Weekend Finds | 2nd Edition

This weekend was a bit lackluster mostly because I skipped garage sales on Saturday and only hit up two thrift shops on Sunday. Still, I scored some fun pieces of junk that I cannot wait to get creative with! 

This pretty wicker basket in French blue reminded me of something that would be used to hold collected lavender bunches. It just needs a good cleaning and a tiny bit of repair on the lid. I will be adding it to my shoppe in the near future.

I can NEVER resist a good set of canisters. I feel they are something everyone uses in their home. Sometimes they are proudly displayed on the kitchen counter. Other times, they are neatly tucked in a pantry or under a counter. Either way, canisters are a must. I was excited to find this set of four cobalt pottery canisters. I added a fun dry erase label to each and stuck them in my shoppe right away.

It has French typography on it? Check! I didn't have to think long about this one. The frame is an unpretty wood, but I plan to give it a mini facelift with some milkpaint. 

 Isn't this mini urn just the cutest?? I have a special project in mind for it. I need to find just the right item to go with it and then I will be happy to share on the blog!

I fell in love with these little pinecone taper holders. These cuties will definitely receive a fun update this week. I hope to share the completed project with you soon! 

I actually found this pitcher at a big box craft store on clearance. Although it's new, it has a rustic quality to it. I will be using it for a fall floral arrangement. I love the pansies and the wreaths on this lovely trivet. I am trying to decide if I should paint the wood a pretty white. What do you think?

This stack of votive holders are going to paired up with the pinecone tapers. I am sure you can figure out what's going to be happening there! Can't wait to share the finished project with you.

Finally, I picked up a couple of trays. The pretty French blue tray is a light craft wood. I am going to leave it as is because this color seems to be extremely popular these days. The second tray is simple wicker tray. I imagine it could hold bread at family dinner or an assortment of kid friendly books on the coffee table. Both are perfect as is and will remain as I found them.

So, did you have any luck this weekend? I'd love to see what you found on my facebook page!
