Mirror Makeover & A Whatchamacallit!

I went thrifting today for a bit..
Would love to share my finds with ya'll..
And, ask ya's for a bit o' help.

I found this:

Does anyone have a clue what it is?
A friend on my
suggested it might be a toast or napkin holder.
I'm going with toast holder, but, would really
love to know for sure.

Do you have any clue?

I also found all of these:

A huge ironstone platter: 21 x 14.5!
No cracks, no chips.. just gorgeous!

Marked James Edwrds & Sons/Dalehall.
Searched on the internet a bit, found that it's
dated 1852-1882. (yay!)

Perfectly hand painted shabby chic pink plate.
Again, no chips, no cracks..
Just perfect!

all these wooden eggs!!

I asked the lady at the store,
"How much for the wooden eggs?"
She says, "You can have everything in the box for $8."


The picture below shows what else, besides the eggs,
that was in the box for the low price of $8.

There's some vintage buttons, craft stix,
wood plaques, velcro, confetti,
apholstry needles,
glass etching kit and more!

Found these books to craft with..
upon further inspection and investigating ,
the top one looks like it might be from the 1800's..

And, here's my Mirror Makeover:

I found this mirror in an antique store
a couple of weeks ago.

I just love these types of frames.

A couple of coats of white paint later..

It now resides on my wall..


Linking up at:


  1. Hmmmm, not sure what that thing is. Your friend may be right. I love those wooden eggs.

  2. Me too, I found a tiny little vintage sign on a wood stick a few weeks ago.. it said, "Fresh Eggs." So, that put me on a hunt for some eggs like the ones I found today. I wanted to put them all together in a galvanized basket. I can't believe I found them today.. sooo happy!

  3. Love that mirror too, I had a similar frame but made it into a chalk board. Great finds!


  4. Thanks Sylvia :)
    I'm now on the hunt for the wall scones that go with it, I need something on both sides to fill that wall up a bit.
    Thanks for stoppin' over!
    Hugs to ya, Sherri

  5. Hello,
    Love the shabby chic pink plate! It's beautiful!
    Carly ;)

  6. That pink plate is sooo pretty :)
    Love what you did with the mirror...

    I'm not sure about that other thingy that you asked about or what it really could be...I'm thinking maybe it is a soap holder? or maybe not lol! Thought I'd throw in my two cents on that though :)

  7. Love the frame and love the finds. What are you going to do with the eggs? I've actually been hoping to stumble across something like that you lucky duck! So many possibilities...:)

  8. Wow, I love everything, I don't know if I would recognize ironstone if I saw it. the mirror looks great. I'm thinking the mystery thing is a casserole holder....???


  9. Mirror is a beauty-cool frame-I'm your newest follower-stop on over to visit!!

  10. I love all your finds!! I love th mirror you have painted and put up!!! Love the eggs too!!! I have lots to paint I just don't want to paint in the heat Ugh!!!
    Enjoy your day!!
    Suzann ~xoxox~

  11. Thanks everyone. The whatchamacallit is only about 4-5 inches long. And the "slats" that go acrossed it are raised, not dipped. So, soap holder is out of the question. I'm going to bring it with me to the booth tomorrow and see if the girls at the front desk know.. LOL

    I'm with ya Suzanne, I'm currently battling with an old dresser.. she's almost ready to paint.. but, I havne't been in the mood to sweat the last couple of days! LOL
    Thanks for your help everyone, I will get that thingy named yet.. just wait! You'll see!! hehe


  12. Nice finds, I like the frames like that also.

  13. Hey Sherri, no I didn't go to Rennigers, I used a picture that I had taken before, needed a picture filler. But I will definetely let you know next time I am there!!


  14. Thanks Jeanne!

    Sylivia: Ah.. ok :) Renningers is always good for a photo!
