Some Favorite Finds




This was a brown iron color, nothing a little spray paint and tea stain couldn't handle.


This was gold, again I used spray paint and tea stain,
and YES the acorn lives in there year round!

My ball of YUM makes the best topiary!

I keep candy in the center one... shhhhhhhhhh

You find THE most AMAZING treasures, Jen! My goodness! I LOVE how you are using your ball of YUM, too! It made my heart soar to see it in it's new lovely home!:) Lori

Jes said...

Oh my word!
Love all of it! Is there a special shop you go to? Or just anywhere? You've got *the eye*. ;)

Jennifer said...

I love your great finds! I love little chairs. I really like the rag ball in the one pic. I am assuming you made it. If you did would you let me know. I think it would make an awesome Kissing ball!

hey...Thanks for the help....I guess the lighting in the pic makes it look like choc. but really it is a wine color...would you use that color you suggested with the wine. The tablecloth on the table is the color of my walls.

Love your finds....I got a few good ones today.

Have you shared how to make a yum ball?...this looks like something I could actually handle...

Rambling Girl said...

Thanks so much for your suggestions! Ok another question would you use the green that is in your little chair in your top picture on this post...I like the fun instead of the elegant...I have that in my dining room...sort of a goldish color but did not want to use that in the bedroom also.

Seriously, I had no idea just how *small* those chairs are. Wow...

"finds" are the best!!! This morning I delivered an adorable dressed up pink pig tea pot full of M&M's, to a friend that just had surgery on her ankle. Tea pot - $4.00, M&M's - not much, her thrilled response - PRICELESS (she collects tea pots).

Oh! I did Goodwill today! I go every Friday, it's empty at lunch time cause everyone is running around paying their bills....hehe.

I also went to another fave thrift store of mine, where I found a SWEET frame for $2.50 and a tattered scarf for 25 cents. The colors.........fab!
