There Is A Cure for the Summertime Blues

Standard

Hubby and I have managed to get away twice this summer and hit the road for some treasures. And let me tell you, these trips did not disappoint!

A few weeks after buying our awesome atomic sectional, we stumbled upon this coffee table. A perfect tile-top beauty that matches the sofa in shape and color. It has gold metal legs and edging. I think it looks good with the gold framed shadow box on the wall.

We have also been looking for an appropriate front door to replace the 1990’s upgrade that was here. This beauty was in the same mid-century shop as the coffee table. It is new old stock and never been hung! And only cost $75!

Now….do we paint it or stain it? Hubby and I are discussing this.

You know how crazy we are for old record albums. These were all 50 cents each at the ReStore. They were put out by Firestone and I am now looking for one to complete the set.

Who remembers watching Rudolph and singing along to Silver and Gold?

We change-up our framed albums throughout the year and I thought these would look great for summer:

Note the Pan Am jet on this one!

I managed to pick up some Pyrex and an Elvis for my hoard:

A few things for my Etsy shop:

Of course there are always the things you have to leave behind no matter how much of a bargain they are 😦

This set of dishes were an awesome mix of Atomic & Rustic. The whole set was less than $30. I love the groovy shaped snack plates and big platter/ bowl.

Lamps anyone? These were all under $30 each. I just don’t need any.

Chalk ware ballerinas still in the package. Swoon….

Love this clock; but nowhere to hang it. Same thing with the pink/ gray speckled planter.

This pink sink with Huddee ring and the matching toilet were in the ReStore. I hope someone snatches them up to save their pink bathroom!

How about your summertime thrifting?

Do you find things that are a great deal but you just don’t need them?

Do you buy them and put them away for a rainy day or leave them behind? I am always torn.

Stay tuned for updates on the exterior here; the cement trucks will be here next week!
