Oh my goodness, I scored at the estate sales this morning. I rarely go to estate sales but I always have a blast when I do. I try not to "junk up" my house which tends to happen if I go to these sales too often so I go out about twice a year. If anyone is into canning you know these old green Ball canning jars are a find. I also wanted to make apple sauce this year but didn't have a sieve or a mill.
I also have a thing for all things tractor and wrought iron. We are in the process of redecorating tree girls room. We are painting the room powder pink with stripes and all the furniture is black or black wrought iron. She has a thing for skeleton keys, so these were a great find.
I have been following Glenda's blog and have been admiring her embroidery work. I even bought the supplies needed to begin embroidering at Joann's yesterday. When I saw this I wanted it so I can use it for a reference while I learn, also because its a cute little table cloth.
My last find was a lap desk. I will paint this black and put it in Tree girls room. She sits on her bed and does her homework. I always try to get her to do her homework at the table but she won't listen and it's not worth fighting over.
Remember in High school when your classmates elected each other Best Dresses or most likely to succeed? Well, being the goofy women we are my best friend and I were picking out out out "favs". The very used underwear of sale was voted most disgusting.
The Hank Williams, Jr. bobblehead was my personal favorite. We voted him "most likely to be picked up in a tornado at the trailer park and later found in the Walmart parking lot"
