This Is Going to be FUN FUN FUN! Hannah's Thrifty Finds for Her New House...


My daughter is moving into her first house after college graduation last May! (She's been living with family in Houston, and is making a move to another state for a great job.)

Today, she sent i-phone photos of cool things she was finding for her new home (in the works.)

Isn't that metal trunk wonderful? It is on rollers.


I love the pretty patina on these candlesticks, too!



That is a pretty mother of pearl inlaid brass box...


I told her I once had a set of these silver plate coasters, too. 
Wonder what ever happened to them?


EVERY first home needs a copper piggy bank, don't you think?


Last but not least - this little table was $12. She asked if I thought she should get it, and what is the hole for?

I assured her it was a good buy at $12, and thought she might give it a coat of walnut stain and have a marble top cut for it, but I don't have a clue why the hole is there...do you?

Cute little tables with nice lines can be used so many places!

I'm so proud of my sweet girl, and so happy for her! (She said she liked being a grown-up!) 

I think it is very convenient that we have very similar style and taste...:)

I'm looking forward to shopping together in person, and going to the places where she found these things (and more) today!

Word for the Day:

May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace;

The table with the hole used to have an ashtray in it. I saw one recently at a flea market in FL. With a slab of marble or even a painted board and you'd never know there was a hole there. Or she could find a small bowl that would fit and place a small plant in it. Or a candy dish...oh I could go on and on...

Hi Revi ... looks like Hannah is off to a good start and a smart shopper to furnish her house with Thrift buys. I love the little table and believe it is a washstand and the hole would have been where the pitcher/bowl would have set. If she does not want to add the pitcher/bowl, she could sit a tray on top and use it for an end table or night stand. Very nice piece for $12.00.
