Objets Trouvés

...Found Items. These are some of the treasures that I found yesterday morning, bright and early I might add. I was home by 9am. A neighborhood in Lake Forest held their annual sale and let me tell you this is like going to a flea market! House after house after house is selling everything from treasures from the attic to egg rolls. Yes, I did have egg rolls for breakfast yesterday and they were delicious! The lady that makes them was featured in the OC Register and she has a line down her drive way - how can you go wrong 2 for $1. Hey, they kept me going as I walked the neighborhood with my cart overflowing with these goodies! I met Linda from La Maison Rustique. I'm going to take a little road trip to visit her next Barn Sale. She was hanging out with some friends here locally and I was fortunate enough to pick up some wonderful treasures from them ~ the watering can, and pink bucket.

this super-cute vintage tablecloth - I love the colors!
these three guys will be perfect for keeping one of the doors from blowing shut
At another house I picked up these wonderful hankies
I love this one! "How to Speak French" - this one might have to be framed.
this rose hanky and great little wooden caddy. The nesting benches in the first photo were found while I was nibbling away on my egg rolls. Of course they did not fit in my little cart so I loaded up my treasures and braved the wall to wall traffic to pick these up. They'll get a little makeover and can be found at Piecemakers August 1st
Now for the pièce de la résistance! This little number was delivered to me by my friend Linda. She's a trashing buddy but we went separate ways on Sat. She picked this up for $30. Yes you read that correctly. She though I could either keep it or take it to Piecemakers. Well, for now it's staying with me...I'm slowly moving pieces into it...
lot's of my cream pottery...I just love the details on the glass door.
Not sure if I will paint it yet....what do you think?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stop over to a Bushel and a Peck for a wonderful give-away!
