Show and Tell Friday

TGIF!!!!  It's a cold, blustery day today in SW Virginia.  But the sun is shining and it looks like there will be great weather for the weekend ahead. 

I am participating in Romantic Homes Friday Show and Tell.  You can find some very inspiring, and creative ideas there.  Pour yourself that second cup of coffee and pop on over there and be prepared to spend some time! 

This week I'm showing the rest of the goodies that I bought at the auction sale last month.  I admit, I went a little overboard, but I absolutely love everything that I bought and don't have a bit of buyers remorse.

 I love this Eastlake chair and got two of them that match.  I have two already that are very similar and I am going to use them with my antique table in my kitchen.  They are newly upholstered, however I'm not digging that color and will re-upholster in a color that goes with the cobalt blue in my kitchen.
 I love the detail on the top!
 This spinning wheel is gigantic!  It's called a great wheel and really, it's just too big for the space I have it in so it will probably go up for sale.  I really like it though.
 I loved the colors in this Austrian dish.
And last but not least, a Shirley Temple pitcher in great condition!

I am headed to an estate sale today at lunch.  About a month ago I went to a sale and bought this set of dishes:
I got a complete set except there were no cups to go with it.  Today they are selling the items in the basement of the same house where I bought the dishes.  I am hoping that perhaps the cups got separated from this set and may be somewhere in that basement!  Wish me luck!
Have a great weekend!

Those chairs are beautiful, I've always liked Eastlake furniture. They will make a beautiful dining room set.The rest of your goodies are really pretty too, this is the first time I've ever seen a Shirley Temple pitcher. I learn something new every day in blog land. Thanks for visiting.

Oh Sandy at Quill Cottage just got bit by the Eastlake bug. I think your chairs look elegant. Very nice spinning wheel, too. Too bad that it's not the right size for what you need. Next time!
