Kicking myself

This past weekend my mom and I hit up some estate sales.  I scored loads of goodies (which I have to take pictures and post), but there are a few items that I'm kicking myself for not scoping up!!  Can you guess what items I didn't buy?

If you didn't already guess, the answers are gold flatware and a set of black chinoiserie chairs.  The gold flatware was actually gold vermeil, but who cares.  It was a steal for a 5-piece setting for 12 people WITH a serving set!  The chairs look more like the armless chairs shown with the dining set, but they would have looked good flanking a console table in an entry.  Oh well....I will always find more things I don't need.  I plan on going estate-saling (yes, i used it as a verb) this weekend too.  :-)  

Hope everyone has a great weekend!


  1. Your finds sound amazing! I've been looking for a good set of gold flatware for forever!

  2. I would love some gold flatware too. I have never been to an estate sale. I am going to have to find a few to attend.

    I am having a giveaway on my blog, hope you will stop by and enter. Sunny Days and Starry Nights

  3. Metal box, perhaps is magic Pandora's Box! It is equipped with all of

    your little secret and pink memories. What of the cross and totem
