Once again Connie and I headed out this morning. Connie drove this time, and we had a blast. I found the usual
treasures of linens, fur, beaded bags, and two lady head vases. I also found a single server
coffee pot from Starbucks. My daughter is going to love it!! Also a
cool find of the day is a sugar, flour, tea, and coffee canister set in
tin. Kinda reminds me of the Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters movie. Think his name was StayPuff??
Well, anyway, I am using it for coffee filters, teabags, and sweet'n'low.
Connie bought this really nice old dresser, and she wanted to go back
today to pick it up. Well, that too is a story for her to tell. But,
pulling out of the driveway where she bought the dresser was two large paper bags
filled with old glass bottles (all sizes), a little sad wooden shelf,
and a wooden decorative butter churn, handle missing. I grabbed them.
Oh no! More projects.
I spray painted the butter churn and shelf
white. I added an old glass bottle lid for a handle. Now it is a trash
can in the powder room. DOGPROFFFFFFF!!!!!
The little shelf got
lined with a pretty wrapping paper. I added old vintage white Ponds
(face cream jars) jars from the trash, and a few porcelain roses found
a couple of yard sales ago. You know, some of my best treasures come
out of others trash. Powder room is now finished.
