Treasures

Its been kinda slow finding treasures lately... Here are a few weekends worth of treasure hunting combined~ The only time I pass up seashells is if they are priced to high. I paid $3 for all of this loot below. The little wooden bucket doesn't have its lid... but that's alright. The weathered patina this little bucket has is so lovely--- I just might keep it inside my house.
 I find a lot of wooden things relatively cheap. I guess there isn't a huge demand for wooden decor anymore. *wink* (was there ever?)
These were $1.00 each. The original price tag on the two large diamond shaped wooden carvings were $39.99 each...  
More seashells, rocks and pirate stuff.... ok, its all pirate stuff....
I've been adding a lot of Japanese items to my pirate yard too... This little tea pot is charming with its little glass inserts. There is a little damage to it, but it just adds character right? The little fella behind the tea pot looks stunning now that I've painted him gold.
Brass, trays and other odds and ends....
Lastly, a bunch of jewelry that I picked up for $7.00. I've already pulled apart several of the beaded strands to play around with. The white stone beads I'm planning on wire wrapping--- once I feel like doing that again... *yawn*
big hugs,

Nice stash! Of course the bling is my favorite. Lots of sales around this time of the year, but so far have not been to any this Fall. Actually have not been to any in some time. :(

Well, I for one love wood pieces and would have bought all of those and put them in my own home. Really great finds!

Wow some great deals on those finds, I don't know what it is but I like wooden spoons, weird I know. Looks like some fun can be had with all the jewelry too!

I'm always looking for jewellery to take apart, and unique wooden pieces always seem to call out my name! Great finds!

You got a lot of really great stuff! I'm going to Texas Antique Week at Round Top this Thursday. And to Marburger Farms show. You would really love it!

You made quite the haul! I love the shells. I'm always on the lookout for nice ones! And quite nice things in the jewelry! Looks like you had a ton of fun along the way, too!
