Saturday Action and Thrift Sale finds

Hi Bloggerettes!  I scored big at the auction on Saturday!  Oh, yes I did!  Wanna see??  Do you??  Well, ok, here goes.

This lovely Roses Painting, in a sinfully orante frame, became mine when the hammer came down!  Only one other person bid against me and I still got it for a song.  She stopped bidding for some strange reason, maybe because I was throwing her dagger looks, uh I mean, because I was looking so cute and sweet!  Anyway, Rachael Ashwell would be proud of me.

This little table was found at an estate sale on Saturday.  It was just sittin in the corner all lonely and calling my name.  The price tag was right so off she went to my little car.

They are both very happy in my booth just waiting for someone to take them home......
Get a load of this pretty cabinet in Peggy's booth at Miss Minnie's.
It was mud fence ugly until she waved her magic wand over it.
Bet it doesn't last long.

Last, but not least, I leave you with my Kitty Garden made from a vintage pepsi crate.  Full of fresh sweet grass and katnip....
kitty heaven!

Okay, all my lovelies, it's the beginning of a brand new
week, so go out there and shakes things up a bit.

Donna said...

Hi Sissie

What great finds! It would be hard for me to part with either of them! And I love Peggy's desk and hutch. It reminds me so much of the French Provincial one I had when I was a teenager! Of course, mind isn't that pretty color. My mom still has it. Maybe I will have to nab it from her so I can transform it!

KATHY said...

Hi Sissie,

I love the gorgeous painting and sweet table! Your booth is so beautiful! You have everything displayed beautifully! I know those items wont stay there long! Your friends booth is beautiful too! I love the hutch! I am sure your sweet kitties are enjoying that catnip! That was a wonderful idea. Love, Paula


Hi Sissie! your finds are terrific! i'm so jealous of that little white table...are you sure it wasn't speaking to me? lol

the frame is gorgeous....nice do have a good eye! (or two)!

I've never heard the term, "mud face ugly", but I like it, somedays' that's just how I feel! ha! lol!

ciao bella

Terri Smith said...

I totally agree Sweet DEFINITELY SCORED BIGTIME! Again your humor in describing your day at auction, tore me up. Like I've said so many times before..something's always shakin' over here at Sissie's Place.

Thank you so much for wishing my momma a happy day on your recent visit. Meant a lot! And I'm glad you liked the photo of me while painting..wasn't so sure I should have used pulled back and all. Just keepin' it real.

Again..great find with the beautiful painting. Yes, Miss Ashwell would be proud!

Blessings, Hugs & Monday Sunshine, Terri

Lori said...

Happy To Be/ Gl♥ria said...

Anne - Fiona and Twig said...

Hi Sissie!

That rose painting is stunning! It won't last long in your booth.

Your kitties seem to really love their little garden! So sweet!

Have a wonderful week!

Alaina said...

Cute little table, you have very nice items in your booth, I keep saying all the good shops are so far away. I just wanted to let you know I was able to get all my planting done, now I am praying for rain, those are a lot of plants to have to water now. Have a great day.

Kathy said...

Hey girl...
The picture = to die for...and the frame.
The kitty cute, and the dress from your earlier post...delish!
Your booth is wonderful,
Bet you have a ball just rearranging and tweeking everything to look it's best!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Have I missed other photos and posts of your booth? Oh, it's just so sweet! And wow! that painting is fabulous! OK, that's the best idea, a kitty garden, I have to do this. maybe it will deter them from eating my other plants. A delicate question...after they eat cat nip and sweet grass, do they go barf it up somewhere or does it actually help their digestion? Inquiring minds want to know...

Linda@Coastal Charm said...

Beautiful painting...yes...she would be proud of you! Lovin' that CUTE little table too!


Lynn-Teacupstitches said...

Hello Miss Sissie!
Isn't getting something so special and at a super price just one of the best things ever!!
If I had been there you would have not gotten such a deal - hehe ;-)
Love all your pics and thank you for sharing!!

Dorthe said...
