A Little Bit of Springtime

A Little Bit of Springtime

Today I was cleaning up some branches after a harsh rain storm in the morning. The sun was out and it was lovely. I have two Bougainvillea bushes in pots. They belong to the four o' clock family. I love the plant but not a big fan since it has these killer thorns. I keep them in pots so they don't go crazy.  I thought I would bring in a couple of stems for the table.

The covering on the table is like a quilt, except for the fact that it is not quilted. It has two different fabrics, one on the front and one on the back. It also has binding. Not sure what it was intended for, but it is pretty for this time of year.

The marbles in this milk jar were mine as a child. We use to play marbles a lot when I was little. I don't think they would even know what that game was these days. Did anyone else play marbles when they were young?

The bottles that the flowers are in are from the 19th century - Buchan Portobello Edinburgh, Scotland. 
Although they were used mainly for ginger beer, sometimes stout and heavy ales were also sold in them.

I actually have 4 of them but I can only find two of them. I found then in Vermont one year and put them 
away and when we moved, somehow they got separated. I know one of these days, I will find the other two.

I hope you enjoyed a little springtime and a look at some vintage items.
