weekend finds...

It was a beautiful weekend to kick off our camping season!
The fires were hot.
The company was great.
The jello shots had whipped cream.
The best part is I get to do it all over again next weekend!

I also hit the antique shops in downtown Plymouth.
Here is a peek at what I came home with...
I found these wonderful old flower frogs for my collection...
I like the color of these old safety deposit boxes...
Then there is "The Dollar Princess"...
This book is a musical play chock full of sheet music.  I thought the cover was just so lovely...
I also picked up a few other sheet music booklets...
The blue eyes drew me in on this one...
The song title on this one...
Two more pretty ladies...
While my intent was shopping for new treasures for my booth I think I might have trouble parting with some things...
I love the birds on this tray...
And I am loving the patina and advertising on these two pieces...

I have a new space to fill in my nest and am glad I have some new pieces to play with...
Loving the color...
A perfect old tin for my cottage farmhouse look...
I do know that these two brass lamps dripping in prisms are going into the shop...

I also picked up this shabby old mirror...
With wonderful old wood painted pink...
I am getting ready to part with my rose painting you see in there and I think this mirror will look nice with it on display in my booth.

As always I am so thankful that you stop by and visit with me.
I love to read your comments and am grateful for the friendships that are growing.
I want to welcome my new followers!
My 400 follower giveaway is still in the works.
I have been going back and forth on the prize.
Should I put together some farmhouse inspired treasures or should I give away a gift certificate to Lowes or Home Depot (for some paint for your latest project) or Pottery Barn, Ballard Design or HomeGoods (to help you get that special thing you've been eyeing) or to Anthropologie (just because I think it is a fun store with awesome displays)?
Maybe you have a favorite Etsy shop?
I wish Etsy would offer gift certificates!
Any suggestions?

Have a great day and
God Bless America!!!

I LOVE vintage flower frogs and yours are no exception! Love the moon shaped one. I have a few, but am always on the lookout for more.

I also have a mirror just like yours , but mine is cream color and it hangs in our bathroom.

Looks like you collected some wonderful goodies!!

Wow Sandi! You found so many wonderful treasures. It's great that your work allows you to rotate things in your home. Love it today, but if tomorrow comes around and it doesn't hold the same fascination, to the shop it goes! :) Have a great week. Tammy

The flower frogs are great and those safe deposit boxes, yum. I wish I lived closer, I would love to go camping where there were jello shots and shopping. So fun!

Jane said...

Love, love, love what you found this past weekend. I love flower frogs and the sheet music covers were so pretty. I seem to be into old wood right now so the last two pieces caught my eye too. Great stuff!!

Ooh....the Jello shots sound found. Can't remember the last time I did one of those. You had some amazing finds. I would have trouble parting with a lot of that too.

Take care,

I was reading the comments over at 52 Flea and I saw that you are going to Brimfield next week, so I popped over here to read more about your blog. I love it, and now officially, I am follower number 418. Oh my goodness, I must say, I'm in such good company.
I'm flying from Texas to Brimfield with my best friend and two of my grown daughters for a girls week of junking, eating and laughing.

Smiles,

Carol

Great treasures - I can understand why it would be difficult to part with them! I also wish etsy would offer gift certificates, would solve so many gift giving dilemmas!

NanaDiana said...

What great finds. We have those same crystal laden lamps that belonged to my hubby's grandmother. They are very heavy for their size. Our "globes" are rose colored though...and I saw another set like them years ago that also had the rose colored globes...I wonder if the white ones are replacements or if they came in a choice of colors? What fun to find all those things! Hugs- Diana
