Vintage Flower Frog

I have become obsessed with vintage flower frogs, thanks to Danavee at The Vintage Grove.  I've been scouring flea markets hoping to find one of my own. 

I wanted one of the really old flower frogs with the sharp, pointy tines.  


Most flower frogs are round and I would have been quite content with a round one.  Of course, when I came across this unusual shaped pewter flower frog at a flea market, my obsession turned to contentment as I paid the $6 price tag and made it my own.


And, just like Danavee, I am using mine, in my kitchen, to display a recipe.  A recipe handwritten by my grandma.  I love having something handwritten by my grandma proudly displayed...inspiring me.


 It's the perfect addition to my kitchen.


Flower frogs.  They aren't just for flowers anymore :)

Linked up and a big thanks to:

  5. Hi, Amy! You need to meet my friend Kim, who write the blog County Line Road. She has collected flower frogs for years. In fact she has collected zillions of things for years. We should go on a field trip to Hinsdale to see her house. You will love it! I will set it up if you are interested!
