June's Favorite Find

I don't ever buy pottery, I don't know much about it and I don't like buying things that break.  But June's Favorite Find is a pottery flower pot with a lily of the valley design.  Lily of the valley is my favorite flower and I just love the colors on this pot.  I even love it with the large crack on the back.  I don't know the maker, there are no markings or signatures.  If anyone in blog land ever reads this and knows what it is please clue me in.  I am keeping it and using it as a planter.  And I hope to find some other like this maybe with a different flower design.

Pretty Things to Make Me Smile

I have been feeling so out of sorts lately.  Sadness, frustration, anger, feeling like I take one step forward and two steps back.  Of course not everyday is like that but when it is I enjoy pretty little things that make me smile. 

Here are some recent finds, don't mind my photos I rarely have time to take them when the sun is actually shining.  They are still pretty...
