Recent Finds

Happy New Year!!  Recently,I was able to go back to my favorite resale shop with Christmas money in hand, so exciting.  I found the perfect cabinet for our powder room, which had no storage.  It was even the right color, although, I was not against having to paint in order to find the right cabinet.

Then we found bedside tables, solid wood, marked down to 2 for $12!  At first I thought I would paint them this spring, but now I like the dark wood.  Besides none of our bedroom furniture is painted.  I do not mind the mixed wood tones.  These tables were just what we needed and had been looking for.

I also bought a replacement spoon rest.  My free one from Good Will chipped beyond repair, unfortunately. This one is Fiesta Ware, made in America.  It will last for a long time.

And lastly, we had been given a lamp, but it did not have a harp or shade.  We finally found the right parts and put it on the desk in the office.  I know the shade is kind of modern and my furniture is more traditional, but I liked how it looked, so that was that.

I really enjoy making a home via the resale shops!  I hope to go again soon, when the weather improves.  I am looking to add to my 1970's Correlle.
