Found Treasures

Here are a few treasures I picked up at the Ruffles and Rust spring show.
The show was fabulous with lots of cool "junk" to be found!
Don't cha love my new 7-up vase?
I think it's the coolest - repurposing at its best!

Whenever I spot a bucket of buttons. I dig.
I found some beauties for a grand total of $2.

Couldn't pass up the vintage sequin purse.
A perfect addition to my vintage little purse collection.

This little wooden cheese box makes a fun display piece.

I'm always on the lookout for old children's tin watering cans and sand buckets.
I don't have a collection yet (this is only my 2nd piece) but I'm trying - ha!

My most favorite find of the day was an old wicker vase with barbola roses.
Love, love, love.
It was actually gold, and since I'm not a big fan of gold, I fixed that by painting it white. I'm pretty sure it had been white once before since that's what was showing beneath some of the chippy gold.

If you weren't able to make it to the show, you now have a chance to experience a little Ruffles and Rust yourself. Timi, the shows creator, has teamed up with Annie (Annie's on First) fame, and opened Ruffles and Rust Square in Snohomish.
I can't wait to check it out!

This was such a great show, loved it. And I got to visit Ruffles and Rust Square a couple days ago and bring home a couple treasures. I love the colors of your room in the post below, the pink and red together, so cute!
