Some Recent Finds

Hi Bloggerettes!  I think it's time for a new post, but the problem is, I haven't much to show and tell.  I have found a few things that you might like to see.   

Found this shabby, chippy ceiling tile...It has already sold!

I love it when I find these wonderful vintage hat box cases.
A good dose of chantilly lace paint and a pretty ribbon...

I can't seem to get enough mercury glass!!!  Somebody stop me!!!

Found these wonderful cottage tables at the resale store.
They are in the booth waiting for a new home.

We've been painting furniture all week, so I'm hoping to show you some finished pieces real soon.
I'm also working on my 1000 follower giveaway, so stay tuned!

Hey Sissie,
I've been camping in the mountains with my family but I was still lurking. You have been crazy busy buying awesome goodies for your booth. I about fainted when I saw the love seat. Oh my gosh Sissie, I wish I lived closer, I've been looking for one forever. I want to put one at the foot of my bed. Have fun fluffing it all & don't inhale the paint fumes!

I understand why someone picked up the ceiling tile so quickly! And the cottage tables are perfect, aren't they?

Claudia said...

I think you did just fine - love that ceiling tile, Sissie!


Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I am not surprised that the tile sold. It is a show piece. Those yellow cottage tables would look good in Blondie's house, lol! I am sure they will be gone shortly too. Now, did the pink wallpapered armoire ever sell?

Roselle said...

Sissi: Your booth is delish! I NEVER find any vintage luggage when out junkin. I would LOVE to. What paint did you use on that beauty? Have a great weekend! I love all your inspiring finds/creations!

Vicki said...

Not at all surprised that ceiling tile sold so quickly. Great finds. Looking forward to your giveaway.

Karen said...

ME TOO! I love mercury glass. And your little hat box is TOO DIE FOR! I remember we had a hairdryer in a case like that. (Am I dating myself?) You put the plastic bag over your hair and the hot air entered it through a hose and blew up. You looked like a DORK while using it - but hey - a girl had to do what a girl had to back then.
Have a great week! Karen
