Treasure Found?

Hi all!  Hope you all had a great weekend!  We had a very busy one, and I'll show you some of the stuff we got done later this week.  For now, I thought I would show the "treasure" I found when we went to a local auction house. 

This is an old croquet set (obviously right?)  It was sitting out in front of the auction house looking rather dirty and lost.  It also had no price on it.  So, of course I asked, first they told me $10, I hemmed and hawed, and then they offered it for $5, of course I told them the price was right!  I brought it home and cleaned it up.  I must admit, hubby is very skeptical, he thinks I should just resale it.  I plan to put it either in our living/dining room or in the family room as decoration.  Hopefully we'll convince him it is perfect for our house!!  Hopefully I'll be able to show it to you again when the rooms are completed!!  Tune in later this week for a look at a few projects that are done and a couple that are still in the works!

  1. Beautiful set. I found one a few months ago and I'm just not sure whether to play with it or leave it as a decoration. Aren't the chipping paint pieces just so beautiful. A great find.

  2. So pretty! I love them! Hope hubby lets you keep them.

  3. What a great find. I am sure after he sees it in place he will appreciate it.

  4. I do that all the time with my hubby! He finally has stopped asking (18 years later) why I am buying something!


  5. Nice! It's FUN~you should use them!

  6. Thanks all! I'm loving this set!! I can't wait to get it in place and figure out exactly where it is going to go!

  7. I love croquet sets. Great find!

    Luckett's Fair is August 28-29 this year. Hope you can come. :)
