Old Out Buildings

These days I find myself loving all old outbuildings, I look at there structures and admire how they have aged. I wish I was able to have them all and just furnish them with very primitive furniture. How do all of you feel when you come across a old structure? Hugs Mary

LOVE THIS RECYCLE VINTAGE CANS AND DOLL HEAD PARTS


I am just loving this, I have always said it pays to collect, just see what this very creative person did...........I love looking at this photo to see if I have any of these vintage cans. I have been collecting vintage tins for over 30 years, it started out as spice tins when I asked my Grandma for some that belonged to my Great Grandma............that got me going. To this day I am always on the look out for them. Have a good day everyone in blog land and let me say I am sorry that I have not been buy to pay a visit to all of you. The weather here has kept me real busy in the yard..............it is going to cool down after today. HUGS MARY

I had the shop open today and people were real grummpy................the heat brings the meaness out in people. I must of drank a dozen crystal lights.....................We offered cold water and juice to our customers and it did seem to make a few happy. Have a wonderful Sunday. HUGS MARY

VINTAGE BEDS


We seem to be at the right place at the right time. We have been able to acquire vintage beds with out even looking for them. These two twin cuties were to hard to resist. The elderly lady I got these from said they were 100 years old. I purchased them both for $40.00. I almost felt guilty. I think these gems would look good in a spare bedroom.............I can see them with matching frilly lace bed skirts and beautifull quilts...............................I am really going to have to think about this, I am also tempted to see if they would look good as a full bed.........IDEAS......................what is your thought. Have a great week. HUGS MARY

LAST ONE AT A GARAGE SALE


Hubby and I just closed up our shop and decided to go get a quick bite to eat after picking  up the signs from haveing our shop open. We thought we would stop at one garage sale on the way home and boy was it fun. Ww got out of the car and saw they were putting things away, we asked if they wanted us to go and they said we will give away a box full for $5.00 each...................so my husband got a box and so did I............boy what a box full of iron stone dishes I got...............I also got his wonderful old trunk for $5.00, it is a small one and I thought I would put it on my deck next a big wicker chair.......and my favorite item is this lovely old iron bed., sorry my photo's do not show the flowers on the frame..........................it has the original finish and  we just happen to have the bed rail at home already...................
some times it pays to be last.............this bed cost us on $25.00...........who gets a antique iton bed at this price and this cool of condition? Hope your weekend was a fun one. HUGS MARY
