This past weekend I went to visit one of my best friends, Megan. (Do you remember when I posted here about her amazing furniture painting skills? Keep an eye out! She is working on several new projects that will be unveiled in the near future!) We were long overdue for a catch-up session, so I traveled about 6 hours northeast to her quaint town in Missouri for an extended weekend with her and her adorable family. We had a blast chatting at record-breaking speeds, cheering on our team at the Oklahoma State vs. Mizzou football game, and scouring her favorite antique stores for some treasures! Check out my scores!
This awesome Mid Century Modern footstool is in need of some laminate patching, but for $7.50, it was a deal I couldn’t pass up!
I’m always searching for pretty and loved quilts. In this case, the quilt is pretty loved. And I love it! Tucked away in a booth at the main street (haunted) antique mall with a 40% off sale sign posted, it called my name. I walked away with the cozy quilt at $11.40. And the round table may not seem like much now, but soon it will be a gleaming white beauty in my dining room! Megan, who is a furniture hunter extraordinaire, found it for me a couple of weeks prior at a garage sale for $5.00! (It even came with two chairs, but they were falling apart and were better suited for her family’s backyard fire pit).
I’ve been wanting to change it up in the dining room and have been looking at round tables. Something like table below. And Megan snagged a similar one for me that will work perfectly!

And this vintage globe glows when plugged in! Well, at least it has the ability to and the shopkeeper said that with a little electrical wire work, it definitely will. I will soon be taking this puppy to Best Hardware here in Tulsa for what is hopefully a quick repair. (Best Hardware can fix anything!) For $7.00 plus the cost of the repair, this gorgeous globe will light up my entryway!
And finally, this $3.00 leaf candy dish is a perfect addition for my fall decor!
I’m hoping to hit up a few more sales this coming weekend. I’ll let you know if I find anything! Have you found any good deals lately? What are they?
