More chairs and other finds.

What is it with me and chairs at the moment? Even though I  recently bought this chair, I couldn't help myself when I saw this one...

One armed (how it is designed), very funky hey! I think I will re-varnish the arm and legs. The fabric is in good condition but needs a clean, there are a couple of fluffy areas of fabric that I will have to do something with but overall it's great. If I can't find a spot for this chair, I may have to sell it (but that would be a shame). Oh yeah, I nearly forgot to say that it is REALLY comfy!

I also recently bought  two wooden folding chairs, not sure if I will keep them as is or paint them. $5 each! The old lady I got them from was holding up her garage sale shelving with them. I asked if they were for sale and she said if I came back Monday I could pick them up. When I got there Monday she couldn't remember me...hmm, not good but luckily her memory clicked back in and she said yes, she had put them aside for me. :)

I picked us these yellow and white folding chairs in hope that one day I will be able to get the old caravan out of Dads shed. I have some fond memories of that caravan from when I was a kid and would love to give it a new life and new memories. These chairs  would be cute with it I think! $3 each!

This dish below is from an op shop near my work. I sometimes go for a walk at lunch and as turns out I can walk to this oppie and back within half an hour. Nice!

I love Depression glass (not sure if this is Depression or not as I have not seen this pattern before- will have to do some Googling). I used pink glass for Little Miss' birthday party. I actually had some pieces that I forgot to bring out so maybe will have to do the same this year so they get some use. I love green Depression glass also but as it is so popular it is difficult to find (therefore my collection is mostly pink).

I got a kitchen magazine for $1 and also picked up this little cutie for the same amount. I am a sucker for mixing bowls.

Linking in with Flea Market Finds.

I had an idea that I would do a quick collage of my week, every week. I seem to only get to blog once a week at this stage so I though this might be a nice idea. So here is 'The week that was'...

Beach with Mr M and the pool with Nana and Auntie Gemmie. Fun! Poor Little Miss covered head to toe at the beach due to her fair skin! Mum 1, sun 0.

Enjoy the week ahead!

  4. Wow, I love that armchair and those wooden chairs. I have GOT to start going to garage sales... :)

  5. Nice chair finds! The one armed bandit is my fave.

  6. You have such good vintage chair luck! I wish I did! I heart the first one. I've got vague memories of a great-aunt who used to have one like that (not sure if it was one-armed or not though) in a lovely red. Wish I had it now! Goodness only knows where it is!

  7. I often have to pass on the chairs I see at op-shops for lack of space at home.
    Your finds are fantastic, love the wooden folding chairs. x

  8. Lots of chairs! At least some fold up so more space. I love the lil spotty bowl so sweet.

  9. Oooh I love chairs too - always happy to have them around so I can park my bum ;o) Your chair finds are wonderful :o) Scarlett x

  10. Hi Sherry ~ I love the chairs and the one with one arm looks very comfortable, I look forward to seeing what you do with it. Also the pink glass dish is rather gorgeous along with your adorable little peeps who look like they were having a fab time ~ hope you are well ~ Haizi xx

  11. Hi Sherry, love your most recent finds. The chair is a killer, and had to laugh at the old lady with the chairs. Too funny. I don't think I have seen any depression glass here for a long time, other than clear glass that is.

    Love your summer photos, although you wouldn't get me in the water down there, too many big sharks!

    Enjoy the rest of your summer days, Tam x

  12. That bowl is adorable! =)

  13. Cute beach babies!!! And I love the green dotty mixing bowl.


This is the best bit, would love you to leave me a Vintage Hello!
