Recent Finds and Acquisitions

It's been a good while since I've posted a collection of my recent treasure hunting finds, so since I'm pretty sure you're sick of my recent forays into Photoshopping, here's some pretties to feast your eyes upon!

Would ya believe me if I told you that I got this at Tuesday Morning?

I know, isn't that just lovely?
I normally only go to Tuesday Morning for craft supplies, but while venturing down the home decor aisle, this beauty stopped me in my tracks. If you haven't given Tuesday Morn a look lately, you might wanna look again.

Elsewhere, in my Etsy Shop, here's some of what's currently for sale, what's recently sold, and what's coming soon...






(to a notorious, hog-wild fellow blogger, no less!)


And coming soon to my Etsy...



Vintage Silver Name Cups

Madonna and Child Vintage Print
( STYLE TIP: absolutely perfect for the Jeanne d'Arc look! )
(Thank you, Kathleen!) 


And from the "mine-all-mine" files, a couple of recent Etsy purchases...

Vintage Paris Business Card Holder, purchased from my friend Troy and the good folks at Junk Exchange.

And then there's this. Y'all are gonna be kicking yourselves that you missed this.

Vintage Clipboard with Calendar, stolen from Michelle at Vintage Junky.

Here's a tip for ya....if you go to someone's blog, love their style, love their junk, nose around a bit...chances are, they either have an Etsy shop or an online store where you can purchase a little piece of their style for your very own. Which is how I scored the last two killer objects!

The only other Etsy news I have to report is that I'm still mulling over selling my photographic art prints in the near future. I've had lots of positive feedback, and for that I thank you all. It'll happen, I'm just not sure when.

And for all those who have sent me get well wishes, thank you! I'm still dragging, but expected to live. ;-)

Until next time....

oink, oink...

Love all your goodies! Especially the Tuesday Morning find! We had a Tuesday Morning close to me but it closed... wahhhhhh!!! You take care of yourself and we'll all go shopping together soon. Oh darn, I forgot we live so far from each other. Have a restful evening, Dear Anne... hugs from Georgia!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Love all your finds and was cruising your Etsy store yesterday and love it!

Debra@CommonGround said...

Miss Oinkalicious got a cutie little purse, ha ha! The Madonna print is just so gorgeous as are the candleholders, glad you're feelin' better! I'm fixin' sketti tonight, you on?

Laurie said...

Our Tuesday Morning closed, also, so I will just have to enjoy your find, much cheaper! I love the frame of this piece, and the softness of the floral print.

Faded Charm said...

You've got some goodies girl. I love the madonna print. It would look great with the print I just got from Rebecca, don't ya think? How much is it?

Hope you are having a wonderful day.

Ticking and Toile said...

LOVE that Madonna & Child print! How big is it?? You did make a serious score on that vintage calendar from Vintage Junky. That is the coolest!


Brynwood Needleworks said...

Hi Anne:
Love your vintage finds! Especially the perpetual calendar...too cool!
Take care and I'll "chat" with you again soon.

Anonymous said...

"the Jeanne d'Arc look" that phrase and all your goodies! I found something at someone else's blog today and I wrote her and ask her to please, please sell to me. Haven't heard back from her yet...but I am hoping. Happy White Wednesday.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

Oh Anne Sweetie...
I so love your treasures. The tray is just gorgeous that you found at Tuesday Mornings and I love the little pig purse. How devine is that? The candelabras are so beautiful. Naturally, SOLD...You have really been discovering some wonderful treasures of late. I thank you as always for sharing sweetie.

Have a beautiful evening. Country hugs sweetie and so much love...Sherry

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Anne,

I adore all your treasures ~ the tray is beautiful and I just adore the vintage pram ~ I have a replica one like it, for a doll, but it is not near as nice as your pretty one.

I hope that you are having a lovely week

north pal said...

we were not tired of your photograpy, but have to say your tuesday morning purchase is a dandy and the sold candleabra WAS spectacular.


Miss Mustard Seed said...

Very cool things! And Michelle really did snatch up a great find.

Prior said...

Tuesday morning tray is great... I love the vintage desk calendar... cool, I remember my grandma having one, Lezlee

Auntie Cake said...

I am so loving those baby silver name cups. And, I am going to have to check out Tuesday Morning sometime. Ya done good!

Journal Swag said...

Oh my gosh, what beautiful things! My Grandma had a cool calendar like that one. I love Kathleen's(Faded Charm)taste, I'm betting that is THE lucky Kathleen who bought your Mother and Child picture? She and I are practically neighbors! She is the sweetest (and has very cool things at shows)!! I love Tuesday Morning too! Sadly, the nearest one just moved about a half hour further away. (Bummer)... Oh yes, and I thought I was the only one who knew they have great craft stuff at -way- marked down prices!
Thank you for the wonderfully sweet and thoughtful comments, Anne. YOU are so sweet!

I *gasp*
am in love *gasp*

It takes my breath *gasp*

Tammy@T's Daily Treasures said...

Thanks for stopping by! I've never heard of Tuesday Morning. I've been too far away for a long, long time. :) That tray is absolutely fantastic and would make a great table! Love the vintage baby stroller and the tole tray. the Protected figurine is also very sweet. And you are right, the photos I posted yesterday are in San Antonio. Renee lived here in Kuwait for several years but moved to San Antonio about 4 years ago. We went to visit her two summers ago. Loved it! Hope you feel much better and have a fabulous day. :) Tammy said...

I can see why those last items are "keepers"!

Rosemary said...

Love all of it!
No I can't believe you got that tray at Tuesday's. Love the baby buggy, so cute.
You have a great day!

Polly said...

Fun stuff Anne! But, I LOVE the silver cups and the calender. That little pearly design is so perfectly vintage!!! I wish we could go out shopping together!!

I read your comment about having to contort your body around your cat. So true! But, just wait until you're my age and doing all the contorting every night! I've got more pinched nerves in my back than you would believe, all from contorting around a dog and a cat! But, they're the best, and I wouldn't trade em for anything!!



Unknown said...

G'morn Anne ~ Is that a Bradley & Hubbard old vintage metal frame? If it is, it is worth a lot of money. It should be stamped with B&H &/or numbers. I love it.

TY for your sweet notes, I am doing much better daily now.

Have a beautiful day ~
Hugs, Marydon

Anne Lorys said...

Hi Marydon,
Nope, there are no marks on the frame. Too bad, right? ;-)

Oh, and a lot of you have referred to the Tuesday Morning actually has hanging aperture in the back, so it's meant to be a wall hanging. I think it'd look smashing as a tray, too!

Polly, you said to "wait until I'm your age"....grrrrrl, I'm way older than you already! Wanna lay money down on it? ;-)

Okay, off to the store to get more medicine, ugh!


Junk Exchange said...

our partner, sherry used to manage the local tuesday mornings ..

love the tray .. reminds me of a victorian painting i once had ..


Christie Hines said...

Hey Anne,
I love Tuesday Morning too, (we live about an hours drive to one, but I always find something good there too!) That's so vintagey first glance, I thought it was a vintage the way...great finds...that mirror has got to be the deal of the century...don't you just love finding something for a dime!?
Hope you are feeling much better and hope you have a great weekend!
Big Hugs,

red.neck chic said...


I can't even say anything I'm laughing... that "hog" is the bestest ever - and I know without a doubt it's going to a fine FINE pig pen. ROFLMBO!!!!!!!!! You are PRICELESS Anne! And girl - get your prints in Etsy!!! I love the silver cups.... uhmmm.... drooling over them. LOL I'm a sucka for baby cups - are those baby cups?

Okay Mrs. Gorgeous - feel better soon!!!

Unknown said...

Oh Anne! I LOVE that Tuesday morning "tray". I wish we had one close by. It's so unique! I always love wandering through your shop....some day I may show up there in Texas to see it in person!

I am in search of the "pefect" little vanity type mirror for a little re-do I'm inspired to do. I thought I would have you keep your eye out for something that might work for me. I just did an entry with my inspiration photo and a few photos of my existing space. When you get a chance, take a look. Maybe you could find a mirror for me?

best to you,
