Estate Sale Treasures

 Saturday, my Mom and I happened across a
fabulous Estate Sale about a block from her house.
I found these amazing ship pictures and I had just recently started
scouring the antique stores for some for my family room.
 There were 7 of them, so I bought them all,
and decided to keep these four for myself.

I really love the colors in the ones I have chosen for myself.
I am going to paint the frames off white. They really don't look as
good up close as in the picture. Plus, my walls are kind of dark.

This is an 1893 edition of Gray's Anatomy. I have a much newer one that
I studied from while in school, so this one was just too cool to pass up!

My mom found this amazing Duncan Phyfe buffet that she is going
to use for her big screen tv in their new place.
(I can't wait to show you how we decorate her new smaller home.)
I guess you can see where I get my traditional style.

We also got lot's of pictures and lamps and stuff at the sale, but I  
want to show you my favorite buy of the week.
I found this beautiful mirror at Lone Elm Antiques where we have one of our booths.
It was their 1st anniversary and everything in the store was 15% off, so I had been
keeping my eye on this mirror for a week or so. It was still there when I got to the sale,
so now it is mine.  Just look at that sweet bird on top.

 I don't even think I will paint it. It is just to perfect.
I will be sure to show you where it ends up when I find the right spot for it.
I hope I am not the only one who buys things without knowing
where I am going to put them. :)

Don't forget, Restyled Sundays is still going on through Friday.
I would love to see what you have found or restyled lately!
Linking to the following parties:

  1. Okay, so that mirror is utterly gorgeous and I have turned green with envy! I love the surround and the bird on top, and the aged, slightly worn appearance it has. Beautiful! You really found a treasure :)

  2. Oh my that IS a gorgeous mirror and I would not touch it with paint, it is perfect!

  3. Yes, that mirror is a treasure -- as is that buffet! Swoon!

  4. I LOVE this mirror too! I am going to have to link up to your Restyled Sunday, I am always restyling something :) I found you at Cheri's blog hop, and am your newest follower, will you follow me back?
