Friday's Treasures

I went out to three yards sales early Friday morning and was feeling a bit frustrated after finding nothing at the first two.  Have no fear, the third one was a charm.  

It was a parking lot sale where several vendors from a nearby store were selling their treasures.  My kind of sale!  I love the yellow paint on that old cabinet door and the weathered wood on the stool.  The foil/plastic wrap dispenser isn't long enough to hold the newer rolls, but it's perfect for paper towels.

Not one, but two of these Billy's delicious bretzels (pretzels) tins.  Non lye dipped...good to know.

I grabbed all the rusty metal stuff and started a pile.

Forgot to get a picture of the inside, it looks brand new.

No yard sale is complete without an ugly vanity bench with a shiny
gold cushion.

Isn't this the sweetest table top flower bed?  It didn't matter to me that the piece around the top fleur de lis was missing.  Even the flower pots were included.

Just the right amount of chippy paint.

When it finally cools off around here I'll put plants in the pots, and the vanity bench will be getting a much needed makeover.  Everything else is good to go...rust, chippy paint and all.
 I almost forgot to mention the 6 1/2 foot doors in the background.  Those were a $2 yard sale find a while back.

You've been hearing it for months now, but there's only two days left until Google Reader rides off into the sunset.  If you've been getting my updates through this reader, I'd love for you to follow along through Bloglovin'.   You can find my Bloglovin', email follow, and Google Friend Connect buttons on my sidebar.

  2. Hi Betsy...I love all of your finds, as usual, and I also love how you compose your items to photograph. The top photo is such a pretty arrangement of yellow, gray and blue...a lovely still-life. Love those Bretzel/Pretzel tins! And the flower bed is so cute. Anxious to see how you transform the vanity bench...good luck!

  3. I have to admit I just love the red tool box but the blue pretzel tin is great. someone was clever with the white plant holder, it sort of looks like a little bed cut down. Cute finds. I went back to one that I attended Thursday and today was 1/2 off. I found a few new things for my booth to use this fall. New treasures are always fun. Enjoy your finds. Kathy

  23. Hi Betsy,

    You scored! Love the tabletop flower bed with its French white, shabby chic texture and the fleur de lis engraving! Anything that has a history is surely a keeper!

  24. Those vendors played right into your hands. I'm so glad they did because we all know you will make good use of their cast offs. So much cuteness in one place. Love it!

  26. The "bretzel" tins are my favorite - blue and tin, too! Of course the toolbox would have gotten into my car.
