In Search Of!


Welcome to Thrifty Thursday!! So glad you could join me again this week as I share a few found treasures for redesign.
As you know, last weekend was a wash, but I have other found items that are filling my store room and studio ready for paint and brush!

Like this old box. Can't you just see a little shabby rose redo on this one?


Or this wonderful pedestal table. It's ready to go with a nice basecoat.

Look at this pink pedestal candle holder. Great piece for photo shoots.

And, I love to find these silver and metal treasures. These are primed and ready for some paint.


Ornaments fill the shelves, ready to design and pink spoons in the process. Here you see I have sketched my little winter cottage shape. Oh and Santa's get a basecoat too!



Then I found this old wood spoon rack. I will repaint this a soft white or pink. Sweet Home is a metal flower wall accent. I can see a little french chic design on this one.


I adore this little treasure, a table or wall cabinet with a drawer. Here I was playing with a few looks. Perhaps this teapot needs a rose. The vineyard sign was a great find while I was on staycation this summer.

These next few treasures are going to stay with me and found a place in my little cottage for them.
Love the teapot with rooster and a touch of blue. It goes so nicely with my blue willow.

And this sweet rooster teapot with mugs.

Lastly,look at these beautiful floral framed pieces. They found there way to the master bedroom. I thought about doing something with the frames, but they looked fine just like they were. I thought they had old world charm.

That does it for this Thrift Thursday. See even Iif miss a treasure hunt, yard sale or antique mall, I still have lots to keep me company in the studio. All the above items were under 8 dollars. Score!!
Thanks for stopping by. See you tomorrow for Fun Friday and Fashion.
Have a special day~~~Celestina Marie

Hi Celeste,
My favorite thing to do...scout the Vintage and thrift shop in search of a good find. You seem to have found wonderful pieces. I have often thought about putting together a list of wonderful places here in Massachusetts to find treasures. Tucked in corners of our world, shops that make us walk down memory lane and revisit old friendly reminders of our mothers and grandmothers. Then if that isn't enough, we get to take home a treasure for pennies.

Have a great day.

Good Morning Celeste!!
What a wonderful "stash" you have & when you were "thinking" about what you would do with all the goodies & could just see them finished!!

Have a wonderful day my dear friend...
Love,
Marilyn

Good Morning!

Wow! What wonderful finds! Isn't it fun to go thrifting? I went yesterday on my lunch hour and I also found a wall cabinet almost just like yours. I know that I'm going to paint it. I haven't decided where to put it yet. I've been trying to teach myself how to paint roses for months...maybe I will get the hang of it one day. I love the spoon shelf. Yes, and I could see some of your roses painted on that teapot! It would be beautiful.

Hugs,
Lee Laurie

A Hint of Home said...

Hi Celestina,
My sister just left after a week and haven't had much time to blog. She has breast cancer and comes a couple of times a year when her hubby goes hunting. She comes here and we go shopping.
She will return in a couple of weeks with her daughter. We will shop some more and spend valuable time together. The day she leaves our daughter and family from CA will arrive. We will have 16 days straight of company. My blog following will surely forget me. lol Family is so important, though.
You dear friend are making my head spin with all the projects you have going. I guess you will stay out of trouble. lol
Can't wait to see some of your finished things.
Hope you are feeling better with the ear thing. Take care and enjoy your day.

It's so much fun to find something a little unusual or different and then use your imagination! You are so talented and creative. Sometimes it's hard for me to see something special!
