A Few Good Finds

Hi Bloggerettes!  Dog-gone-it, I didn't find much of anything at the yardsales and thrifts this week!  How about you?  I guess the only way we can see what everyone else found is to go over to see Linda at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays!

I fluffed up my booth today.  We have been so busy at Miss Minnie's that it has been hard keeping it full of good stuff.
I love this charming little picture frame, but it had to get the heirloom white treatment...

Whenever I'm lucky enough to find a little vintage shelf with rust, then I'm lucky enough!

And, the little vintage lamb was an extra bonus!
Isn't he cute?
Of course, I had to sneek in a picture of some pillows
I've been working on, burlap and rosettes, of course.

Of course, what's a Monday without a little pink to make us smile...
My lovely crepe myrtle tree in my front yard...

Be sure and stop by Linda's at Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays! for some more wonderful finds.

Sissie had a litle lamb . . . .

I found some great vintage items Saturday at the Discovery Shop. Did you see the post? I missed out on a typewriter, suitcase and hat . . . next year I know to take a BIG BOX and where to head to first . . people were grabbing things left and right, the first 15 minutes was like a madhouse!!! I was like a deer caught in the headlamps, LOL, but next year I'll know!!


Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I went thrifting and found two hand made beautiful 26" doilies for 50 cents each! Love them, but that's it for the bargain spending... Now on the "not so thrifty spending" side I picked up an ice cream maker-I made homemade banana ice cream today-Woo Hoo!

Shelly said...

I found some fun stuff on Friday! (On my post)

Love your crepe myrtle! How gorgeous!

Your shop space looks great!


Linda @ A La Carte said...

I found a few things this week and I'll be sharing for Linda's party on Tue. I do like that little lamb!!

Hi Sissie,
Such pretties in your booth just like your home! Lovely treasures!

Wendy said...

You have a wonderful booth! It looks like somewhere that I would love to spend an afternoon shopping!

June said...

Sissie girl, you just amaze me with how much you get done in a day, a week, a year! You must sew constantly. I love your new pillows.
Your space at Miss Minnies is so perfect. I love how it all looks put together.
Now get some have sewing to do!

Donna said...

Hi Sissie,
Your booth is wonderful! Wish I could shop there! I love your cute wire shelf, and your crepe myrtle is gorgeous!

Vicki said...

Sissie, I must tell you if I lived close enough I would be in your sweet shop every chance I got. Your pillows, of course, are always heavenly. I, too, love crepe myrtles, in fact, I would only have them in my yard if it were up to me. I have several but previous owner had planted other trees. Your crepe myrtle is lovely. Have the best of weeks, sweet friend! Sending lots of hugs and love your way! Vicki

raggygirlvintage said...

I'm gonna have to come visit your store one day Sissie, it is so beautiful! You must spend a lot of time painting!!
So glad you understood my need to buy the whole door to get the crystal doorknobs:-)

Nancy said...

That little lamb is so precious! The shelf is sweet, too. And of course, I love your pillows!


Something Nice and Pretty said...

I found a bench yesterday and can't wait to paint it to find fabric!

Love your store and blog!


Rustique Gal said...

Sissy, what sweet finds you show in your shop. No wonder you have been busy! I so agree about white wire shelves. I love them when they show a little rust. The lamb is too cute! Very 1950's I think.
Take care, dear, and stay cool!

~ Regan said...

I've said it before, I'll say it again....

I just ♥♥♥ your pillows. ;)

Dorthe said...

The most sweet looking place,you have there,dear Sissie.Full of your lovely handmade goodies, and all your findings-happy for you, that it is running out your shop--
Happy monday,with hugs and love.

Sandy~Romantique Inspirations~ said...

What a pretty picture of your booth at Miss Minnies.... I really like that. All your pictures are always so nice to look at Sissie and your pillow is top notch... and that goes to every one you make.


Shellbelle said...

Oh, the little lamb is so adorable and I'm in love with that picture frame.

Your Crape Myrtle looks gorgeous. I have two mini ones, they grow only two feet tall, but this year only one limb bloomed. I guess they didn't care for the move from Florida to Georgia, so I'm hoping next year they'll have settled in.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

The booth looks so pretty, Sissie! Love the new pillow and the frame looks wonderful with its fresh coat of paint!

A Cottage Muse said...

Love your treasures Sissie and of course your pillows. I would love to spend some time in your booth and out by that lovely tree with a cold beverage!

Lisa@Pickles and Cheese said...

Your booth always looks so inviting! And I just love what you can do with a pillow! I love all of your pillows...sweet lamb too. :)


Hi Sissie, Love your finds, the little lamb is so cute. Your booth looks so pretty I wish I was close enough to visit you! I hope you have a great week!

Diann said...

Hi Sissie!
Oh, your booth looks so pretty and enchanting! It was a tough thrifting weekend. I found a couple of goodies at the flea market so, I was happy about that.

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Hi Sissie! I did not get out to any garage sales on Saturday. They have really dwindled down around here. We did sleep in for a rare change so that was nice too! I just love your little booth at Miss Minnie's! I wish I was close enough to visit! Love your burlap pillows with the rosettes and your crepe myrtle is gorgeous!~Hugs, Patti

Marydon said...

G'morn, Sissie ~

Have a beautiful week.

Sherrie said...

Everything looks better in heirloom white and all your things at your booth are as always lovely. I wanted to finally get a chance, belatedly, to stop by to say thank you for your kind words of encouragement about opening my shop. Your booth is one of the places that I have drawn inspiration from. All my stuff is vintage although the new pillows I make use vintage buttons and other embellishments if not actual vintage fabric. It is hard to find vintage items and even harder to let go of some of the super treasures that I do find. All in all, hard work but I am having fun. Again thank you for your comments. By the way, I finally did post photos today.

Pam said...

The little lamb is so cute. I just love all your items. Love your site.

My Grama's Soul said...

Hi Sissie......stopped in to say hi. I would so love to do a little shopping in your little booth. Perhaps is there a way to do that . You give us sneak peaks but don't let us know how we can purchase if interested.

Just wondering???



Sherry @ No Minimalist Here said...

Sissie, Your booth is so cute! I wish I lived closer because I know I would love to shop there.
Hugs, Sherry
