Hidden Treasures* Pretty Display!!

Today I thought that I would share some decorating ideas! Hidden treasures around my house...I found this shabby advertising display rack in my backyard..gave it a dusting off and had fun decorating it with hidden treasures..what I mean by that is, there are always vintage treasures around the house that you haven't decided just yet where to put them. ~Yard sale decorating..gotta love it! I found the display rack a few years back at a flea market for $5, I needed to use the rack mainly for displaying my vintage barkcloth fabric stash, that I just recently found at a yard sale for way cheap! I added a gorgeous old ironstone pitcher with flowers, a vintage rose hatbox (freebie) with a bowl of vintage buttons sitting on top, added the glass lamp I acquired from a friend..I just added the frilly vintage shade! I just love the vintage prom dress I got at an estate sale for only $2 ! It is so pretty! Lastly just added some great old books, some vintage jewelry! I just love how it all came together!~ Until next time....Hope everyone has a lovely day! :)

Fab Weekend Finds!!

Hi Everyone~I recently had the pleasure of helping my friend Carol. She needed someone with lots of time on their hands and plenty of energy to clean out two of her storage units and two sheds in her backyard. It is always fun helping her. I do all the work in trade for treasures. I helped her set up everything for her to have a huge yard sale! It was lots of fun! We will most likely be doing this again real soon. I can hardly wait!~So here is a list of the treasures I got in trade.(Not all pictured, so many to list, I will save for another post)..I got lots of vintage tablecloths to add to my collection. Here are some of them displayed in my diningroom. I got a few cute baby things, that are so adorable! A really cute headvase, little josef original figurines, lots of rhinestone pins, a great old cement statue fountain, lots of vintage buttons, and a huge box of juice glasses, and the list goes on & on! I will post more of my finds a little later. Oh my....There were so many yard sales was unbelievable! I found a lot of barkcloth curtain panels, which I absolutely love!! A barkcloth covered lampshade, that looks so pretty in my bedroom! Also, a super cute ice cream tall chair, that looks awesome in my sunroom! I love this french style bench I got too for only $20! I plan to recover it with the one of the barkcloth panels that I got, that I have displayed on it! So pretty, don't you think?! So many more treasures that I will save for the next post! Hope you enjoyed the pictures~Hope you have a super nice day! :)
