Fabulous Finds

As I promised, I am sharing all my fabulous finds from last week's visit with Cecilia of My Thrift Store Addiction. 

She took me to all her favorite spots. From the first store we went in,  I found some really wonderful treasures! First was this plastic pumpkin - 25 cents.  I know it doesn't look like much but I'm inspired by Cecilia's pumpkin redo's and have plans for this one.
I'll share it's makeover next week!

I also found this stool! It will get a makeover soon. It was only $8.
  It's going to be great in the art studio while I paint. See? It's perfect at the easel.

This cute little dog salt & pepper shaker was a find for 50 cents. I gave it to my friend who's looking for dog shakers.

The great finds continued at the next stop. I've been wanting more silver containers to use for decorating. This bowl, though tarnished, was a steal for $2.
I can see it filled with shiny ornaments at Christmas. Or pinecones.

I think I found a treasure in almost every store we went into.

These books came from different places but they were both inexpensive. The Flea Market decorating one is full of ideas and Beatrix Potter is a favorite author of mine.

Aren't the illustrations in the Tom Kitten book the best? So cute!

"The Tale of Tom Kitten" illustrations
I can see it paired with my sweet kitty figurine.

I finally succumbed to the tiered tray craze...after all, who could resist this metal scroll one? $11.
 I will use this either in the bathroom or kitchen.

A bag of shiny old ornaments caught my eye - couldn't find any mark on them so I don't think they are Shiny Brites but I love their colors and crackled finish.

The two Pyrex bowls were from different stores - the large one was only $2 and the smaller one was $6 (it was at an antiques store - probably why it cost more). I love this pattern. It matches the butter dish I got earlier in the year at Canton.

I also found this plate for $2. Love transferware and this wintery scene will be fun to display all winter.

This suitcase had me at red and was a find at $12! The previous shop had a similar one priced at $45. You can bet I grabbed this one up when I saw it. The lining needs work but I will use this for storage at the farm along with a couple of other old suitcases I have.

Last of all, I bought a couple of things at Smitten. These concrete mushrooms will be fantastic in the fairy garden I'm working on.

And this wreath was just too pretty to pass up. I love its soft look.
I think it will look so pretty on my chalkboard wall.

Although not a find, I love this handmade stamped stone from Cecilia. She personalized it with the farm in mind. I can't wait to put it in a special spot!
(If you'd like your own stamped stone, you can go to Cecilia's shop here ).

And that my friends, is all my fabulous finds. Be sure to pop over to Cecilia's and read about her finds, here.
