Something Old is New to Me!

Last week my husband and I went to an estate sale.  This is a new adventure for us together since his work days got changed.  I showed the scale I got last week and I hinted there was something else.  Well, after I cleaned this item I carried it, (and it is rather heavy) all over the house.  WHERE was I going to put this?  I really wanted it in the kitchen, but I have no walls.  And then today it hit me!  Hubby hung it up and then the squealing began.  How did I live without this?  I am in love!

Ok, I know some of you are squealing now too.  I got this gorgeous antique for $15.00..and actually, my hubby saw it before me.
See the little bottle and rose up at the top.....the rose was Hobby Lobby find.  It is burlap...and the bottle is the lightest blue....a neighbor gave it to me when he found out I like bottles.

 Now, this isn't the greatest shot, but I wanted to show you where it is in the kitchen....

Ok, one other stop I made.  There is a precious store near me called the Rustic Hutch.  I really have to contain myself, because I just don't need all the pretties.  But these coasters had to come home with me.  (Shelia, I KNOW you love this first one!)

I put the antiques one near my little table in the Living room for my drink while watching TV.  Oh, it is so cute.  Just put all those things together and you are speaking my language!

We have enjoyed the estate sales so much, I think it is going to be a regular Saturday morning activity.  Hubby is so funny though when he sees things that he can't believe someone is granny's undies!! I am used to it already!!

Have a great week.  I am thanking the Lord each and  every day for feeling good, eating good, walking and driving....never take those things for granted.

Life is Wonderful!

I love that Ceekay! What are you going to keep in it? Are they little drawers or cubbies? You found the perfect spot.

Now have you actually seen grannies undies for sale or is that what you call stuff you don't like?

Susan said...

Ceekay, I am praising God for you and with you that you are able to have fun!
I just wrote on another blog that I thank God every day for his blessing to me. I take nothing for granted any more.
Your antique is gorgeous. I love the rose you found at Hobby Lobby and the bottle is so pretty.

I like your wee cabinet...glad that you found a nice place for it. I like the graphics on the coasters, too. Gratitude is so very important to health and happiness. You are right to remind us.

Good Morning Cee Kay
I just caught up on some of your last few posts...I love the spice box and it is perfect there under the cabinet...Isn't it amazing how many hearts and heart shapes we can find around our house when we start looking....the little sign with Bently on its is so cute...this arrangement with the irons and spools got me thinking about my Mom's old ironing board and what I might do with it.....I pray for your continued good health....

That is such a great find, Ceekay. I just love the little tiny drawers. I've seen people sell some strange things, but never granny's panties. lol I'm even more amazed by what some people will buy! I'm so glad that you're happy and feeling well. God is good all the time!
