Week End Treasure Hunt

I enjoyed a very successful week end treasure hunt......plenty of yard sales to check out. 

I bought this shabby chic comforter set to make cushions for the wicker settees on the back porch.

The reverse side of the comforter is a pretty pink plaid.    The ruffled bed skirt is the same plaid fabric and it came with 1 floral sham.      It's a lot of fabric to use in my projects for $5.

The yard sale where I found the stripped hat box had about 15 of them to choose from.....$5 each.    I picked this one out because it contained gloves and hats.    

There was two white vintage hats in the box and several pair of gloves..     

The black velvet gloves with the rhinestones around the wrist are my favorite pair.

The hat box also had a couple of vintage bonnets in it.

My treasure hunt also included a trip down the 90% isle at Hobby Lobby.    I'll share what I found there on another post.

Flower basket for $3

I have a metal wreath holder like this one on the front door,    but I can always use another one.

Thanks for stopping by........come back soon!

  7. Love the bedding buy; new stuff is SOO pricey. One of my other faves were the blue gloves; the flower motif is called Irish Rose; one I actually learned how to crochet (in yarn, not fine thread); I made a baby crib blanket! Love it in doilies, too! I learned to appreciate things Irish from my late mother-in-law, an O'Malley!
