Let's take a look at all the Treasures that came home with me this week!!
This gorgeous coffee table. This photo is the back side, you'll see why in a minute.
LOOK at that detail!?! Gorgeous right?
Here's the front view,
The empty space is where this...
is supposed to go but since Mr. Treasures wasn't here to help carry it in...
Well I had a little mishap. I'm sure we can fix it. If not I'll come up with something.
For $15.00 not bad huh?
But you know what I love best about this table???
The previous owners son must understand the joy in finding Treasures.
Here's what he left behind for someone else to discover...
Adorable right? The lady I bought it from said "Oh I'm sorry, let me get that off of there"
I asked her to leave it. I'm going to attach a little note with it showing the date I acquired it.
I secretly hope someone I know buys it so I can deliver it and see how long before someone else discovers this little Treasure.
Isn't the shape of these GORGEOUS!?!
$15 for both!!!
I'm not sure what color I'll paint them but I do know I'm going to suggest they be used as side by side coffee tables instead of end tables. I think they're more interesting sitting next to each other.
How about you?
Next I've got a couple knick knacks to show you...
I paid $3.50 for everything you see here.
Here's a couple close ups...
Won't this guy look fab painted that same Evening Blue by DecoArt?
I can see him perched on a book shelf as a bookend!
and then there's this guy...
any suggestions? Paint? Leave him alone?
How about uses?
I know the usual bath soaps or hand towels but what else can we do with him??
Ooooh I LOVE this next one and I think most of you are going to as well...
This guy cost me 50 cents!!! I've seen something similar in blogland.
They painted it cream with a black chalkboard square on the front and wrote "towels"
Not sure, maybe I'll do the same?
Next up, remember the sneak peek photo I placed on facebook?
Did you figure out what it was??
It's a chandelier that I found for $4.00. Oh it has the PERFECT patina on it.
All I need to do is use some wire cutters to get rid of the candlestick portion of it. You can see in the photo I already removed one. Now it's ready for some pillar candles and a patio table.
A great friend of mine called me a couple of days ago and told me her children's private school was having a "rummage" sale.
"Wanna go?" she asked.
That's where I found all of my Treasures I'm posting today.
I do have one more Treasure to share with you.
I saved the best for last.
YES, it's real.
Trust me, I know.
In my past life I was very familiar with their products.
Let's just say Coach, Louis, and Mr. Marc Jacobs were my Three Amigos!
Anyhow, Grandma Treasures has been wanting a shallow, wide purse
(the eye sight's not what it used to be)
HA! I posted it like that JUST for her! ;)
I spotted this little lovely and asked "How much?"
"oh, I don't know, what do you want to pay for it?"
(talk about serving up a softball??)
I said "Oohh I wouldn't even know where to start?"
