Bigger than a Bread Box?

A trip to NC isn’t complete without a stop at

Honeysuckle Hollow!

I’ve been shopping there for over 20 years and can look around my house and see things I’ve bought there.

It’s always fun to visit with Jan. She’s a Florida girl too and loves Florida décor and vintage treasures.

So what did I buy?

Oh, I was glad hubby was with me to help me decide if we had room to take this back to Florida. I’ve always wanted one but don’t want to ride back on the top of the Subaru like Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies! (It’s bigger than it looks in this photo! It’s 20 inches tall)

Isn’t it a beauty?

Of course now, I’ll be looking for some cute little pots and pans for my dollies.

I’m joining the Vintage Inspiration Link party HERE!

I bought one of these crowns, too!

Thanks Jan! See you next time!

How cute Diane!! I saw a vintage doll house that I had to restrain myself from purchasing. It was just like on I had as a little girl. So when do you head back to Florida?

Jacqueline said...

OH, you were so lucky to have the room to take it back! I love it - Suzy Homemaker!!
What pretty crowns too. I would have nabbed one of those too.

Cranberry Morning said...

That is a cute one! And so glad you won't have to ride on top of the car, although it would certainly have made a fun blog post, Diane. ;-)

Oh, I love it Diane. I might even have ridden on the top of the car to get that back home with me. xo Laura

What fun! You know I love toy appliances. Just think of all the fun you'll have collecting mini things for your cute stove.

Debby Ray said...

I never had one growing up either...looks like it's in really great condition! Have fun playing...lol!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Diane, looks like a fun time at Honeysuckle Hollow. You sure found some great treasure but the Suzy Homemaker stove is priceless. I love it and it will be darling set up with your dolls. The vision of you riding back home on top of your Subaru just cracked me up!!

Have fun and Happy September.
Thank you also for stopping by my spotlight feature at Junk Chic Cottage. You blessed me with your kind comment.
Sending hugs sweet friend.

Great choice, Diane. Your dollies will love, love it. And thanks for you sweet comment on my mosaic post. Love that store. I am not always a yellow person, but that display and the photo you took make me want to do a yellow corner or yellow something.

Diane said...

Way too cute! Love the color. Looks like it's in good shape too.

Elizabeth said...

Oh I love it ! I like the yellow dishes as well, think i would have had to have those!

Stephanie said...

So much pretty items! I can see why you go there often :)

Hugs to you, my friend!

It looks and sounds like you had a lot of fun. That stove brings back memories of playing house when I was a kid. I had a teenie, tiny little stove but always wanted something bigger like that. Very cute! I love the crowns you found too.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

That is just so cute! I'm so glad you can get it home and not ride on top of the car..(LOL) I'm in love with those yellow dishes and yellow isn't my fav color at all. Looks like a great place to shop!
hugs,
Linda

Oh my gosh, I LOVE THOSE CROWNS! The picture frames are so pretty too. I always smile when I see all the treasures that you get. It's so fun to bring home goodies, isn't it?

Love the color of that Suzy Homemaker.

FYI - I started working on my vintage crib today. I decided to stain it - awesome!!

I would go crazy in this shop, so many pretty vintage treasures. I love your Suzy Homemaker oven/stove and the color is so yummy. Happy to hear it didn't have to ride home on the top of your car. Thanks so much for sharing at the Vintage Inspiration Party.

Shug said...

Be still my fainting heart!! I absolutely would love to visit some of these places...So many wonderful things that I would love to load up on a trailer and bring home!! Girl..you should have just loaded that car down and been a hillbilly!!

GardenOfDaisies said...

Oh my, I love that sweet little green stove!! I would have wrestled you to the ground for that. :-) Can't wait to see what you find for pots and pans.

Jen Vandervoort said...

How you managed to leave without the entire store is beyond me...wow.

Lovely things to look at, and to take with you.

I just saw one of those ovens at the local antique store and I was surprised how big it was too! I don't remember them being so tall. It's very cute!

Oh, I love it! I have a thing for vintage stoves, and a vintage toy stove is even better! In my favy color, turquoise, too! Can't wait to see what little pots and pans you get for it. My daughter would be coveting those crowns - she has a collection. What a great place to shop! xo Karen

So many cute things -- how on earth could you ever be expected to leave anything behind, especially that adorable little stove. It's in such pristine condition! Can't wait to see what you do with it.

How fun! I wish I had known about that shop when we had our vacation over there two years ago.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

OOhhhhh...but you KNOW how much I love toys! Just so cute...you are soooo lucky, Diane!!

Becky@Beyond The Picket Fence said...

That is the exact oven my sister and I had as kids. I actually had it up until about 5 years ago when it met in an untimely accident with a basketball. So many happy memories!

looks like you had a real fun time. Cool what you got.

Cookie said...

I'd have had those cheery yellow dishes too! Lovely finds! And, yes, I've had too many of those anonymous comments too. Annoying.
