Fun Finds

Good Morning!

It's time for Friday's Fun Finds and boy do I have some great stuff to share with you toady.

First off is this vintage garden chair.

Now technically I didn't find it this week, more like months ago while we were digging ourselves out of yet another snowfall but this week I finally had time to clean it up and drag it to the porch which is why I'm sharing it today.

Don't you just love it!

The color on it is amazing.
Eventually I'll give the cushions a makeover but I'm keeping the pretty original paint as long as possible.

Also found this rug for the porch . . . ok maybe it's not really a rug, more like blanket but it seems rug like to me and the colors are perfect for the space so that's what I'm using it for.

For the kitchen I stumbled on this cool vintage rolling pin and thought it would be a fun thing to add to my shelf.

I love it's shape and the fact that it has a few cracks (which you can't see very well in the photo)

And last but not least, I found these two metal boxes.

For some reason I'm loving all sized and styles of boxes lately, I have growing collection of wood ones but these two are my first metal ones.

 So pretty isn't it.  
Normally I stay away from gold but this muted, worn finish was interesting me.
The so did the stripes and flower design.

The second box is this silver number.  I fell for the unique shape and crest on the top.

The inside of this one is lined in red velvet that is in really good shape still and doesn't have the weird smell.

I'm sure to find a great spot for both of these boxes.

How about you.

Find the perfect spot for a new treasure of your own?
