Week End Treasure Hunt


I found some pretty neat stuff on my treasure hunt this week

I have always admired silver turkey platters with a dome lid in the antique stores,   but they are always so pricey I never dreamed that I would ever find one in my price range!     

I spotted this one at an estate sale Friday

It was love at first sight....... 

They are often called meat platters with a cloche too

Well,   it was in my price range and it came home with me!

H walked into the kitchen while I was photographing my treasures and seemed surprised to see a chair on the island!    I thought he knew me better than!       After being married to me so long,   nothing I do should surprise him!

This hand painted folding chair caught my eye.......

I need another chair like I need a hole in the head,    but who could resist this?     

I found these gold chargers at the same estate sale as the turkey platter.

All 8 of them had my first and last initial on them......Penny Phillips!      They were $1 each and I bought all they had!

This gorgeous plate was at the same sale that I found my chair at.

H found a Texan nut sheller at the same sale.     We have a big pecan tree in the back yard and he had been looking for a sheller and was glad to find one.

Where did you find all the flowers.......... you ask!    

I didn't find them at a yard sale......I got them for Mothers Day! 

 I've been enjoying them all week on the pass thru and I wanted to share them with everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day........

And I hope you found some of the treasure you have been looking for over the week end!

I need to get that chair off the island.......where can I put it!!!!!
