I hit the JACKPOT!
OH MY GOODNESS - well, I wish I could just tell ya how excited I got when I hit the jackpot on Saturday afternoon. My friend, Pat, from church called and said there was a man trying to clean out the shed behind the house next to her. She said she thought there might be some things in there I would like to plant flowers in and she thought I should come by and have a look. I told her I appreciated her thinking of me and would stop by Saturday after I closed the shop. So mid afternoon Sat. I took a lil' road trip not knowing where I was going but I found it with no problem. The gentleman was there waiting on me and so I stepped inside expecting to find some neat enamelware to plant up with mums and ornamental cabbage, and when I walked in I was like - WOW - red chairs, pink chairs, green tables, blue bed, pretty dishes - well, I jus' 'bout jumped out of my pants. My hubby says he has never seen anybody get as excited over "junk" as I do. Well, he just doesn't see the potential like we ladies do, right? So here are a few pictures of my finds. He reasonably priced me these things, so I'll be redoing some pieces for the shop and some are perfect jus' the way they are. I'll show you before and after pictures as I get them ready!
Love my aqua lawn chair, my quilt top and those lamps. I'll make some pretty shades, maybe red and white check for those gold lamps - so french country.
What about that beautiful shade of green on that sewing cabinet - still with the "SINGER" machine inside - this is one of my favorite finds.
A pretty blue bed that my sweet Papaw will make into a beautiful bench. Can't wait to see what that one turns out like!!! Might have to keep it!
What a pretty cane back chair - perfect condition! I'll probably just cover the seat in a sweet pattern.
Another picture of all my goodies - Enamelware, frames, dishes, wood to paint on, going to turn those yellow chairs into a bench, I gotta a drop leaf table to that is not in the picture along with many pretty platters and bowls. Oh, I must stop - my mind is in overload. I'll keep ya posted on my progress.
Everybody have a great start to your week!
