Week-End Finds

I don't have any actual thrift store finds this week (too sick to go anywhere), but I do have some great finds that were given to me by my dear friend.  They've been working on her father-in-laws estate and were ready to call for the furniture and goods to be picked up for donation.  I went over as I will be helping her get the house ready for renters, which I am very excited about. My friend is an accountant (tax season) and has 3 kids under the age of 4.  She does not have the time to go searching for tiles, fixtures, paint colors, etc.  So she has asked me to help her.  Mr. W. had been living in his home for 50+ years and had the same rug, kitchen, and furniture for all those years.  This is where I come in, I'm totally loving pieces of furniture from that time.  My friend told me to take whatever I wanted, because it would be less for them to have to worry about.  So I lovingly agreed. 

My grandmother had one of these tables in her house. I love!
 Here's another angle.
 This was my favorite piece.   I think I have already found a home for it in my family room
These lamps are amazing. I suggested that my friend keep them for her master bedroom.  I told her I would clean and fix them up for her.  I'll let you know the progress on those. They are sitting on my kitchen counter waiting to be cleaned.
 The texture on them is beautiful, I'm just not sure how to clean it.
 I loved the blue in this ceramic lamp.
 I thought this old suitcase had so much character. 
 Here is everything together.
I'm loving all of this weeks finds. I wish I had more space in my house.  What do you do with stuff that you have no space for?

I have that suitcase, well it's part of a 3 piece set. It was my mother in laws and she took it on her honeymoon with her :)
I stopped buying or accepting things unless I know exactly where they will go before they come home. However, I am starting to collect things for another shop I'm opening so it is kind of piling up again but knowing it will be going keeps me sane. Hate clutter :)
