It's been a good week for finds. Brenda a local blog reader emailed to say she was cleaning out some treasures and asked if I was interested in taking a look. I have the nicest readers, it's so fun to meet them in person!
I could not believe when she offered me a whole bunch of porcelain flowers that had been chipped off nick nacks.
I use these on all sorts of projects, like on the top of my Sweet Shabby Cabinet
The tutorial on chipping flowers off Nick Nacks is HERE
Brenda also had some linens
And at one time she was a wedding coordinator so, she had a huge collection of candle holders.
Those of you with booths have probably seen the trend of brides and their Moms shopping antique malls for items to use in their Vintage Themed Weddings.
Brenda and I had a huge conversation about this antique rocking chair. I told her I didn't want to buy it because I knew I would need to paint it for resale. She said she wanted to paint it too, but just could not bring herself to do it. She said "Go for it". She was given the chair from a friend who had it sitting out in her backyard and was going to throw it out....So, I will upcycle and save it!
My last picture is finds from my new Honey Hole!!!
I mentioned on a previous post that my Mom had recently moved into her 5 star independent living digs......OMG....They have a thrift store open a few hours a week!!!!
I'm envisioning the gold cabinet painted in heirloom white with French blue drawers....What's your vision for the cabinet....Be warned, I might steal your idea?
