I’ve got a lot of goodies to show off this week! I’ll start with the items that don’t have a complicated story attached to them.
I made a quick stop at Goodwill after work Thursday. I was feeling really indecisive, so I only ended up with 2 items.
Glass Jar $0.99
Hook Board $0.99
The board with the hooks will be an easy project. It looks a little sketchy now, but it was worth 99 cents just for the 2 hooks.
I realized this weekend that I don’t have any casual jackets; they are all long and dressy. A quick trip to Savers on Sunday and my problem was solved. Of course I couldn’t leave without looking at the frames.
The frame is 1 of 5 brass items that I acquired over the weekend. They all have a date with a can of spray paint in their future.
On to the "junk" with a complicated story:
My grandpa is getting re-married in a few weeks (long story). His new wife is starting to move her things in, so they are cleaning house to make room. I’m going to be completely honest; I don’t know how I feel about the whole situation. I really don’t like the thought of some other lady going through my grandma’s things and keeping her treasured pieces. Anyway, my boyfriend and I made the trip up to look through the things they were planning on getting rid of. They weren’t getting rid of much furniture, but I did snag a china hutch and entry vanity (Is that what it’s called? I have no idea).
My parents have graciously offered to bring these 2 pieces down to me after I’ve closed on the house.
forced suggested I take my grandma’s china. It’s a beautiful set and is in great shape. I only noticed chips on one plate and one saucer. It will look great in my new china cabinet.
A pair of lamps (2 more brass items from the weekend) will look great on nightstands in one of the bedrooms.
I grabbed a few kitchen items. You can never have too many glass serving bowls. And I love Pyrex!
This is probably my favorite item from the weekend. Isn’t it beautiful?
Finally, a pair of birds and a pair of candlesticks (the final 2 brass items). My grandma had a whole collection of different bird and animal figurines similar to the yellow one below.
It was a great weekend for “junk”
Coming up this week: I'm showing off one more room in my new house!
