Three of anything makes a collection, right?
These antique insulators were picked up at one of my favorite thrift stores, all at different times. The smallest one has a star on it, The one in back has "Whitall Tatum Co. No. 1 Made in USA" and the large one on the left reads, "W. Brookefield 45 Cliff St. NY Pat. Jan 25th 1870."
While they may not be worth more than a few dollars each, I bought them for less than a dollar each, and I just think they're charming!
This week, due to my late party, we had a small gathering. Nonetheless, I had a hard time only picking three very wonderful features!
Have a look at the goodies this week:
Oooh, MAMA! Could you just eat this with a spoon? Joy at A Vintage Green shared this vintage beauty and plenty of other authentically chippy paint finishes that will charm your flip flops off!
Deanie's Stash shared a one-of-a-kind handmade trunk, along with a wide variety of other thrifted pieces. LOVE the history of this one! I think I may be developing a strong attraction to trunks - this is the second week in a row I've been charmed by one.
Julie from Renaissance Mermaid caught my eye with this charming green vignette in her summer sun porch. LOVE it!
I'm totally loving the bits of green in her otherwise neutral sun porch. We all need a sun porch, methinks.
I'm giddy just thinking about what kinds of treasures you junk detectives have ferreted out this week! I seriously LOVE to go through your links - and I am happy for you and your finds...only slightly envious at times...I promise. : )

Word for the Day:
24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works,
25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some,
but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
