More Junk, I Mean Treasures

7.24.2010

Well, it is time to share our junk thrifty finds again. My how time flies. I did go to a couple of flea markets this week to hunt and gather and I did find a couple of nice things.



I found this wonderful solid wood magazine holder for only twenty dollars. I believe it is mahogony. 
I knew it would be perfect in my English style sitting room.





Also found this large old bobbin.


It was only six dollars, which I thought
 was really good for one this large.


It is very chewed up and scratched, but that just makes it better.


Now for my favorite thing of all. I know you are saying what is it? That is the bottom of it isn't it?
Why yes it is.  Anyone recognize this name?


I was just walking through the flea market/antique store and was on the very last aisle without finding anything in this particular store and then I heard it! Yes, I heard it. It was making these clucking sounds so of course
I started to look around and I heard it again.


Yes, it was getting louder and I was getting closer.


And there it was this HUGE covered casserole dish.  A white and yellow chicken casserole dish no less.
I walked over to it and wondered just how much was this going to be??
I just love the basketweave design, too. I feel a tablescape coming soon.


It was only $24 which I did not thing was very bad for something this big and cute.
Yes, I said cute. Just look at that face. Well actually he looks kind of mean, but hey he is cute in my eye and the perfect colors for my house.

Mr. Savvy does call all this stuff junk, but he says if it makes me happy then that is all that matters. Aw, isn't he sweet. I better say that because I found out he is reading my blog at work. Hi  honey!

I am joining the following parties:

Debbiedoos for garagesalen party.
Southern Hospitality for Thrifty Treasures.
Coastal Charm for Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.

Please check out these parties and see what other junk goodies were snagged this week.

Hope your weekend continues to be awesome!

Y'all come back now,

KIM

  7. You did good.Such great treasures. I love your magazine rack, it is just perfect and I love the detail on it. Bobbins are usually quite expensive, so I think you did really well on this. Now of course I love your rooster. White and yellow, couldn't be more perfect. Such a great find. I can't wait to see your tablescape. Hugs, Marty

  20. Totally cute KIM!!~ The mag holder is great, and those are not easy to find, we found ours on ebay and it was around the same amount....but to find one with the style you have is hard..you done good too with that CUTE little chicken:) Thanks for joining in on the party. OMG I lol when I read your comment about my father in law....poor guy, I agree though, I have to tell Mike what you said....

  23. I think it's cute your husband has been reading you from work. I have to remind mine to check out what I've written. That magazine rack is a great find. And the bobbin in a nice size.

  24. I am suprised at that cost on the magazine rack. They are apparently another hot ticket item in our resale and antique stores around here. That rack would be ticketed atleast $50.00 or more here, probably even around $60.00. I always keep my eyes open for magazine racks (as I have so many mags I cannot seem to throw away) and am always amazed at how expensive they are! Especially the nice ones like yours! Love the chicken too! I like his look, very sincere chicken..lol! Can't wait to see the tablescape!

  25. Hubby keeps saying..'your bringing more junk into the house'..I don't think so..it's all treasures!!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. If you ever get tired of the chicken(doubtful, but I'll remain hopeful), then please let me know. I know of a great home for this bird!!(yep, it'd be my house!)

  27. Kim, She is adorable and perfect for your country French kitchen. I think she is going to look smashing on your kitchen table!! have fun dreaming up a tablescape!! Kathysue

  32. Love your chicken, Kim! She is definitely cute.

    The magazine holder is fabulous! I have a couple of lyre tables from that same era, that are mahogany, so, I imagine, is your magazine holder. Great find and price!!

    You did great.
    The magazine rack is beautiful, and finding a covered casserole like that (that size) is awesome.
