Multi~tasking @ FBV

I am heading over to Cape Cod for a few days so I'm doing all my party linking in this one post. I guess I can multi-task after all :) 

For White Wednesday ~ I can feel myself sliding into a somewhat more autumn mode of styling. I recently picked up these very cool vintage German stoneware wine bottles at the flea. I can already picture them with bittersweet branches decorating them on a mantel. Also, a bit of Summer still left with this pretty necklace I picked up in Brimfield last May.

Vintage Black Friday ~ I have missed you. I am so glad to jump in on this party again with these 2 super nice metal items. The first is a tissue holder. Its not just any tissue holder, this one can hang on the wall and the top slides off. The hand painted flowers are ok, but I would have been just as happy (happier even) if it was all black.  Also, this neat tin box is called a Silent Butler. It was used by a hostess to clean up table crumbs, ashtrays, etc as she flitted about her room after guests. Oh yes, I can just picture myself doing that. 

Flea Market Friday ~ Just love this new party........Hi Kecia!

Silver Sunday is showing these awesome display items that I picked up at the Overstocks shop. Aren't they pretty. Look at all the all shiny prisms and the rosettes ~ I just love them. I have yet to list them at the shop ~ but thats where they are heading ~ no Im not crazy ~ I bought a set for myself as well. I'm already looking forward to using them for Halloween table decorating ~ think black candles and cupcakes!

Please check out all these Super Fun & Fabulous Parties and say HI to the wonderfully creative gals that host them. The links are all located on my sidebar ~ Have a great week everyone. I hope to have some nice beachy photos to post next week ~ pray it doesn't rain or I'll be stuck in a 2 bedroom cottage with 3 winey kids and a stinky wet German Shepherd.

  1. Dee you are funny. Have a wonderful vacation. I love the necklace, very pretty. Did you know you can schedule your posts to publish on future dates even if you are not at the computer. It has helped me while I was on vacation. You just have to go to the bottom of the post where it says post options, click on that and it will bring up a box where you can schedule the time and date of the post to publish. Have fun.

  2. Oh my goodness...what a nice blog you have!! LOVE all your pictures! Great treasures!!!

  3. Wow you can multi task:) Love the silver sparklies. Have fun at the Cape. I heard the weekend is supposed to be gorgeous. 90's here today. My poor garden.

  16. Good job multi-tasking, Dee :) So many pretty items. Since I'm visiting for VBF, I'll mention the cool black tissue box cover and the silent butler. You don't see those coming and going. I like them a lot. I have to mention the pretty glasses you have on the display piece you got from Overstocks. Love 'em - I have an aqua set I'm nuts over ;)
    Hope your having a great veecation~

  17. Hi Dee,

    I love the tissue box and the silent butler. I'm sure the silent butler was in and used at my grandmother's home. :0)

    The silver stuff from your overstock shop is fabulous! Black candles and cupcakes will be perfect.

    Happy Day,
    Stephanie ♥
