Saturday Morning Treasures



Hi ladies, the hubby and I hit the neighboring town of Caney and found these goodies this morning. We actually woke up to thunder and rain so we got a late start. The old bicycle was worth the trip. He wanted $25.00, now to know my husband! He will never pay full price for anything. And me,well I don't often haggel with anyones price. So I tell Mike I would pay $15.00 for the bike so Mike offers $10.00. The guy says, take it home!! I placed it by the playhouse for now. The old water cooler and galvanized tub, along with two brand new wooden cutting boards I paid $ 1.50 for all 4 items. I had been looking for a couple old metal chairs to paint on. i had seen two at a sale today but we didnt go back. I get home this morning and these two old chairs are sitting on my deck. I still dont know who they are from? Could be a girl from work. I will find out Monday. I want to paint on them! The second photo is of the two cutting boards. I will post what I have done with them later. The small old galvanized pan came from my neighbors rummage sale today. We stopped by a flea market on the way home and I found the two old tins. the two bottles, I want to make labels for. the old crock I pd. .25 cents, and the 10 zinc lids I pd. $5.00. All in all it was a great day! Then my cousin Towanna came over to show her friend my shutters in my living rm. and I showed her my witch hat on the spring. She mentioned she had an old scrap pile at her house with an old mattress spring in it to be hauled away. I made a bee line out there and salvaged 8 springs!! She will call me sometimes to look through her burn pile. Its so true, one womens junk is another womens treasure!!!!! Well tomorrow I want to chalk board paint something i bought at a tag sale.. I will try to post that too. I am at or almost at 50 post. Another 50 and I will have to have my first giveaway!! You ladies have a great Sunday tomorrow!
