Finds and Funky Pumpkins!

Hi Bloggerettes!   Gosh I've had a busy weekend.  How bout you?
I did find a few things at the sales this weekend, so I think I'll show you.  You ready?  Okay, here we go!

How about vintage, white, chippy and rusty!  Oh yeah, now I got your attention....
I've been looking for a metal pitcher for awhile and this one is just perfect!
I found this great old stool at a nearby antique shop.  I've had my eye on it for a long time and this time the price was right!
I did sand and white wash the seat.

Wait, don't leave, there's more....

This sweet little dress needs to be worn again.  So I think it's perfect for my booth.  Someone will come along and have to have it for their little girl.

Check out that va-va-voom feather boa!

I really don't care too much for traditional orange pumpkins.
So I bought a fake pumpkin, painted it white, added gold glitter, some faux bead flower stems, some ribbon and I like it. Do you?

I added some small cones and gourds with the pumpkin and placed it all on a silver tray.  See my wreath in the background with
fabric ribbon from Raggy Girl Vintage.  I just love
her ribbon.

Just had to throw in a pink pumpkin!!!

I'm linking up with my good friend Linda at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.
Be sure and stop over there and check out all the wonderful posts.

Of course I like your white and your pink pumpkins...I like everything you do. I will say though that I have to have my fall colors of red, orange, yellow, green, and brown...I love fall so much. Ours (like our spring) is short here so I inhale as much of it as I can as quickly as I can!

Marsha @ Tattered Chick said...

LOVE that pitcher! I've been looking for one for quite some time!

Too funny, I saw some white pumpkins somewhere and was thinking of buying them. Last year I sprayed mine black and this year I added some glitter to them.

I love your white and pink pumpkins. They are darling! And your pitcher is great too. The stool turned out nice. Looks like you had a good weekend junkin'. I have stayed in all weekend trying to get some work done around the house. I'm thrilled to still have another day tomorrow. Woo hoo!!!! Enjoy the rest of your holiday weekend. Love & blessings from NC!

Oh Sissie Sweetie...
What glorious finds again. I love the little stool, and that pitcher is GORGEOUS. What a find. Now please tell me you are not going to put that into your booth?

I love your pumpkins, ofcourse the pink one is SO you. I love it. I can just see it sitting ther glittering away at all that come by to visit. What a conversation piece it will be.

Been in all weekend. Just not up to the heat outside. Still seeing triple digit temps and it is to much for me.

Have a beautiful Labor Day tomorrow. No work for me. Woo-Hoo.

Country hugs sweetie and so much love, Sherry

Sissie, love your treasures, but most of all I love your pretty pumpkins. Now only you could think to do one in pink. Way tooooooooo cute. Hugs, Marty

Unknown said...

I wish I had known you were looking for a pitcher like that. I have an extra I've been wanting to get rid of, but mine isn't all rusty and chippy cool. I really like you painted pumpkins, especially the pink one!!!


Annie Louise said...

Sissie, I just knew there would be a pink pumpkin in your home this Fall! They are both adorable. Great finds with the vintage pitcher and stool.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I swear Sissie only you would have a Pink Pumpkin! I love it and the white one! That pitcher is a keeper for sure! Really love that chippy look. Now to make myself a Pink Pumpkin!

Debra@CommonGround said...

Leave it to Sweet Sissie to come up with a Non-traditional pink pumpkin! It's too cute and you're giving me lots of great ideas! Love that white metal pitcher! Loved your pink post yesterday, thanks again for playing along with the party. You're a great friend!!

Simple Home said...

I love your new finds, especially that old stool. The pumpkin looks great too. I like the white ones, but that little bit of gold really adds a nice finishing touch. So pretty!

raggygirlvintage said...

Okay Sissie, that's gotta be the first pink pumpkin I ever saw!! I am so in love with your pitcher, it is just perfect, and the little girl's dress just dreamy. I have two frou frou dresses - a white and a pink hanging in my studio just because they were too pretty to pass up! Some of us just never grow up you know:-)

Klik said...

I like your non-traditional fall decor :)))

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love your pink pumpkin, Sissie! I'm with you though, I prefer the white over the orange. I think it mixes in with decor easily and still gives off that fall feel. I have a mix of both in my stash. I'll have to get them out this week after work and decide where I want to put everything.

Jessi Nagy said...

Wonderful goodies! And I just love your beautiful pastel pumpkins. It's true that traditional orange just doesn't mix well with your pretty whites.
