What's on the Kitchen Island this week?

What's on the kitchen island this week?  I usually take my treasures photo's on the island because the lighting is so good!  I found this vintage leather suitcase ($3) at an estate sale last week end.  Somehow I didn't get a post done last week on my treasures, so I just added them in to this post. The lamp shades were also purchased last week end  at the auction ($20 for both)

Some pretty place mats  ($2)

A few small Christmas ornaments ($2) and a vintage tablecloth ($2)

This looks like a vintage coffee pot to me, but it came with tea glasses, so I am not sure! ($3) 

This is some bird net ($1) for a fruit tree, but I had another idea for it!

I saw it as a soft billowing wedding veil!

If this net keeps the birds off the fruit trees, maybe it will keep that spider off my dress form!

So I draped it on my dress form in the bedroom!  Here is the link to my spooky bedroom post if you would like to see more of the wedding dress!

This is where the lamp shades are now.

I got this stand with all the jewelry on it for $1. I plan to paint the stand white later.

Trash or treasure?....I think they are treasures!
