Fun Finds...

We have had another rainy, stormy week...but I still had some fun finds at a few garage sales and a thrift store!  Isn't this a lovely vintage clutch purse?  The sequins are beautifully iridescent... my daughter has claimed this one for her special day...

One find I kept for myself, was this lovely old ironstone platter...

with its beautiful fine crazing and violets decoration...

This old metal medicine cabinet had a great tarnished mirror and chippy finish with aqua paint showing through!  I plan to add a vintage glass knob...

Vintage folding racks are always useful...this one is very large...

and I love little old whisk brooms...decorative and useful.

I found a great looking vintage scale...

But not only that one, but another with a different color tray!

Non-identical twins!

Hope you've had some fun finds this week, too!  Thank you for stopping by and for all of your sweet comments!  It is truly appreciated!

I am joining Debra at Common Ground for Be Inspired
