I am a true primitive lover. I instantly fall in love with warmth and history of old primitive pieces. love to go to garage sales and auctions to look for treasures to add to our old farmhouse. I specialize in creating primitive stitcheries, seasonal and repurposed items.
Hi. Just wanted to pop on quick and share my awesome finds from today. I had to go to Lowe's for some barn paint and just took a minute to run into the GW. I have never found my Pfaltzgraff dishes there, but today was different. I went in looking for some wood pieces to redo and was just walking out and there they were. The soup tureen doesn't have a lid, but that's okay. All together for the 16 pieces was $16!! I was so excited.
Then, this afternoon, our girls had a youth group fundraiser at an auction. If you liked lamps, you were in luck. Hundreds of them. They aren't for me, but they had a few jugs and crocks. They put them all together for choice so I thought I would be in trouble. Well, the bidding was over almost as fast as it started and guess what?? I won this beauty. Now, it does have chips and some cracks, but all of those marks just tell a story and add character, right? Besides, I don't think I could afford the perfect ones anyway.
The best news......only $13!!! My pastor who was helping with the fundraiser told me I should feel guilty. Do I?? Heck no!!
Today is also our 20th anniversary and look what DH sent to me. Twenty beautiful roses. Isn't he sweet? Wonder how long I will get a rose for each year? I love the orange and yellow ones...they look like fire.
I have to leave you with this picture of some of our new spring kittens. They kept getting into my flower pots to sleep and ruining the flowers. So, I took a bowl, filled it with dirt, and put it where the pots were. I came out this morning to find them all (5) with momma squeezed into it. Not too comfortable looking, but cute!!
Gotta run for now. Remember, only 5 more followers and I will be having a giveaway. I'm still thinking on what it might be. I'll let you know soon. Take care and thanks for stopping by.
