Well what a great weekend for collecting cast offs.
I scoured a few roadside chuckouts and scored a few freebies.
These frames are amazing ... not fond of the fruit but the pictures will go
and the frames will be fabulous when I have finished with them ....
I just love this bok choy vintage plate .....
It astounds me what people consider as junk.
Not a crack or a chip. Perfect little piece.
... and it was Free !!
My Bargain of the Weekend .....
I discovered this item at our local Sunday Markets & only just by the skin of my teeth because I had just paid all of $ 4 for this beauty and another lady almost ripped it out of my hand ... You gotta be quick at the markets !!
I have the perfect place for this in my room and I have seen the perfect oil painting to go on it .... just hope the oil is still at the shop where I saw it. It was only after buying this easel that I am now convinced to buy the oil painting to go on it .... so stay tuned and fingers crossed .
My Next Project
I cant wait to restore these little cute pieces.
The table was $ 1 & the chair ( labelled Ikea ) was $ 2 at the local flea market.
The chair doesnt need much work just a good clean with some sugar soap.
My intention for the table will be as a little side coffee table.
I'm undecided as to whether to give it a white wash & let a little green shine through subtly or maybe do a decoupage top with some sheet music and a vanish ......
any other suggestions ???

Welcome to my corner of the World. A little place where I can keep my Invaluable Valuables or my Valuable Invaluables, which ever the case may be.
Some things in my life are priceless such as my two handsome boys, some things have a price & some things are here just for my pleasure.
A few have been hard to come by. Many are finds others have castaway on the roadside, but if they are here, it means they are valuable to V... & thats me.
