back to Camp...the Hudson Valley is on the chandie!

i have been "popping in" to visit Meagan Camp's blog  for almost a  year. i found her photography
featured in issue five of  RUE Magazine.
 when she photographed her shop  t e l e s c a, my eyes zeroed in on the
vintage fruit baskets. there happened to be a few available in her Etsy shoppe.

i wasn't quite certain what i was going to do with the little Hudson Valley treasures.
i just knew that i wanted some.

last Friday the baskets arrived,

along with a bit of history

 from their original home.


pieces of a past,

on the chandie, just in time for Mother's Day.
just add vintage fruit baskets, peat pots with 
white hydrangea, bay leaf and water daily,

  1. you are very creative! It looks lovely!


  2. Good morning...how very pretty....and creative. I LOVE the history cards, too. Have a beautiful day. Love to you!

  3. Your chandie. . . is enchantingly adorable. What a beautiful idea. I have not seen those little fruit baskets for so long. I do remember when they were replaced by the little green plastic ones, and now the clear plastic ( I suppose someday the clear plastic that we get today, will be vintage LOL). Seem laughable, but true. I am so glad that I found your lovely blog and I am looking forward to following your talented journey. Your newest follower, Connie :)
    Please accept my warm invitation to visit and hopefully to follow me, too. I am looking forward to following your delightful artful journey.

  4. What a cute idea! Thank you for sharing, Lynne!

  5. Oh how clever you are! I love your chandie. It's the most unique and awesome chandie ever!

  6. Oh my goodness, those are wonderful! I might have to follow your lead and get myself some :)

  7. This is such a clever reuse of the berry baskets. They look so lovely embracing the lovely blooms you've bestowed upon them...as they dangle from your chandie. ;)

    I would love to have you join me for my weekly linky party - Time Travel Thursday. Your creativity would be a welcome addition. Hope to see you there! The link goes up tonight, usually by 9PM EST. ;)

  8. Wow! SO great that you got the history! What a darling idea! Looks just lovely!

  9. Oh my goodness, the green on some of those baskets is too much, isn't it? I am in love with the little tags of history. That is a huge bonus! I found you at Time Travel Thursday and hope you'll stop and see me at Quirky Vistas!


  10. That is so unique! It is adorable.

  11. I would love to see you create some mother's day gifts. I'm sure you would design something beautiful and creative.
