A Couple of Finds Today!

This morning I decided to hit a few thrift stores. On my first stop I found these wonderful pieces.

They appear to be old and they are quite large measuring 20" tall.

I thought they were pretty terrific so they came home with me.

Don't they have sweet faces?

They have chips here and there, but I think that just adds to these pieces.

I was able to take apart the lawn chair I bought this week-end and add new fabric.

Wow, what a quick and easy job this was.

My kind of job!

I had just enough vintage ticking for the job!

Thank you for stopping by!

Oh, those are fabo! I love them. Are they made of cement? I also love what you did with the chair! I need to re-learn how to sew!

Great finds and their faces are sweet. That is a big one for me. They have to have sweet faces or they creep me out.
Hope your luck continues!

Debbie, those are terrific. Way to score! You did an awesome job on that deck chair and you did it so quickly. With me, I have good intentions, but it always takes me awhile. Thanks for stopping by today. I love it when you visit.

Hi Debbie , I got that same chair this weekend down in Silverton. I have the taupe ticking so I'll use that so we're not twins! I love your sweet children statues - so adorable. Sue
