Flea Market & Thrift Store Finds

This past week I took a quick run to the Good Will store and found this cool pitcher & bowl, hanging basket and wooden shelf. The pitcher & bowl was the perfect find for my bedroom dresser. I want to fill the bowl with some prim fixins and some was tarts. I am going to make a wooden peg shelf with some old wood and rusty nails I have for above my bed and this basket will look great hanging from one of the nails with some new sweet annie and maybe even a prim dollie. I think I will save the wooden shelf for a make over when I have some more time and maybe make a prim gathering for Ebay with it.

Sunday, hubby and I took a walk around my favorite flea market and I found this cool chippy paint wooden box. The lid is a little warped and will not close all of the way but I can keep it open and fill it will some prim treasures. The oil can was only 50 cents and would make a great outdoor planter.

Well, I have lots to do today and have to get back to creating some things to list on Ebay.

So loving your GW and flea market finds. The little stool is perfect even if you wanted to close the lid you or your hubby could place a piece of leather on it and make an old timy closure to keep it somewhat closed...either way great finds.

Hugs,
Deb

I love the wood box - I can see a huge clump of Sweet Annie flowing out of it!
