Fortuitous Finding

With the anticipation of spring, I'm so anxious to find treasures at garage sales, flea markets, and antique stores. I just had to get out on Sunday for a bit - to quell that urge - to a little town just minutes away and I found a few treasures! Here was my note to my sweet hubby while he was talking on the phone with his sister...

Sadie was just down for a nap, the boys were watching Robin Hood (the 1938 version with Errol Flynn and Olivia deHavilland...LOVE!!!), and Mike was going to be watching basketball/napping. It seemed like the perfect time to slip away for an hour or so.

I found this vintage floral print in one shop and debated about it because the flowers are really more of an orange-pink shade than pink like I've been collecting for Sadie's room. But I decided that I loved it despite being orange-pink and the price was right ($8).

When I got home and held it up in Sadie's room I didn't love it with the other prints. Hmm...still not regretting the decision to buy it but where would I hang it???!!! I went into our upstairs bathroom to get the Windex to clean the glass and ta-da...it looked fabulous in my bathroom! I LOVE it!!! I've found it hard to match or coordinate accessory colors in our bathroom with the walls being a terra-cotta shade. And now...it was a fortuitous finding!!!

Just enough pretty to make my bathroom and home more cozy!
