New Finds

A few treasures I have found in the last couple of weeks...



a vintage bath thermometer... 
I found this on Etsy via Firecracker Kid Primitives, Carol featured this on her blog one morning... I just had to have it. 
I found a couple more on Ebay and they wanted $180.00 for them, I paid $10.00... score.

a centering tape measure and the greatest little invention I have seen yet...

you slide that little bubble to your mark and tap the nail to mark your spot,
no pencil required... so easy I felt like I was cheating... lol
  
I used it to install this wall lamp today in my bedroom and it worked fantastic...
it saved so much time

I found this at one of the consignment shops by my work no lunch that day... I actually bought it for the washroom but I didn't like it... now it has found a home in the guest room.

I love the shape and the neutral colour...

Is it the time of the year or is it just me... It is getting harder and harder to find prim treasures?

Thanks for stopping by...

Hugs, Deb

Another funny thing about blogging and sharing; I had never seen a thermometer like that one before until this past Sunday, when I was at an auction. Does that happen to you all? Sometimes, I haven't really "seen" something until others bring items to my attention. Another plus about this blogging world.
I think all those shows about picking are going to hurt the true pickers among us. The local Goodwill's prices have gone through the roof lately and it is harder to find little, inexpensive treasures. Me no likey.
