We were old and dusty!

But now look how sparkly and sweet we are!


I’ve used Bon Ami...’hasn’t scratched yet’...


for over 40 years...


good for bunnies AND chicks!


OH...and ducks! heehee!


I went for a little drive (on my own) one day to Dunnellon.


It’s not far from where I live and has a really neat downtown!

I lucked out....they were having an Antique fair!

Look at this little JELLO mold I bought!

(I added the grass and chick!)


I also wandered through room after room of Grumbles house


and found some neat things to add to my ‘decor’!


(and bars of my favorite Milk soap..not pictured!)


Hope you’re enjoying Spring decorating!


My chicks and bunnies are multiplying!


Just a few more close ups with the Florida sun shining in...




I’m joining Suzanne for Vintage Thingy Thursday ,


Brambleberry Cottage for Time Travel Thursday


and  Linda at the Junkin’ Finds Friday Party!


VISIT THEM and HAVE FUN !!! island

Jemm said...

Love your figurines! So cute. I've never used that cleaner. I'll have to check into it. I love the old bunny book. Very pretty.

Vee said...

Great tip about the Bon Ami. You certainly have added to your collection and each little bunny and chick is a sweet addition. Simple enough to bring a little joy... As John says, "flea markets are cheap therapy."

How cute! Looks like a great day Diane.

Donnie said...

We've been to Dunnellon but never seem to shop around just go to the boat rides. Looks like a lovely place.

Freckled Hen said...

Your decorations are so pretty, the Bunny Brown book looks perfect for an afternoon read. And your sunny skies look perfect far an afternoon drive!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Of course I love that VINTAGE Jello mold, but those little duck salt and pepper shakers are just too cute. Love Bon to keep it handy for all those "treasures" that need a little TLC!!!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Brambleberry Cottage said...

Your sweet bunnies and chicks make such wonderful spring decorations. I have real bunnies running all around my farm, but none to decorate with. ;)

Thanks for coming to the party again. I love having you join me for Time Travel Thursday.

Grumbles house looks amazing! I love the Bon Ami chick. :-) All your little chicks and bunnies remind me that it's about time to bring out my Easter things.

Your chicks and bunnies are multiplying indeed! I love the doll in the picture too.

The shells look nice mixed in with your chicks and bunnies! Mixing them didn't even even occur to me, but I love how they go together.

Paula ~ castleandcottagesigns said...

So cute bunnies & chicks! I've never used Bon Ami but I'm thinking I've got alot of stuff I could use it on!! I'll have to pick some up:)

Shellbelle said...

Bunnies, chickies, duckies and seashells! Yes, Toto, we're not in Kansas any more — we're in Florida!!!!!

I absolutely adore that Cast Away painting!

I love Bon Ami and and also Bar Keepers Friend, somethings just can't be improved upon!


Diane said...

Great photos!! I wish I was there!

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

Over run by bunnies and chicks, in a good way though :)

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

A very cute collection, they must have breathed a sigh of relief when they saw you coming. Sales are UP today.

Or have you collected most of that through the years? I love collectors.

The ultimate recyclers.

I read a long time ago something about toxic chemicals, and if I still remember Bon Ami was one of the good ones....

You had a "field"day on your outing. You all ready had and found more really cute vintage things.

KarenHarveyCox said...

I love the name of that store...and all the Spring finds. I love bunnies and chicks. Thanks for the cleaning tip. We had a snowy dusting last night. New England's way of letting us know that Spring is not here just yet. Ahhhh but we can dream can't we, and visit lovely blogs like yours filled with Lavender dreams.


jeanne said...

I think I have to get some Bon Ami. Spring sure has popped up some great chicks, bunnies and ducks. The cute shells top it off. Your many vignettes for spring are terrific. You have a fun blog and it has me dreaming of cute little animals everywhere.
Hugs, Jeanne

I love your bunnies and chicks. So sweet. I think I will have to take a drive over to Dunnellon one day. Looks like a great place to visit.


Kim K. said...
