Fabulous Finds!








Oh... What a hot and humid month it has been....almost too hot to hunt for treasures! Sometimes you just have to sacrifice the uncomfortable weather to find the things that you love! Yet again...It is an obsession! You find stuff on friday and saturday..spend all week cleaning, painting, arranging and then enjoy looking at all the pretty stuff you bought...and then it is friday again, time to start the treasure hunt all over again~This is just some of my finds for the past two weeks!  One of my favorite finds is the vintage white beadboard radiator cover, a 20.00 find... displayed with ornament filled jars, small glass cloche, seashells, old corbels, which I love too, a steal for 20.00 for the pair! I found two pair of those! Check out these adorable concrete statues, found a pair of those with the pedestals for only 30.00! I love old wicker flower baskets, especially the tall ones that stand on the floor, I found this one at an antique mall for only 40.00! Lately, I have had a passion for vintage silver...love these two large trays, found last week for 10.00 for the pair, (Trays are awesome for grouping little treasures together to make a statement) along with the trays came this huge ironstone platter for 5.00! There are great treasures out there to be found and at fabulous prices! I hope you all have a happy junkin trail this weekend!

Enjoy the pictures, and have a wonderful weekend!

Hi Cheryl! Thanks for stopping by my blog...I'm rather new to the blog world and have been so amazed at all the wonderful people that I have met. Your blog is just beautiful and I'm so jealous of all the great stuff you find.....and the prices!! There's no way I'd find those great things so cheap in California!! Sandi
