Treasures I Found

Hello, Prim Friends....
I would like to thank you all for the
nice compliments on my bathroom make
over......I really do appreciate them all!

I have been getting things, here and there
and I haven't posted them, so here are
some of the things I have gotten in the
last couple months at antiques malls,
garage sales, or at an auction.  I got this
old kitchen scale at an auction, last
weekend...A lot of the paint fell off
when I cleaned it up, oh well, it makes
it more prim!

I also got this basket, below with material
and sewing supplies in it. I think I am going
to paint it black and rub some stain on it.

I got this material and lamp in a GW store
in Texas, the last time I was down there. I
think there is 5 yards of material. I only got
the lamp for the top, to put on a fruit jar...
I don't really need it, but it was cheap, so I
couldn't pass it up.....

I bought this old box at a fleamarket and
the wooden tray, I got in an antique mall,
along with the rooster....Why I bought him,
I don't know for sure, since I don't collect
them.....I think it was because he looks like
a great piece of folkart.....I need to find a
place to put him....We went to some sales,
today and got several items, so I will share
them with you another time.  I just missed
a huge wooden bowl today, dang...

Well, that is it for tonight, I hope you all
are safe, from the storms, they sure went
through here, last night!

Thanks for stopping by, my friends...

  5. Nice finds! I love that scale! I think that basket would look great painted black then rubbed down. I can never find material at a GW, TS, or yard sale. I guess people around here like their fabric too much. Lol! It's a good thing I get mine so cheap at Hobby Lobby with my coupon and discount. I also love all things wooden... the tray and the box are neat! I know I've said it before but I really like your painted bowls inside the oblong bowl. They are prim wonderful!

    I enjoyed looking at your great finds. I finally get to go thrifting this weekend. I am so excited and ready for Friday morning to be here!!


I love reading your comments, it makes my day!
Please stop by often.
