Busy Bees

I found this sweet little honey pot this weekend while out thrifting.
 









 
 It is one of those unexpected treasures that brings delight
the minute you see it.  It has a sweetness about it that I find 
beyond description.  Maybe it is it's soft pastel green color, or
maybe it is because I used to be a beekeeper and will always 
have a fondness for bee items.
I love it paired with this delicate linen I also found this weekend.











I set a sweet table for myself with an inexpensive basket weave plate
matching in color, my mismatched vintage silverware and a lovely
single goblet I also found this weekend.










I added this little set of vintage bee salt and pepper shakers given to
me years ago by a friend.  Don't they make sweet companions?











The honey pot is missing it's lid, but also makes a delightful small
pitcher or vase.











And so I'm enjoying a meal with my pretty springtime
thrifting finds.

It is totally cute. Plus honey is so healthy and we need reminders to eat a little now and again.

I love your honeypot and bee shakers...I love anything with bees on it and just started collecting honeypots last year. I love the soft colors of your sweet little find..and those shakers are adorable...I have a few of my honeypots in my post this week too! They just seem to say..spring is on the way!

I'm joining you from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia. Love what you put together. That honey pot is so pretty all by itself but is obviously a treasure for you because you have so many other things it goes with. Thanks for sharing.

What wonderful finds! Bees are IN right now! At least they are at Home Goods. I swear, you must have a lot of storage for all the lovely collections you've amassed over the years.
