I spent $278.50 & LUCKY for me, I came out in front with my sales so in a way....These were FREE....hahahahaha....!!!
I LOVE white enamel bread bins....This makes number FIVE....PERFECT for storage with KILLER graphics....So much BETTER than hoarding shoes don't you think....??!!!
The patina on the sweet little drawer on top is TO DIE FOR....With chippy grey paint the little handle has a heart motif....I couldn't get my $2- out fast enough..... :o)
The little metal hook device on top comes from a car I think....I may mount it on a board & use it to display jewellery or hang a hand towel from it in the loo....!
OK....Next we have an AWESOME funnel, a SENSATIONAL chippy green galvanised flour bin with YUMMY handles....Needs a major clean inside as it's spattered with plaster....The DROP DEAD GORGEOUS heavy black box at the front also needs a good clean & a date with 'poly' to bring out it's handsome side.....While the green scales need some serious degreasing....yeccckkkkkk....Aren't those round platforms on the scales BRILLIANT....I can see chunky beeswax candles on them now.....Indeedy....!!
I bought four small earthen ware bottles (two pictured only)....Each with a yummy perfectly pitted & crazed patina....They'll make sweet vases for a floral display on our vanity basin.....!!
I haven't presented my four earthen ware bowls very well unfortunately....They are pitted & crazed to PERFECTION & are GREAT for everything from fruit to salads & wooden balls.....LOVE these bowls.... :o) !!
I collect these jars with their ribbed sides....I have around 30 of them though ONLY about 12 of them with these YUMMY green tin lids....!!!
Large chippy white steel trunk....SERIOUSLY grubby but a little elbow grease will sort that out quick smart....I'm HEAD OVER HEELS for the two sweet water colours at the front....At a DOLLAR each I couldn't pass them by.... :o)
I ADORE galvanised anything but when it's a tub like this BEAUTY below....Well....Words really do fail me.... ** sigh **
The green Willow bread bin is the perfect perfect PERFECT green....I call it 1940's green & I often take a piece to Bunnings & get them to colour match paint for me....Just LOVE it....!!
Grubby & crusty I just KNOW it's going to take AGES to clean these magnificent bread trays. It'll be worth it to see the handsome black colouring after a coat of poly has been applied....GREAT storage items FOR SURE & I can see them filled with cutlery, floral displays, condiments etc....!!!
I bought this early 1920's STUNNING oil on canvas horse painting as everyone was packing up....I can't believe no-one bought it during the Swap Meet....It was $2- & goes beautifully with another horse painting I have from the same era....!!!
Love love LOVE the crinkly wire welcome matt in the background....I see this as a message board with bits & pieces clipped to it....!
This tall chippy grey gavanised flour bin made my heart SING when I saw it....Could NOT get my money out QUICK ENOUGH....!!!
And last but by no means least are the 'smalls'....Three DIVINE clocks....The black & the cream ones are KEEPERS....I wish I could find DOZENS of these....!!
The watering can rose was TOO CUTE to pass up & I was THRILLED to find a few more coat hooks & a rake head for ongoing projects....!!
SO there you have it....I'm THRILLED with my haul & my ONLY regret is that I can't gather this amount of stuff EACH & EVERY weekend....!!
Speaking of gathering....Something BIG is happening....Over the last few months I've been in full on organisational mode & will be announcing my plans at the end of the week....Stay tuned....!
Have a GREAT week....!!
