Friday's Find #159

Thank God it's thrifty Friday, Friends! One of the best things about summer is the abundance of yard sales and I hit several great ones where I scored this week's fabulous finds. Anytime I see an ornate Italian frame like this one, I grab it. I decorate with them throughout my home, so it's a keeper!

I'm always happy to find vintage dishes that match one of my collections, like this Lifetime China Co. Gold Crown plate.

Next, I love mint julep cups and this one is a perfect addition to my silver collection, worn patina and all!

I frequently use vintage books as decor and I'm partial to old ecclesiastical volumes.

At first glance I thought this was a candlestick, but then realized it's an old lamp base. I'll probably use it as a type of pedestal to add height to upcoming seasonal vignettes.

Did you happen to notice the updated book cover I snuck in on the sidebar this week? It's been almost a year since I launched my first eBook chronicling my journey from divorce to a healed heart. In celebration of its first anniversary, I'm planning a relaunch and have made a few changes--same book, just an updated cover plus I've decided to list it exclusively on Amazon. I'll be sharing more soon about a special sale, so stay tuned and spread the word!

  1. That frame is so pretty! Good finds as always. I can't wait to read your book, I'll start it this weekend.

  2. I love your finds Cecilia! Especially the frame and silver lamp base. Yes it does look like a candlestick!

  3. I love that plate! It's perfect for your house. :-) looking forward to seeing what you use the lamp base for too. I recently bought a tarnished silver pitcher and I love how it looks! I finally understand the attraction to it...your cup is fabulous!
    I like the updated book cover (about half way through the book too. Wonderful so far! It can apply to so much more than divorce).

  4. Yes Cecilia, I did notice the change in your book cover. So fitting and it looks great. I love all your finds, especially the lamp base. You will find lots of uses for that. Hope you are going to that "everything $1.00" sale today.
    Happy hunting.

  5. I would have bought all that stuff myself! I love-love-love me some great treasures :-)

  6. That lamp base is fabulous, and I love the details of that frame. I can't resist frame like that either.

  8. The frame is beautiful! It reminds me of the one from Snow White...mirror, mirror on the wall!!

  9. I'm with you, I would have bought it all! So glad you had such luck:) xoKathleen
