SUNDAY ~ Show N Tell


Show N Tell Sunday

I JUST love Show N Tell Sundays...and again this week we are sharing with our Blogland viewers our Favorite(s) Flea Market Finds. Our Hostess Heidi of Birds of a Feather...has been gracious to name and host this weeks event...THANK YOU Heidi!

For me there is never just one. Now I really don't have any Flea Markets near me, but I have some wonderful thrifting places I attend regularly along with a wonderful place in Ann Arbor, Michigan called Treasure Mart! Many of my finds are usually for me to repurpose and paint roses on. But I do find wonderful things to incorporate into my home as well!

I decided to go through my master bedroom/bath areas and show you some of my treasured finds and how I have used them.... so here goes!

Oh..for those who are watching my Craft Room's another sneak peek at 2 pieces that I have created a hutch out of...neither came together, but these were pieces that I have painted to match. The 60's buffet was given bun feed and a coat of heirloom white..$35, the top was a shelf that also was painted and I got it for $30.
Isn't this the most beautiful sham...I have a set on my bed...$5 for both!
OH My Goodness....this find is right at the top for me...a vintage flour sack quilt was snagged for $12.95...and to think I almost did not buy it! It graces the end of my bed right now.
I wanted you to see that the pale yellow chenille rose pattern spread on my bed, snagged for $3...the quilted shaby the sweet chenille bunny is leaning on was $5 in the clearance at Marshalls!
My sweet friend Rhea let me borrow her idea of taking a vintage spoon holder and turning it into a hankie holder...I just love the vintage hankies...many were anywhere from .50c - $3...I just had to have places to show them...
This rack was a trash pick and I painted it creamy white and then drapped more of my vintage hankie collection over it.
These are a collection of vintage pillowcases...many with the crocheted edging...some where from my sweet grams who is now 94 and still knitting! But I have also picked many up from sales and thrifting too.
Oh I just HAD to have this lamp. It was from Treasure Mart $10...and the rose artist in me was not leaving with out it! It resides by my side of the bed!
I snagged this Lady Head vase at the Salv Army for $2.99! The vintage handpainted hair holder is something I cannot remember where I got but I am sure the price was right! The mannequin I painted and added the base and top she holds some necklaces!
Boxes...I have a thing for boxes...many of these were picked up for nothing..and I just love how they all go together...I also repurposed this vase, which was originally a peach color I painted it pink and added pink roses to it. CHIC!

The piece above and below were just given to me...I have added roses and one in my sitting area in my master bedroom and the other resides by my side of the dressing area in my vanity. A wonderful repurpose of an old kitchen cup holder...holds my bracelets! And more collected heart shaped boxes.
This is the last piece...I have so many more...but there others for you to visit! I have taken a garage sale picture frame and painted it white. Covered a sturdy piece of cardboard with batting then hot glued it all together with this pink moire fabric to house my pins and fancy rhinestone necklaces! Great craft projects and very easy to do!
Thanks for stopping by..hope you enjoying my many finds and how I have used them...have a blessed day!

I just love your hankies and how you have them displayed! Great idea with the hutch, combining two unmatched pieces!

Hi Lorena, wow you sure do have some treasures! My weakness is the embroidered pillowcases. I love how you have them all stacked up like that. I will have to try something like that for mine. I have one christmas one, DH has to have something different because I get the christmas one. He laughs about it. I love the old feedsack quilts, another of my favorites! Hankie displays are so cute!
Blessings, Shirl
