Vintage Summer Monday

Melinda at Alabaster Rose Designs hosts Vintage Summer Monday's on her beautiful blog!  Although this will be the last she will have until she is done moving in July, I'm still thrilled to be able to participate, and I'm looking forward to her return!

Melinda is also having a 100 followers giveaway!
But HURRY!  It ends June 10th!

This past week I have been spending a lot of time with family who are visiting for my daughter's graduation!  We have had a blast checking out several antique shops in the area, with more to come!

Here are just a couple of the treasures I've found this week:

Vintage plate of roses!

Vintage flower frog, holding a picture I had found earlier!

Vintage metal wall mirror!
It's stamped "MadeItaly" on the back!!!  COOL!
(should I paint this white or not???)

Oh!  And if you haven't seen it already,
Dawn over at The Feathered Nest is also having a giveaway!
Just Because!!!
(I say just because she's so sweet!)

Have a wonderful Vintage Summer Monday!

Love all your finds. That mirror is something else! Painted white might be nice, I think white paint on anything works. Dawn's giveaway is great I love that necklace.

I do love the things you've found, have been looking for an old flower frog myself for a while now, and I adore the old Italian mirror. I think you should paint over it with white acrylic paint and then wipe it off leaving paint in the all those wonderful nooks and crannies. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

I love flower frogs. I saw THREE today at an antique shop I was at. I think you should paint the mirror white! Just my .02

I love the beautiful treasures you found, especially the plate and mirror! As much as I love white, I think the mirror is just gorgeous the way it is, it has a wonderful patina on it.
