One Man's Junk...

Hi, everyone!

I hope that you're having a great week!

I recently got 2 'new' treasures at the flea market and wanted to share them with you.

The first thing is this sweet concrete garden statue.

It's rough and shabby, but I fell in love with it!  And at all of $5, how could I resist?

I set it on a chippy old column base to add a little height, and it has a new home on a small bench in the back area of my living room.

On the bottom shelf of the bench I placed my other 'new' treasure, this old metal tool chest.

This thing is big and HEAVY!  (I struggled carrying it to my car!)

Again, it's shabby, and full of the rusty, crusty goodness that I love!

I had this spot in mind for it, and was happy that it fit perfectly!

So in this case, one man's junk is MY treasure! :)

I still have my little barnwood cabinet hanging above the bench, filled with white goodies.

So here's the complete new vignette...

All thanks to some 'good junk'!

I appreciate you stopping by!

Have a wonderful day!  :)


  1. an unlikely pairing - but you made it work! :) lovely.

  2. I love the little garden statue! I have a few outside that I keep thinking I'll bring in for the winter. No one sees them under 3 feet of snow! Yours is so romantic! :)
    love and blessings~

  3. Love your finds...$5 for that wonderful statue!!

  4. You scored BIG time! I can't believe you only paid $5 for that statue! I have one that is super heavy too in my half bath that I recently moved to a new location. I bought mine at an antique store many years ago. It's one of the few things that I have never tired of. I love yours and the chippy tool chest you found. It looks perfect on that shelf.

  5. Susan,
    Your good junk happens to be amazing and truly wonderful additions. As always your vignettes draw the eye in and rewards with a gorgeous display.

  6. I adore the garden statue!!! I have been looking for one forever!!! Great find!!!

  7. Wow your little statue is so pretty. Every little thing you find is so pretty. I must be looking in the wrong places.

  8. I would have brought both of these treasures home, too ! Good eye !!

  9. These are fun, Susan. And those hydrangeas? Glorious!

  10. I saw an old statue similar to that one and the buy wanted $85 for it!!!!

  11. Love! I mean, really, what else is there to say? Just Love! Blessings, Cindy xoxo

  12. What a sweet little corner filled with your vintage white treasures! You've arranged everything to perfection!

  13. Hi Susan, everything ties together so nicely. It looks great! It's always fun to find a treasure at a good price. No wonder you couldn't resist. Milena

  17. Hi Susan, that statue is exactly what would move me with such emotion I too would have to bring it home with me, yes a place in my home it would stay, I have not found one that moves me enough or looks as crumbled as yours, it's absoulutly breathtaking. The tool box? Yes! I have one and love it as well. Your vignette is soulfully well placed, I wish that statue were my find, I think it might end up on the coffee table trunk so I could stair at it everyday.

    Wonderful post and a great imspiring visit, I am going to hit the flea market this weekend...I am working on a fabulous armoire, it's plain but will speak my French language when it's done.


    See you soon

  18. Just lovely! and bargain prices make it so much better.

  19. Oh Susan your statue is so sweet. Too bad it is so heavy or I would be begging you to send that to me!!!! Love your finds. Have a great week end.

  20. You never fail to show us what we can do to showcase our finds. Love how it all came together to make such a grand look. Very cool finds Susan! Blessings, Edie Marie and Marie Antoinette
