Sunday Auction Finds

Hi Bloggerettes!  I didn't have much luck at the auction on Sunday
afternoon.  But, I did win this vintage victorian lighted make-up mirror.  I think it's kinda sweet looking.  I'm not crazy about gold, but it seems to work on this piece.

I also had the winning bid on this charcoal print.  There was just something about it that I like.  Kinda down home yet with a little air of mystery.  Reminds me of my Mom and Dad's old
farm house.
I think the frame is going to be painted white and shabbied up
a little.  I cannot see a signature on the print but
it might be covered up by the mat.

Gizzie says Hi!

Be back soon with some more good stuff.

Fun finds, really like that print, simple but it makes a statement!

Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Sissie, I think I had that same mirror as a teenager. Wish I had kept it. Love the print and the frame will look great white. We have an weekly auction in Richmond that sells wonderful antique pieces. I try to go as often as possible. Thanks for your sweet note on my yard sale finds. For those dishes I bet I could outrun you!

Gizzie must have looked in the mirror! Great finds.

The mirror is really lovely, I would have snapped that one up as well.

I rather like the art picture...sometimes when we go bargain hunting we come home with nothing. it's warming up here and I see a few estate and grage sales advertised for this weekend.. maybe I'll find a treasure or two.

Shelia said...

Hi Sissie! I had a little make up mirror when I was a teenager, but not near as pretty as yours! What a pretty print and can't wait to see what you'll do with it. Oh, look at your precious little fuzzy face. Gizzy knows she's a little pretty darling!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Riet said...

Gizzie is too stinkin' cute! Love the charcoal print! Anything with old farmhouses makes me smile :)

June said...

Sissie I have missed some of your great posts and I hate it when that happens. You always have such lovely posts, like this one. I do love that print of the farmhouse. And Gizzie...*sigh*

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

Oh, I love an auction. I have to sit on my hands and my card alot or HiHoney is behind me giving the auctioneer the 'RolledEyes and NO Headshake'! For the longest I couldn't figure out why he sat behind me and why I got no respect from the caller! You sure got some respect...great stuff!

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

I love that charcoal print! It almost looks like a photograph, it has a very moody, mysterious feel to it.

Awww, Gizzie really loves the camera, just like my Winnie. :-)

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I love that mirror! It reminds me of old time Hollywood. Great print too!
Have a great Thursday,

Miss Mustard Seed said...

That charcoal painting is so pretty. The frame definitely needs a makeover. Can't wait to see how it turns out.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Sissie I had to come by and catch up with you. I always enjoy browsing through your different post.
You did good as always with your finds. I love the print and would have wanted that myself.
You changed your headboard and it is very pretty like the other one you had. Is it the same room at a different angle.
Hope your having a great week

Kathy said...

Love them Sissie...
I vote for painting the frame white too!
No surprise there...
Always love my stop here...
Kindred spirits I think!

Looks to me like you had a wonderful day of shopping! I do love the farm house in charcoal and I would shabby up the frame too! I will be looking forward to seeing what you do with the frame.
