Three truckloads before noon last Saturday.
I had to go home to dump the treasures before heading back out.
I will not bore you with all - just some.
A boxful of baby shoes - well-loved.
Buttons, buttons, buttons followed by spools, spools, spools.
About ten floral frogs in different sizes.
A weaving loom from the 60's.
A pair of heavy duty end tables with barley twist legs.
The tops are ugly - water damage.
A very large tub I plan to use as a planter.
A MCM* dresser which is now in the middle of a major makeover.
I love the chair frame just as it sits.
The small Corsican-style table with beautiful spooled legs and ...
... beautiful burled top.
Unfortunately there is damage to the finish on the legs.
I am only touching the legs - NOT the top.
I have a whole post to write about this primitive beauty.
Handmade with a lot of love.
It was getting late and it was SUNNY so the pictures go downhill from here.
The Sirocco framed young girl.
There's a small bench behind her.
A shelf unit.
And a mirror.
I know, I know - you cannot see them!
A lovely group of white shutters.
A wire blue plant stand.
An ornate gold frame.
Look, Farragoz fellow students, a whole jar of homemade gesso.
Not like ours, but similar.
I found it at the bottom of a box. It is a wonder it did not break and ruin everything. I got it free because no one at the estate sale knew what gesso was.
In the DON'T TELL CHUCKS section of this week's Friday Finds:
I went to Tractor Supply for a bag of dog food, but who can get out of that place without buying more?
On the sale rack was this toolbox planter and the galvanized holder.
Yes, I know I am culling the herd of my vintage toolboxes, but this is perfect for my new porch look.
I also picked up two crib mattresses.
A quick tutorial:
1. Grab mattress.
2. Strip the mattress of all padding.
3. Use springs for displays!
