I took a drive to one of my favorite junk love shops.  I know you have heard me talk about this place before but it is a super place to find some of the neatest treasures.  So if you live in the area you must stop by Tattered Tiques. http://tatteredtiques.blogspot.com/  Nancy, Julie and Anne run this shop. They are a mother daughter team and they are the sweetest three ever.  The first time you meet them you will see how sweet and talented they are.  I love to go there. I don't think I have ever walked out of there without finding some kind of treasure!!!!


I got this cute bunting that is white letters painted on burlap. So so cute. Not sure if it will stay where I have it now but I really think it is so cute and a great Easter banner.


Ok cute frames are not just for pictures and walls anymore. I got this chippy and thought it would be cute on my table.  I can see many cute themes for center pieces around this chippy frame.  I got another smaller oval old frame that I am hanging in my guest room on my frame wall.


Sometimes you just find a sweet little treasure that grabs a hold of you and says take me home. Well I had that today with this little chippy.  Nancy makes these cute pin cushions out of old silver sugar bowls. How stinkin cute are these!!!!

Look at the cute little detail of the ribbon and button. Had to have this little pretty.

Also purchased another chippy frame from there today that I am planning on hanging in my guest room on the "frame wall" I think empty frames speak volumes with history and imagination.


I also had gotten this old chippy door a while ago from their shop and I hung my angel that some of you may remember from Christmas.  She was too pretty and special to put away after the Christmas decor came down so I found her some everyday decor to hang onto and put her in my other guest room on that old chippy door.  She is a special guardian angel for loved ones that stay in this guest room.
Well I got out of my house and the sun was shinning and it felt so mild out today. Loved it. Sun, mild temp and junk treasures it does not get any better than that.
Hope you are having a great day too.

I am sharing my treasure finds with What's it Wednesday with the very sweet Patti  http://ivyandelephants.blogspot.com/

  4. What a score with the frames Kris. As an artist I am always on the lookout for special frames.
    At times I design a canvas around the frame, not the other way around.
    Thanks for sharing your treasures.
    Hugs, Gee

  6. Great finds, Kris! Love the banner ~ I think it looks great there, too. Love the pincushion. I always say I'm going to make one of those myself. Luckily I have a bloggy friend that made me one for my birthday one year, otherwise I'd be waiting forever to myself to get one done.

  9. Kris,
    You are the best! I love how you can go home and create the the perfect vignette so quickly. I think I will steal your table frame idea for the Easter table. Thanks for your support and friendship.

  12. Such fun finds. I just received a Paper Source order in the mail - I too look forward to the mail- and I had forgotten I ordered some canvas pennants to make a banner. I am hoping for some fun crafting time this weekend.

    Funny aside - when my husband mailed off your package on Monday, he also mailed a gift for our daughter who lives in San Francisco. I asked her today if she had received it yet - no she hasn't. Two days from California to Chicago, but already 4 days just 300 miles north and it has't arrived.

  21. I agree with you about empty frames. They look great on the wall like that. I love that cute little silver pin cushion. I've never seen one like that before. What a great idea to repurpose a sugar bowl like that! That store had some neat things.

  23. I received my kit for my own "Grace" but I think she won't be born til some time this summer, she is adorable overlooking the Guest Cottage! Your Easter bunting is adorable and bet it will be all over Pinterest in no time at all...but I think my fave is the beautiful ruffled table runner, gorgeous frame and precious bunny! I can't believe you get those gorgeous frames just like that, no need to change anything!!! I love coming to visit with you, I always come home with wonderful ideas...thanks for sharing!
    Have a GREAT weekend!
    We're going to get rain, ice, sleet and snow... OH JOY!
    Hugs,

  29. Hi Kris!! Love all the white frames on that sweet guest room. :) I am going to have to make my next trip up there a couple of extra days longer to visit all the shops. Definitely want to check this one out. My son told me last night he had to go over to his father-in-laws to help get all the water out of the basement. The sump pump has stopped working for some reason. It's a mess up there. I hope you have a super sweet week. xo
