Leo and I love to attend an auction that is held each Monday, so I thought I would show you some recent finds. A few weeks ago, we scored this old milk can. I had been looking for one for a while to go on our front porch.
It’s a Borden’s milk can, and lucky for me, it was already painted red. It will make a great plant stand. You are probably wondering how much I paid for it. Well, let’s just say that if I put it up on Ebay, I could probably quadruple my investment. But, it’s staying right here.
I like all the colors on the lamp, and the more I look at it, I’m thinking that it needs to go in the guest bedroom. Don’t you think a linen drum shade would look fabulous on it? Let’s just say that I will pay much, much more for a shade than I did for the lamp.
Well, that day at the auction was my lucky day. I saw a box of dishes on the ground.
I didn’t need to read this label to know about these dishes! I had already bought a box of this china at the auction this past summer. I did a tablescape with these dishes. Click here if you’d like to read that post.
The funny thing is that in the first set of these dishes, there was a creamer. And in this box was the sugar dish. You know that this box had to come home with me. And I paid even less for this box than I did the previous one!
So yesterday I bought a new gold tablecloth, some brown napkins, and some chargers that I’m going to spray paint that marvelous eggplant color that’s in the dishes. My Thanksgiving table is all planned!
