Friday finds!

I was driving home from tennis today when I spotted a sign for an estate sale out of the corner of my eye.  With just twenty minutes left to "beat the clock" and get home before the babysitter left, I made the executive decision. Drive quickly, look quickly, explain later.

Sho' nuff..... in the next ten minutes I found myself racing up the driveway of a great old Houston home, knowing that just beyond the next wall would be a couple of things that I couldn't live without.


Here's what I found.....  and what my hubby had to haul home for me on his lunch hour..... because he's just THAT great!!!!

These wrought iron chairs don't photograph well, but let me tell ya....
I love them!!! 
With a bit of dolling up (ie: shabby cushions), they will be just perfect.
Even more perfect?  the entire set, including table & ottoman~ $25

you can't get these kind of details without paying a fortune!  
Love these chairs.... and only $20 for the pair

Six new and unique bottles.. 
I've got to spruce them up with some flowers, but let's start with this and I'll update later.  
A whopping .50 each

Aside from the chairs, I also found this adorable little table.  
Never mind the tray on top.  I just threw these things in the bedroom until 
I can figure out what the heck I'm going to do with my new treasures.
table~ $15

Happy Friday everyone!!
