By the time Friday night rolled around, I was feeling completely burned out on life and swore I was going to spend this entire weekend doing positively nothing. Hahaha. I crack myself up. Me do nothing in the springtime on the weekend? Probably never going to happen.
I did let myself sleep until 8 30 on Saturday though. Then we trotted off to a city wide garage sale out in the country. It wasn't as full of good junk as I had hoped, but it was late in the morning, cold and raining. It didn't matter though, the drive was gorgeous and I love it out there.
And what I did pick up I really love.
The flea market was good to me this morning too. Look at that quilt!!! God it is gorgeous. I am going to need another projik pie safe soon. (I don't think I can fit this one in there.)
I picked up another 2 sets of old canisters too. Not in the greatest shape, but they are useful. And they were crazy cheap.
Does anyone know an easy way to clean them? They are always dirty, but the paint seems to come off so easy. And just soap doesn't seem to cut the dirt.
Of course, I bought a piece of pottery. Or two.
And a tablecloth. Or two. They haven't been washed yet, so ignore those stains. I'll get to it.
And the most awesome find, an old flour sack with the label still on it. They label is made of crepe paper, and has a 1959 copyright on it.
I can't decide if I should wash it or leave it be...
It's good to have junking season back in swing, even if there is no place to park. And even if there is a lot less stuff than usual. (I know it probably doesn't seem like it here, but there is less stuff out there.)
There are gobs and gobs more photos on Flickr. Photos of gorgeous old buildings out in the country with beautiful blue lead paint, close ups of the quilt fabrics, some of the other stuff I bought, pictures taken by Jack, and more. You know you want to look at them. :-)
I am off to sneak a 2 minute nap in. Bliss.
