I went to an estate sale on Friday and found a few things. This was day number two for the sale, so it was picked over and a lot of the really neat stuff I had seen in photos was already gone, but there was a fair amount of B-list stuff left. Plus it was a 25% off day, so it's always fun to get stuff for less than the price tag.
I found these two 1970's-ish framed nautical prints. With plastic frames. Yeah, rocking the plastic frames.
I liked the prints, so I will try to paint the frames and see how they look at that point.
I had every intention of having them painted, so I could show you a fantastically impressive before and after in today's post, but then spring sprung up yesterday and I was out enjoying the beautiful day instead of painting.
I found a silver serving tray and two tiny little loaf pans. Silver serving tray, because I'm still loving tarnished silver and loaf pans because I thought I could make some gardening doohickey thing out of them. No idea what, but they looked promising.
Last year I bought a large enamelware basin that I couldn't bring myself to use in the garden, because it was in pristine condition. That won't be a problem with this one, because it already comes with a big old rusty drainage hole.
Hope you had a wonderful weekend. I survived the clock changing day on Saturday with only a few time related mishaps.

I love the rusty tarnished treasures you found!
I am digging the loaf pans. I found next to nothing on Saturday. Feast or famine.
Great finds! I love the enamelware.
Once those frames are painted and distressed a little, you will never know they are plastic. Love the loaf pans.

can't wait for our yard sales to start around here. The anticipation of what you might find is so much fun!
Some great finds...well, except for the PLASTIC FRAMES...lol My Mom had a set of those loaf pans. I am pretty sure they are aluminum and probably even now causing problems in my body that I am not aware of-due to eating all the breads that came out of them.
Hope you have a great night- xo Diana

I also bought a two dollar picture today with a resin frame. I think it is from the 1960's. i love your old enamelware pan.
Looks like some fun garden fun!
Love the enamel pan with the red border. In this case, though, you'd be throwing out the bath water before the baby.
Love the nautical prints. Found an oil painting in Goodwill for $1.99. The loaf pans you found are awesome too.
Fabulous nautical prints. Great stuff...as usual! I'm officially ready for spring and more estate sales! Bring-em ON!!

My Mom used to make her bread in a pan just like you found. Nice finds!

Those loaf pans are so cute! Maybe you could grow a banana bread plant. 🙂
I say you did very good!! Great finds!
Great finds! I love the bread loaf pans 🙂
Love all your finds. The red enamel ware is perfect for the garden. ALso love those loaf pans. Can't wait to see the boat prints all done up!
Great finds. You can never have too many silver tarnished pieces or red and white enmaelware too! I love the loaf pans too. can't wait to see what you do with them for the garden. I was just thinking the other day that I need to add a little whimsy to my garden.
