Had a great time at Debs
wore me out. Here is what I found there was so much everyone was having yard sales since it has rained non stop for the last month. Found the chairs at one sale and the table at another sale. Best part the table was $3.00 got 2 chairs for $10.00. Everything else was under $5.00. Almost like the good old days.

It is Thursday getting ready for my trip to KC..
can't wait we have such fun. We will be hitting virgin areas.. Thrifiting that is. I almost bought another lamp early 60's with shade really no place to put it pretty big. I did get some birds will post later and a metal 50's shelf. As you all know for a while every thing was leaves on the new front. This shelf is old original leaf design. I have alot of vintage leaf designs. It you see my table at the beginning of my blog. It is from the 40's and has a feather design on the glass and of course leaves on the chairs. It took me 4 years to find the right size for my house. I have ad many formica and metal tables which I have given to DEB we were talking last night about the oriental (asian)50's table it is the coolest yet which she still has. Well got to get to the gym. Talk soon

I wonder if the rain will ever end. Checked my garden out and the beans are up..The giant sunflowers are doing good too. Here are some pictures of some of my stuff. I had a 40's radio and got rid of it when I moved always wanted another, I say this is the sister of the one I had. They are identical. Deb (ZSM) got me this horrible lamp/clock. I love cabin and vintage horse stuff. This needle point is a one of a kind. I will post my paint by number pictures soon. I really love barkcloth curtains. These cabin drapes were really hard to find. Sometimes it takes me along time to find the perfect piece I am looking for. Got to go and get some coffee. I just love my Sundays alone and pieceful..
Another rainy day I wish the thrift stores were open for something to do or even a yard sale. Going to box up Christmas oh yes that is what I said. My son and crew are coming soon. Got a new espresso pump it is awsome. Makes the quickest and best shot. Going to Deb's next weekend (zoot suit mamma) we have been friends for decades... Gotta go

It takes alot for me to get excited thrifting anymore when you have been doing it as long as I have it is so hard to find the really cool stuff....Well today I did ..Mermaid lamp with stars 50's perfect shape and even the star lamp shade!! Also found an old watering can and creamer set. It was a good day!!! The best part the lamp was half price $4.00 that used to be the good old days. Last week I found a 50's Westing house toaster goes with the rest of my chrome in my kitchen.
