Next I found this white headboard for $5. It is not old but it will be perfect in my flower garden. With all the rain and humidity in Minnesota I don't have the heart to use a vintage headboard...it would be a heap of rust in a year or two so this will be perfect and I don't have to care if it gets rusted, it could stand a little aging.
The last thing I found was this small straw bag for a quarter. It's a little squished and I'm sure it's not old. I stuffed it with paper and I'll try to steam it into shape. I think I'll add some wool applique flowers or maybe crochet flowers. Wouldn't it look good hanging on a door knob? For the photo the donkeys ear will do.
Isn't it just too much fun to find stuff that we can remake into something else? I try not to buy anything unless I have an idea for it. The trunk...well...that was too good to pass. The top is a little warped but it still makes a great piece out on the patio.
Thanks for stopping by!

I have one more pretty batch that I found last week...
I'll post them another day...
I'm heading south! Getting out of this snow, Minnesota has seen the most snow and cold in 100 years....it's hard to read about nearly everyone else seeing the spring bulbs blooming and hearing the birds sing while we are still in winter.
I'm on my way to Arizona and I'm driving, just me and my cat. 'Mr. Wild' has to stay home!
I'll be gone a few weeks...
There are lots of yard sales where I'll be and I plan to hit each one. I hope to find some cool things to show you.
