Fun Finds

Good Morning!

I have a couple Fun Finds to share with you this fine Friday morning.

The first of which you may remember seeing in a previous post about my kitchen,  this cheerful red and white table runner was a big score for me. 

 I loved the stripes and bright red fruit as soon as I saw it.  It reminded me right away of a vintage tablecloth by the cheerful colors and the feel of the fabric.  Plus it fits my kitchen table perfectly and adds a nice pop of red.

My second item to share today is this metal crate, once again from the Thrift Store.  It's a newer version since it has a plastic bottom . . . 

Yet it's old enough to have perfectly chippy red paint on all four corners.
I've placed it under a small table at the top of our steps and have filled it will naughty shoes that come upstairs much to my aggravation.  It works perfectly.

How about you,

Any fun finds lately?



  1. Love both esp. the runner Robin! I have a few finds to share next week - an umbrella stand, bookends and a bargain duvet cover!

  2. Eeeh, I'm excited for you! Both finds are awesome and so Robin!

  3. Wonderful finds, Robin. I especially like the linens -- so fun and cheerful!

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my craft room!

    Hi Robin! So happy you came by and left a comment . . . because it brought me back to you :0)
    Your blog is my new fun find!
    I have a crate just like yours! It's in my son's room and holds all his books. Love its vintage look.
    Thanks so much for sharing.
    Have a great weekend and a Happy, Happy Easter,

  5. Good Easter Saturday Morn, to you! My finds this week weren't d├ęcor related, they were vintage toys from my childhood...A Fisher Price Little People Mini Bus (where the people go up and down as it rolls along, a FP mini mail truck (my husband is a mail man!!) and a FP Roly Poly Chime ball that sounds like a beautiful wind chime blowing in the breeze when it rocks!! LOVE your finds, by the way! Just beautiful! ~ Donna E. at My Wells Of Fancy

  6. Those are my kind of finds! It will be great when the yard sales start up again around here. Love the red and white!

  7. That crate is too fun...I can imagine you getting lots of use from it!


I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
