My health hasn't been great of late, I have Lupus and Fibro, so haven't been able to tackle my Bedroom of Roses makeover. Presently, I'm sleeping on a double air mattress in my livingroom. But I am still gathering and collecting pieces to help put it all together when the time comes. So, since this past Friday I had to go for a doctor appt, I decided to check out the local thrift stores and see what I can find. At the top of my list was more vintage china with roses, interesting lamps to makeover, and possibly a smaller chair! Well, . . . I soooo really scored! I was just giddy when I found these
This set was $3.50 at half off! It is Delmar Rose - Iva-lure by Crooksville. There's 3 plates, 2 saucers, and a bowl.
This next set is more floral but still roses. I like the lacy-like work in between and the roses are such small
delicate clusters. This is a Knowles set and cost $4.00. There's 5 plates, a vegetable bowl, 2 bowls, and dessert plate.
I also found two lovely lamps which I'm thinking of painting an off white and distressing. What do you think, yes or no?
I love the details and as you can see the price wasn't bad either; $5.99!
I'm not crazy about the socket; I'd have to use the type of lampshade that snaps on with these. But I've rewired many lams before and it's simple enough.
I found this rooster plaque for $1.29 and it will go beautifully with the others in my kitchen!
I also found these great patterns for my granddaughters and to make some aprons.
|These patterns I bought to use in creating unique aprons to sell at the college weekend flea mart and craft fair.|
|Aren't these adorable? And they have all the parts, too!|
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!

Thanks Anne, I'm feeling a bit better. Thanks so much for stopping by. I think the plates will look lovely in my finished bedroom; whenever I get finished painting. I need to get out and buy more paint as the one I started with didn't work.ReplyDelete
Great finds, Barbe. I like the idea of distressing the lamp bases. I also love the new banner and background on your blog. Nicely done! :)ReplyDelete
Hiya Fern, I knew great minds would think alike! -_^ hahahaDelete
Thanks I'm working on the banner still, not quite happy with it yet. Hope you're still enjoying your trip.
I was so excited when I saw the Delmar Rose pattern; I've always loved it. And the price was right up my alley. Thanks, the blog look is definitely a work in progress . . .ReplyDelete
So how is your veggie baby hats coming along? Those last ones were amazing. And how about the greeting card business, any new designs? Thanks for stopping by.
