We went to Traders Market Saturday morning, I wasn't really looking for anything in particular but just something fun to do and I love being surrounded by all that good old
I've been keeping an eye open for a big white old door for a few years but it HAD to have a large beveled oval glass window and carving. I never even had it in mind that day and I walked right past it because of the way it was displayed.
When I turned around...there it was!
Terrible picture but it won't stop raining here and the sun seems to have completely abandoned us so it's the best I could get. Right now it's on the porch under the roof to protect is from all the wet weather until I can find a good spot inside.
This door is heavy, I cannot move it alone, it's solid wood with a very thick beveled glass window and it has beautiful carved designs.
It will go in our Wyoming home (when we build it) I'm hoping to use it on a closet door or even just leaning against a wall.
It's just too cool...I am soooo excited over this door!
The thing we were looking for, another shell back chair and we found one!
Mr. Wild sand blasts and paints so he will make her all pretty again...probably white.
I couldn't walk away from the old bird feeder. The man said he bought it from a farm, now I wish I had asked where. It's old, has a screen for the bottom so the bird seed stays dry. Old chippy white posts and molding and who knows what. To top it off is a piece of ceiling tin. This was not made recently, it's something an old farmer made from bits and pieces years ago, I LOVE it! It will go in the garden.
The mirror and basket were each a steal. I'll age the mirror a little (it's been painted white but it's SO white) it may even become a chalk board. I have 'sort of' wanted one of these baskets but they are always so large, this is a nice small size and easy to place somewhere plus it says EAS on the bottom so I'm wanting to believe it was used for Easter and not funerals...I can't do the funeral basket thing.
A woman had boxes of linens and a huge box of $1 pieces. Most of these were $1 and I would have grabbed more but by then I had run out of cash and I purposely didn't bring along very much since I have ZERO self control at flea markets.
Underneath it all is a beautiful barkcloth drape to use in the AZ bedroom, I'd like to replace the door with this, the colors go so well with what I have already got going there.
Also a pair of pillow cases and a couch/arm protector for me to embroider and crochet the edges...love finding that stuff! A beautiful rose table cloth, a doll pillow and 6 linen napkins to use to embroider.
I also ran into Deb from Garage Sale Gal, that was so nice to see a familiar smiling face!
More lilacs...they seem to be prettier this year than most (maybe it's just me), but I can just smell them looking at this picture!
They have always been my favorite flower ever since I can remember.
Now can someone please send us some sunshine!!!!
They are forecasting this rainy dreary stuff through Saturday.
It's really hard for me to get motivated and not get depressed...I'm one of those sun people.
Thanks for stopping by and reading my post!
