New Finds 10-06-2009

I hit my fav Sally Ann store today and wow it was a expensive great day... why is it I find things that I really shouldn't buy but can't help myself... Note to self...a lot of this will go directly to the booth... will not pass go... no sitting it on a shelf just to see what it would look like... out the door it goes and no looking back


I am not sure who Warren Kimble is... but isn't this just the cutest little chick you ever did see... Update: did a little research on Vermont artist Warren Kimble... he has a whole line of American Folk Art... this is Penny Chicken and her chicks... all handpainted... SCORE


found 4 of these small silk shades... check out the original price


another small lamp and shade


signed pottery soap dispenser


great little glass jar with glass lid... great for buttons... I also found  a yard of the material shown here... a beautiful worsted wool... will make a great runner.


great piece of history from New Orleans... label on back reads...
"Roofing slates mined in Pennsylvania and transported down the Ohio and Mississipi Rivers on rafts became the roofing material after the disastrous fire of 1795.  Each one was individually hand shaped.  This one came from an old building on Charles Street, dating back to the early 1800's."


wood mirror with shelf... just screaming to be prim(ed)

Small Wooden Masher

Cute Clock... bonus I don't have to paint it

great finds! Our store priced themselves right out of business! They had such high prices, and very little stock. Things that were dropped off at the store, never made it to the floor. Such poor mismanagement. :( Even so, I miss shopping there. It was the nearest thrift store, besides my Peddler's Malls.
You have such talent for painting! Best I can do is stencil, decoupage, and tatouage. LOL
hope your week is going well!
