50 yrs. of Accumulation






50 yrs. of accumulation, thats what the add said. it was raining this morning and i only wanted to hit one tag sale in the paper. 5o yrs of accumulation, i love those. its where the people were moving and wanted to sell everything cheap. there was a car trailor backed into an old shed and you made him an offer on any of it, anything in the garage. mike first found the old galvinized tubs 1.oo each, i took 6 of them. the old red step stool he said his wife would have to price. as i was walking in the house, which was full of things, i spied the two old metal chairs,

i asked her about them oh, their pretty beat up, .50cents. i swear to you .50 cents each. i could not pay the women fast enough. she wanted 3.oo for the step chair, which i thought was kind of high, but those metal chairs!! the old enamel table she wanted 3.oo for, but the metal chairs!! the enamelware .50 each and the old lids she threw in. i love the old red dish rack. i will use that on the 4th of july for plates and napkins, but the metal chairs!! Its still pouring down rain, i so want to get outside and place those chairs and tubs around. Tomorrow is to be sunny, we have a family reunion in Oklahoma. I really want to stay at home and craft, but the reunion should be fun. my cousin has a ranch-farm and they have planned lots of activities for the kids, mutton races, horse rides, ect? should be muddy and picture worthy!! i will try to post some. well i have been working on some witch stockings today, they are in the oven now. i will try to post them too. chat at you later!

Also, love the laundry room pics too!

What a deal you got! Those chairs were practically a steal! I have some in my yard. I love the step stool! My grandma had a similar one where the seat lifted up and the little ones could sit on the step like a booster seat, just the right height at the table.
What fun finds!
