White Wednesday and Flower Frogs

May 4, 2011

The other day I stumbled upon this fabulous two-piece flower frog at Club G.W.  At least I think that's what it is. (That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)  Not sure what the heck a flower frog is?  Try here.


I'll bare all here and tell you that I used to collect flower frogs ~ weird, I know!  But I discovered them way back when, when Mr. CBD and I would frequent flea markets and antique stores with a mission ~ to find flower frogs, salt cellars  and McCoy pottery.   He probably could have cared less, but he helped me hunt for my collectibles anyway.  These junking adventures took place B.C., or "Before Children."  But I was so pleasantly surprised to find this beauty that I had to stop and take notice.  And for $1.99 (not a typo) I kind of had to say yes!



It's quite  heavy sturdy, and a bit chippy (yay!) so I'm thrilled.  And with a little spring inspiration she's ready to roll.





Since it IS White Wednesday and all I had to add my other white beauty ~ a white, chippy Club G.W. flower urn.  I think it was, like, $2.99.  They go well together, don't you think?  Another heavy sturdy piece that I will enjoy for a long time to come.  (Hydrangeas never go out of style!)



I'm probably pretty late to the party, but that shouldn't stop you from going on over there and saying howdy to some of those fabulous bloggers who've also shared their White Wednesday goodies. 

Yup........flower frogs.  Look it up!


I'll be linking up here:

Nice find and great price. I have never seen one like that before.
Thanks for stopping by. Sounds like you really had a bad situation with the flooding. I just can't imagine.
Enjoy your day.

Very pretty! I love flower frogs. Unfortunately for me, I think I waited too long before my interest peeked. They have become harder to find and more expensive. Love Club G.W. Funny!

Not gonna lie. Coveting your flower frog! I only find really ugly "mid century" ( the nice terms for 60s / 70's tacky) stuff. I love this and am so glad you linked it up at my "BFF" party! Happy Mother's Day weekend my friend!
