Shabby Chippy Treasure Market

Hi Everyone.  
Saturday Terry and I took a drive up over the border of Illinois and into Wisconsin.  There is the cutest little historic town just north of Milwaukee called Cedarburg.

They have cute shops and great places to eat and a winery.

Jeanine from Chippy Shabby lives right there in Cedarburg and was having one of her fabulous home sales.  

The drive is only about 1 hour and 15 minutes.




Here is Jeanine's cute little sale sign she had on her blog.  Doesn't that cute chair just make you want to jump in your car and go to her sale.



It was pouring rain when Jeanine opened at 8am.  Chippy treasures galore.

No worries that never stopped us junkin peeps.  It did clear out in about 15 minutes so that was great.  I also meet a few peeps that follow my blog and that was really fun to be recognized from my blog.  So fun to put faces with the wonderful followers that visit my blog.

This is one of Jeanine's pictures she took a better shot of the opening of her wonderful sale than I did.  That is Terry in the background in his yellow shirt in the rain!!!!

I really should have gotten that cute french pitcher.    It was a chippy sweet and fun piece.  Maybe at the next sale.  Love this cubby with her ironstone cups too.    I was junk drunk!  So many wonderful treasures.



Here are some of the treasures I got and am re loving into my home.



I have always wanted one of these mason jar holders.  So Jeanine had this one for sale and it came home with me.  I got some fresh flowers out of the garden to fill in the jars.  


Love this on my counter so much prettier than just any ole vase of flowers.  The canning jars and holder gives such character to my picked garden flowers.



Got this cute chippy wire gathering basket from Jeanine.


Love at first sight!!  I put the linen embroidered towel and lavender sachet from Rita in this basket.  I am sure I will be changing this basket up with lots of cute things.



Another sweet treasure I found at Jeanine's is this sleeping angel in the old enamel pot.  The angel was full of rust but I wanted her to be more a soft white.  So I gave her a little paint re do.



It was too sweet to pass up



I got this awesome potting table from Jeanine too.
Oh my chippy and wonderful to replace the dresser I took from under the picket fence to use in the bathroom for a new vanity.  You can see that post here.




So those are a few of my treasures. 

 I have one big treasure I scored from Jeanine and I will have that in a post soon.  Terry had to make a few adjustments to it so stay tuned to see this fabulous treasure I scored.

Have a great rest of the week.
Thank you always for your visits and taking time to leave a comment.  Makes my day.

Be sure to come back for Spotlight on Saturday I have a great blogger for you to get to know.

  5. Kris, You made me laugh when you said you were junk drunk. LOL. Love that. I am glad you saw some followers. I think the jar holder is wonderful filled with your garden flowers. I like the angel white. I have one like it on my mom's old planter here. The little table is rustic and cute. Hope you are having the same sweet weather we are here in central Indiana. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  8. Oh Kris, DIVINE WHITES! I had a shabby white garage sale one morning and a mother/daughter team drove up first thing in the morning and cleared me out! I had NOTHING LEFT! The chunk 'a change I got from them sent me off on my way that morning just pleased as punch! But now, I'm on the hunt for more chippy whites! I love the hunt and gather cycle! ENJOY! Anita

  22. Kris, you got some great treasures. I envy you that live back there. A lot closer to all the great little towns where all the fun stuff is. You have tweaked my memory. I have a set of pretty vintage drinking glasses in a wire holder that I was going to add flowers to but forgot. Thank you for reminding me. Love the angel in the little pot. Would you believe that I have my first "potty" and it looks just like that only with a red rim. Didn't have an angel in it though!! All that you got fits in so perfectly in your lovely home and looks so pretty..Happy Wednesday..Judy

  23. I love all your treasures - great finds. There are so many wonderful chippy stores there. We have some here, but boy are they expensive. I do better at the Salvation Army.
    Everything looks wonderful as usual. Have a great rest of the week. I'm off to San Jose to visit my son for my Bday. I'm sure he has hired a marching band to celebrate my 80th day. LOL I can count on him doing something unusual.
    Glad that it quit raining.

  25. You found some wonderful treasures, Kris! I especially like that mason jar holder and the wire basket. I doubt that I would have been able to leave the gray cubby behind, at least for the right price. Have fun with your new goodies!

  33. Kris how fun to meet some fellow followers. The sale looked amazing. I loved it when you said that you were "JUNK DRUNK". That is a perfect way to describe the feeling that you get when you are junk'n. Have an amazing day. Jo

  35. Oh My Goodness! I am in junk heaven just looking at the pictures of this fabulous sale! Well worth the drive for sure! I love what you scored! That little angel in the pot is so adorable! Love the potting table where the little dresser used to be and the gathering basket is such a fun piece to decorate with! So glad you found the little Mason jar holder! I found a couple of those years ago at a yard sale for $1 a piece and snatched them up so quickly! Love the way they look with flowers! I would love to find a sale like that in my area! So much fun! Enjoy your new goodies! Hugs, Leena

  40. "Junk drunk", I love that. It perfectly describes the few times I've come across a sale of pretty vintage items. But I would never ever have seen the potential you did in the canning jar holder! You have one great eye!
