Rusty Rave Monday - Latest Prodigious Procurements

As you know, my sister came the weekend before Valentines Day. We had a most enjoyable time, and "thrifted" our way through several different places. Following are some of my finest finds:

This AeroPak vintage suitcase is my most favorite item of the week. I am really excited about this one...found it at the Brass Armadillo Antique Mall for $19.99! Woo hoo! From what I can tell it is from the 1940's. How cool is that?

I added to my collection of pretty plates...

...and found another cute silver creamer!

It was my sister's birthday and she brought me a gift! This cute little pouch goes perfect with my frenchy bathroom decor,

and this little gem was inside it. She made the fun little bauble and I plan to attach it to the bathroom window treatment once I get it all sewn up.

Another one of my weaknesses is decorative pillows...these were at a garage sale for about $2 each!

I have been looking for a die cast metal bird bath and found one at Goodwill. It was all white and I found an easy way to rust it up a bit. I will be blogging about that on Friday, so stay tuned.

Cute frames are also something that I collect...This and all the following articles are from Goodwill , as well. I can always find great things there, and it is literally a thrill for me to retrieve these used treasures.

This frame will most likely get painted a different color.

This lamp will probably get re-painted, as well, (and get a new shade)...I don't know what I will do with it yet, but you can always find a use for a cute lamp!

This simple candle stand holds many possibilities, and without question, it will be re-painted white. One of my ideas for its use is as a base for a large platter to become a cake stand!

Lastly, my youngest daughter will be thrilled with this fantastic doll chair. It is in excellent condition and will match her room perfectly. (Shh, it's a mid-week surprise for her!)

I love it all Maggie! I am especially crazy about those ceramic bunnies you have. We really did find some great stuff that day. My trunk was full! I am still trying to figure out what to do with all the things I brought back. Not only did I get stuff with you, but Leslie, sent me back with many wonderful things. Can't wait until we can do it again someday.
