New Treasures~

Visited the flea market on a misty rainy Sunday morning with my son Chris. I was surprised that people were there. Good thing we stopped, and took a chance. Found a few new treasures~

I've decided to start a new collection (not that I needed another one) red and white china. I've been coming to the flea market for the last few weeks and this time was the first time I came across someone selling an assortment of dishes. I picked out three pretty ones of different styles to start my collection. I've been wanting a red willow piece =) Red is my favorite color! They will look pretty hanging in my dinning room.

Another person was selling a variety of old and vintage furniture. I saw this oak Victorian piece and new it was what I was looking for. The finish is worn but I just loved the style with its hand turned legs. I put it in my room until I decide if I want to refinish it or paint it.. What would you do with it?


  1. I adore red and white dishes! I particularly love red transferware! Love the table! Right now, I'm into painting furniture white. :)

  2. I love the vintage table...would look nice a soft white,sanded on the edges..then a light pastel dry brush..maybe you could paint roses on the top..the dishes are pretty, my daughter Ben collects blue willow..I found a pretty set in a green,at a resale shoppe.I lucked up on getting the sugar and craemer..I will post a photo..1st. time I have seen a red and green.
    cost was 50 cents each.. we have a "Great" resale shoppe in Ooltewah,about 4 miles from You know I am going to be there every time I go into

  3. Love the red and white dishes. The table? What would I do with it? I think I'd paint it light turquoise and use it on my side porch.

    I'm thinking white maybe pretty, but I also love a light spring green. Now torquise, would be beautiful wouldn't it? hmmmmm
