Week 22 ~ Diamonds In The Rough! Part 1

Diamonds In The Rough! is my weekly feature, where I show you the treasures that I find from garage sales, thrift stores and antique stores.

This is Part 1 of my week of treasures! There was so much that I had to break it up for you. In Part 1, I will share garage sale treasures and what I did with some of it already.
Last week, I found a cute child's teaset but the creamer was missing. This week I found the creamer!
I have more cups, but this is how I have the teaset displayed in my home.
This small bubble glass frame caught my eye. It had a picture of Blueboy inside that I have removed and plan on using it with something else.

A fun arrow. I plan on changing up the paint color and then adding some wording.

A vintage lamp to sell in my booth.

A large tray and a wire basket
An old photo that I made into Halloween art
I finally made something that was all over the blogs last year.
A small bucket (see below what I did with it)
I put my fall tabletop tree in it!
An iron candle stand (see below what I did with it)
I used it to place a pumpkin on.
A Ouija board (see below for why I bought it)
To use as Halloween decor!

NOTE: You should be able to click on most of the pictures to enlarge to see further details.

  1. You definitely have some great pieces there! I love the bucket and what you did with it!
    My weekends have been so busy lately, I haven't hit any thrift stores or yard sales! I plan on it this weekend though!! Fall yard sales are the best!

  2. Great finds...I love what you did with everything!

  3. You found some wonderful things this week and did great things with them! I'm not a fan of quija boards in theory - but I LOVE the typography & graphics on them! You found a beautiful one!

  4. You always come up with the cutest ideas. The pumpkin on the stand is so cute as is your kitchen centerpiece!

  5. I cannot believe you found the creamer that matched the set! Amazing! I love the white pumpkin on the stand!!

  6. You found so many beautiful treasures and how lucky that you found a matching creamer....Christine

  7. So awesome that you found the matching creamer. I've had that happen with sets of dishes that go through Goodwill. Last year I found a set of 3 lustre wear cup and saucer sets. Then when I went to the Goodwill in the other direction I found 5 more sets.

  8. Loving your blog! I would be thrilled to have you come link up to Thrifty Thursday. I am following via GFC. Blessings...

  9. Awesome stuff! I love your fall tree!! My mom would too!! :)


It makes me smile to hear from you!
