I love staycations! I spent the last 3 days shopping, antiquing, junking, painting, crafting & gardening. The exterior of our house is full on Christmas now while the inside is still celebrating Thanksgiving. I also managed to find some Christmas gifts. Geez, I’m exhausted come to think of it!
Now onto the treasures…
I made it to several estate sales, an antique mall, junk shop, a flea market and an auction. So here are the highlights. I will spare you the shiny brites (there were many) and glass bottles (only a few).
A coveted petite aqua fan…
A pile of crusty, rusty funnels and a hose head – all with great patina and even a few graphics! I have a future project lined up for these.
A little old US postal scale.
Two sets of old hooks with a great green base. These came out of an old gas station. They were used for hanging hoses and things. I am thinking they would look pretty in a bathroom or mudroom.
A vintage Christmas tea towel.
Ok I have a problem. I bought another retro cooler. This one is aluminum. Why? Why?
You think that is bad. Wait until you see what I am hoarding inside the cooler. More enamelware. I can’t stop. I need to. I have a problem. That is the first step though right? Admitting I have a problem.
A cute old cupcake pan.
And some architectural salvage. A chippy board, another frame and a huge spindle…all purchased with projects in mind.
That’s all folks…
