Spring Rearranging

I ran up to my craft booth yesterday and had been looking at this sale for awhile. It was $12.50 and hadn't wanted to pay that, but it just kept calling my name. You ever had that happen? I'd look in a magazine and there would be a picture spread of a whole collection of scales on an old cabniet! Or a pic of a scale on a stove board. Every once in awhile I'd just think of that darn scale, so I thought what the heck and I just went up and brought it home! I do love it, it's very slim line.
I also found this great old lantern for $5 and of course the enamel pan for $2. The other day when I was in there a new lady was moving in with her new wares and I spied this pan and thought I need to go back and take a look at her stuff!!

I did some rearranging on my newly covered porch a few weeks ago. I had this sink and cabinet on my screened in back porch because I didn't want the cabinet getting wet, but now with my covered porch I drug it out here. I love it here. Everyone uses this patio door as our entrance so it will be greatly seen. Note my new lantern!

This is a view from the other side of the patio door. I brought my chalkboard from around the back porch too. Brought up an old green metal chair . Now I only need the Sanford and Son theme song playing!!! My dad says it's beginning to look like a junk yard around here.

A few gardening tools hanging out in an enamel pan.

And yesterday only because the sun came out for awhile. I drug this table out of the entryway and put a coat of good old black paint on it. Scuffed it up and added the things back on it. It really looks good because I have a black table and chairs and a black pie safe in there also. Well the hubby took today off to have about 5 loads of chipped up asphalt delivered for the circle drive. Now he will get to play with his little red tractor again today! Taylor and I leave for San Antonio TX. tomorrow evening. A chartered bus band trip, about 75 of us. Yippee! It is suppose to be 75 degrees there compared to 45-50 here. I'll take it!

So many things to look at. So many things I love. Scales are a favorite of mine and I think you got a beauty there girl. What I wouldn't give to have that sink in my home. Is it functional or is it just for looks?
Have fun on your trip. Stay safe and enjoy yourself.

Love it all! I have one scale, but I'm on the search for more. I just wish I had enough guts to go all out on my porch like you have. I see some of the same stuff when I'm out searching, and think aww, I don't have anywhere for that. Then I come to blogs like yours and it clicks, should have bought that piece! :( Oh well, I'm still learning!!!! Do you have any online places that you recommend for good buys?

Enjoy your trip!
