Thrifted Treasures~

Here are some recent things I picked up. This Shabby Chic quilt and two matching pillow shams were only $8 bucks.Here is an assortment of neat-o things... a silver heart dish $3, the gold wooden box was $2, the hammered silver tray was only $2, the little saucer was .50cents and the two flower bouquets were $3 bucks for both.
This potting table with the tin top was only $10. I'm going to stain the whole thing, won't it look fabulous? I've always wanted one! I could use it as an outdoor (soda) bar or set it beside the b.b.q or just set super caute things on it!..... neat-neat-neat!Drum roll please....... lookie what I got for FIVE DOLLARS~ Ohhhhhhhhhh M Geeeeeeeeeeee!
I am sooooooooo painting this white! Won't it be fabulous filled with quilts or books... the ideas are endless! This shopping cart is so neat, it even folds flat. I lurve it!!

Ok, you need to tell me where in California you live! In my neck of the woods (South Orange County) there's no WAY I could find deals like that at my local vintage flea markets. Wow, you hit pay dirt girlfriend! Good job.

LOVE all the finds. We love to go treasure hunting on the weekends. Our seven year old has been going since he was about three months old.

I truly believe that one man's junk is another ones treasure. Thanks for sharing these wonderful finds.

Hugs,
