SCORE!!!!!




Ahhhh...I love the smell of musty in the morning...old treasures for the not so faint of heart, chipping, fading, wobbling, tattered and torn...welcome to my world and all the crazies that will comment on this heap. We are a bunch in deed...but with the holiday today the antique shop was packed...it was a feeding frenzy at our favorite booths, thank you very much Liz and Mark...you two are the greatest, we can always depend on you for the best trash...and that's a compliment!

I love the aqua chest, just needs a switch in handles and it will be perfect. The parlor table I believe is walnut, but I love it just the way it is, stripped with no finish on it...this dealer says he has more in his warehouse and gave me his number. Cool frames as always, tall demi-lune table and for those of you that have asked what a demi-lune is, it's a half circle table, small moon, lunar. But this one is really cool, it's painted old gold and is unusually tall and is staying as is...no painting. An old clothes drying rack, a sweet,chippy,white rocker, old wooden cheese boxes, wood chair and a strange piece of gate iron...cool stuff aye...


Now the smalls...how about that porcelain cherub, is he not the cutest and tall, an old lamp base perhaps, has a small ding on his foot that's been repaired...and what hasn't, chippier the better.A heavy, green, plaster elephant, cool old books, spoons, porcelain tray with raspberries, silver plate salt n peppers and lots and lots of silk scarves. I am gonna play around with some funky lampshades with these.
So Barb...be prepared...I have scored...let's play switch the furniture...a game we love to play, it hurts but we love it anyway...ha! See ya Friday Barb!

OK!!! I'm really jealous! While you were out gatherin' treasures, I was at home waiting for my car to be fixed-- which I think it is & relatively cheap. Looks like you found great "stuff".

Decided I will just comment here and then brave some more school report writing! (Grrrrrrrrr! My soul mate is hounding me to get moving so I don't have a late night, but it will be late anyways...sighhhhh)

Enjoyed all these treasures! They simply fascinate me in all their glory of shapes and weathered colours! But Ithink I enjoy themmore because of your bubbly explanations! I just love it!

Now to report writing! Must be done before the weekend when I face more packing for the move! Roll on December 15 when we actually fall in a heap in the new home!
