Sweet Finds

I just made a short trip to my fave consignment shop, and of course bought some pretty items.  I spent around $20.00, and thought that was a good price for the three items.

$4.99 for this sweet handmade table square made in the 1950's.  It's not perfect, but I loved the strawberries.  The yellow trim has come loose in one place, but I will repair that.
I have it in the sunroom on my vintage oval shaped table.

I think it would probably look better turned on the diagonal, so I will do that.

Sweet green frame for $5.99, which was a steal.  It is distressed.  The picture is my own work.  I added the barn, tire swing, walkway to barn, a couple trees, and benches in the front yard to the painting today.  The frame is a perfect fit!!

This colorful cushion was $7.99, which is also a great price.  I love the spring look of the daffodils.  All three pieces found today came to rest in the sun room.  I knew the cloth and cushion would go there, but wasn't sure about the frame.  The art can be removed easily for replacement, or using the frame empty.

I was very happy with my finds.  Are you a consignment shopper?  We have some really nice shops in our area, but this is my favorite.  There is a really large one about 50 miles away, and I like to get an early start if I'm going there.  This one is about 20 miles from me, so I went today after cleaning the whole house!!

I'll be sharing these finds here:
