Weekend Treasures

This past weekend I went treasure hunting and I wasn't disappointed! I found a lot of interesting things... A few oriental things, along with some fun bar mugs....
 I'm loving the two crystal candlesticks and the silver trays... I might paint the metal white on the candlesticks  and bring them inside.... no-no-no.... I must focus on the pirate yard!
 This ships bell was a must have.... its super loud and will be perfect to get every ones attention.
 Three sea shell candle sticks and the biggest, thickest abalone shell I have ever come across....
 Two huge crates that were only $4.00 for the two. *score*
 This pully has a rounded front and backside, I've never seen one like this before so I'm happy to add it to my collection...
I bought a lot of old bottles too. The ones in the plastic bag I am going to alter rather than put out in my yard! 

I got some treasures from my mom too.... loving the little tea pot! The brass planters will soon be filled with dabloons and strands of pearls.
 
Lastly, I picked up two bar stools for the pirate bar. *GASP* Stunning right?
 
I spotted these on the last row at the swap meet.... can you believe no one snatched them up before I got them? *wink*

 Guess what I paid for the pair.... guess, come on---

 just FIVE BUCKS! *score!* I am going to stain them and add some rope to the top and bottom, maybe even the middle--- then of course add some new fabric to the seat. What a great treasure filled weekend!
big hugs,

Thanks for coming by the blog and leaving a sweet comment...yes, I made the feeder. Cup and saucer and E6000 glue. They hold up great even with the squirrel hanging from them.
