Trip Treasures

My Man took me to the North Georgia mountains this past weekend. We celebrated our 27th wedding anniversary. My how time has flown! 

I’m going to share about the trip in a few days, but for today, I want to share with you some of the treasures we found. 

IMG_1017This was the first treasure I found. I have been wanting some more of these for my bedroom. 

IMG_1019It came complete with the hanger! I was trilled about that. Doesn’t take much to get me excited! 

There is a little Flea Market in between Mountain City and Dillard that I love to go to whenever we are up there. You just never know what you will find. I found most of this trip’s treasures there.

IMG_1016The vendor that sold me this was very nice. We talked for a few minutes about where she finds her things, where we are from, chit-chat. I have a couple of red and white porcelain pieces that I wanted to add to. She had several pieces to choose from, so I decided to get a piece that I had never seen before. It looks like a bread pan, but is much bigger. 

IMG_1015Maybe next time I can find a big, round pan. Probably not, since I will be looking for it. haha

IMG_1021Another vendor had these little painted trays. I got them to go around the bigger try. I paid $6 dollars for all four. Look at the original price still stamped on the back.

IMG_1022Wish I could have gotten them for that price!

IMG_1023MM got this for me. I usually get the cheap, plastic ones. I have a hard time keeping a watering can. I’ll forget and leave it in the yard and the next thing I know, the dog has it, flinging it up in the air, biting on it and putting holes in it where it doesn’t need holes.

I’d like to see MoJo fling this one and bite it and put holes in it that don’t belong. 

IMG_1020MM got this for himself. It’s the only thing he got for himself. I felt kind of bad. 

IMG_1010I fell in love with this mirror when I saw it. It was under the table where no on was looking. I could tell it is pretty old. 

IMG_1012You just don’t see detail like this on mirrors anymore. 

I was even more in love when I saw the price. Ten dollars was all they were asking. 

MM was on the lookout for a table we could use to put the TV on. It has been above the mantel for years now and I have absolutely hated it there! I had suggested a night stand we have and don’t really use as a night stand. MM liked the idea, but wanted to find something else. 

We searched everywhere we went for just the right table. On our search, we went to Franklin, North Carolina. There was a shop, which I didn’t get the name of, that just seemed to keep going. Three floors of antiques and collectibles, every room filled and each room a different theme. We looked at, probably 10 to 15 tables in that store. We went around the store twice, looking at everything. Mainly because it was pouring rain and we didn’t want to get wet. haha

We were leaving and as we  were walking towards the car, we spotted this on a back porch with some chairs. 

IMG_1024MM loved it. We checked it out, making sure it was sturdy enough to hold the TV. It didn’t have a top (they dropped and broke it) and she said we could have it for $20! I said “sold!”

Our next stop was Lowe’s, in North Carolina! 

IMG_1028We bought this round table top. MM painted it black just about as soon as we got home on Sunday. 

IMG_1029Here it is all set up. Please excuse the wires. I have to work with them to hide them. 

MM needs to take the TV off the wall. When he does I will get pictures of the TV on the table and share with you. 

When we share the gospel with someone, and they come to know Christ, it’s like finding a treasure. They may have felt old, worn and thrown out. Now they feel new, clean and found. It is such a joy and a blessing to see the change in them. Those are the best treasures that we can store up for ourselves. 

What treasures have you found lately? 

Off to find homes for my treasures! 

Love ya,

Jayne

    You did come home with some treasures. I like your watering can.

  2. I love to go treasure hunting, too, but don’t very often. But today, in preparation for the esate sale we will be having at my mother in law’s house, we went to a couple, just to check out prices. Well, be did have to buy a few things….nothing too exciting, though. A coule of glass plates for a craft project, a box of christmas cards, some halloween cards, and a little cat thing for a friend who loves cats.

    It sounds like you had lots of fun. Congrats on the 27 years. You are just a year behind me!

      Thank you! A treasure is a treasure no mater how small it may be. You just never know what you will find. We don’t go very often either. I tend to go in spurts. I guess now I’m in one of those spurts. lol

  3. what fun! we have flea markets here all summer and they are great. Love the tv table….we love to use old things too…so great to see old things resurrected isn’t it? Wife found an old fashioned bird cage that we have placed in the garden…I will send you picture of it soon….
