staycation

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…
