My Weekend Finds
My garage saling buddy Nancy and I went to a subdivision sale this past weekend. We must have gone to about 30 sales, but it was the very last one where I got all of my goodies this week!
Aren't little old lady sales the best? I had been hoping to find a cheap lounger for the back porch, to read a book or take a nap. I was thrilled to find this old one, with yards and yards of vintage barkcloth covering the cushion. I can't decide whether to leave it green or paint it white.
I love this old metal plant holder. It's almost as tall as me! Which isn't saying much. It'll get painted white, probably before the day is done.
I've always wanted one of these pretty metal shelves. Unfortunately, my daughter likes it too. And wants to paint it black. She's moving into her first apartment, and has "shopped" our attic for things she can use too. I'm thinking I need to hide my finds until she's all moved in!
Love this old plant holder too. Can't decide whether to paint it or leave it. I kinda like the original green color. I guess I don't have to paint everything that comes my way, do I?
A teeny tiny vase.
Something to replace those dead flowers on the patio table!
I think this old plant holder might be my favorite find this week. It'll hang in the dining room, but first guess what I have to do. I have to decide what color to paint the clay pot that will go in there!
Rest assured, Mary will not be getting painted! I had hoped to find one this summer, and there she was, waiting for me at the little old lady sale. So, what did you find this weekend?
