I just realized as I was searching for something, okay anything, to write about, that I had neglected to share some photos of the treasures I found while traveling in the New England area.
Most of these items were found at a little flea market near Boothbay Harbor, ME. The vendors set up on the side of the road each weekend. It was a treasure trove and it was all I could do not to buy a little bit of everything from each booth. But I restrained myself...or rather, the hubster restrained me.
So, before I pack these things in a box and forget about them until Christmas (when I discover some lonely box tucked in a corner that I forgot to unpack from the move), let's see what I found....
....blue bottles! Why did I purchase these? I have no idea. I do not have one single blue thing in my house and never use blue in decorating...oh wait, I do have that little blue VW bug sitting on my steps for the summer...but these have nothing to do with that. I thought I would use them as vases for the summer, but summer will be over by the time we move and get settled and I'm not holding up that fall decor for one single second! Much less for the use of a blue bottle!
Aren't these adorable!?! I loved the detail cut into the glass and their little silver heads are so pointy!
Okay, so are you really going to act surprised that I picked up a piece of silver? I actually picked up several, but I couldn't get a good photo....too reflect-y.....and you really didn't want to see me in my pink pajamas!
If you head back up to the photo of the blue bottles, you will see a packet of Alder Smoked Sea Salt. I picked this up in Salem, MA to ward off ghosts and witches while we were visiting. Now you really don't believe that do you? ;-) This salt is amazing and flavors any dish wonderfully! Sometimes I open the packet just to take a big whiff because it smells so good. The hubster says there has got to be some law against smelling salts....get it...smelling salts...or is that sauce...oh well...
