This morning was beautiful. It started off at a wonderful 50 degrees and continued to warm all the
way to 65. So, after taking the dog for the morning ritual of potty and
eating, I decided to go back to the estate sale. Just to see what was
left. Glad I did, I crawled in to the attic cobby and came out with an old mahogany chair, the leg had popped off, but it was doweled
, so no pic right now, I had to replace one dowel and it is now drying
after gluing. I was able to find another Italian print, this one is one
everyone knows," The Blue Boy". Also in one of the upstairs bedroom
closets, I found an old bake-e-lite vanity mirror, light up! Well this
week, I will be heading to our local lighting store for bulbs. Hope
they still make them. A punch bowl with 12 cups, and an Italian shelf finished out the estate sale. Almost forgot, a box of new candles in taupe, 12 of them for a dollar.
the way home I stopped at a thrift store and found, "Mary". She stands
over 12 inches high, is Italian made. Marked, made of plaster, and her
paint looks really good, just a few, and I mean a few chips.
I headed to the noon moving sale. The heavens opened up, and it poured,
could not see in front of you. Well, I get to the sale at 11, because I
was not going home and back again. Can you believe there was a line of
people waiting in the pouring down rain? I stayed in my car and went to
sleep. At 12 the people opened the garage. Yes, the garage, and they
were selling a few pieces of Bombay furniture! I went home, the nap did
me good. I had better put some nice pillows in my car for the next sale.
That sale happens to be Sunday. Another Estate sale, this time closer to home. Will keep you posted.
