Doin’ the garage sale boogie

The small chicks and I hit garage sales this week.  We had way too much to do at the roost, (like putting the EnTiRE garden in)…but we just couldn’t resist the temptation to find those irresistible treasures out there just waiting to be snatched up. 

Can you believe I didn’t get pics of the incredible finds?  At least not a collective pic. 

I always love those pics you find in so many people’s blogs where all their treasures are clumped together, rather eclectically, providing inspiration for us rather inspirationally challenged chicks.

I do have some lone pictures to post:DSCN2713This was a find for my Farmhouse Bakery chick.  She was mesmerized by all the “old timey” recipes and pictures included in the book.  Wanna know when the book was published? 1970…..real old, ya know! Since when did the 70’s constitute “old timey”? Hmmp!

This is an old pepper mill….I just love all things old and useful.  $1.00

DSCN2716Just some really cute decorations for my china hutch…I know you can’t see it yet (will post more on this), but my rooster built every inch of our house by his own two hands.  This hutch he custom made the way I wanted it and made the top  outa ash trees from our woods.  He  felled them, milled them, dried them and then turned some into a top for my hutch.  Pretty cool cock, eh?  $2.00

This was an ugly purple flowering thingy. Very ugly.  I just stripped the flowers out and placed it in it’s rightful place on the hutch. Waddya think I should put in it…if anything? .50

DSCN2718 Just thought this would be a great addition to my school room or guest bedroom (which is gonna be in blue and brown).  $2.00

Well, wouldn’t ya know that the ole picture taker is down for the count.  Gotta go recharge.  Be back with more pics soon.
