Saturday Scores

Just a quick post on treasure hunting over the weekend. I scouted a sale on Thursday and then went back for half-price Saturday. Here’s what I found:

The square taupe table cloth was NIB and is Irish linen. It came with four napkins, for a whopping $2.50. It’s beautiful, but it smells of old house, so it will get a good washing. Guess I need to google how to wash linen…

The green teapot (little, short, stout…) and doilies were $2 and $1.50 respectfully.

The flirty red apron is adorable and cost $2 at the semi-annual church sale where we also purchased Liam’s dresser 1.5 years ago. I also bought the checkered curtains at this sale ($2). I hung two in my kitchen and have two left over.

I found some owl paraphernalia in the form of a cast iron wall hook sort of thing ($2.50), and a green and teal pot rest ($2.50).

And finally a 1959 wall calendar with an adorable saying and perfect colors. ($.25)

All in all it was a great weekend. We went to the annual Overland Park Fall Festival and got to watch old Jayhawks play basketball. We even managed to sit down long enough to watch a movie…or two. AND I found time to work on a project that I plan on selling. The office project is on hold until I convince my mom to pack table legs from IKEA in her bag for her flight here next month. It might be working…

Happy hunting! As always, check my Etsy shop for these and other treasures.

  1. Love the Irish linen table cloth! Is it embroidered?

  2. You’ve got the coolest sense of style, and a great eye!
