We Confess......

We were at it again this weekend.....junkin' our little hearts out!  
We are working hard to bring you some wonderful things for our upcoming Whimsical Wishes show.

First thing Friday morning, I stopped at a local estate sale and found some wonderful vintage bottles and beds......3 wooden and 1 metal.  These will be prettied up with a nice shade of ivory paint.  We'll have a number of vintage wooden and metal beds in both twin and full sizes.

I found this sweet little trophy at this sale.......

We found this old sideboard or buffet at an old farmhouse last week......the doors are a little warped but we're going to take these off.  The details on the legs and embellishments are wonderful.  The ugly veneer will be stripped/chiseled off and it will be painted too.  I can't imagine putting veneer on top of perfectly good wood!  I can't wait to see this little beauty when she's done!

Here's what we found today........there's a vintage wardrobe in there, some fab feather pillows, an old camp blanket, an old tole tray, a couple of old toolboxes, and an old mirror. I also found an all maple hutch.....that I got for a deal....I'm so excited!  I have to pick it up in the morning...... I'll add a picture when it gets home.

Wow it looks like you had a lot of great finds! Would love to see what they look like when they're all kitted up.

Hi Julie and Christa! Can you send me your email address and I can get you that site you wanted.

It was nice getting to meet both of you. Maybe next time we can talk a little longer.

That picture of the vintage beds is cracking me up. Was that out in Camas? If so, I bought one of those headboards to make a bench out of!
