On the Hunt Again!!

I had soosooo much fun with my two girls junking this weekend that I am "on the hunt again",  or is that back in the saddle again?  Anyway... we had fun scouring sales and sipping on Starbucks,  little Mavis is getting into the hang of things with big sister and me showing her the ropes.  We had several drive bys, and really I had only purchased one item when we went to our last sale, oh my!!  I went into orbit over all the cool mid century lamps, dishes, furnishings, art, luggage.....

Primitive with Potential for someone Passionate about Past treasures

                                           Primitive Sideboard/Buffet/Server/Dresser?
This sideboard is very primitive,  yet has tons of potential for someone to make her into a Beauty!
Claw feet,  had rollers but the wheels are missing, you can get these at the hardware store,
drawers need work,  top has veneer peeling,  knobs need to be replaced but Hobby Lobby has some
fantastic knobs that run half price at least every 3-4 weeks:).  There are two small drawers that I am assuming are silverware drawers.  If you are passionate about vintage finds as I am,  this one is worth the effort!  Because I think she is such a unique piece but does need work....SOLD!

                                           Vintage Jubilee Punch set with 12 cups & ladel

Sorry, I have been intoxicated by SPRING!!!

I know it has been awhile but,   I am so enjoying this lovely weather,  going barefoot in the cool grass, working on the flower beds, swinging in the tire swing,  loving on my family with kisses & hugs, lots of great food,  walking in the park, spying on crazy cat fights, reading with the kiddo's, watching lightning bugs at night light up the woods like Christmas lights,  listening to the birds sing every morning when I have my time with the Lord,  having Him teach me such deep truths,  that I have not wanted to be on the computer. 

I do have some awesome pieces coming if I can just get myself in the mood to sand, prime and paint!  Maybe tomorrow....

I am babysitting... this cabinet,  for my daughter,  until she moves into a house
cool isn't it?  My dad actually bought this for me,  I had seen it at my cousin's
home and she did not want to sell at the time.  My dad talked her into selling it
to him and then he surprised me.  I used it for about 4 years then passed it on to
dear daughter when I did not have room for it.  Well,  I made room again:).

Sofa $300.00
