Wonderful Finds!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Fasten your seatbelts bloggeroos, it's gonna be a very bumpy ride.  Or, should I say a long post full of all of my good finds, plus some other stuff! 

I've had my eye on this cute wooden bench for awhile now.  It was in another booth near mine.  I finally brought it home and set it on the front porch.  The galvanized tin was also a find. I added some left over house numbers.  All I gotta do now is put some flowers in the tin.

I was also on a mission to put some flowers in my porch urns and couldn't decide what kind.  I think the hydrangea plants looks pretty good!

When I saw this glass dispenser jug shaped like a beehive, I had to have know that feeling, don't you?
Can't you just see it full of icy lemonade.

Found this signed print of a picket fence.  I think I'll put it in a vintage frame painted white and shabbied.

Look at this sweet little porcelain lady found at GW's

I also had to have this lovely wrought iron wreath hanger stand!

Okay, I know you are tired now so I'll let you take a breather.
I'm excited to go over and check out some of your blogs
so I'm outta here!

Oh, one more thing before I's my
36th Wedding Anniversary.  Mr. Sissie surprised me with roses
and made me a wonderful dinner.  Ain't he sweet.


Be sure and stop by and see the other great posts and say hello to Linda, our lovely hostess!

Oh how wonderful. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!!! I hope you have many, many more. Your treasures are all just wonderful. The bench is fabulous and the tin bucket with the house numbers is such a great idea. Love the hydrangeas too. Lemonade will be fabulous in your beautiful dispenser. I saw a wreath hanger, and then had no idea what it was, maybe I need to look again. Yours is wonderful. Great finds.

Happy 36th Anniversary! What a wonderful milestone! By the way, your idea to put house numbers on the galvanized tin is brilliant! I will be stealing that idea! :)

Good to be back, friend!

Happy Anniversary Sissie! It's my birthday today so we have a special day in common! I also got roses, pretty white ones.

~ Regan said...

Happy Anniversary!!

Love everything, especially the tin flowerbox-- that's a great idea to add your house numbers to it! Hmmm, might have to copy that one... ;)

Hydrangeas are one of my most favorite flowers- I didn't know they could grow in a container! You see, not much grows at all if its around me-- but I'm learning! Tulips are my other favorite, and at least they're easy to grow.

Dorthe said...

Hello my dear,
you are doing great every time searching, lucky girl.
Congratulations on your 36 anniversary, the flowers are so beautifull, and such a sweet thing to do, of your husbond. :)
Have a wonderfull tuesday Sissie,
Hugs from Denmark.

Shellbelle said...

All lovely finds, but I must admit, I've never heard of tabletop wreath stand. I love the idea though and will be keeping my eye out for one. I know I have at least a few of those grapevine wreaths around and, of course, they have shells on them too!

My name is PJ. said...

First of all, Happy Belated Anniversary! 36 years! You both deserve medals!

Adored your finds, Sissie. Putting the house numbers on the galvanized tin box was genius! You could start a trend. And I've never seen a wreath stand made of anything, much less wrought iron! I love it! said...

Happy Anniversary Sweet Sissie & the Mister! 36 years is a huge thing! What a sweetie to buy you those gorgeous roses & take you to dinner. Good to know there is still romance after that time. Know, lets talk about your finds. Love them all! The bucket with the numbers on the bench is such a cute idea. Love it, may very possibly steal it for my own! That terrarium thing next to the wreath stand is killing me! Where did you get that? I love it! You have a sweet Tuesday my cute friend! Lisa

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Happy Anniversary, dear Sissie! I wish you and Mr. Sissie many more happy returns!
You brought home some great finds again. The beehive shaped dispenser is really extraordinary.
Have a lovely Tuesday!

Riet said...

Happy anniversary Sissie and what a sweet man to make you a wonderful dinner. I love your new finds you show us here.You always know the place to find where you can get these goodies. Have a great day.

Sherrie said...

Happy Anniversary. My own is coming up in August #30 and I haven't killed him yet. You know what I mean. I wanted to make sure to stop over to say thank you for your kind words about my new shop. I want you to know that the name came from you, in part. You wrote about thriftiques and I liked the name. Do I have to pay you a royalty? I know it will be hard work and I can't wait. Thanks for your support.

Pamela said...

Happy Anniversary!!

I love that black iron wreath stand!!! And Hydrangea's are my favourite!

Beansieleigh said...

Donna said...

Hello Sissie,
Happy belated anniversary! Sounds like you had a wonderful day! I am loving that bee hive shaped dispenser! You will get alot of use out of it! How fun! I sure hope that you go to Paris some day! You would love it! There is so much to see and do that it's almost overwhelming! It is the most beautiful city I've ever seen! And the food.......oh, la, la!!
Can't wait to hit up some sales this weekend!

Hi Sissie, What lovely finds, love them all. Wishing I had some lemonade to sip on - love the glass container...
Happy Anniversary to your and your husband, 36 years together is so wonderful. Last Wednesday we celebrated our 26th Anniversary and I"m looking forward to many more...I hope you and your husband have a wonderful day!

Rustique Gal said...

Wow, You do know how to find great stuff! I love the wreath & hanger thingy. I'm trying to get rid of stuff, but finding freebies on the side of the road is my thing. Now, I'm thinking that to bring stuff in I have to get rid of stuff to balance it! Happy Hunting! AND Happy Anniversary to you.
Hugs, Sherry

June said...

Hey girl, I've said it before, YOU CAN SHOP...and dig up the good goods!
