Blooming-ly Good Design

I forgot to mention in my post yesterday about JEGs' yard sale find this past weekend. He got this great vintage scale for $1.

When JEGs placed it on the counter I loved it more then I thought I would. Originally I was going to sand it down and repaint it, but now I'm kinda digging it's busted-up vibe. And honestly, who doesn't love a sundial on top of their scale?

Doesn't it look so kitchy in the corner? Love it with my mothers old fuit bowl. Of course the peanut butter crackers really adds a certian je ne sais quois to the room. hehe.
While I was down the shore, I snipped a couple of my Great Aunt Ola's beautiful hydrangeas to bring back to my apartment. I added some pretty pink blooms on my bedside table:

Next I switched out some yellow daisies for these deep purple flowers on the self above the buffet:

I think they look so pretty in the white vase, and I love it next to my parents' wedding photo.
The daisies were still in good shape, so I didn't want to throw them out. I was running out of vases, so I grabbed one of the crystal goblets from my yard sale finds, cut the stems down, and voila! A pretty posies by the sink:

Stay tuned kids... in keeping with my beach-themed week, we are house crashing the shore house!
Always and Forever,
