I hope your weekend was a good one.
The last week it has been super humid here. I don't mind the heat, as long as I don't have to feel like am walking around with a wet blanket on me.
I can't believe this is the middle of August and I haven't even been swimming. I remember when we were young, we swam every day, all day long. A bunch of fish we were. :)
and now to get back on track..... I wanted to show you a few goodies that I found over the weekend.
The metal goods......
The hay bale hook I found Thursday at a yard sale. The older gentlemen having the yard sale was amazed that I knew what it was. ( hey, I am old.lol) cost $1.00
Now what am i going to do with it?
The dried corn holder was found Thursday too. I seen one in Country Sampler( I think the new issue) with dried corn stuck on the prongs for Fall. cost $1.00
The old oil can (I think thats what it is) was found Saturday while at a collectibles store in Buffalo , Ohio.
more goodies here........
Saturday before going to the store in Buffalo; my mom, sister Karla, and I went to a few yard sales.
cutting board( which I want to paint) $1.00
candle holder 50cents
vintage linens 50 cents
vintage P&G napitha soap $1.00/bar
soap dispenser 50 cents( I already have my dish soap in it). :)
Now, I am not a die hard Longaberger Basket fan. Why?
Because I think they are overrated.
Somewhere down the line they lost the historical signifigance and artistry of handmade baskets.
Have you ever made a basket? If so, you know the work and warmth that goes in to creating from your hands without a mold or a nail gun.( okay , I need to step down from my box now.)
I was yard saling solo on Friday morning and found these two baskets. The girl having the sale was young, way young(maybe 18-20). I asked her the price on these ... she said I could have them both for $2.00. I paid her and stashed them in the car before looking at anything else.
Maybe I will use them as gift baskets, or maybe just to store things in.
I didn't have a problem paying $2.00 for them.
Last, but not least..........
old school desk...........................$3.00
What should I clean it with, anyone know?
Should I apply a sealer or something?
