I went to my favorite Canton Flea Market last weekend with my two moms (mom and MIL) and Sarah and her lovely family even met up with us for a bit! I get giddy to show people my favorite things and I knew Sarah would love this flea market so I was so happy to show it to her!
I picked up these two frames for $15. Sorry this dark picture doesn't show them off better. I'm sure I'm not the only one who feels like they're never at home during daylight hours, sigh. Anyhoo, they have an ivory frame with a light pink accent. I'm brainstorming right now what to paint for them.
Not sure if anyone else has ever noticed but vintage wastebaskets are not only hard to find and even when you do find one they are $$$! I was so happy to spot this one for $15. The flowers are in perfect condition too!
And my favorite find of the day (possibly the year?!)...
A bamboo dresser for only $40!!! Yes people, you can be jealous :). I have 3 dressers in my house already so Sarah actually had to convince me to buy it and I'm so glad she did! It's in great condition. All it needs is some new handles and some high gloss paint. Can you beleive someone put those blue plastic handles on there?! Yikes! It's hanging out in my parents barn for now while I'm dreaming away about how I will paint it. Inky blue with gold? Jade Green? Ice blue? So little time...
I also wanted to share this charcoal drawing I did for my cousin's wedding shower. I was afraid she might not like it but it was a hit! That makes me so happy! It's supposed to look like her dress by Maggie Sottero. I really like the way it looks in this black frame with black matting. I got the frame from Michael's for only $23. I think I will have to go back and get more for my own artwork!
And in other big news, I think I finally found a couch! I was shopping at one of my favorite places, High Fashion Home, last weekend and spotted this beauty...
Isn't she a beauty? Sorry for the awful phone pic. The cushions are down-filled and sooo comfortable covered in a thick gray linen blend, I believe. The nail head accents are the bees knees too. The price isn't as high as you'd think too! Luckily, our tax return is coming soon and we'll be getting it!
The magic continued when I found this perfect suzani fabric for the wing chairs I purchased off craigslist. I will be saving up to buy this in the near future!
Such a successful weekend if i do say so myself! How was yours? any good finds lately?
