Vintage Finds

Hello all, I'm back.

I've spent the last week cleaning, crafting and hunting.

I must say I have had some wonderful vintage finds that I am yet to share, but here are some that I found this w'end. Plus later, a look at my ever changing makeshift kitchen.

These lovely stained glass cupboard doors are in need of some repair but for $5.00 each I'm happy. For now though will go into storage in the garage to eventually be used in my future kitchen. I can just imagine them in an overhead cupboard filled with glittering treasures.



Cutesy prints waiting to be hung.


Lovely old table in good condition for it's age, only just a little tlc is needed


Plus matching chair, they'll look spiffy together on the verandah with a cushion or two.

I had to have this shade, even though as yet I don't know where it will go.
I'm not sure if I should have it recovered of keep it original.
The covering is like strips of plastic and is tattered and torn in places but the shape is fab.


Now here are my new cupboards from a garage sale for $20.00 and they are in such good condition.
Previously I had been using my old sewing table, which worked okay but we just didn't have enough space and I'm happy to say it is back to being my sewing table again.

I am loving it.
It's amazing what can come your way when you least expect it.

You have had fun! Those doors are a real treasure. Our Sunday school when I was young had a chair just like that...it was the birthday chair...the birthday person would sit in in and have the happy birthday song sung to them!

The leadlight and the cabinet are fantastic. Isn't it great when you find something you really want/need? It is curbside cleanup here and I have been scouring for a little dresser for miss Liongirl but no luck yet. Can't wait to see the rest of your finds.melx ps i love your breadbin!

Fantastic finds Alison! I love the outdoor setting, certainly a gorgeous place for an afternoon cup of tea. I look forward to seeing what you decide with the sweet shade, and how the leadlight doors look in-situ one day :)
