I went out junking last weekend with two of my kids in tow. I prefer not taking them so I can take my time and look for me. They always have something to show me or something they want. But it was either take them or not go. I only have a couple of pictures for right now.
I picked up these rolling pins. The big one was $1, the other one was only 25 cents! I love it because it's different than any I have. Can anyone tell me why it is made that way? The guy I bought it off didn't know. This is when I really miss my grandmas! I would call them up and ask them about anything on this earth and they would give me an answer, especially about old pieces and home remedies. Anyway, I was excited to add a couple of rolling pins to my small collection.
The old Cain's spice tin was only 75 cents and it is going on top of one of my spice cabinets in the kitchen. I love this old broom! There was a $6 price on it so I picked it up. As I was looking at the stuff on the table, the lady said that everything on the table was a quarter. I showed her the $6 price tag and she said it's still a quarter. Woo Hoo! =]
The broom is in great shape except for at the top. I didn't want to cover any of the pretty bristles, so I just cut off the scraggly strands and glued a little homespun at the top. It's going in my laundry room but right now, it's all decorated for fall so I will have to wait till I change out with the seasons.
I have a few more awesome deals that I picked up but I will show them with the makeovers I do on them. I so love before & after pics, they are fun!
I know so many have already decorated for Christmas. I love all the holidays and enjoy decorating for all of them. But my first love is fall so I will join in at the end of November. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, I appreciate hearing from you all! I let my blog reading get three weeks behind... YIKES! But I'm glad to say that now I'm only one week behind. =]
