Hello, Prim Pals.....I told one of
my buddies that I would post all
the great stuff I bought over the
last couple weekends, so here goes.
All the items in the first picture were
bought in antique malls, except for
the 4 things in the back of the picture,
they were found at a GW store. The
wooden bowl has a winter scene, which
I am going to paint over. I want my
hubby to make me a bowl rack, so I
should have plenty to put in it by the
time he makes it. I got the cute little
pineapple lamp for $2.99, plus the
shade was $1.99.....The magazine rack
on the right side of the picture was a
steal, at $1, I am going to paint it black
and hang it on the wall in the bath, below
the cabinet full of tins. The candle stick,
next to it has a wonderul design on it, it's
not pewter, but looks like it is....
I got all the stuff in the picture, below at
one garage sale, except for the bread box!
The milking stool has a handle on it and it
was made in Yugoslavia, and has a nice
finish on it.
A close up pic of some of the tins, above.
You can see that I got them all cheap!
I couldn't find a date on this Nabisco
tin, but I think it is very old.
I found this cookie keeper, weekend
before last, at a fleamarket....I am going
to paint it, what color, I don't know...
I also got these at the same fleamarket...
I have a spoon rack for some of the spoons,
I didn't want only 2 or 3 of them and he said
take them all for $2....So, I did. I am going
to make a shoo fly screen out of the strainer
and I put the pitcher with the bluebonnets,
on the shelf above the french doors. I will
have to show you all a picture of that later
on. I decided that this is it for the summer
for hitting the antique malls, it is too hot in
them, this time of year. I might go to the
little fleamarket, a couple times, but that
will be all....Can you have too much stuff???
Yes, you can, I have proof! I don't go
gamble, bowling, play bingo or anything
like that, I like to go hunting for treasures!
I figure that I have something for my money
and I can sell it somewhere down the road,
if I get tired of dusting it! That's my story,
and I am sticking to it!
Well, I need to figure out what I am going
to do with all this stuff, so that is it for
today.....I hope you all are staying cool!
Until next time....
