~ Happy Monday! ~
I am allowed to say that since it's summer, right? ;-)
This past Saturday, I finally got the chance to go garage sale-ing again!
Mr W was home on Saturday morning, so he was able to stay with the little guy while I got up and out, bright and early!
I tell you what...I really miss the thrill of the hunt! I had a GREAT time, and, I hit the JACKPOT baby!
Lots of fun stuff, so here we go...
I got this sweet little antique piece for the top of my stairs. I believe that it's English, but I'm not positive. The woman was asking $75, but I was able to talk her down to $50. I have been looking for something like this to put at the top of my stairs for YEARS now, so I am really happy with this!
It needs a bit of TLC, possibly even a re-finishing, but for now it will stay as is, since I have so many other projects in the works.
I just love the detail, and the hardware on it!
I also found a pretty silver urn with handles for only $2, and a piece of ironstone for $5. It's missing it's lid, but that doesn't bother me at all! I love the shape and the pretty the handles!
I also found a very unusual frame, with a signed floral oil painting. I am NOT crazy about the painting, so I have other plans for the frame.
Seriously!!?? Is this not SO cool? I love that patina! The lady had $35 on it, but I only paid $24! :-)
Again, wait and see what I do with the frame! I will post about it later this week!
I may donate the painting to one of my friends, if anyone wants it.
I love the bottle, and the graphics on the label as well.
I also picked up a vintage scrabble game, strictly for the tiles. I got it for $1, and I have no idea what I am going to make with them, but I am loving anything with numbers or letters right now so, we'll see...
I had such a great time out on my scavenger hunt this week!! Stay tuned to see what I do with that frame, and I've already made a couple little changes to the antique dresser at the top of the stairs, so I will be posting about that later this week also.
Hope you have a fantastic week ahead!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
