hunting for treasures

Had some special time today with my dear friend Kate. 
We hit one of our fav places....
Some might say "why on earth?" 
but we know you have to look past the mess in search for a treasure.
It's there...so many treasures there and new ones in each week.
Enjoy a few of our peeks....



loved this washed blue door...could be a neat headboard for boy's bed...

 oh how I love chippy white paint...




 



 we loved these words painted on slate roof shingles...

we laughed through the isles of the vintage/retro clothes...
kinda looked like a vintage Lilly

super heavy quilted skirts...would cut them up and make pillows or clutches I think.
great pattern...


and the best for last... scored this amazing stainless steel island with drawer and pot rack and will be using this in the renovated studio. 
Incredible price and they are holding it until we move back in...yippee!
Another artist sent me a message on facebook today saying she got the same thing from a restaurant supply company and she uses this in her studio and absolutely loves it. 
Super excited about this and plan to hang baskets with embellishments 
for my mixed media pieces up above. Other ideas?
 and have been looking for some mid century modern chairs for a while...
found this fabulous pair of LUCITE AND CHROME chairs...
yep, shiny yellow vinyl seats ...
they are comfy and cool. 
L O V E   'E M
 and got this for my 11 year old who loves to hunt...
for his hand towel in his new bathroom. 
oh and snagged this old, giant paint brush...
very heavy and neat detail.
May frame it in the studio...not sure yet.
Super fun day with sweet Kate!
We laughed and laughed our way through the retro/vintage section.
We hope you enjoyed the antique mall tour.
Blessings,
Caroline
