Saturday Treasures 12/1/2012

 
This last Saturday I went to the Tulsa Flea Market at the Fairgrounds and one garage sale.  Found some goodies.
 

I'm always a sucker for dishes of any kind.  And of course, salt and pepper shakers.
 
And buttons, buttons, buttons.
 
 
Woo-hoo Claudia!! Two pieces of McCoy.  The little dog planter and the white bowl.
 
I know that everyone does not get as excited as Claudia and I do over McCoy, but it sure does thrill us to find a piece of it.
 
And now, drumroll..............
 
 
I got this Victorian headboard that had alot of tacky paint on it for my guest bedroom.  Won't it be beautiful with a soft, matte black paint sanded down for aging?  It's over 6' tall.  That room has nothing but antiques in it and the walls are painted red.  Just wait until you see it all redone.
 
NOTE:  Big sale at my Etsy shop (see button at top of page).  20% off every item!! Use coupon code CHRISTMASSALE2012.
 
And a final note from Bella.  She loved all of your comments but had one more thing to say........
 
 
Enjoy!
 
Till next time, Judy

I wanna come shop with you! LOVE the head board. Glad to see Bella doesn't have it as rough in this pic. She is a doll with or without decor around her neck :)

WOW! What a statement piece that headboard is!! And how about all those buttons! Great finds!

I love EVERYthing you bought at the flea market. I'm a McCoy fan too, although I don't have as much as Cladia. Plus transferware, s&p, buttons...nice.

Claudia said...

Whoohoo! I have that cream piece - it's on my coffee table but I DON'T have the other piece! Lucky, lucky you! Good work, my friend. I love that headboard by the way.

Oh, Bella is so much happier now!

Looks like you got some treasures! I have not been to the flea in a while - past due for a trip.
Thanks for stopping by. With a renovation going on, I would not put up a tree either. Looking forward to seeing what up did.

Tee Hee! I love your practical idea of a wreath around Bella's neck. (and I'd say Bella does, too!)
I am just going crazy over that big old bag of buttons...not to mention the glass jar! I would be a happy camper to ever find that many buttons in one place!
Thanks for sharing, my friend and thanks for your thoughtful comment on my blog.
I hope you are having a great week.
Blessings,
Carolynn
