Treasures I Found

Hello every one, I thought I would make a
quick post to show you all some things I have
found on my hunts....I got these 3 graniteware
pie pans at a fleamarket in Michingan when I
was up there last summer. I tell ya I was finding
some stuff, cheap! I saw one of these in an antique
mall, last week, for $12.....I got the three of them
for $7.....One had $2.50 on it and I paid $2 and the
other two I got for $5.....They are in great shape, only
have some tiny chips and the brown on one of them
might come off with an SOS pad. I even got a big crock
that I wrapped in bubble wrap, then I put in a cloth
tote bag and carried it on the plane....I put it under
the seat in front of me, not overhead....I didn't want
it to fall out on my head! I love the little fleamarket
that we go to while there, trouble is I am always
finding things I want to get, but can't take on
the plane.....Oh well, guess I didn't need what ever
it was, anyway. I can't remember now, so I guess
it wasn't that important.


I found an old basket at a sale, up in a storage
building at a great price......25 cents! The metal
tin punch is open at the bottom, so I thought I would
paint it and make a hanging light for over my kitchen
sink.....I can't find my hanging light kit, so I will have
to buy another one.....I thought I would also add some
links to the chandelier, in the dining room, to make it
hang a little lower.
Well, I better get back to work on this room, I haven't
gotten much done, today....As soon as I get it done, I will
post some pictures....Then I will be able to paint and sew
and I won't have to take stuff out to the dining room to
work....Yippee!
Until next time~

  6. Hey, you were up here this summer!?
    I rarely find anything great, or inexpensive. I think I do better in the summer at yard sales.
    Okay, I'll let you get back to work on your room project!
