Treasures & Trinkets Thursday.....My future treasures!

I thought I would share some of the items I got at yard sales this week cause they will be my FUTURE treasures! I hit a couple of really good ones and here are some of the things I got!

Ohhh, I'm SO excited to show you what I got, but I'm saving my BEST item for last!

This first item had a sticker of $1.00 on it...so I picked it up and was looking at it......(I had already decided it was worth a buck) when the lady said, "oh you can have it for fifty cents!"
I like the chippy finish on it, so I'll show you later how I decorate with it.

The next item I just purchased because I KNOW I will be able to use it later on multiple projects...
after all, who doesn't LOVE paintable wallpaper that looks like ceiling tin!
I got it for a buck.
(it's still new in plastic!)

The next thing I bought was just SO beautiful I couldn't pass it up~!
(remember I have three boys~)

I actually plan on using the overlay for a pillow or to cover lampshades
Just look at the sweet embroidery!
It was only $2.00!

(I almost feel guilty for thinking about cutting it up!)

Okay you guys, now don't laugh at this next item...
I KNOW it's ugly, but I didn't buy it for the clock, I bought it for the bubble glass and the frame.
Are you ready to see it??
(it's actually not too bad looking in this photo, but it was in real life)

And no, it's not broken, I was just so excited to get it apart I had already taken the back off
when I realized I  needed a "before" picture. :)
I have some cool plans for this frame and bubble glass!

Are you ready for my last item.?
I am SO giddy about this find that I can't even begin to express it in words!~
YOO HOO!! (ok maybe those words start to tell you how excited I was to find this! LOL)

Here we go...........

I got this baby for (you aren't gonna believe this..) $5.00!
Yes, you read that right...5 bucks!
The lady said she had paid $15 for it but then decided she couldn't use it....
great for me!
I know, I know it's brass...but all you guys know what I do with anything brass, right? :-D
(I'll let you in on a little secret...I've already started working on this one...I just couldn't wait!!)
You guys aren't gonna believe how great it's looking!

Well that's my yard sale goodies....
what have you got that you can link up
I wanna see your treasures OR future treasures!

Blessings and Hugs
