's a Broyhill Premier Emphasis set and it's selling for $650 right now on Etsy. I am so excited to get it home tomorrow!! It needs a good bath and some TLC and I am just the girl for the job. I will have that thing sparkling by dark. :)
While I was in there, I looked around and I found this vintage Disney World mug with Larry's name on it!! I got it for 30 cents. It's a little worse for the wear (probably dishwasher damage) but I had to have it. It goes on the summer tea cart because you go to Disney World in the summertime! You also get you a Florida Orange Bird bank if you go to Florida on vacation and you're a kid in the 1970's. And I was and I did. :)
