Wonderful Weekend Finds!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Hope you found some good stuff this weekend.
I know I did.  Wanna see?  I know you do but I'm going to warn you, you are going to be envious....oh, yes you are!

It was covered with old clothes and other ugly stuff, but I saw a little piece of white wicker showing through the stack of uglies.  When I removed all the stuff......I discovered this and I couldn't get it to the checkout counter fast enough!

An antique baby bed or bassinet made of wicker and oh, so cute!
Don't you just love it?

Found this sweet wooden cabinet at a yardsale and decided it was definitely "french farmhouse style."

A pretty hand crocheted round tablecover

A Sissie pillow on a sweet soda shoppe chair...

We have been so busy at Miss Minnie's.  All the tourists and vacationers are here and they love to shop our booths.
So today I went in to fluff and restock a few things.

While I was there I spied this sweet vanity bench in
Dianne's booth.  I just might have to have it!

Okay, my sweets, it's time to go visiting you and see what you found, made or what's on your mind.

I'm linking to "Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays," at Coastal Charm
Be sure to stop by Linda's site and look at all the wonderful finds and remakes!

Hey Sissie Girl,
The booth looks awesome, as usual! Love the pink pillow. I paid homage to you on my post today. You inspired me to sew! Guess what? I found a little pink princess trike to shop with you on. I hid behind a bush waiting for a little kid to ride by, then I jumped out & tackled her for it. LOL It's hard to ride tho, my knees are up in my cheast! Lisa
