SCORE...BOOTY...





Had a friend call me today that does tag sales, she had a house that she has been emptying out off and on for two years, an old man lived there, who used to bring everything home from yard sales when the people didn't want it anymore...so you can imagine the piles. He also had an orchard back in the day, so the yard was filled with tools of all kinds, buckets and wheelbarrows and ol'timey garden tillers, rakes hoes, every tool imaginable. I have never seen so many scales before...you name it and it was there and this is after all the good stuff was hauled to auction. Pam and I crawled through coon poo and rotten boxes finding treasures all along the way. So here are the shots of the booty for the day...let the cleaning begin...YUCK...coon poo...AND TICKS...eeeeeeeeee

With the exception of the coon poo and ticks....what a friggin' score!

I've always loved those type of sling back chairs...so surprisingly comfortable.

Is it weird that I'm drooling over the roll of rusty...what is that...edging?? Whatever it is, my imagination is going nuts with projects.

Man-oh-man I love little old men that packrat.
