Found Treasures from the Abyss and Elsewhere

I found some pretty cool stuff I had completely forgotten in my recent garage-cleaning adventure. I have a pretty good memory most of the time, but I honestly can't remember some of the junk I had stuck out there. I must have liked it, and I still do, which is great!

The piece above is not from MY garage, but Julie's garage sale a while back. It looked like this:

It was destined to get a coat of white faux chalk paint. 

It's solid wood and has great details...I don't have a clue where it will end up yet! For the time being, it's on the table in the front window.

From MY garage, I was excited to find more game pieces to go with my others. In addition to more scrabble tiles, I found the cutest little ivory dominoes! See them next to the tiny bone dice? I love them. 

Then there was this cute little Niloak pitcher - it's about the size of a coffee cup. 

It's probably going to Etsy...

There is another little white pitcher that will probably be listed as well. I found lots of Etsy-bound stuff out there!

I can't wait to get my art room functional, so I can begin to list some of it! I plan to have an Etsy station in there - as well as a photo area. I'll show you when it's a bit more presentable. It's the BIGGEST mess right at this moment.

Word for the Day:
Matthew 13:44-46

44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.

45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it.

I like the "Etsy Station" idea. I am currently cleaning out our shed to get out for our garage sale :)

You and I are on different planes of existence!
You are getting your house in order and getting your etsy shop/office shaped up...after your son and dog moved out.
Me? My oldest just moved back in...long story, and all of my stuff is piled on top of itself...in one big mess!
Love both the little pitchers...have fun with your stuff!

You really do have some neat treasures. The pitchers are such lovely shapes and patterns and the wood piece is stunning painted white. I love architectural type pieces. Thanks tons for joining Inspire Me. Hugs, Marty

Nice! We affectionately call that space between the cushions of the couch (and underneath) the abyss! No telling what you will find there - but I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be treasures like yours! Love those tiny dice!

Anne said...

Love that first piece much prettier painted too! Oh those ivory domino's wow what a find!

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Love the architectural piece painted white! I just set up an etsy shipping cabinet around the corner from my craft room. It's so nice to have it all organized. Thank you for sharing it at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great week!
