I AM referring to the lame morning of saling that I had Saturday! Yes, it was my own fault... ~BUT~ it had been SOOO long since this Forty-somethinger had last stumbled in at 3am, that she had forgotten the consequences!! Didn't get out into the hunt until almost 9:30am Saturday morning (2hrs later than usual!!), then the 4H(s) hit.... HANGOVER, HEAT, HUNGER, and HEADACHE!!! Ugh. I did last until noon, but the 'gatherer' in me was just not there. Picked up a couple of things, but not even worth photo-ing... except this cute kitty with the 'boo-boo' paw, rescued from the free pile-o-garbage'!!
After some food, lots of coffee and LOTS of water, I did have a fun-filled afternoon with DH though doing a little 'site-seeing in our backyard'...
Luckily Friday was full of garaging goodness, so it more than made up for 'day off' on Saturday!!
Skaneateles dip chiller ($1);Sun Tile Trivet by Bennington pottery ($2); Old chalkware bunny wallhangers (10¢/pr); McCoy 2 qt mixing bowl and Vino Carafe ($1 ea);some more wire shelf organizers (50¢); fun retro recipe metal recipe box (10¢); Snoopy figure (.10¢); 2 vintage cocktail glasses (10¢); Finland Plate and an old cork board to try my hand at 'upholstering' (50¢)
Isn't it odd how you can go months, even entire seasons, without finding something - then all of a sudden in a 'wave', you find multiple pieces?! Well, the 'wave' came crashing in on Friday with MacKenzie-Childs!! I found these two pieces at two different sales! I found my conversation with seller at one sale rather amusing... She had two different pieces. The first that I picked up was just a stray 'cover/lid' (no bottom). "How much?" ... "Oh, that's a MacKenzie Childs - VERY nice piece! They make Great stuff! That's $10. Do you know how much they sell for new?!" ... Okay, I passed on that, but as she was speaking I noticed another, NICER, complete piece (heart shaped) that was in one of their retired patterns, but not as clearly marked (older/fainter impressed stamp on bottom) "How much is this?"..."That thing? A dollar?"... Done deal!!
M-C square bowl ($12); M-C heart ($1); Laurel Burch bag (50¢); William-Sonoma tablecloth ($1.50)
A sweet, 'unusual' Sweater Clip ($1)!!!
Now, I'm off to the garden... and then get ready for a family picnic we are attending this afternoon!
When my parents were out last week, my Dad brought a few of his creations - these three iron supports that I had 'wished for' during their previous visit. PERFECT for the Japanese tea light lanterns that I have randomly been picking up all summer!!
HAPPY DAY Everyone!
