Estate Sale Finds Arranged



The little metal flower arrangement I bought at the estate sale, noted in the previous post, was placed on the round coffee table just for giggles.


I like it there.
I paid .33 cents for the little flowers.

These photos were not planned and you will see why. Newspaper hanging out and a....


cat {Clovis} there on the left soaking up a sun beam. I had to move fast but quietly to not alarm him.


The wire basket behind him is vintage and a recent purchase from an estate sale also.


I bought two of these large green wire baskets.
  Clovis is squinting...bless him.

Now I am off to place many other items on consignment. Yes, I have crossed the line and I sell my junk finds now. It was bound to happen. I cannot keep all these things I find.

I am linking with Blue Creek Home for Treasure Hunt Thursday for her first party!

  3. Clovis looks as if he's really enjoying it in that warm sunshine. Those little metal flowers look really good on the coffee table. Your room looks to have some gorgeous things in it.

  8. Clovis looks so warm there. I'm surprised he hasn't claimed the basket yet. You know, you can only buy stuff for so long before you are labeled a hoarder. And then you have to find new homes for your stuff. I've been thinking of doing the same thing with my stash!

  13. Picket-yes that is a Lady banks rose on an old building attached to our old house. Those roses grow like crazy and I forgot to prune it.

  15. Oh you are brave! I have thought of selling my over-stock of stuff, but don't have the nerve. I feel like a potential hooker who is afraid she'd go on the streets.... and starve to death.

    Those are old egg baskets you have! I have one that belonged to my mom from when she had a small chicken farm in the late 30s. And I love the tin flowers; how adorable.

    Your "as is" table looks mighty good to me. Mine has this morning's coffee mug still on it!

    Hiring painters is weird, but there's no way we can do it ourselves; the house is 130 miles away, big, with two story walls upstairs. No time, and certainly not enough energy!

    And we're dividing the expenses 4 ways, among the siblings, so not as painful as it might otherwise be!
    Happy April ... Cass

  16. No you didn't! 33¢??!! What a great deal! I love the flowers! Your kitty looks so much like our beloved Buster who passed away two years ago. Those yellow tabbies are such good cats. Thanks for stopping by the blog! I'm off to visit more on yours.

  17. I love your little metal flowers and "squinting Clovis"! It must be hard to part with your treasures at times, but you are doing exactly what a good friend of mine is doing, selling her junking finds because for her it's more about the fun of the hunt! Ann

  18. I have a little bitty metal flower bouquet similar to yours. Aren't they the cutest things?
    Thanks for coming to my first party. I would love to have you join in every week to show us your treasures...before you sell them!

  29. Great pictures Olive! Love the light.
    Clovis looks terrific. I see he has a "target" on his side. That makes him not only Clovis, but a Classic. Red. Tabby. They are very important, doncha know?
