Well–the inevitable (hate it) COLD is upon us, so the green house has been put up again for the season. –Did I mention I hate cold.
↓ You can see the beginnings of re-installing it– ¦’ (
Btw— I GOT that Satanic Red Squirrel —but the very next day, I discovered he had an EVIL TWIN. I GOT HIM TOO. Unfortunately, part of the garage ceiling collapsed under the weight of all the walnuts he stashed up there–so now I have repairs to make.
Before I show you MY fine finds, I wanted to share this one with you again. But I wanted you to see it from another perspective.
The crazy way I so often SEE things myself.
We’ve seen all styles of beds transformed into benches,
I just really liked this example!
Look closely & you’ll see they used an upside down FOOT BOARD!
Sometimes you have to turn things on their head to create beauty!
Anyway—here’s what I found at that last show of the season!
First thing I saw was a trio of music stands. THIS is the style I used as a young flautist! I had to have one of them! $10
Then I hurried into the field to see what a few of my FAVorite dealers brought! I LUV the details of this church pew end. I’m thinking it’s going to become part of a hall tree. $35
**I guess some churches used to sell seats–?? You could ACTUALLY tell someone they were sitting in your seat! ; D
Circling the field, I spied this treasure before it was even put out. I’m pretty sure it held logs beside the fire place—I think it would be fantastic holding some soft throws during winter! $50
A tapestry-fragment, $12
Classic old keys and a vintage lamp finial, $14
Vintage car side mirrors, $5
A vintage dumbell, $10
Finally heading to the other side of the market, I found this deep-beveled vintage mirror. The frame is nice, but it was all about the mirror for me, even with its STRANGE repair. Someone filled the hole with gold, glittery nail polish–huh–?? $10
Finally, I made my way over to find Jeanine– ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! all picked over–boo. But I got this large cabinet finial, $14
With only $4 left in my pocket, I saw this glass pear on one of John’s tables. “How much do you have left, Catherine?” ; )
I saw several MORE things that ALMOST made me go to the ATM. Almost! It can be tough to stick to a budget there!
