Hello friends!  I hope you're all doing well!

As promised, I wanted to share with you some of the things I purchased from another one
of my new sponsors...

Most of you probably know Mary from her beautiful blog, Urban Farmgirl, where she
shares with us her passion for painting vintage and antique pieces of furniture white (which she
sells at shows throughout the year), her amazing DIY projects, and her vintage pickin' adventures.
It's always a fun read filled with beautiful photography.  Mary recently reopened her Etsy shop as
well, and of course I had to take a look.  It wasn't hard for me to find some things I fell in love with
and just had to have!

This creamer pitcher and sugar bowl set was one of them. 

I didn't have enough room to display the set together, so I displayed the sugar bowl on my kitchen
cabinet shelves along with some of my other vintage white ironstone pieces.

I thought these vintage black and cream game pieces were fabulous! I LUV the fleur de lis on the
back and the patina of the type face letters.

While browsing through the many beautiful vintage pieces for sale in Mary's shop, you'll also get to
enjoy her amazing photography.  Here are some of what you can find at Urban Farmgirl...

Yes, ladies... there are still more of these fabulous vintage game pieces left. :)

**Besides the fact that Mary is more than professional when handling your order, she is also an
absolute sweetheart to boot!  Please join me in welcoming her to my blog, and if you're planning
on doing a little shopping, you should definitely head on over to Urban Farmgirl to check out ALL
of the beautiful pieces she has to offer.  Mary wanted me to let all of you know that she will be
adding new products to her shop tomorrow morning, so make sure to check back tomorrow evening
to see what's new!**

over at Common Ground.  Thanks for hosting every week ladies!

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit and taking the time to leave your sweet comments. 
I hope the rest of the week is a good one for all of you!

'Til next time...

    Great weekend to you too that's coming up soon!

  31. Hi "Jo"
    I have some of those game pieces that were made into a charm that hangs from a necklace. I bought them from Lisa Sours from farm chicks.

    I love the comments ones give us when we or my daughter and her friends get when they wear them.
    I gifted 8 of them to her girlfriends for Christmas gifts, they were a hit.
    So you did good picking these little treasures up!!

    Love the white pottery/china I too could not resist a purchase like this as well.
    I am sure it looks beautiful in my favorite kitchen (yours) my dear.

    Inspire all the beauty you want, you do it all so well.

  32. Hi Jo,

  34. I love visiting your blog. I used to live in Linden, CA and though I do not miss the fog I do miss the long growing season and how my roses flourished there. I now live in the mountains about an hour and a half east, the beauty of living here is NO fog in the winter. When you guys are socked in we are enjoying lovely sunshine and mild temps. I will have to go visit Ms Mary's shop and blog. Thanks!

  35. I am really liking the cream pitcher and the stack of bowls. Enjoy your new goodies!

  36. Such lovely things and you have them displayed so beautifully.I look forward to checking out her shop.
