Recent Junking Finds

Pin It

It's been a long time since I've posted goodies that I've found out and about on a junking adventure. These pieces are from a while back, but I knew you would like to see them!

This great baby bottle sterilizer with original glass bottles was a super fun find. My plan was to add some flowers and use it as a centerpiece. Wouldn't that have been great? Yes, it would have, but it has already found a new home with a friend of mine.

While that friend bought the baby bottle thing from me, I had recently purchased this antique chamber pot from her. Won't this be a great place to store additional toilet paper?

I love the curvaceous lines of this piece and the patina on the handle...

Bzzzzzzzz! Bzzzzzzz! I love the textures and patterns on these two bee nests. I have a project coming up that involves these two bad boys...

My favorite piece is this antique brass shoe mirror. I've been looking for one of these for a long, long time. To find it in solid brass (super heavy!) is the icing on the cake!!

If you look closely, those of you who have been reading my blog for a while might notice something different in the photos above. It's one more project that is underway here at WhisperWood Cottage.

Do you see what I am talking about?


  1. Amy! Beautiful finds! Love your new look! ~lulu

  2. Love you finds. I love that mirror! Can't wait to see what you do with it. And, what a lucky friend you have to now have that awesome bottle sterilizer. That thing is really neat.

    I posted a few of my latest finds yesterday. I got to spend a little time at the Nashville Flea Market this past weekend.

  3. Oh, the baby bottles and holder are so cool. I do remember glass bottles with the black lids! Lezlee

  4. I use my chamber pot (a family heirloom LOL!) as a trash can in my bathroom.

  5. What a good eye you have.... great finds!

  6. oooh amy,
    such awesome finds! love that galvanized baby bottle sterilizer...of course anything galvanized metal makes my heart skip a beat! i see a corner cupboard in the mirror...could that be what you're hinting at??? or is it the ceiling??? do tell!
    judi ;)

  7. What wonderful finds! I love the chamber pot for toilet paper I just hope it gets a good cleaning first, lol!

  8. Great finds!! Love the baby bottle holder. I would have had a hard time parting with that one. But the chamber pot is very cool too!
    I see a dresser that the drawer looks like it needs that what you are talking about?

  9. Love, love, love the mirror! What a great idea to use the chamber pot as a toliet paper holder.

  10. Hello
    Love the whole look of your blog and the stuff you scored! The mirror is just great. have a wonderful week.

  11. Y'all call 'em vintage...I call it what I raised my kids with! LOL!!!
    I spy something different...did it misbehave and need a time out?

  12. Good finds! Can't wait to see these things pop up in your vignettes. And hmm, no, you'd have to give me a better clue, there didn't seem to be any DIY going on in those pics.

  13. Beautiful finds! I can't believe you let that bottle stand go... the pot was a cute trade though! You have inspired me to go fossicking in the thrift shops this week.. its been ages.
    Flick :)

  14. Great finds! This is my first visit to your pretty blog - I love your statement "When life whispers do you listen" It really spoke to me. Looking forward to reading more.

  15. If I'd only had the insight to save my girls baby bottles and sterilzer!! Love your finds. Your ceiling is beautiful - don't know if that is your project. The bird's nests are great, I too love the texture.

  16. Look forward to seeing what you do with those bees' nests. They are so great!

  17. Took me a few minutes to figure out what a "shoe mirror" was and then it hit me! Very, very cool! :)

  18. Great finds! love the bottle rack!

  19. Those are wonderful finds! Well, I'm not quite there with you on the bee's nests, but they look cool. :)

  20. That shoe shine mirror is gorgeous - now I'm going to be on the lookout for one. I think DD1 would love owning one.



Life whispers...what is it saying today?
