Great New Finds

Come enter the Thirty-One Giveaway I have going on HERE!!!!!

It has been a VERY long time since I've posted about any new finds I've come across lately. It seems I post about them most often on Facebook and Instagram, but I've found some really great things recently that I wanted to share here as well!!

For instance, like these awesome metal prescription file boxes!!!

These might be my most favorite finds to date! 

A baby carriage wheel I plan to use in my son's industrial chic room

Large ironstone pitcher

A sweet Baby Ben

The start of a new collection it I need another one - mini dustpans 

They're just so cute I can't resist!

I love this green color!! 

My whisk brooms are accumulating rapidly. 
I found a place to display them that I'll share with you soon!

This rustic wood tool tote

Another lavender bottle - although it doesn't look so lavender in this picture. 

And a sock stretcher - I now have three!

So there you go! A few of my favorite recent finds. 

What's your favorite? And what kind of things do you collect?

  4. 'Ya got some good stuff. I'm eyeing up the wheel, waiting to see what you do with it for your son.

  5. Love those prescription file drawers. Fantastic find. I have been gathering vintage whisk brooms for several years, but they seem to disappear. Come to find out, my husband was putting them to use in his car! I have learned to either display them or hide them better.

  6. Wow.. you are one lucky lady.. I just love the wheel and the wood crate. Can't wait to see what you create with your new found treasures!

  15. A few of your recent finds??? This is a TREASURE TROVE!! I love the sock form! I would definitely make that into a Christmas greenery piece for the fireplace! These are awesome awesome finds, you have the farmer's eye!

  16. Great finds!

    I like the carriage wheel and the sock stretcher. I have a lot of different collections (china, art, boxes, birdhouses), but I also have a small collection of shoe models that shoe makers used as well as seashells collected over a period of years and others purchased more recently. I have two that we inherited, one from my husband's great grandparents and another from mine, and each shell sat on the hearth in their living rooms when they lived down the street from each other in the early 1900's!

    I'm joining Becky for the first time today because I actually have some white to share (shells), and I have been friends off the blogs with her for about two years. So I thought it was time I joined you all. I have been on an extended blogging break, but hopefully am back for the duration.

    Thanks again for sharing with us! I enjoyed visiting you!



  17. Wow you scored the sweetest things. Love the wood tote, lavender bottle and the ironstone pitcher. The wheel is going to look awesome in your son's industrial chic room! That was a great find. I am not a collector of anything. No wait I collect gardens or create them .;-) I am pretty out of control there and so busy this time of year. I love to see what other people collect though so it was fun to read your post. Have a great weekend! Blessings!

  18. can't wait to see what you do with them all!!

  19. I have never seen anything like those prescription file boxes before! LOVE them! Awesome find as well as the others! Thanks so much for linking up to Give Me The Goods Monday! We love having you party with us and can't wait to see what goods you bring next week! Jenna @ Rain on a Tin Roof
