White Wednesday Vacation Finds @ FrenchBleuVintage

I had such an awesome time in North Carolina last week. The weather was gorgeous, the water was warm, the people are charming as all get out, and the BBQ....don't get me started. It was great and I need to get back there very soon. We were in Ocean Island for 6 glorious days, just what I needed to re-charge. The 5 of us enjoyed every minute on the beach. The only time we really left was to head out to Lowes Market (they sell wine right in the store, what a concept). Just when I thought life couldn't get any better, I spotted a thrift shop. I made my mental note and headed back once everyone was happily back on the beach. These are a few of the items I picked up once I figured out how to get back to the shop (3 trips around a very big block) and they were actually open (my first try to get in was not good - CLOSED). The hours were a little erratic but worth it. These tea cups/saucers are just amazing ~ I can never find stuff like this at home. Im also pretty sure the wire rack is for CD's but they wouldn't look as pretty as the saucers do. Most will end up on FrenchBleu's site but hopefully no one will blame me if I hold off on the gorgeous frame ~ you know I have that frame fetish thing going on still.
