Somethings: Tea Cart, Table, Trees

I've had a jogging stroller for 3 years. Love it for walking. Never actually "jogged" with it until yesterday... when I saw a garage sale sign and 2 large, white, windowless vans heading from the direction of the sale. Some people think creeper vans, but not me. Oh no, they're not creepin', they're driving away with garage sale items that I could have bought!  My mind starts racing, "Ahhh, hurry hurry hurry, run run run, before anyone else gets all the good stuff!" And good thing I did because looksey what I got!
Gold and glass tea cart. Favorite find of the weekend! Can't decide if I should leave it gold or paint it. I kinda want to paint it.
3 tier corner table. Definitely will be painted.
This is a large, wooden, Hamms Beer Sign.  Plan to paint this and add a message or quote. Something like this from Corner House Blog. Or this one from DIY Network that I am obsessed with!
Thankfully D was out running errands and was able to swing by and stick this all in the trunk for me so I didn't have to wheel and drag it home.

I also went to an estate sale. In my car. No jogging involved.
Ball Mason Jars
Frame with some nice detail in the corners. To be painted.
Orange and olive green lotus bowls.
Yellow dish towel.
Bottle Brush Christmas Trees galore! So happy.
Block Ornaments
3 strands of Wood Bead Garland
And last but not least are a few items from 2 garage sales that Kristina and I stopped at after we had already been thrifting for an hour at a clothing swap called The 330 Swap & Shop. (Thanks for the invite, Laur!) It was a fun event -- separate post to come on that. 
Bocce Balls. Need to figure out something to do with these in C's vintage sports room. Any ideas?


Ice skates to use as decoration during the holidays. (Totally stealing this idea from my friend Gretchen.) I wish they were a little more vintage looking. Something like this. Maybe a little brown shoe polish will do the trick.
2 milk glass lamps. Love.
Heavy wood owl. This guy's got some spray paint coming his way.

    1. Thanks Sherry! I stopped over at your blog - love the new/old clock you made. Nothing's better than old, weathered wood planks :)

    1. Thanks "Lisa and Laura." Good seeing you on Sunday -- did all your clothes work out? I have yet to try stuff on but I'm praying that white lace dress isn't too tight/too short.

  8. I can't wait to see what you do with the 3-tiered table I have the same exact table in a blonde finish that I picked up at a garage sale a couple of years ago & haven't been motivated to do anything to it yet.

  10. SCORE!! The bar cart is my favorite too - painted or brass, either way it's fabulous!

    I used to eat pudding out of those lotus bowls as a kid - love them!

  11. There is an exact pair of milk glass lamps at the antique store near my home. I have walked past them so many times and debating whether to buy them or not. Can't wait to see what you do with them, might help in my decision making.

  12. for aging of your skates, try staining them with some brewed tea!
