Vintage Scores Galore!!

Oh my gosh!! I have been away from blogging for toooooo long! I have missed all of you! I have so many things to share with all of you. . . .but first I want to participate in Rhoda's Today's Thrifty Treasures!!

And boy do I have some THRIFTY TREASURES to share with you all :)

I went to a few yard sales this weekend that were all a bust! Not one tiny little treasure was to be found! I was so disappointed. Then my sweet friend introduced me to a couple of people that have mountains of treasures!! I was in heaven!! Or what I hope heaven to look like for a treasure hunter like myself :)

The first piece is one that I have been lusting for since I first had a glimpse of one in a magazine. I know I still have the torn out page around here somewhere. Then I was over visiting at Lulu's and she had just bought one and she said hers had her dancing!!! I wanted one too!!! So I was on a hunt, I was determined!! I was going to find one and at a great price!!!

Just look at this sweet little beauty!!

Isn't she the sweetest you have ever seen!!!! And what a deal I got on her! WOO HOO!!

Next is a little lady who made my heart go pitter patter!!! She is completely adjustable all the way around, even her skirt!!! And the price was fantastic!! How could I say no?!?! She had to come home with me.

A close up. Wouldn't you just love to have a tiny waist like that! And, she is in great shape for her age!!!

I have been looking for a table and chairs for my backyard patio. I haven't found the table yet but I did get four of these chairs. I will be making new seats for all of them.

Here is a footboard, that was free, I will be making into a cottage sign for my house. The headboard is being made into a sweet little bench. (I'll have pictures of that in a later post).

I am so excited about the sweet treasures I found this week!! I'm doing the Happy Dance!
Until Later,


  1. I am in love with your dress form!!! I want one so bad!! You got some really awesome things!!

  2. Oh my gosh, I am green with envy! You did get some great stuff ... that headboard is a great project piece! Way to go!

  3. WHOA!! You did real good, ladybug. I am really curious to see that headboard when you are done.
    Glad you are back.

  4. What great finds, Toni! Love the shape of the headboard, can't wait to see what you do with it!

    Welcome back!


  5. You did get some great things. Sure like the dress form. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your finds.

  6. I have never seen a baby bathtub like that. I LOVE it! Goodness, wish it was me!

  7. Love that bathtub! I seen one of those on another blog with geraniums planted in it but I can't remember which one! Years ago my next door neighbor got rid of 4 of those white garden chairs and for years I had one of them in my garden with flowers on the seat but when I moved I gave it to another neighbor. I want to see what you do with that headboard! That is going to look fantastic!

  8. Hello fellow treasure hunter!!!
    I see you DID find some great treasures!!! How wonderful!! Looking forward to seeing the headboard turn into a bench...and what are you doing to do with the dress form? Sweet little baby bath.
    Deb :)

  9. Toni, You found some great treasures, too! So what are you gonna do with the bathtub? I would love to find some sort of dress form, but they are all so overpriced when I do see one. Post your sign when you finish!

  10. Oh me oh my.... I love it all and that manequin is simply D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S!!! a must have with that cage my heart is pitter pattering!


  11. OMG..I love everything! I was looking for a clawfoot tub to put in the garden to wash the dog in...that little tub would be so awesome...I've never seen one like it!
    LOVE the dress form!..the chairs and the bedboard are awesome...please share the finished items! :-)

  12. All of your finds took my breathe.

    Sorry-I've been out of commission -- terribly sick for over a week-- but do you want to know how I cut my grocery bill in half? go to Cut your grocery bills now plus I have a give a way and a new MckLinky party starting Monday

  13. You got the best haul of the day, for sure! Can't wait to see what you do with the bathtub and the headboard - free??!! Lucky you! Linda

  14. Good morning Toni! What great finds - the heck with yard sales - I can't wait to see what you do with all your great deals!

  15. Steals and deals - don't you love them???? Looking forward to seeing where you put the tub and the headboard transformation. Thanks for stopping by The Devine Home! Come see my kitchen transformation pics coming soon. ;o)

  16. I am a very dark shade of green with envy right now, as I'm sure alot of other gals are!! I absolutely love that little tub, and I can just see all kinds of flowers tumbling out of it, and I've been looking for a footboard to make a sign for my garden! Those chairs are so sweet too, and I know there's alot of ladies who would love to have that dressform. Have you named her yet?!

  17. I am giggiling with excitement for you! The tub has a certain affect that gets you into a giddy must have mood! I am thrilled you found one! yippy!!! and now I am lusting after your headboard! I need one for a sign as well!! thanks for giving me something to look for!
    have a wonderful day and thrilled for your successful shopping outing,

  18. Wow did you score. I would have bought everything you got. I am one envious gal. Way to go. Have a great day.

  19. I can't wait to see your footboard sign! Please post pics when you're finished with all your little (and big) projects!

  20. Hi Toni,

    I love all the treasures you got. How lucky.
    The mannequin is lovely and yes, wouldn't it be great to have a waist size like hers.

    enjoy your week

  21. Hi Toni,

    You hit the jackpot! I would love to find a tub like that.


  22. TONI
    You did SCORE BIG !!!!!!!!

  23. Thanks for letting me know I am not the only one. Sue said I could transfer them from Reader and while I was trying to figure out how, they disappeared on Reader also !?!?!? I sure hope they can recover my lists.


My door is always open & I hope you will come by often to visit, maybe have a cup of coffee or tea with me. ~Hugs, Toni~
