treasure trove

Guess what!  It’s the beginning of the week so that means it’s time to show ya my vintage finds from last week.  There’s a few gems in the mix for your viewing pleasure.

I’ve got a thing for hand embroidered little tea towels. 

What can I say?

These adorable glass bottles will be a nice addition to our collection in the beach house bedroom.  Just add shells for instant gratification.

More bottles!  Definitely of the vintage variety.  These are old beer bottles embossed with the brewery and local origin – Norristown & Philadelphia.

Another day.  Another orchard basket.  This one is just asking for a poinsettia in it at Christmas.

It is always a good day when a beautiful antique ironstone dish surfaces for just a few bucks.

We got a new chandelier!  It’s really not vintage but I’ve been on the hunt for a simple farmhouse style iron one just like this.  That means we can take down the brass beast of a chandy that came with the house.  Thank goodness.  The new one also won’t be sporting the little lamp shades when it moves into the dining room.

The chair in the background of all of the pictures is solid oak and, although hard to tell, butter cream yellow.  I originally thought I’d repaint it but it is distressed in just the right places already.  A little soap and gloss will have it glowing.

Did you find any vintage treasures this week?

  1. Thanks for sharing your finds. As an estate sale professional, I finds treasures all the time. Good thing I don’t collect them. Otherwise I’d never make any money and my house would be overflowing.

  2. Cool finds! I love the little chair, and I’d be tempted to leave it as is, too. I have some “finds” on a past entry on my blog – nothing near as good as what you’ve found this week!

Thanks for your comments!
