Finds of the Week


The last 2 weeks I have was getting ready for The show ( Mes Amis) and then recovering from it.  I still managed to find some treasures at the Flea Market and some thrift stores.  Here they are:


A Jar of Scrabble letters-so many uses


Pretty detailed plates from England


Colorful watering can


Coat rack that I used the hooks for my 100 year old repurposed headboard


Lovely blanket

Chandelier



Gorgeous old chandelier




I love the gold patina 





Aqua Clock 


Gold candle stick 


Grungy old bistro chair that I painted 


Italian birds and an Ironstone tureen 

Pair of striped lamp shades and a gold piece

Many treasures and projects to take care of!

  4. I love everything you have found the coppery gold chandelier is great, you much show it off if it's a piece you decide to keep and hang.
    I too have a chair thing and I went back through many of your postings with great chairs and that office mirror of yours would be a bedroom mirror for me! It's a wonderfully inspiring piece.
    I am so going to enjoy getting to know you so much better. Now where in California to you live? Southern, central, or Northern :)

    Thank you for taking the time to visit me and my latest treasured find and best of all taking time to grace your beauty with a comment that encourages why I so love the hunt and blogging.
