Latest finds (and one of them has ears...)

I've had great luck at garage sales lately... I can't believe how much good stuff I have amassed just these past couple of days, and all the finds I am showing here were found right here in my little hometown, and out of only 3 garage sales (which is good because that's all the time I had during this crazy busy week!!)! And the prices were even better, I even scored some great free junk!

This awesome old crib will be a great display for my pillows, after it gets a good cleaning!

This is an old radio cabinet, I've already painted it, "shabbied" it up and it is ready to go to Monticello!

I love this dresser, it's very heavy and it will most likely get a coat of paint....

This sewing machine cabinet looks wonderful as a table!

Love, love, love the old trifold mirror!!! And the end table already came with the shabby treatment, all it needs is a crystal pull and, done!

Look at all these great vintage finds, I love the long suitcase at the bottom, it is lined inside with a robin's egg blue flannel....

How exciting to find an old schoolhouse desk! I would keep this one if I had a place for it...

Love the detail in this old floorlamp!! The top repeats the pattern...

But, I have to admit, the most exciting find of the week was this adorable polish bunny we found at a garage sale...!! I had my six year old son with me and he kept asking me to please, please, PLEASE get him one... I said no twice, then I thought.... Why not? Her name is Eva (my son chose her name) and she is the sweetest little creature!! Who could resist those smoky little eyes...?!

P.S. Lisa and I will be setting up for the Coburg Antique Faire on Saturday, September 12th, and are looking for a recommendation on a place to stay that night (the show is Sunday, the 13th). Does anyone have a hotel suggestion, or maybe know of someone who would rent a room for a night?!!! I appreciate any input you might have!!!

P.P.S. I've had quite a few people ask me about the vintage pantaloons I wore to Tarte last weekend.... Believe it or not, I bought them on Ebay about a year ago, and was delighted that they actually fit me!! Who knows, maybe I will have to start making some to sell on my (soon to be open) Etsy store!!!


  1. Eva! I love that name. You did get lots and lots of goodies. But, my fav would be the bunny! ~Mindy

  2. Rabbits make wonderful pets - I had one in my classroom for 2 years! Did you know they can learn, quite easily, to use a litter box????

  3. You sure did score some great things. Makes me wish I had gone to some garage sales today too. That bunny is too darn adorable. I bet the kids are in heaven.



  4. Cool stuff! Love your new addition!
    Hugs, Lisa

  5. You have beautiful taste! One day I hope to get over and see you :)

  6. Great stuff!! The sales around here are really getting bad...I haven't found anything *good* for a couple of weeks.

  7. You did find a lot of great things. My favorite is Eva she is so cute. I am glad you changed your mind. Keep us posted on her growth. Love the name too! Sandi

  8. Isabella, wow you really did well. The bunny is precious, I don't think I could of said no either. My daughter wants to know where to find pantaloons like yours, you wore last Saturday.

  9. What Excellent finds. You did look adorable at Tarte, hope you do make some of those pantaloons. The bunny is best. We just got a new kitten. She was going to be a Barn cat but my girls and I fell in love with her personality.
    Blessings, Erin

    Have the bunny "sprinkles" made you pause yet in your decision? :)

  16. Hello Isabel,

    More lovely things!! I like that Radio Cabinet and the old mirrors. Oh, and the bunny is adorable!

    I wanted to let you know that I blogged about you today for the Pink Saturday weekly event that I'm a part of. You have so many lovely PINK things that I couldn't resist showing some of them. :0)

    Drop by when you have a moment...

    Have a great day,

    The bunny is adorable.

  19. The bunny is so SWEET! And your finds are FABULOUS! What a great day...

  20. Eva doesn't know it, but she is one lucky bunny to get to come live with y'all. Buggs never had it so good!
    Love everything and yes, I agree...your pillows will look fantastic in that darling bed.
    I gotta tell you...when I first looked at that one photo of the desk lamp, I thought it was Captain Hook's "HOOK"!!! I did a double take!

  21. Oh my, Eva is so cute. I love bunnies. My children had two when they were little. What fun finds!

  22. Hi Isabel, you have had the busiest summer that you make me feel downright lazy!! Great finds. Garage saleing here is null and void in the too hot Florida summer, but I am looking forward to it starting back up in the Fall. ~xo~Janet (P.S. Eva is so darling:-)

  23. That bunny is adorable. I know your son will have so much fun with him.
    I love everything you found. I think you also found some lovely things. I do wish I lived closer to you so I could come visit.

  24. Girl you are bringing the JUNK!! And I am loving it, BIG score!! Love the bunny, I brought one of those home one day back a year ago while out junking, too funny!! Hugs, Janna
