Samedi Trouvailles De Brocante à domicile De Matin






Mum and I did our usual Saturday morning garage sales and came home with some fabulous finds...

Our first stop was a multi-family garage sale packed to the brim with home decor items. I came across a gorgeous red enamel fisherman's lantern from Pottery Barn for $1 and a wire purse and pair of shoes, which I will place next to my wire dress form...I think it will look très chic!

Then I came across a gorgeous vintage tray that was tossed to one side...and I snagged it for 50 cents! I have something creative in mind...you all know how I like taking different pieces and giving them a twist, and the shape and design of this is perfect for what I have in mind...I'll show you the result tomorrow! But first, I'll give you a few hints as to what I may be doing with it:

  1. It takes 24-hours to dry

  2. You probably loved doing this as a child

  3. It's silver and black and write all over!

Now I'm heading off for a girls night. Tonight we're off to see 'License to Wed' which I've heard is hilarious, stuff our faces with buttered popcorn and then finish off the night with a trip to a dessert bar! Have a fabulous night, ladies!

Hi Kate :)
Great things you found. Love that silver tray. It`s so much fun digging around in vintage places. I loved the book and the movie of Angelas Ashes.
Thankds for coming to visit!

Kate, thanks for stopping by my blog. I love reading about everyone's vintage finds.
Hope your mum makes you the chocolate torte - let me know if you like it.

Are all Aquarians chocoholics? I'm both of those too!

Oh, I love that red lantern. what a great find! I'm guessing that you are either decoupaging that tray or making a paper mache one.

You're so lucky to have your mum nearby to go yard-saling with. I live 3 1/2 hrs from my mum, and my sister and her go yard-saling nearly every Saturday. I am very envious...
Lovely blog!
