September Thrifted Finds

I love September. Cooler weather. I've thrifted, painted, repaired, cleaned, worked on my stock, worked in my booths, just 'taking care of business', such a pleasure.


Sharing a few of my favorite finds this month.

First green chalkboard I've found, complete with old eraser and chalk. Tablecloth was found at the same sale.


A group of frames I painted turquoise (chalk-clay paint) and waxed.


Queen Ann's Lace Woven Flower by K. Blake


Three clocks from an estate sale (and the teatowel behind them is from the Pioneer Village Ladies sale).


Vintage Enamel Lunch Pail


A very large red diamond shaped vase.


Thanks for visiting today.

  8. Great finds - the clocks are also my favorites. There is just something about a dial - clocks, watches, gauges, scales - I love them all.

  28. The frames turned out so beautiful! I do have a soft spot for the green chalkboard of my childhood. There is something about those boards that chalk paint can't match.
