Let’s Talk Vintage #119: Tick Tock Working on a Vintage Clock & Our Latest Finds 13


Welcome to Let’s Talk Vintage! This is where you will find blog posts about vintage.

The topics range from new finds to furniture makeovers. Even old recipes

that have been handed down thru the generations are welcome here!


Today I’ll start off with some of my latest finds.


I love old books and couldn’t help but buy this one for the

shop. Poems and Poetry of England? Yes sir, put that in my cart.


A travel guide on Paris? I’ll take that too.

I don’t even mind the tears and damage to the dust jacket



Little restaurant creamers… too cute.


And we acquired a set of  PYREX mixing bowls

in the primary colors: Yellow Green Red Blue!

(My hubby’s amazing find.)


Here are a couple of projects we completed:

GranClock B4

We found this “Grandmother” style clock/bookcase in a local antique

mall, in the basement. As in, it had seen it’s time come and go.

(Couldn’t resist)

Pretty drab and it appeared to have been hand crafted.


The hubby wanted to work on it and decided to give

it the two – tone look.  She looks much better now!

It matches a petite bookcase he did a few weeks ago, which

sold already. We’ll see how much “time” it takes to sell this one!
(Oh, please, someone stop me! Tee hee.)

Pedestal table1

And while the hubs was busy working around the clock, 

I worked on this table.


Seriously now…this Duncan and Phyfe pedestal table had a leather top in

the center, which had some damage. I decided to wax it first and then paint

with chalk paint. This photo was taken before I had a chance to distress it.

I’m happy with how it turned out!


I also worked on updating an antique mirror. I know, I did the unthinkable.

I painted it! But, I love how it looks now! Sometime you just have to

do what you love.


And while we are talking about love…

I just wanted to post a little tribute to my dear feline friend

that I had to say good-bye to last week. Miss Minnie was 21 years old.

I had found her at the humane society in Missouri in 1996

when I was a young local TV promotion producer.

She was of course, one of my favorite finds.

She will be missed.



 Let’s see who is featured this week!


Gina of Victorian Wannabe shared her

wonderful collection of Victorian shell art.

A beautiful and unique collection, for sure.


and Dianne of Deanie’s Stash asked her hubby for a new

organizer in her office space… loved the repurposed piece he used!


and last, but not least, Melissa of Melissa’s Antiques shared her latest finds.

She had me at this pink kitchen sink!  There’s plenty more so stop by her blog, too

if you get a chance after the link up.
