Saturday Treasures

A Saturday without the flea market!! Alas!! What will I do with myself? 
Well, I'll stop at an Estate Sale on my way over to Brenda's.  And look what I found!!
Two pink and white chenille bedspreads for $2.00 each, two children's chairs, an old wooden window frame, a pretty crocheted potholder and a salt shaker!! 

Not too bad!
I also got Brenda an old vintage wooden ironing board.  We had just been talking about those a week or so ago.  She mentioned how she would like to have one.  So, now she has one.

The two little wooden children's chairs are so cute.  They are really small.  They will make 1st Birthday Chairs for some little one.  One of them had one of the spindles gone out of the back, but Mr. John already has it repaired.  He's so good!
The crocheted piece is a basket that is open at the top.  I have seen some of these that held potholders, so I assume that is what it is for.
These two pink and white chenille bedspreads are much more pink than they look here.  They will make some pretty pillows.
Can't wait to show you what I'm going to do with the old wooden window frame.  Hopefully, I'll have it done by mid-week.
So, I delivered the ironing board to Brenda, played with her pups and came home.  Miss Bella is loving the cooler weather and wanted to play ball.  So we did.  She plays catch several times a day and when she is finished, she just lays down and is done.
Till next time, Judy


  1. Oh, the sweet little wooden chair! John even fixed the chair on his birthday...

  2. Cooler weather? Oh I am so jealous. Wish we would get some relief. I feel it never will come. So glad you are there for Brenda. What a blessing to her.

  3. Awesome finds! Can't wait to see what you do with the chairs! I never find anything good at garage sales! Well thanks for sharing! It has inspired me to slow down when I drive by a garage sale to see if there is anything good. I guess it would be better if I actually got up early and actually got out of the!

  5. Hi Judy, I have been admiring your little elf at Brenda's and its buddy at Claudia's! They are adorable! I am in love with those chenille bedspreads. When I was little I had an old one on my bed that had belonged to my grandmother. I used to pull the threads out, one at a time...I don't know why..but when my mom found out I was in big trouble! I wish I had that bedspread now. Linda
