Tiny Treasures and a Cool Find

I woke up bright and early to shop! Estate sales, yard sales, garage sales...plenty of them. I didn't find a ton of things...many were way over priced, but I did manage to find a few tiny treasures for my shop, Country Tag Sale, which by the way hit 100 sales this week! Among them:
A tiny jade glass bear

A sweet basset hound

A very pretty and tiny tea cup and saucer (I might keep it 'cause it's so sweet...we'll see).

And last, this cool, industrial all metal rolling cart. I got it for $5...isn't it so vintage cool??? Okay, it's pretty ugly right now, but I plan on staining the top and painting it. Just not sure what color. Any ideas? What color would you paint it?

Oooo, great shopping!!! Love the vintage cart! I'm thinking the color could be a light bluish-green or medium gray! But I'm sure whatever you decide will be perfect!!!

I love that cart!! Very cool! I of course would contemplate aqua or yellow for a paint color ;-)

Some fun finds! Congrats on hitting 100 sales.
I hit one garage sale yesterday and it was a good one. Came home with more stuff than I needed!

Gorgeous little $5 find. I'd go aqua, sunny yellow, or grass green. Whatever you do, it will be pretty!

I like it as is as well, but blue and aqua are my favs.
