She was taking a short rest while we decided where to eat our very late lunch.
We had been on a Low Country Crawl through several thrift shops.
We started at nine in the morning.
It was after three, and we were waiting for an estate sale to start at four.
We had already scored the ugliest piece of furniture either of us had ever seen.
If you were the one who created this...this...this...
thing, then you need to learn restraint.
Yes, under all that fabric I do think there might be a bit of beauty.
We shall see.
Since our planned restaurant was not open, we settled on Montreux Bar & Grill.
Leia had been there.
I had not, but hope to go again.
The atmosphere is great.
And the food delicious.
Leia had a smoked shredded chicken sandwich with jalapeno mayo.
I had the salmon/strawberry salad.
Here is the front of the grill.
See the lady hiding behind the tree?
She was in every shot I took - before and after eating.
It became a joke of where she would show up next.
Montreaux is filled with artwork.
There is an old bicycle hanging over the bar.
I did take a pic of it.
That lady walked right through the shot and sat down.
I had planned to abandon some journal tags for this week's art abandonment.
Our waitress had a nice quirky attitude,
and I felt the "It's good to be the queen" tags would suit her perfectly.
I abandoned the tags in the chair next to me so she would find them when she cleared the table.
Now it was time to go find the estate sale.
I was surprised at the quality of the items even though it was the second night of the sale.
I bought the huge Mark Twain Compilation.
The basket of silver - mainly for the assortment of fish and pickle forks.
And one baby spoon.
The sales manager threw in the plastic silverware hiding in the back.
Well, it will come in handy stirring small batches of paint.
The largest glove mold I have seen.
Size 14 - used to mold men's heavy duty industrial gloves.
I have been looking for a dainty ladies mold, but had to have this giant.
It looks great on the mantel with the heads already there.
I also bought a wooden ladder and some advertising yardsticks.
I will show these and all the other items we found along the way on our Low Country Crawl in the next post.
It took all day to unload the truck and take photos.
I am off to bed so I can rise bright and early to clean, sand and paint.
Does anyone know how to remove ugly from a piece?
