Different shades of blues and greens

My friends and I went to
a very jammed packed Estate Sale

Found this vibrant green bottle with
a really cool lid...

 Love, love this aqua colored demijohn(?)

Lots of jars and a cute
shabby light green table. 

 Couldn't pass up this iron cutie!

Sweet corbels!!...should I paint them?
Those round tin things are
music lift the top lid
to store jewelry.
The metal insurance box, white doorknobs
and cute blue basket!

Chippy blue!!

Love all the different shades of green and blues!

Have a great weekend,

PINK sewing machine

Are you as excited over this PINK sewing machine as I am?
I bought it with the intention of selling it but.......

It's either from 1956 or 1957...have to research more.
Perfect for a craft room!!

 I bought the mannequin man for
a friend but she didn't want it
so it will end up at The Emporium this
Pretty colorful creamers and
some really cool shoes.

 I have a collection of these cuties.
One of them is marked Germany.

A perfect picnic basket...too
dang cute and in great shape to
pass up.

Did you find any goodies yet?

Mosaic birdbath

I found this cute table top birdbath
and knew I had to mosaic it.

I'm thinking I should have
added pieces to the base too.
Oh time!

It will be at The Antique Emporium
by this afternoon.

Have a great Sunday...

Heart shaped bird cage find!!!

It was a good day at
the flea today.

Love this three legged ~three tiered
table lamp. It does need some
TLC but still a great find..oh
and it works too!!

What do you think of the green color
on the iron shelf?
I would never have picked that color but
I might's cute!

Super cute hand made mosaic birdhouse.
All of the above will be at The Emporium
by tomorrow.

 Cute huh?

This is a keeper...a heavy iron
heart shaped bird cage.

As you can tell the Shepherd's hook
is not sturdy enough for it.
It will have to hang under one of
the Oaks.

The Germany majolica piece is also a keeper but
the rest you will see at The Emporium.

The Antique Emporium
625 Florida Ave.
Cocoa, FL

If you do call please let them know it's
in my room...

I finished Gessoing the cement pieces...
will show you later.

Happy Hunting...

Mod Podge and Thrift Finds

My errands took me to a part of town
I don't normally frequent.
And since I was already there
why not stop at the thrift stores.

A poodle cookie jar was a great find!

Love her expression...haha

I don't normally come across Diego Rivera
prints but when I do they come home with me.
This will be added to my collection.

I had a heck of time carrying this cement (?)
wall pocket...

It will be painted with white
and gray gesso...

Another heavy cement piece...
Gesso for sure!!!

From this...

To This...

I used ASCP Old White along with
white and dark wax.

Then I Mod Podged a
vintage FL map and FL postcards
on the top.

I went ahead and ordered a piece
of glass to protect the top.
It should be at The Emporium by
tomorrow afternoon!

Linking up to:

Life is Good...

Great flea finds

Even though I didn't spend
much time at the flea this week

I still managed to find some
great stuff!
A green vinyl wooden stool
in great condition!

Marcia, Marcia,
She's perfect for my hats.

This heavy white iron headboard
is heading outside...too
bad I couldn't find the baseboard!!!

Back to painting....

More later, have a great week,

Fan back wicker chair...

This wicker fan back chair
was a great find!!!

I am undecided if it's a keeper...

A needlepoint pillow with lots
of color...reminds me to start sowing
sunflower seeds.

A vintage turquoise sewing box
full of wooden spools and buttons...
these are big sellers for me.

Tomorrow is our Fancy Flea and Farmers Market
at The Antique Emporium
625 Florida Ave.
Cocoa, FL

See ya there!!!
