Good afternoon!! We are in the middle of another cold, rainy, yucky day. I think the sun must have gone on vacation because it has not been seen in days. Normally by this time of year, DH has at least part of the crops in. This is not the case this year. I think now he is just hoping to get started by May. Keeping fingers crossed. As farmers, we know not to wish for the rain to stop. See, then it stops all together and doesn't come when we need it.
I stopped at my first garage sale last week. It was like an "American Pickers" episode. Tool shed full, wagons sitting out, things everywhere. This is an annual sale but this year it was at least 3 times bigger. I arrived about 30 minutes after is started only to be met by people taking ARMLOADS of goodies out. Darn, it!! My first instinct was to trip them, grad the wares and run!!!! I was a good sport though and told them "looks like you found some neat stuff". Benches, buckets, things to decorate outside were leaving fast. It was one of those instances where I drew a blank at what I wanted to look at because there was soooo much. I made a quick pass around the wagons first to see if anything caught my eye and then off to the tool shed. This box was my first find.
The top has to have been added on at some point. The hinge isn't old. I just love the writing on it. Perfect spot to stash all of my stitching stuff next to the couch!
Next, I found this chair. I think chairs may be an addiction. Shhhh...don't tell. I was going to put it outside but decided to try it inside first. They had several unpainted ones......wish I had picked one of those up to go inside. Darn it!!
This little basket is my favorite. So simple!!
