Coronado Garage sale

Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday 
It has been a busy
 fun filled power packed summer already
so much to share with all of you 
As you can see there have been a few changes here at 
White Ironstone Cottage
You will not believe where we found this amazing vintage 
zinc top table
that now sits in our dining room
We were recently invited to a preview dinner at the new
 Bluewater Boathouse in Coronado
 the restaurant is right across the street from the famous
 Hotel Del Coronado
it is a beautiful red roof building that sits right on the water
 and used to be the old Chart house restaurant years ago
Handsome husband worked at that Chart house for many years
{we had our first kiss on the top of the look out tower}
The  new owners of the Bluewater Boathouse did an extensive and beautiful remodel
 and decided to have a garage sale to let go of some of the old furniture 
There were chart house map tables for sale as well as wood captains chairs for 10 dollars
 white restaurant dishware a dollar each piece
so many amazing treasures and bargains

Here is Jimmy one of the new owners 
with a vintage lavabo
{great for plants}
 my eye kept going to this white zinc top table 

Grateful the table fit here in our dining room 
the way the zinc top enhances the gray paint on the walls

You never know what you 
will find at a garage sale
this beautiful treasure we all cherish
 it is filled with wonderful memories old and new
Hope you have been having fun this summer too

joining in the fun for Feathered Nest Friday

romantic saying for today

"It all began with a kiss"



  1. That table is to die for. I have got to get you the names of my friends' son and daughter-in-law. Lindsay and Rory Brown. He is an architect and she is a realtor in Coronado. They flip houses and are currently remodeling a new home for themselves.

  2. I LOVE the table!! And what a sweet story about you and your husband! :)
