If you have been following my blog since last month, you will remember all of my refurbished items that were used in the lake house remodel! The lamp below was my very favorite piece, from the Goodwill. It is so heavy and has initials on the switch, which as I interpret, ...cost someone lots of money when purchased new!
The brass sconces were found at a thrift store, $5.00 for the pair. An antique store one block down, had identical ones for over $75.00.
The goldish~color urn came from an upscale consignment store, and was the basis for the colors of the dining room. (The wall color is a light taupe, not white, as it appears in the pics.)
The lamps were purchased off of Ebay.
The plates, glass ruby ball, and brass snuffer were all from yard sales and thrift stores.
On to the kitchen...
The cabinet below is one of my favorite "furniture with a history" pieces. It was purchased at an auction, brought over from England.
And on to the guest full~bath. These prints were purchased at an auction, (two more on the opposite wall), and are of steam boats that traveled our local river. The pitcher and amber glass "soap" dish are also yard sale and consignment store finds.
In the Living Room, I have a tea cart my dad found at an auction and replaced the glass top.
Guest Bedroom....The hat box, on the TV armoire below, was a gift from my dad, from an auction.
The architectural piece was salvage found in a curbside trash pile by a friend.
The college I graduated from was renovating an old mansion downtown, and this was a piece of the salvage. This month, the college magazine did an article on the renovated house, featuring a picture of the columns this piece originated from....
The chair, (that still needs to be finished), came from a church rummage sale.
Hope you enjoyed the mini~tour of my favorite finds! I'll be around to check out everyone contributions! Thanks to Rhoda, hosting this great event!
And now for one more very important matter of business...
I'm a winner!!!
I was so very excited to find out last week, that I won the "July Birthday Give~Away" by Jan, at Jan and Toms Place! I never win anything, so I was overjoyed! Tuesday I received my package that permeated a heavenly scent before I even opened it! Inside was a beautiful tea cup and saucer with yellow roses complete with tea, a strawberry candle, a beautiful tag and angel, and delicious cinnamon cookies. I know the cookies WERE good, because I have almost finished the box! :)
Thank you so much Jan! You are a beacon of light and one sweet soul!
