Estate Sale Treasures

I had given you a sneak peak of the things I found at the estate sale. So, I thought I'd better hurry and get at least some of them up for you to see. Here are the 3 creamers. Two are silver plate. One of them looks like a little tea pot with the lid and spout.  The other one is ironstone. Something about the pattern just said pick me up! And for .50 I obliged.


The box I loved. It's warmth of the wood and the dovetailing are terrific. Plus, it held all my little creamers while I browsed. The two jars were bought at different sales but I didn't have any of that size so they were both great additions to my larger ones.



Two old bottles. The dark blue one was just like that. Like someone had just dug it up. It was just old newspaper that was crumbling off but it had an H on it. My last initial. And the other had it's cork with writing on it. I have weird criteria when I decide on what to bring home. But it makes sense to me.


Here they are all washed up. I haven't cleaned the inside of the light one. I need to figure out how to get in there and clean the neck.



These two corbels came from the estate sale at the old run down house we stopped at on Saturday. For $3 I got these, the blue jar with the zinc lid and 3 white bowls which I don't have a picture of.  I'm a cheap date.


I'm thinking they are some sort of a mold to make plaster corbels. They are not wood. They have a number engraved on the end along with the one written on it. If anyone has an idea please let me know.I think they're pretty neat.


I have the window frame and my coop to show you next. I would like to get the frame hung up before I do. I'm going to give it a waxing. The coop still needs a cleaning and maybe some wax too. I may want some ideas from you all on that one. 

Side note: I know a lot of my pictures are taken on my hearth but I do not keep them all there. I swear. Just better lighting in that spot.

Have a great day and stay out of the heat. It's going to be another scorcher!

  8. Everything you found was a fun find, in my opinion. Love the blue bottles and the silver plate creamers. Do you have a couple of different sizes of bottle brushes so you can clean the bottles? Sometimes, if a brush is too large for the opening, I'll fill the piece with rice and hot water, then shake shake shake. Sometimes, a little lime-away/water soak is called for. Good luck with the cleaning process.

  11. Great stuff! The corbels would make good bookends, if they're heavy enough and you are so inclined.

  14. ooh, I really like those corbels! They would make a terrific shabby shelf!

  15. Hi Anita! Well, the table actually looked pretty good but was missing all of the leaves. I plan on sanding down the top and refinishing it because it had some pretty bad scratches. It would be great with 6 chairs, but probably not large enough for 8. Wish they could have found the leaves, because I bet it had three and would have been huge.
