Thrifty Finds

Hello everyone!  I can't wait to show you my most recent finds.  I stopped by GW, nothing there that inspired me.  I have not seen anything "good" there since I found my two soup tureens.  So I decided to head over to my favorite consignment shop,  Fun Finds.  And yes it was fun today. The first thing I found was a beautiful red and gold table runner.  I have been looking for a narrow one for my buffet.  This one is just perfect.   And only $8.00, no way could I buy the material, lining and fringe for that price.

Now for something a little more fun.  I am not sure where I am going to put it yet, but it was so pretty I just had to have it.  I think I am going  to paint it white and then decide how to highlight all the beautiful flowers. I am not sure what it is made of , but it is fairly heavy for it's size. It maybe some kind of plaster, not resin or plastic.  I only paid $12.50 - score!

Here's a close up of the flowers.

And my final, and favorite find is this beautiful plaster medilan.  It has such great detail and is so heavy.  I can not wait to paint it, this is going to be so fun to bring out all the wonderful texture and detail  - ok, I will show you.

It was hard to get a good picture of it, it is very bright white. Here are a few detail shots.

So for less then $50, I feel I got some great deals.  So what have you found lately?

Linda at Coastal Charm is celebrating her second year of blogging with a give away - go check it out.


I will be joining these fabulous parties:

Great pieces. I like the medallion. Will you use it as intended or try something different with it?
I havent' had any luck at GW or consignemt shops lately. :( I'm in a dry spot creatively too. LOL poor me. Let me rub elbows with you and maybe your good luck will rub off on me. Hugs,
