Found Treasure

Hello, all! This past weekend was an exciting one for me and my rummaging ventures. I came across some great deals on some awesome items! The best deal, by far, is at the bottom of this post :)

First, is this cute set of ceramic owls. I love the mid-century vibe and my obsession with owls has always been major. With how hot they are right now, how could I resist?

One of them has the sticker still on and is labeled OMC Japan.

Next up is this adorable set of ceramic gnomes. I bought them for my daughter's bedroom but she's already taken to playing with them like dolls. She's so funny with them!


The little sleeping one is my favorite :)

Next is this adorable set of kissing Dutch kids. They're salt and pepper shakers but I think they would be perfect just on display.

The paint isn't in the best shape but I think that adds to their vintage charm.

I love the flowers he's holding behind his back! She's been broken and repaired :(

They still have the plugs and are both stamped with "Japan".

Almost done...this is a set of cafe curtain tiers. They are so vintage and kitschy. I love them!

They look to be hand-made with these little crochet (is that crochet? I don't know....) fruits. I think they're tomatoes, lemons and oranges - kind of a weird combo but hey, whatever works!

I don't have a window they would work in and they definitely don't match the style of my home but they were so cute, I just couldn't pass them up.


This was my best purchase of the day. Three (plastic) Adirondack chairs and two ottomans for TWO DOLLARS!!!


I've been looking for lounge furniture for my deck at a reasonable price and although they really aren't the style I was looking for, at that price I can afford to make them temporary!


They're really faded so I'm giving them a fresh coat of paint. I can't wait to get them out on the deck! I'm by myself this weekend so I'm planning on finishing lots of projects. Why does it seem impossible to get anything done when my kid and husband are home?

Anyhow, if you're interested in any of these items (except the gnomes and chairs, of course!), drop me an email at I couldn't pass them up but they just don't belong with me.

I'll be back this weekend with more projects and recipes. I can't wait to share!


  1. I love owls. I hate that they are "trendy", but I loveeee owls!

  2. Very nice finds. Perhaps the tomatoes are apples? Keeping with a fruit theme. Hard to tell from the photo if knit or crocheted, but I'd bet crochet.
    I think my favorite are the Dutch kids.

  3. ooOOOOo great finds! I especially love the ceramic owls! So cute!

  4. I think the "tomatoes" are cherries (which are a typical vintage kitchen decor item) and yes, that's crochet. I think they're cute!

  5. I have three panels of the curtains and need a fourth. Is it for sale.
