Lake House/ Farm House

I've been decorating our lake house with some farm house furniture and I'm loving it.




I just recently found this wonderful farmhouse cabinet for the living area. Just what I've wanted in this space.
I'm going for a elegant french farmhouse look in this home. I think the beautiful glass pieces adds a touch of elegance to the room. I love the large tapastry but what I'm really wanting above the farm cabinet is a really large french mirror. I think every room needs a mirror. I would love to hear your thoughts..... tapastry or french mirror.

















This is one of my favorite pieces in the house. The perfect place to house some of my cherub collection.


I've had this potting bench for years and had never used it. It works great to house my many little pots. I still have some work to do and changes to make here. I have gotten a lot done in the lake house but still have a few more projects to do and will show before and after pictures as soon as I get the time to tackle them. Hope everyone is having a wonderful and Sunday!!!

My Weekend Finds!

My friend Lynda and I went to an estate sale and to a few antique stores in the area Saturday. Here are a few of my finds!
I found these vintage's brooches at 2 different antique stores and they were priced right. Can't wait to get more pures ready so I can use them.
I've been wanting one of these silver pieces and this one was marked half off. The orginal price $24.00 so I got it for haf of that!
I found this vintage luggage at the estate sale.
I love old scales, this was another buy from the estate sale!
These sweet cups and and saucers were bought at the estate sale too. Hope everyone had a great weekend!!!

My Favorite Find At Canton And A Few Other Finds

This was my favorite find of the day at Canton. This sweet little vintage photo album. It's in really good conditon too.
The fastner on it also works, and I just love the colors on it!
I purchased this pitcher a while back. It looks like enamel but it's really heavy, and it's marked made in Italy. I had one last picture to show but it somehow disappeared, so I'll show it for another post! I also want to thank all of our new followers!!!

What A Collection

I recently attended an auction not knowing that that there was an entire collectible bear collection that would be auctioned off. I've always had a thing for these really cute collectible bears, but since I've collected antiques over the years I felt like I shouldn't spend the extra money on yet another collection. But boy did I hit it big time. When the bears finally came up to be auctioned off I bought 4 of them one at $10.00, another at $20.00, $5.00 and one at $3.00 and then the auctioneer asked if anyone would open the bid at $75.00 for the ENTIRE collection and my hand flew up quickly. Well I ended up getting all of the bears left which was most of them for $120.00 with the $120.00 and the other money I spent for the first ones the total came to $158.00. Now I'll quit typing and let you check out these cuties!











This large bear is one of my favorites!








Hope you enjoyed. Have a wonderful day. I'm off now to take somethings to my sweet friend Laurie of Laurie Anna's Vintage Home. Any one headed to Canton this weekend?
