New Found Treasures

“Every artist dips his brush in his own soul, and paints his own nature into his pictures.”  Henry Ward Beecher
Sharing with you some of the finds from last Thursday treasure hunt in the little town of Ridgefield.   I love old kitchen items and will continually try to make room for pieces I find.  Another love are any interesting things made from wire.  I have many interesting wire office baskets.  I'm thrilled with finding an old wire dish drainer, along with an interesting hand crochet dish washer.
Baskets can be found all over my house in practically every room.  When I spotted this small picnic basket, it was a must have.
The two tiny irons are a nice addition to my iron collection.
 These two small ceramic, retro pitchers are just right for the kitchen windowsill.
Our biggest find of the day was a wooden wash stand.  With the need to replace the old worn one that we had for many, many years, we really thought it would be sometime before we would find a replacement.  How lucky we were!  Besides, this one is even better than the last.  I'll share a photo when we get the stand into place in the flower bed, in front of our house.


  1. what a fun and productive day you had! Can't wait to see the nightstand!

  2. The retro pitchers are lovely. The traditional picnic basket is just adorable. It is a must have especially in spring and summer. Outdoor activities require the presence of these baskets.
