yard sale treasures!

Chris took Friday off to, well, spend some time together!  He has been working really hard and there has been so much going on that he just felt it would be nice to have a 4 day weekend.  Yes he is off today for Columbus day as well.  Our morning started off watching the beautiful sunrise I showed here and cups of coffee from Starbucks after the boys had gone to school.  After running a few errands and doing a few chores he agreed to go to a few yard sales with me... Well let me tell you I was in HEAVEN!  I love the thrill of a good yard/estate/garage/tag sale!!  The exchange of stories, hidden treasures, wondering whatever possessed them to even consider selling let alone buying things in the first place.  Well you have got to see what I walked away with..... okay I will have to admit I spent FAR more than I would have ever considered in spending in the past but talk about some deals thrown in for free as well.  So all in all it was a great find!

A beautiful trunk with tray, a full size cast metal bed original castors and railings, the beautiful picnic basket, 

various old glass bottles (milk of magnesa, mrs butterworth, etc), 1950's refrigerator tray, pottery, and this gorgeous chair. 

details on the lovely bed
viney leaves

and mushrooms.

I can hardly wait to start working on them.  Yes the bed is going to be striped as well as the chair.  Everything else will just get a good cleaning before we put them to use!
