White Wednesday

Somebody pinch me!  I just happened to take a quick look this afternoon on Craigslist and saw a 'primitive cupboard' for sale. 

I immediately sent an email with my number.  He called a few minutes later.  He said, "now you saw the picture right?......It's pretty rough and needs a little work".  I said "yea,  I'd like to come by and look at it".

"I'll probably just use it in my carport for garden junk", I said.

Be still my heart!!!

These things just don't happen to me!

But lately, I guess I've been in the right place at the right time.....

Found this neat old door at the thrift store.  "How much", I asked.  " about $7.45", he said.
"I guess I'll take it"!

Sorry, couldn't get a good pic for some reason.

The 'window' in the door unlatches at the top and folds down!  I've never seen a door like this before!

How cute is that?

Picked up this loot over the weekend!

Neat old crate, white chippy frame, white wire bicycle basket ($1.00), corbel, and an old white stoneware bowl ($2.00).  The awesome 'tackle box' was purchased on Etsy at  Finders 4 Keepers and had just arrived in the mail!

Also, check out this cute wrapping/craft paper from the Dollar Tree.  It's like brown craft paper with a washed white floral...... (I bought a bunch)
Oh, and faux moss rocks, cotton flour sack towels, little bird and some nice fragrance oils!

Well, that's all I got for now.  Feeling pretty happy tonight!  I'm linking up with Kathleen at Faded Charm for Wonderful White Wednesday!  Stop by now.....

  2. Girlie, you've definately been in the right place at the right time. Love that cubby!

  3. Hi Susie~ Yes, I'd just use that cabinet in my garage too....not!! I love it.:) Looks like you have had quite a week of thrifting and dollar scores. You must be walking on cloud 9.

  4. You have made some great finds. I love the cupboard. The dollar tree always has some great finds. You just need to go real often as the unusual things sell out fast. Thanks for sharing, Sherry

  5. Wow, you did great! It's really hard anymore to find great primitives like the one you purchased. Love all your other finds too!

  6. So many great goodies Suzie! Good for you. I bet you're dreaming of all you can do with them right now.

    Be blessed. Hugs...Tracy :)

  7. The cupboard is wonderful!! Lucky you!

  8. I never find anything on Craig's List...must be holding my mouth all wrong. That cupboard is 2die4 wonderful and that door...oh mylanta. I've never seen one with a little window like that.
    I love the Dollar Tree. I buy the kitchen towels for napkins.

  9. Wow! You have been at the right place at the right time, your finds are amazing! Over the past couple of weeks you have found so many great pieces! Are you still having to move?
