Tweeking Thrifted Treasures

First church sale for us this season. 
Love church sales. Love them.
Added more dried hydrangea (see Front Porch Post) to some of my finds.
Dried the hydrangea in the cone juicer (they are now 'one') and balanced the bouquet in a vintage bowl. Such wonderful muted colors. The 'find' was the board with You are my Sunshine.
wait, there is more...
Vintage crochet BREAD tray doily.
These are the last of the sweet peas and most likely the last Dahlia too. The 'finds' were the metal basket covered flower frog, the silver plate teapot and the tiered sweets server. Used the frog to tweek my Autumn bouquet.
Just thought I would show 'how' I used the frog.
