Arrr! R You a Treasure Hunting Pirate?

There are some things that never change through time.  Pirates are known to look for buried treasures.  Back in time, they were searching for Gold and Jewels in buried chests following a map with a huge X.



Today's pirates are looking for buried treasures such as vintage furniture, accessories, beautiful fabrics, dishes, etc.  Currently, pirates' adventures still start with following the treasure map.
 to locate buried treasures in locations such as Multi-Family Garage Sales, Auctions, Goodwill, Habitat for Humanity, and local consignment shops.

Instead of using spy glasses to locate treasures
A chic pirate might wear these instead

to locate treasures on E-bay, Craigslist, or local newspaper advertisements.

I would like to share some of my discovered "buried treasures" at Goodwill from this week



The tray that the treasures are sitting on is  from The "closed" Bombay Store.  The tray  was purchased last Saturday for $3.99. Woo Hoo! (I had removed the price tag)

The small pumpkin had an original price tag of $10.99, and I purchased this jewel for $1.99.



This lovely metal pot (will look great painted) was $3.99.



The large vase will look great cleaned up with some twine wrapped around the neck cost $3.99.


The floor lamp was a steal for $9.99.  I cannot decide if I will paint it white or black.  (If you have any color suggestions, let me know)  I really like the burlap lamp shade with lace over the burlap made by Linda over at Delight.  Maybe, that could be an option for the floor lamp.




These are only a few of the treasures unburied from my adventures.

 I know most of you pirates have found beautiful treasures that caught your eyes and turned your houses into homes.

The best part of the treasure is not the treasure itself, but the memories of the adventure, especially when the discovery is shared with fellow pirates, who are friends and/or family.

ARRR! Enjoy your Treasure Hunts!

  14. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use
    WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
