So did I tell you my Mom is visiting for a few weeks? She lives in Indiana and usually makes it out about twice a year. Her, my sister and I (did I say that right?) went treasure hunting this week. I thought I'd I'd show you some of my finds.
This is only part of it. My favorite thing I picked up I will show you this week. I have already painted it I just need to wax it. I was so excited about it I made my mom stand by my pile so no one would take it while I kept shopping. (Thanks Mom!)
At that same Garage Sale I picked up a couple feed sacks for a buck a piece and the storage box with the latch. It is covered in a woven material and I think I will white wash it to give it a beachy vibe.
The side table is Drexel and in perfect condition. I will be painting it with Chalk Paint in French Linen.
The little cloche is super cute it is smaller than a cheese dome. Do you see all that yumminess behind it? The most exciting of them all was this plate. It's hard to see but it has beautiful crazing. I have been trying to explain what kind of white dishes I am looking for to my Mom and sister and when I showed them the plate they were both like, Oh. That's what you like. They aren't feeling it. That's OK, more for me. The plate was 99 cents with 50% off because the sticker color was on sale.
I held it close all the way to check out. The gravy boat was also 99 cents. no chips, perfect condition. I am no expert on ironstone. Or rather what is or isn't ironstone. I like it all & if it's pretty I buy it.
& I can't forget I found some old keys. I love treasure hunting with my Mom & Sis. We had a great time.
Oh and last thing I have some fun news I am renting the window at Abundance Vintage for the month of August! I'm excited! I have tons of projects going so there will be lots to share. A few builds from scratch, a few refurbishes and a few that are a combination of both. Wish me luck!
So have you found any treasures lately?
