Hubby took me yard saleing and antiquing today as my Mothers day present....and oohhhh what a wonderful present it was.I yelled stop!..yard sale so many times and he pulled right over ....even had a smile on his one point I the thought the smile was because he knew if he acted quickly he could just drive away without me...)......I found alot of neat are a few pictures.There would be more but by the time i got into the house to let the dog out ,he had already put them in the garage.Im sure before weeks end i will be in there to take more pictures.......I love the old Trunk/suitcase.It even has a old cruise ship decal on it.The ols picnic basket is a Christmas present for a friend who collects baskets and the oak chair is so nice..I even bought a old feedsack to re-do the seat part...all in all a great day.

re purposing fun!

I bought this dr,s office screen at a estate sale this week and didn't like the white plastic sterile looking inserts,so i got the idea to re do them with burlap.....i like!This will be a great back drop for etsy listings and then for the antique show i do in September.

You never know........

Shopping at the new the pound...i came across this old ugly material quilt.As i was looking it over i could tell that inside of it had to be another quilt..not just cotton batting..So i bought the quilt,took it home and YES! under the old ugly vintage material was this great feed sack quilt.A few small area,s need some TLC..but gosh..what hundred year old quilt doesn't?
