Some Days It's Just That Good

Oh, there's something wonderful about spending time at a few thrift stores and finding things that you didn't even know that you had to have. I had way too much fun on Saturday! I don't remember the last time I found this many treasures in one day.
Take a look!
My dining room table almost looks like
a display in an upscale boutique.
Corbels, and candles, and glassware. Oh my!A cute little chair begging to be painted black.
Ironstone from England too!
White dishes, cream frame, silver candlesticks
and a metal pedestal.
Aahhh! Who needs new when used looks this good!


HIGH FIVES FOR UNDER FIVE MINUTES!
Oh ladies! I'm so proud of you! Some of you took five minutes to make the project I posted on Friday. I love to see how you take my ideas and personalize them.
Go visit Maranda and Mrs. H, and leave them a sweet comment.
If you want to show off your project, just leave me a note and I'll add your link too.

Buying second hand is good for the environment ya know! (that's what I keep telling myself).

Have a great day! :)

Wow you did so great. I love all of it, especially the metal pedestal. Can't wait to see where you put everything. I am in need of a good thrift shop adventure, but that will need to wait until the kiddos get back to school.

Woa! You hit the thrifty jackpot! I'm drooling over your finds! Good for you. I can't wait to see what you do with the precious chair. I bought the supplies for my 5 Minute project. I hope to get it done by Wednesday. I even bought a dress pattern and I'm going to attempt my first dress for Ruby Jane. That one has an undetermined finish time. Ha! I'll be sure to let you know about the plaque. Have a great evening!
