This is what Mr M did on our Anniversary. Made this...
look like this:
Today I spent some time drilling holes into the concrete (Little Miss in bed), and I tell you it is so much more rewarding than housework. On the other hand I don't usually feel like this at night from housework...ouch!!
Anyway, getting back to Saturday. I though I might as well take Little Miss out treasure hunting because I can't really help Mr M when she is awake. I decided to go to a boot sale at a Church in a nearby town. This boot sale was advertised in the local paper. I was hoping for an oval full of cars... but there was only FOUR cars!!! Hmm, luckily the Church next to it was holding a sale too. They were selling off the old Sunday School chairs. I thought the metal ones below would be perfect for the cubby house that Mr M will finish one day (he just has so much to do but it's nearly done). He thinks the cubby should be mostly water tight so they should be safe in there. When I saw them I knew I had to grab some. I would have loved to buy all of them but I only bought four. $5 each.
I also bought two of the wooden ones below (I would have liked to buy all of them also). Apparently the oldest Church members remember sitting in these chairs at Sunday School when they were kids. Most of them have repairs and they are so well loved as you can see. I love that they have this history.
How cute are the little worn feet rests. I wonder how many times these chairs were painted and how many children have sat in them. The one on the left has been repaired like almost all of the others they had there. The yellow one was the only one that did not have the side supports replaced or moved to a diagonal angle.
Next I found a Lions shed that I hadn't been to before. When I walked in and saw that nothing had a price I took it as a good sign. I had my eye on a retro sideboard in perfect nick that they wanted only $30 for! It stayed there though as we really need to de-clutter not clutter.
Speaking of cluttering I picked up the blue pie plate below in the city and it cost more than the yellow combined with a small mixing bowl and two Pyrex lids at the Lions shed. Love places like this.
One marked pie dish marked Agee Pyrex and the other Crown.
And this little cutie:

Enjoy your week!
