What I've been up to....

Yesterday I had the privilege to go through an old house and here is some of what I found:

We strung up a clothes line to dry the handkerchiefs and linens we found.

The red coat reminds me of Peter Rabbit's little blue coat.

An old apron.

More linens.

Stack of children's books.

Two sets of vintage goblets.

Some fun old lamps, these need shades and cords, another project.

And my favorite find, old, gilded frames.

I have yet to go through these stacks of books, they're still in the back of the van.

So, yes I've been having fun lately!!


  1. Wow! I bet you felt like a kid in a candy store!
    Have fun fixing and arranging everything.

  2. You have lived out my dream...jealous, I am ;)

  3. Haha, I was going to say the same thing as High Street cottage! I always dream about going through and old house and finding awesome goodies! Lucky you, I know you had a blast!!

  4. That sounds right up my ally! We have been doing the same thing lately! I keep telling myself I can't bring anything else home but I alwys find more!!! How fun!

  5. check that metal lamp base on the right. If you turn it upside down and it has numbers and/or Tiffany if could be a tiffany lamp base. They sell for a lot of money. It's probably not one but you never know!
