favorite find for me was at a thrift store I found the cutest little plant stand. It's rustick look and unique base made it a perfect addition to my bedroom for a little side table. :)

I found two Fenton hobnail milk glass vases at a garage sale. Unfortunately, the woman knew what she was doing so I didn't get a phenomenal deal, but I love them nonetheless.

This is gorgeous! Recently I came across 6 antique balloon back chairs in great condition for a great price. I am still giddy about it!

Design Esquire said...

What a beautiful bowl! My favorite find was a console table at an estate sale. I'm glad I could give it a good home!

A $3 wood and brass mini-side table. Love those cute salt & pepper shakers you have in your shop.

My favorite finds always come from a great store here in Indianapolis - its called Doc's! It is an architectural salvage yard - or so they say - I call it heaven on earth! I have found so many neat pieces here - a neat mirror, some great door handles and I'm eyeing a great mantle that i'd love to do eventually do something with outside in my back yard! The bowl is fantastic - thanks for sharing!

My favorite find right now is an antique chalkboard I just bought off Etsy. So cute in my kitchen!

Jamie said...

My favorite find was a love seat my grandma put in storage in the 70's. Beautiful clean lines all it needs is new upholstery.

Jessica said...

One of my favorite finds was a table at a garage sale that I used in college and just recently painted white.

Mommy Harris said...

I got this cute little 'Cinderella' make up table for my 2 year daughter for $10! I later found out it's a collectible worth over $80! Whoo hoo! Gotta love it.

Also I found a cool vintage chandelier for my daughter's room that I painted white.

Jacqueline said...

I love finding old violins!!

Anna said...

I found two vintage side chairs ($60) that I've reupholstered myself three different times with fun fabric!

My personal favorite find is a old drop side hall table that my grandmother gave me. I love it and it seems to be the exactly the right size for exactly where I need to put it everywhere I have lived.
My favorite find of yours is the spoon handled silver mug--wouldn't it be so cute with a tiny succulent planted in it?

Thanks for the giveaway!

Erin said...

One of my favorite finds (although I have to give my mother-in-law credit for actually finding it) was a white ceramic cookie jar that is similar in shape to the giveaway bowl. It looks beautiful on my black bookcase or anywhere else in the house!

EASY!! I scored an (obviously) old and (obviously...in a good way) used solid wood wash board for $6 at an auction that Mom and I just happened upon! I have yet to find anything remotely close to my little beauty!
I hope I win...I just started a collection of all white (any)things for my great grandmother's china cabinet! You can reach me at hollieniccole@hotmail.com!!

FOR THE SAKE OF TIME said...

My favorite find was one of my baby dresses in my father's old navy bag. What a treasure considering it was over 50 years old and still in perfect condition.

Amanda said...

My favorite find is a set of small mugs with fruit cartoony characters on them that my husband remembered having as a kid. We rarely drink from them, but they always bring back good memories for him. :)

Lilee said...

pretty blog!

Nikki said...

I found a cute milk glass bowl on www.alifesdesign.blogspot.com for free! ;)

My greatest find was a milk glass ben and jerry's punchbowl with 11 matching mugs for $16.

Janet said...

100 Year old table that my Great Grand Mother made soap on. Has some lovely stains and grooves from the process

LaNa said...

My diningroom table that I got from my father. It was one he used growing up and had belonged to his great grandparents. It's got a lot of history which you can see in the different knicks on the surface. I love it!

My husband and I love the Wine countryfor it's beauty and the restfulness that we feel when we are there. We walked into a little store in Guerneville (I think it was this town) and saw the cutest pair of salt and pepper shakers. We had seen something similar at a store in our part of the country for much more than the store in California was selling them at. We knew it was meant to be.

Christina said...

A beautiful huge teal and gold/brown rug that I have in my living room, which I found at an outlet store for a great deal, and a few weeks later I found pillows that compliment the rug perfectly.

Heather said...

I once came across a beautiful red scalloped serving bowl that was made in Italy ... at a GARAGE SALE! I wasn't quite sure if it was a serving bowl or a flower pot since it was a bit dingy when I bought it. But today, it is our "go to" serving bowl and it brightens up the table every single time we use it. Just lovely.

Claire said...

I'm in loooove with milk glass - so I think I'd have to say my favorite find was two years ago, at a garage sale - when my collection began. Now I've got shelves of it (but I've never seen this piece!)

Ashley said...

My favourite find was a sewing desk I saw in an alley while riding my bike home. Once I made it home, I jumped in my car and drove back to get it, still in my bike gear! I can't believe someone was throwing it out!

Beks said...

Im still searching for my all time FAV find, but pretty happy with this antique bench I discovered on Craigs.

Lovely Little Nest said...

Yes, please! :)

My favorite find is a black and white pinstrip lampshade I found in Ikea's scratch and dent section...for $3! Check it out on my blog :)

Sarah said...

My favorite find so far is my modest collection of Blue Ridge Pottery in the Mardi Gras pattern. I love that they are hand painted and think they add a whimsical and sweet touch when mixed in with my other dishware. Thanks!

Anna See said...

My favorite find has to be my dining room table and chairs. 7 pieces for 44 dollars at the thrift shop. I made them over and am so happy with them.

Mai-Brit at ThisFullLife.com said...

One of my favorite recent finds is this great nightstand that I was able to redo on the cheap.

Love your blog - always an inspiration.

Rebecca Stone said...

One of my favorite finds were "beach bottles". They are a little set of 6 that can go just about anywhere and always remind me of sun and sand.

Leftturnyielder said...

I just found really cute vine pumpkins tonight at Target for 2.50. Similar ones are at Crate and Barrel for 19.95 and 29.95!! Love them!

Patricia said...

I found an antique mirror tray with lace-like metal work around the edges. Perfect place to put my jewelry on top of.

Down Pillow said...

One of my favorite finds was a Vogue poster book full of vintage Vogue covers, which I took apart & framed for my bedroom walls.

Rebecca@Harmony and Home said...

I love the blue and white salt and pepper shakers. Lovely! I love the milk glass bowl as well. Good luck with your etsy shop!

Linda at Lime in the Coconut! said...

I love that liitle silver mug in your shop...great images. Fun shop!

One my fave recent finds were a couple of seltzer bottles with silver nozzles that I brought home from Argentina this week!
