Cottage Style Party & WLYS - My Finds!

You saw a couple of my World's Longest Yard Sale finds last week, such as the birdcage and melmac bowl.

So here's the birdcage on my front porch…

I just love it with the candles inside!
(and no dusty old plastic ivy)

My blue Ball jars, assorted sizes.

Cobalt blue glassware…love this color!

An enamelware pitcher with measurements inside.
The little old lady I bought it from said she remembers buying it.
I didn't bother to ask when as I didn't want to put her on the spot with a date she might not remember.

A couple of perfume bottles from another little old lady.

Lovely pink depression glass cake plate.

A trio of pink spaghetti hair poodles…love these kitchy pooches!

A set of 4 tea bag rests…so cute!

An apple cookie jar.

A 2 tier stand…the little old ladies at the church sale I bought this from looked at me like I was an idiot when I bought this! 
I love these things!

A yogurt maker which I might keep or not...

An old concrete birdbath for $5…I've been looking for one!
A keeper!

2 old galvanized seed trays with great chippy paint.

An old wire basket with old books from the 1800's.

There is still a little bit left that I haven't had the time to deal with like Christmas stuff, an old wood crate, some other smalls I plan on keeping.

While I love all of the stuff above, most of it will end up in my Etsy shop.

I bought it with resale in mind and will part with it knowing there is more junk out there!

I just have to find it!

Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party


As you can tell, I'm still playing with my WLYS finds.

It's like Christmas and my birthday rolled into one!

But it hasn't all been play, I am proud to say that I weeded my flower beds in August.

That's right, normally I just give up and embrace the weeds by now.

Not this year!

You might say I turned over a new leaf…

or a few…

Let's party!

This sweet pie safe belonged to Kathy's grandmother!
It is filled with her wonderful thrifted finds.

Drop by Kathy's blog Sharing Shadymont to see her pie safe and her jelly cabinet!
And check out her bumble bee dishes!

I just love these dried hydrangeas in this minnow bucket!
The girlie flowers with the burlap bow are so sweet tucked into the old galvanized pail.

This is a true thrifty find that Jane transformed. Visit her at her blog Minnesota Junker to see more details of her charming DIY project!

This pumpkin is a reminder that fall will be here soon.
The surprise is that this pumpkin is made of fur!

I love the touch of bling on it! Drop by Catherine's blog Ornate Splendor to see her fabulous pumpkins. Yes, there are more glitz and glam pumpkins on her blog!

We had poodles when I was growing up, so of course we had poodle dresses, poodle purses and poodle figurines! :) Thanks for bringing back the memories. I hope you have an Awesome Wednesday!
