Good Morning decorating friends!
If you aren't familiar with this thread, it's where we share our recent and/or favorite items we've uncovered. Goodies may be old, new or anywhere in between. We always love to hear prices too.
Okay, let's see all those treasures
One find. I do needlepoint but am always on the lookout for truly old needlepoint. I found this pillow cover at a new flea market in the town east of us.
I think it looks good in the chair in the living room.
Martha, I agree that it looks great on the chair. Perfect size and shape. It's very pretty too.
I bet you love that there's a new flea market in town
That pillow looks perfect on that chair. Good find!
Martha, I share your love of needlepoint. . . not doing it, buying objects that have been done by others.
It is a rare treat to find these items and the new pillow does match very well with the chair.
I started a separate thread on the new lamp we bought a week ago for our living room, but have two other finds.
First is this table we got at the transfer station, not from the swap shop which is where this should have been, but found it standing near the wood debris section.
It is a wonderful height for potting plants and will be useful for those times we want to grill outside.
this is the leather trimmed canvas mail bag I found in the swap shop last week.
Rather this is like the one I found. Mine was cleaned too aggressively (by me) and I decided to pass it on. But oh, my I would have loved itThis message has been edited. Last edited by: lady of shallot,
We went to a nearby yard sale Friday. As luck would have it it was held at one of my favorite houses.
Hope my pic is clear enough that you can see the ocean is at the end of the street. And see the tennis court to the right? This is a nice neighborhood. Too bad the sale wasn't inside as I would have loved to have seen that house.
Hope this is better. See the lighthouse?
Martha, that is a beautiful pillow! It looks like a comfy chair too!
LOS, I love that table and would have grabbed it in a heartbeat! It is perfect for a potting table! I don't understand why you gave up the mailbag if you would have loved it?
My youngest DD needed some extra storage in her office/craft room.
I found this entertainment center at the ARC Thrift Store on senior day = 50% off $59.99 = $29.99!!! It was the 2 towers and the bridge. She already had the desk. She will probably put some attractive paper behind the glass to hide all the "stuff" inside, LOL.
It was in great shape, just a couple of scratches to touch up.
I also found a oil painting copy at a garage sale for .50c
At the same GS I also bought a round wooden lazy susan for .50C. They come in handy for picnic tables and frosting cakes.
Candy -- you always find neat stuff! That's a great picture and what a neat storage solution for you DD.
candy that is a fairly famous picture. Velasquez I think and of the Infanta.
Oh, I ruined the bag by soaking it in bleach. The leather fell apart but that is o.k. as it was so soiled it could not have been used as was. What a wonderful bag though!
LOS, that is a great table and a good use for it! I , too, would love to visit homes in that beautiful neighborhood.
CC....I never even think to look at pictures in the thrift stores! You found a gem!
LOS, great looking table. It looks sturdy. Great height too. The bag is nice as well. Sorry to hear about your bag.
I can see why that house is one of your favorites. I bet they have fantastic views inside. Maybe they'll move and hold an open house so you can see the inside
Wow CC, that's a steal of a deal on the entertainment center. Nice looking print. Looks like you had a successful hunt!
I like that needlepoint pillow! Goes so well with that chair too!
Nice table, it looks sturdy and can be used for anything!
Too bad about the mail bag not lasting through the clean up...
Nice view to the ocean, I used to drive to a client's house on a very similar street, after the appointment, I sat by the water to do the paperwork and call in to the office... NICE fresh air! (where I was ... the Cheasepeake Bay)
How wonderful that the cabinet fit around the desk! great extra storage.
Very nice painting you found at a garage sale and for only 50 cents!
As for ME:
Some medical routine prep & testing this week, so threw me off for thrifting... but I LOVE seeing all the FINDS here!
Great weather here.
I am trying to adopt a small dog that needs rescue... hard when they go to someone else... but another in que and will keep going until an adoption 'clicks'. I am working through a dog training business & rescue center with connections to local owners who no longer can care for a dog under 20 lbs. I put in for a pair of brothers 3 weeks ago, but was not chosen. So, we'll see what comes my way! I would rather adopt in this area since there are so many who's owners can no longer care for them due to medical or downsizing...
Thank you so much Skyler for hosting this great MMF's thread! I loved seeing everyone's FINDS!!!This message has been edited. Last edited by: Mary Ruth,
MR, Good Luck on your dog quest!
I hope the medical issues are all OK.
The towers by the desk are individual and the bridge over the top just sits on there, so it can be adjusted to fit from narrow to wide.
I could not believe what a nice piece of furniture it was for the price! It has crown molding and corbels at the top, solid wood, not laminate, and a beautiful finish. I was so excited for my DD as I knew she needed something for storage, but at a good price. This was above and beyond what I was searching for, especially the price!!
MR -- our two are rescues -- of course, Doogie (the rat terrier type) was dropped in our fenced back yard . . . so I guess someone chose us.
There are so many dogs that need homes -- you'll have to share your new pet when you get it!
Thanks Christmas Candy and Martha!
I meet the sheltie currently offered on Sunday... so she might be my next MMF's post!
Hi Mary Ruth, thanks for checking in ( I worry when I don't see you here every week
Good for you on the rescue efforts. I volunteer for an animal rescue (cats) so I know how much of a need there is for adoptions. Hope to see your new "find" soon!
Skyler, how sweet!
