I should be out sanding , but instead...

I am in here playing...again!
I thought I would share a few of my recent finds.

I picked up this jar at the Goodwill because it
has a fleur de lis pattern on each side.
Love it.

I happened upon a garage sale last week that was
huge! The sale was in a pole barn and it was full.

I was good and only purchased a few inexpensive
things. Got a couple boxes of these old jelly jars, a
stack of feedsacks, some wooden spools, a
mirrored vanity tray and a couple old patterns.
{patterns were free with purchase}

I found this ladder last week at a favorite
antique mall. {I had to move a rug with shoes on it and dust
the cobwebs out of the corner for this photo. *SMILE*}

love this vintage *thinga ma jiggy*...bucket??

2 beautiful Ikea pillow shams for $1.00
{ribbon included}

This beautiful jar was made just for me by Tracie of
My Petite Maison. Isn't it gorgeous!!

and finally this stack of vintage lace for $2.00

What have you found lately ?

Now I must get busy and get some work done
and quit letting this computer distract me.lol.

Have a warm summer Thursday! Blessings~

Yes you are a country girl and I can tell you love it like I do. The barns are wonderful. I also loved your WW phlox photos. I think phlox is such a great plant and bloom. Mine aren't blooming yet.

Hi Sandi... love all your treasures! Isn't that an old fruit picking basket that would hang in the tree while you picked cherries, etc? I LOVE that old ladder, I have been looking for one of those to hang some of my vintage dishtowels on in my kitchen... your bottle from Tracie is fabulous! She creates the most exquisite items and I am lucky enough to own several of her creations too... love to you... xoxo Julie Marie
