Some Fun Finds!

I didn't know how the day would go today.

I set out with my list in hand ready to estate shop.

The first sale I went to was a bit discouraging as everything was overpriced.

There were some great things but I just couldn't do it at those prices.

As you will see the day did get better.

I didn't get a lot of small items but a little larger ones.

But, that's good too!

Here are a few smalls.

One of my most favorite finds were these large pictures, dated 1901 and 1896.

They are quite old the back paper is very fragile.

One is a Paul de Longpre the other one does not have a name but it appears to be the same artist.

I just love his pictures.

Here was a fun piece I found in the garage.

This piece measures about 4.5'x4'.

It needs a little work but I know my #1 can figure that one out!

My next stop I found a wonderful old dresser with a mirror.

This piece is still in the truck so I just snapped a small photo.

Here is a fun piece for the top of a desk or maybe in a studio.

So, all in all a pretty good day!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I almost bought that last piece with your cat sitting on it. Thought it was adorable, but don't have a spot for it at all. Glad it went to you! I totally struck out today.

Sometimes it just takes a few sales to get the ol' mo-jo going.
Love the florals!! The slotted piece looks like something from an old hotel - perhaps for keys or mail?

Have a great weekend!
