Weekend Finds

Since garage and estate sales are very few and far between this time of year here in Wisconsin, the "cabin fever" really starts to set in for a junker like me!! So I have to do a little more lookin' in other places~~like malls and shops.
I found these wonderful old books in another booth at the antique mall that I'm in. The covers are fabulous!!! Also found a great old dictionary and a horticulture book with alot of "nature" pictures. Lots of great material for my paper projects~~

I bought this little paper art picture at the Cabin Fever Flea Market on Saturday! I love the materials they used and will be keeping this one for ME!!

I've had my eye on this darling silhouette at the mall I'm in for some time and finally broke down and bought it~~~again, this ones for little ole ME! Also picked up the architectural fragments this weekend too.

This turquoise cabinet is one of my fave finds on Sat. at the Cabin Fever Flea Mkt.!!! I just LOVE this color~~SO springy!! I will be doing a great vignette with this baby! The inside of this cabinet is pictured about 4 pics down--sorry I screwed up my order-Oops!!
This great table came from the flea market as well. Great patina~Perfect amount of wear!! Sorry about my gross garage motor oil stains!

NOW~~this chair was my FAVORITE find!! (also found at the flea mkt.) So shabby I can't stand it!!
Great color*excellent condition*LOVE it!!

cute pie crust table

pretty pastel pottery and floral plate

this is the inside of my aqua cabinet...not sure if this was a medicine cabinet or used for kitchen-y stuff like spices?

My friend Jeanine of Chippy-Shabby was at the flea market and of course her booth was the B*E*S*T!!!! I knew she wouldn't disappoint!! Very fresh and springy~~Thanks for the yummy cookie, Jeanine!! Bought this awesome birdhouse and chippy architectural fragment from her~~
these are staying home with me!!!!~~


sweet $5 lamp from Goodwill

also got 2 of these nice jars from GW~~great for storing buttons, etc. This weekend was the most fun I've had in a long time!! Now to get busy and get them all in my booths!!


  1. Hi Julie, just found you from Round Barn! I love all your great stuff you found, and I so love when you say, "that's staying home with me" Oh, I know that feeling well! I'd love you to come by my blog when you can, so nice to meet you!

  2. I have such a fetish for oval frames-that black oval frame and the silhouette inside is to die for! Good call nabbing it.

  3. Wow, everything you've shown us is something I would have snatched up myself! Our tastes are so similar it's scary!

    Enjoy all your cool new treasures! :-)



I truly appreciate each and every word!! Thanks for stopping by!!
