New Finds

Things found at local Gw and CL.

First this picture was found at the GW $3.00 no frame

This chair I have had for awhile it was purchased from CL and recoverd for my guest room but that did not work out, my oldest decided he wanted that room and no longer wanted to share with his brother. Why am I showing you this chair. You'll see.

This was the china we had when I was ten years old I got most of it from my mom and purchase the rest from CL ( not for use only decor and to relive my  childhood).price 30 pieces $20

This silver plated teaset   ( Sheridan) was purchased at the Gw for $25.00  I love all the details.
What a pretty handle.

The creamer.
Ok this was the find of the week This frame is 5ftx  4ft, Can you say wowww.The price $20.00

This Chair is my new love I love all chairs but the frenchy ones I love even more  See that was her long lost cousin before, Since they won't be dressed the same.  Don't be fooled by the tattered clothes she wears I have her pictured in some sort of check with nailhead trim. She is solid walnut , Look at her legs (so beautiful) I am on the hunt for a large red and white check fabric. I see the picture and new chair next  to each other when finished.The problem is where .LOL


  1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the chairs! I am about to do a farmhouse dining room, and am on the look out for two chairs to cover in red checks. I have yet to find the fabric, especially reasonably priced. I have googled, and looked, and googled......I ordered some from fabricdirect.com that looked good online, only to find the checks soooo small that you can barely tell they are checks! Keep me posted on the fabric hunt, and let me know if you find any? Oh, and I love that awesome frame too!

  2. Ann, what great pieces you found! I love them all!! Can't wait to see that chair all dolled up! LOL!

  3. Love the stuff you found that frame is GORG!!! 20 are you kidding me! Love it!! Cant wait to see what you do to the chairs.

  4. Gorgeous chairs and that frame To Die For! You have found some great things at great prices. It's always great to meet a fellow gatherer lol.

  5. Wow, amazing finds for sure! I love the frame and can't wait to see what you do with the chair!

  6. What amazing finds....I love the chair! I just recently scored a bunch of silver at our local Goodwill.

  9. You have found some great deals! I can't believe that huge frame was only $20! The things you could do with that! It would make a great mirror or chalkboard.

  10. Hey Ann...I have to go shopping with you! What great finds. I have to do the CL and GW this spring. I once went to the Salvation Army near me - and bought a desk...and I couldn't pick it up (this was last summer) and I have now lost the ticket. Stupid me - I should have gone back the next day. So - they have $80 of mine. I also did that with one CL - I gave a $100 towards a few things and I couldn't pick it up right away...and I still have to call him to pick stuff up. I hope he still has the three things I wanted.

    So - lessons learned - I have to be able to pick it up right away - or else I shouldn't buy it. The CL guy told me I would have to have a strong guy to come back with me (and I would have asked my husband but he is so against me buying anything else...so I have to do it on the sly now!!).

    Glad that you are now following me. I am much better at painting and redoing things that already exist in houses!!! Glad you loved my work!!


  11. These are beyond fab finds Ann! Where on earth did you get that HUGE frame for only $20??? I swear I HAVE to come your way and GW and Restore with ya! You are always finding such fabulous things. Our GW really never has anything. Thanx for coming to party!:)

  12. Hi, Ann! I can't believe you stole that frame for $20! That is a great find. Love that you said you are reliving your childhood through those dishes. That is so true!

  13. That is one honkin' frame. What a steal at 20 bucks. I can visualize the chair now...it will look great re-covered.

  14. The frame is quite a treasure and what a deal you got! I am sure the chair will be beautiful. xo, Sherry

  15. Lots of great finds, Ann.
    Cannot wait to see how your chair looks in red and white buffalo check! One of my most favorites.

  16. Hi Ann,
