"Another Day...More Finds"

     I love waking up and thinking..."Where shall we go today?" And of course our first response is let's hit our favorite thrift stores and out the door we go! (Thank goodness I'm still on Christmas break)...because I found some great things and now I'm happy to share them with you.
     My original thoughts for some of them where to paint white and then lightly sand giving them an aged look with some of the gold patina showing through. And if you purchase the Le Creuset pans brand new they are quite expensive but I found these for pennies!

     But now I'm having second thoughts and not sure which direction to take so I'll ask you for your thoughts? Oh and be sure to look for these items after I repurpose some of them in a future post.

     Thanks for sharing and until break is over...happy collecting and thrifting.

Adding to my collection


  1. Hi, it's my first time visiting your blog, but it looks like you've found some great stuff! I assume you are asking if you should paint the shelf or not. I say paint it. I think that would be a great updated look for the shelf. Even a black with the gold shining through would be nice. I happen to love Le Crueset. I am jealous! :-)

  2. Hello Michelle,
    I'm glad you found my blog and finding great 'stuff' is what The Blue Farmhouse is all about because I've been doing it for years. Not only finding but decorating my home and making some available for sale at "Sweet Repeats". Thanks for the suggestion on the shelf and yes I too, love Le Crueset and I found these for $24.99. Hope you visit again:)
