I hope everyone is staying cool in this crazy hot weather ~ I know I've been enjoying our Central Air! I do venture outside, but ONLY for a very short time.
Today I thought I would share with you some wonderful treasures I've found over the past week or so, at some of my favorite thrift stores and Antique Mall.
First up are these 2 items that I purchased today at a local Antique Mall in a neighboring town ~ the sweet mirror is my favorite, as I've been wanting one of these Venetian style mirrors for a while, but depending on the size, they can be a bit pricey ~ this one wasn't bad at $14. And the 4 plates were a good buy at $10 for all 4. They're not antique, or vintage, so was a bit surprised to find them at the Antique store, but I just fell in love with the detail on them, and the pretty soft blue color.
Here is a close-up of the mirror.
Next up are some things that I have found at one of our local Goodwill stores, and a local Consignment shoppe... first is this sweet glass bottle with stopper...I'm thinking of embellishing it with some vintage millinery roses and ribbons.
Here we have a sweet frame, which I have already painted white. The photo is of my paternal Grandfather's second to youngest sister.
This 3-tier metal basket. Didn't have to do a thing with it, as it was already painted white.
This is one of my favorite frames to find ~ love the details on it, and of course, already painted it white. It didn't come with any glass in it, which is okay, I can just display it as is. It's made of metal, and is quite heavy.
In this photo you will see another frame that I found and painted white. I love finding these style of frames, as they remind me of lace. This is the largest I have found of this type....I'm on the look - out for just the right print to place inside of it.
The last thing I wanted to show you is one of my newest offerings that I have currently listed on Ebay. Love how this accent pillow turned out, and I even added some dainty vintage lace to the ruffle.
Stay Cool everyone ! Until next time sweet friends.
