Weekend Finds=New Projects

Our trip to Rogers Market on Friday was pretty much a bust!
Oh phewy, to hot, not many vendors and
the vendors that were there were selling "market junk"
not the good old stuff I was hoping to find!

With sweat literally dripping from my face, I did manage to find a set of old
barn door hinges and four metal fur stretchers.
Fur stretchers you ask, yes, I think I have a plan for them!
We'll see, no I don't trap, LOL...
Spent a whopping $7.00....and
came home about 5# lighter

This weekend was our town wide yard sale days, usually I have a sale at my MIL's
but not this year...

I went sale hopping that's not me
just a toad I found in the yard this morning

still loaded .....  nice old frame, oak childs table with folding legs (love that part)
wool blanket (goodwill find on Thurs) and an old washstand

talked the guy down on the stand, paid $30.00 including the sacks

I am going to turn this little stand into a small step-back cupboard I believe
=====that's where the new project comes in!

other finds
footed oak basket 25 cents
couple wooden bowls to work with
vintage metal canisters....will sell these

Last night it RAINED, yes, yes, yes, finally a pretty good soaking
didn't do much for the rain barrels, I think it evaporated on the hot roof
on contact but everything got a drink!

You know why it rained, because Maygan and I went to Warren for the Ribfest and free Aaron Tippin concert at the park....yep, storm rolled in and we got drenched as we quickly made our way to the car..
but, it felt sooooo good!

Today I leave you with a pretty picture of my funny colored

supposed to be Blue or's almost a combination of both
with a hint of lavender..

Blessings on this good Sunday,
