Great finds of the week

Well, it seems like I have been very lazy (and I have) but I still made it out to look for things I don't need. :0) Like this sweet little cake plate made of wood. 

Isn't she lovely. I think she would love to be painted white and shabbied up a bit. 
What do you think? Can't you see a pretty cake sitting here!

Next we have a fun piece. Look at this darling whale, isn't he fun. He would look
great painted white and chippy with maybe beach written on him or a chalkboard.
Let me know what you would do??

How pretty is this little lady. I'm not much into this kind of stuff but really liked her.

Look at this little table... It is a little rough but she is a beaut. 

She is missing her legs :0( but we will give her some sexy ones soon. I went to this yard sale last weekend and asked how much they wanted for this little table, there were about 4 people who said they didn't know because they were still looking for the legs. So when I was finished looking around I again ask what they wanted and the gal said how about $5. Yes I will take her. YAY!!!

I am thinking of painting her white and shabbying her up a little.
What about adding four legs instead of the one???
What would you do??

Do you ever need just a little more storage when you walk in the door. Something to set your purse on or put your hubby's shoes in or just whatever???

With a little help and paint I think it will work just fine for $5.

This is a cute little basket. Even though it isn't Christmas, I picked this up for my daughter. She loves snowmen and I thought it would be great to put a little gift in it.

This little dish caught my eye. She is dainty and pretty. My first thought was to make her into a stacked dish and paint the handle. Not sure what to do here. Just will hold onto her until I figure it out. 

I love fake flowers that look fairly real. Like these, I never pass them up.

What about scrabble!! I never see these at GW or yard sales, so when I saw this one, I grabbed it. So many things you can do with these little wood pieces. 

And for free, my friend gave me several books and cookbooks. This Bible from 1976, love it. Looks brand new. Would be great for projects. A big fat dictionary for several projects too!
Here's the huge Bible!!

And here is the lamp base she gave me, thank you Vic. 

Over all I would say that it was a great haul. Can't wait to get started with these projects and to finish going through those cookbooks. 
Thanks for stopping by and going through my goodies with me. Have a great weekend!

  1. I love that table! Four legs most assuredly. Not sure I would paint it, but then again, I never paint wood. Would love to see the final outcome! Also, I really like that cup...looks like depression era glass but I can't really tell, except I can tell I really like it! Good finds!

    1. Thank you Diane! I just need to find four legs that would look great for it! Yeah, not sure what that dish is either but liked the look and it was cheap, lol.

  2. Wow Cheryl, you did good! Love the cake stand and I think it would be awesome painted and shabbied up! The lamp base is super cool and I know that you will fix that table up dandy! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    1. I know, isn't it great!! I don't see things like this here often, lol. Thanks for stopping by!!

  3. You found lots of goodies! You've got yourself some projects to do. I would do the same things you plan to. On the whale chalkboard you could write, "Have a whale of a time (or day!) Thanks for visiting. Diane

    1. Thank you for visiting, love your blog and thanks for the wonderful comment!!

  4. Those are some great finds. I can't wait to see what you do with the table top!

    1. Thanks Patti, I appreciate you stopping by. Yeah, that table is great, especially when it only cost $5.

  5. What amazing and pretty finds, i love the lamp possibilities, thanks for sharing this on Dream Create and inspire party, This is a new party I am hosting can you add this to your party list, Hugs Maria

    1. I would love to Maria, thank you. Do you have a button for it?

  6. Wow, you were successful! I'm really good at not having time to do what I need to do, but finding time for what I want to do, lol!

  7. Love all your goodies. A wonderful haul. As far as the table, I would take the leg off and put 4 bun legs on, paint it white and age it down, and them use it on a counter. Maybe it's bigger than it looks, so forgive me if it's too big for my idea.

  8. This is a very pretty finds that you shared at my last Fabulous Friday.. I will be taking a break from my party and co hosting with Dream Create and Inspire.. You can link up with that party which is every Wed, just leave a comment on my blog so I know you came to the party! Its huge so I don't want to miss you. Hugs Maria
