Today's FUNky finds...

The budget is tight these days. Luckily I can usually scrounge up a few dollars under the sofa cushions.If i'm lucky I can find some sweet little deals while out antiquing that don't break the bank. It takes time and lots of scouring, but if you have a color scheme in mind and a general idea of what your theme is, I think you can shop for your home on any budget.

Here's what todays' scavenging unearthed, in the depths of shelves burried in junk at the antique mall...

My favorite find was this little white porcelean hand. I can find a million uses for this unique curosity!

I think I had a little too much fun posing it! Haha



I also got a few more pieces of vintage looking flatware and a reeeally old little framed drawing matted in the most interesting shape.





That is all. Nothing big or dramatic today. Stay warm!

Love the hand, I collect hands and have one similar yours. I believe they were ashtrays. Love the buttons in them rather than ashes! Laura

It appears that it was an ashtray before but much better use of it now. Love the hand and the buttons.

I like all of your unique finds! Isn't antiquing the most fun? I think it's the thrill of the hunt that makes it that way. Thanks for visiting me too!

I think you're having a little too much fun with the hand. Very cute. Wonder what it was originally used for. Great finds!

Finding treasures on a budget is the best! The thriftier the better!! VEry cute finds, I was on a hand kick at one time but all mine were the ones that stand up for rings, bracelets, etc. You did good!

What lovely finds, I really love the hand (mom has one but I have yet to find one for myself yet).

Girl, you have a good eye, or nose, or whatever it takes to find good stuff! LOVE the hand. A dear friend had a collection of hands - she's gone now, and I have one to remember her by. I'm also attracted to hands - for the symbolism and the decorative quality of them. Nice finds!
