Sometimes Things Just Fall Into Place

My daughter is hosting a huge party and has chosen a cherry blossom theme for it. I have been searching thrift shops for things with cherry blossoms. I already had this Japanese enameled vase covered in cherry blossoms, so I filled it with cherry blossom branches and she can use this as a decoration.

I found this porcelain branch covered with blossoms and made a totem to be used as a centerpiece.

Yesterday I went to a shop that I had not visited in a while and found this great big basket for 2.00!

And I found this darling robin to put on my potting table.

I found another porcelain flower basket to use in a totem.

On a high shelf in the corner of the store I found these. This little lady is actually holding a cherry blossom branch.

They still have the original tags saying they are from Okinawa.

These will be perfect placed around the room. Each doll cost $1.99!

Look at this wonderful enamel vase covered in blossoms.

I adore this cute little couple.

This jade box will hold calling cards and it's lid is covered in cherry blossoms. Who would ever think there was so much of this stuff out there?
