TRASH TO TREASURE TUESDAY.

WELCOME TO TUESDAYS TRASH TO
TREASURE HOSTED BY DIANE AT
HHTP://A PICTURE IS WORTH
A 1,00O WORDS.
MY FIRST PICTURE HERE
ARE ORIGINAL PRINTS OF
J.GOULD.I SENT A PICTURE
OF THEM TO ANTIQUE ROADSHOW.
THEY ARE WORTH $200.00 EACH
AT LEAST.MY HUSBAND GOT THEM
OUT OF THE TRASH OF AN ELDERLY
LADY HE HELPED FROM TIME TO TIME.



THIS PIC IS OF A SETTEE FOR
THE PORCH,ROADSIDE FIND.THE
LITTLE TABLE AND CHAIRS
GARAGE SALE $5.00.THE CUSHIONS
FOR THE SETTEE$5.00.TOTAL
PORCH FURNITURE $10.00.IT'S NOT
THE BEST,BUT IT'S SOMETHING
TO SIT ON UNTIL MY HUSBAND
CLOSES IN THE PORCH.

AND THIS IS A TABLE I FOUND
ALSO AT A GARAGE SALE.I RE-
DID IT.IT TOO WILL GO ON THE
PORCH WHEN IT'S CLOSED IN.
$5.00

AND THIS IS MY FAVORITE.
I FOUND THIS STRIP OF A
FRAME AT A YARD SALE.IT
IS SO HEAVY AND THE DESIGN
IS AWESOME.MY HUSBAND CUT
IT TO MAKE A SMALL FRAME.
I HAD TO PAINT IT,BECAUSE
MY HUBBY MADE SOME CUTS
THAT WEREN'T SUPPOSE TO
BE THERE.I LOVE THIS....

AS I'VE SAID BEFORE
NOTHING MAKES ME FEEL
BETTER THAN TAKING
SOMETHING THROWN AWAY
AND MAKING IT USEFUL
AND SOMETIMES PRETTY.

Good Morning Ann...I love to see what you can do!! Amazing! You have to have imgination to even think of cutting up a part of a frame and making it into a smaller one. I'm getting some good tips from you. I love the little table, too. You are very artistic, my friend! ...Debbie

Anne you are one clever girl! I wouldn't of thought of cutting down a frame either. Gosh that opens up so many opportunities of great finds. I love how you painted that little table. I have never known anyone that can spot road side treasures like you! You are amazing! Love, Cindy

Steals all girlfriend!! That frame is gawgeous!! And your DH dug the bird print out of the trash??? My goodness! What a find! I also love the paint job you did on the small table. I can't wait to see your porch when it's covered! Vanna

Glenda said...

Is that a couple of ducks I see hiding under your settee? Can't blame them for wanting to get out of the noontime sun.
All your finds are really good ones. You do wonderful restorations.

Hi Ann,
You stopped by my place today. Thanks for the comment. You asked about Ruby Tuesday. You post a photo with something red in the photo. If you have a story to go with the photo post that too. Then go here:

Hi Ann, what great bargains you've found. I love the little table and what you did with the picture in the frame.

If you decide to sponsor another child I think that you'll find that Compassion International is a wonderful organization.

MiMi said...

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog to congratulate me on winning the Christmas towels that Becky gave away.

I love your blog! You are one smart girl and I love all the "finds" and what you have done with them. I will definitely be back and I hope you will stop back by my blog as well!

Thanks again and have a great week!

Dawn said...

My favorite thing that you shared is the framed rose. It is so pretty!!!

I'm not good at treasure hunting. All of you ladies that find such wonderful things make me want to start looking for my own new found treasures.

take care,
Dawn

I am totally a 'trash to treasure' gal. When I was single, me and the girls were all about hunting consignment shops, antique shops, and yard sales to find our next project and treasure! TOO FUN! Your ideas are awesome! I especially love the pink/white table.

Thanks for your support with the button over there on the right. We love support!!!!
