Week 23 ~ Diamonds In The Rough!

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 week, I was able to nab some good furniture to transform this winter. Here's my loot for the week.
This will be a fun chair to transform. Don't kill me, but it had a matching side chair that I didn't get. Crazy, I know.
I will have fun with this pair!
This little lady will be quite the challenge. But for only $1 I will take that challenge. Wonder who will win, me or the trash!
Another tiny demi lune table. Easy breazy.

An antique oval mirror.

Just look at the detail of the roses in the plaster work!
A demi ironstone creamer. These usually are from Hotels of old.
An ironstone teapot, cream and sugar.
Two matching finials for a clients home.

Three candlesticks with candles. Hubby loved them for his basement man cave!
These two (green and yellowish) vessels of wood just stole my heart. Think springtime.
I can rework this into something better. But I loved the bunny.
See the $12.00 Halmark Melt my heart silver candle? It was only 75¢!
This large glass container was in its original box sealed with large manufacturing staples used to seal boxes. It was from a store here that closed some 15 years prior based on the price sticker. I paid 50¢ for this brand new container! Ask me who got the better deal?

  1. Serious score...we are like squirrels storing nuts anticipating winter....stockin' up!!! Love it!1

  2. I love that Melt candle...how sweet is that?!

  3. great finds...especially the chairs. And that cannister - which I can imagine the lid painted in courtly checks, right?

  4. Love your finds! I love the teapot and creamer set :)

  5. Now those are some great finds! Those greenish scrolled boxes would be perfect just to plop a plant from the store in without out having to transplant - especially if they grew in a square container.


It makes me smile to hear from you!
