Weekend Finds & A Little Makeover
If you would like to see other bloggers' treasures too, please visit Southern Hospitality. Ok, so here's more stuff that I bought that I don't need! I apologize for so many pictures, but to me it looks better to see each thing separately, instead of all in a jumble. Most of this came from an estate sale. I felt so bad for the elderly gentleman whose sale it was. He seemed to be running the sale by himself, and he looked very overwhelmed. It was rather depressing. I don't like going to this kind of sale, because usually someone has passed away, and all of their little treasures are there for the world to see, and it's like they just disappeared. Ok, enough of that! I got the pink pottery dish and blue tin, in the picture above, for 25 cents each. I've been wanting one of those tins for a long time.
Lots of pretty perfume bottles. I love that Paris Special one. My daughter grabbed that one as soon as I took the picture!
Another vintage mirror to add to the collection. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to take a picture of a mirror? You've got to pay attention to the view that's reflected in there!
Another floral tin, 25 cents.
I love this wax paper/paper towel/aluminum foil dispenser. I HAVE to find room for this somewhere in the kitchen! The match holder is a cutie too.
I already have a set of S&P shakers with red caps, but they are RED, so I have to have them!
A little grease can. I don't think I'll actually use it though. I usually put my grease in an old jar, and then throw it away. Can you imagine cleaning this thing out when it's full? Yuck!
A little doggy planter, and two tiny planters marked JAPAN.
A white stool just like one I remember my parents having. It's rather modern, but I think it works with the cottage decor.
Two old bowls. The red one is Pyrex. I'm trying to get the whole set, one bowl at a time. Have you seen how much a set goes for at antique stores? $40-$50!!
And finally, this little vintage metal table. It was all rusty, but.......
I painted it Moss Green, and now it holds our TV trays! I hope you found some treasures this weekend too!
