Why my Friday Finds, of course!
I went to the first annual 421 Yard Sale event - ten miles long.
Came home with treasures.
The organizers deserve a big pat on the back for starting this.
It is sure to grow.
A nice section of wrought iron.
A trellis in the making.
A section of wrought iron railing.
I would also use this as a trellis.
Both are going to the booth as soon as they are cleaned.
A rusty crown - probably a quickie project.
Copper squirrel mold.
Aluminum measuring cup.
Ceramic door knob.
Brass hose nozzle.
Two baskets - definitely a quickie project.
If you have been reading my Quickies posts, you already know what will happen to the brass one.
I love to find the Italian tole plaques - this one a brilliant blue.
Could not pass by the framed cherub on pink velvet.
The cherub needs work.
The plaque is in the booth.
A ladder I will probably paint.
I am stripping the wiring from this chandelier to make a candelabra.
The glass shades came with it.
Maybe I'll use them.
A covered vegetable bowl and a small platter.
The pattern is pink roses with green leaves surrounded by black and gold.
Delicate and delicious pattern.
Going on Etsy.
A round plate, two salad bowls, and five dessert bowls.
Brown on cream.
Going on Etsy.
Three quilts in 30's or 40's prints - probably flour sacks.
Still vibrant colors.
Throw one at a time into the dryer with a soaking wet towel until the towel is dry. My method - only a suggestion!
I bought a fourth quilt.
Another shopper asked why when it was in deplorable condition.
Made of heavy weight denim and twill - most likely from work clothes.
The back is made of 100 pound flour sacks!
But sometimes treasures are hidden.
At least one, if not two, quilts inside!
Hoping I can salvage pieces because it will not hold together for a thorough cleaning.
I will let you know if I am successful.
Next week Olive Out and I are headed to Madison, GA, for a junkin' trip.
If you are in the neighborhood, come join us!
