kitchen decor - ball jars and vintage globes

While on our little getaway the hubby and I managed to get some antiquing time in :) I love antiques and thrift shops so I was in heaven when we found this old school house turned antique shop. It was huge and they had sooo much stuff. 
I found a wonderful vintage globe for the kitchen and some more ball jars (you can never have enough ball jars). I already had a vintage scale and ball jars in my kitchen but now the scale has been replace by the new globe. I haven't figured out what to do with the new ball jars yet but I am sure I will find a lovely new home for them. They are just great to put flowers in, so Spring please hurry up :) 
The framed print is by Katie Daisy, a wonderfully talented Artist and you can find her here. I just ordered some more prints for the nursery and can't wait to get them and hang them up. Absolutely love her work!
I also bought a cute new mug that matches my kitchen at another shop we stopped at. Handmade rocks!

Have you noticed my obsession with turquoise yet ;) 

chai tea is gonna taste yummy out of this lovely mug
