Patina Green and a Reveal

Saturday we dropped by Patina Green to see all their wonderful European treasures that they had brought back, but before I show you what we saw, I want to reveal a surprise.  My new blog, Discarded Forlorn, was started a while back because this is the direction that I am wanting to take new business to.  I've had the blog Garden Antqs Vintage for a while now and felt that with the direction of my new business I should start a new blog.  I hadn't kept it a secret for any reason other than I was trying to discover something new and since I wasn't sure what direction I wanted at the time, felt I had to discover what it was exactly that I was wanting to do with my new business.  I hope if you've stopped by before that you are enjoying the direction that this blog is taking.  If you've never visited please take a moment to see some of my previous posts.  I've really enjoyed discovering something new and hope you'll enjoy the new journey with me.

Now, getting back to Patina Green, there were such beautiful things in every corner. There was also a house full of people everywhere.  We had to wait in line, not long, for our lunch and it's a good thing we got there when we did because we got the last sandwich.  The salad was just so fresh and wonderful and the dressing was just awesome.  It was so relaxing to sit and eat our lunch and just soak up the shop.

This is one of first things that caught my eye, look at all the wonderful treasures here:

This garden piece made such a statement.  I could see it on a beautiful wall in a garden surrounded by beautiful plants.

The three planters were so pretty displayed across the table.

More lovely things.

Please visit my other blog, Garden Antqs Vintage, if you haven't stopped by before.  Hope you enjoyed the visit and will continue with me through my new journey.
