This and that

My birthday was a couple of months ago and one of the presents I received from one of my sisters was a vintage book she found at an op shop that had my name in the title. It made a lovely gift. I have since read it and enjoyed the innocence and adventure from a past era.
Thought you might like the cute apron I received and I bought the planter with a voucher I received. The primulas are looking very cheerful!
I woke this morning and felt like going to some garage sales to see what little treasures I could find, but to my disappointment didn't come home with anything :(
However a few months back I bought some little wrought iron stands for $15. These could be used for pots or as little coffee tables. I plan to paint them white, I'm just waiting for the warmer weather to arrive.
Just as we have nice containers to hold our everyday coffee, tea, sugar etc..
I also have a special little jar that I found at a garage sale to hold my cotton balls which is something I use daily to take my eye makeup off. I made the label to give it some more character.

They are lovely planters, can't wait to see how they'll look after a paint job.
