treasure monday

I have been reading all of the Lucketts recaps out there in blog world.  I really wish I could have went to the antique market in Virginia this past weekend.  It sounds amazing…15 acres…170 dealers.  Swoon!  Judging by everyone’s pictures, it looks like there was a ton of talent and treasures to be had.  Hmmph…if only we could have made it.  We’re a little glum about it here but next year for sure.

We spent the weekend tending to our long overdue garden work. Lots of weeding, planting and mulching.  We also celebrated 3 birthdays with one each day.  Very busy, however, I did manage to find some new vintage treasures.  Lots of fun smalls.

Here are the highlights…

I am loving these salvaged fence finials.  They would make great upcycled wine stoppers.

Very old roller skates. I just couldn’t turn these down. They are pictured with a wooden toolbox. I got a couple of those.

Something about these cow creamers drew me in. So unique and I believe that Pottery Barn (or was it Crate & Barrel?) produced an all white version of these recently. Nothing like having the original.

This hand hook rug is like a million years old but the colors are still vibrant. I am on the hunt for more worn, hooked throw rugs like this one.  Sorry for the lousy picture quality.

If you follow me on facebook, you probably saw my mid-week find. A vintage pink thermos! I am smitten with it.  It is just asking to chill a summer sangria!

Another day, another scale…I’m still not sick of them.

How was your weekend? Did you go to Lucketts or treasure hunt elsewhere?

  1. I actually have a finial collection (surprise!) but they aren’t old. Love your little collection. That pink thermos is perfection! I actually found a couple of 70’s rainbow thermoses recently. And I love the creamers – I have a few white vintage ones (cow, pig, cat). Looks like we could not go thrifting together or we’d be fighting over the same fabulous finds!

  2. Oooo those little cows are adorable! I bought an all white one from Target for $1 but I agree with you – the vintage ones a wayyy better. I love the pink thermos also – what a great idea to keep summer sangria in – yummy!
