Antique Mall Finds

I thought I would show you all some
of the treasures I got at a couple 
antique malls...

I got all this, in front of the flowers,
plus two bread boxes to paint on and
a quilt, that I will show on another
post....The wash pan is in excellent
condition!  I love the red/white checked
apron, it has a lot of X's done on it, in

I love this patriotic milk bottle, I
haven't seen one like it, before.
It is a reproduction, limited edition
from 1998 from Promised Land Dairy,
Floresville, TX....Sorry, this isn't a
very good picture....I have some plain
milk bottles around, another with red
 writing that has my maiden name,
spelled a little differently. I also
have an old one that is a cream top
one with a baby face on it....
Times sure have changed on what
you get your milk in....

I loved this kitchen scale because
of the red around the face of it, I am
going to get it cleaned up and put the
strawberries, I got from Gina on it.

I spent too much time waiting on my
hubby in Books A Million, I came across
this black cat and had to get him ;)

If you squeeze the pumpkin on his tail,
he meows and then goes on and one and
sounds like he is ready to fight!  Chum
doesn't care for him, I wonder why?

Well, that is all for today, my friends, I
will show you all the ladder on a later
post, we have it up, but I want to put more
hooks on it and hang more things, plus I
want to paint the light box cover, the same
color as the ladder, this weekend. I was
thinking that chicken wire across the light
box would look neat.

Until next time....

  1. I love the treasures you found..and chicken wire across the light would be can use it to anchor stuff that you hang.;)love that black cat that looks like Chum.;)

  2. I love the scales and sifter.
    I agree with the chicken wire. It will be very nice over the light switch. I'm having a giveaway if you are interested.

  3. Great finds! Love the old scale. Too funny about your kitty not liking the stuffed one. Maybe it will grow on him.


  4. Nice finds, Karen! That dish towel is really neat! I'm looking forward to seeing your ladder and the chicken wire on the light box. Sounds like a great idea!
    Enjoy the rest of your week!

  5. I love the old scale! I keep hoping that someday I will come across one that is reasonable. I can just imagine Chum and the 'other cat'..... maybe you should let him play with him and he will stop getting into other things he isn't suppose too! lol


  6. What great finds Karen, love the scales and the graters!

    Thanks for the tip on darkening the replaced joists, I will get that done this weekend.

    Have a lovely weekend,
    Warm Hugs,


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