Found Treasures

I heart a good bargain!
Whether I stumble across it at Goodwill or a yardsale,
there's a certain thrill I get when I find a treasure.
You know what I'm talking about, dontcha?

I've been on the look-out for a stool in the kitchen so I snatched up this little wooden one when I saw it at a yard sale! Turns out, it's perfect for Hadassah to push around the kitchen. Since she loves washing dishes so much, she stands on it beside me at the sink. She was even hoping I would let her spray it with cleaner today! :) I've tossed around the idea of painting it, but I rather like it unfinished at this point. What do you think?

I scored the antique mirror at a thrift store not so long ago with the intent to put it in Hadassah's big-girl room, but realized it completed my mantle even better! Some day, I shall buy me a starburst mirror - or something equally dramatic - but this is fine for now. I thought about painting it but decided I really like the finish.

I have a minor obsession with antique bottles and I couldn't resist picking up these two when I found them at a yard sale this weekend! I love the tomato design on the side of the bottle on the right. They're hanging out in my kitchen and make me happy!

I'm anxious to show you some of the items I've been collecting for Hadassah's big-girl room! This project is probably my favorite to date :) 

What treasures have you been finding?
