I hope this note finds everyone relaxed following the weekend break....!! I'm afraid my 48 was quite hectic....So much so that I was too pooped to post last night falling into bed at 8.30pm....!
My reader is FULL of exciting posts from all my FAVE bloggers which I'm ITCHING to investigate alas, they will have to wait until I return home from work this evening.... ** sigh ** PESKY day job....hahahahaha....!
Speaking of work, yesterday was my day to share a stall with my Friend Lyn at the Market so I was up at 3am to get ready, get to the Market & unload & move my car to the vendor parking area in order to be out of Lyn's way when she arrived....!! This was all said & done by 4.30am which meant I had several hours to run around shopping until I needed to be back at the stall to open up....Funnily enough, I didn't find ANY Treasures until almost 7.30am when I was heading back to the stall....!
Now this YUMMY perfectly chippy red metal fire hose cupboard was found on the side of the road on Saturday afternoon....It had RED BACK spiders all over the back of it.....yarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr....HATE those things....For my US readers, these spiders are thought to be related to the Black Widow & the female has a NASTY bite to contend with....
Mr SVJ is going to help me put a couple of shelves in this piece & of course it needs a GOOD clean & after a spray with poly it will look DELICIOUS....!!!
There she is....NASTY little BE-ATCH....!!!
Moving along....For your viewing pleasure are the smalls from the weekend....Aren't they PERTY....hahahahaha.... :o)
Sweet little Apprentice tool tray & red & white Willow tin....BOTH found on the side of the road....LOVE vintage Willow & haven't seen this particular pattern before & of course being RED I couldn't leave it behind....!
Galvanised BEAUTY....I've not seen a galvanised basin before so I was HAPPY to find this at the Market yesterday....And the gavalnised basket originally from Authurs Dairy, was found in the HR on Saturday.... :o) !!!
Sexy SEXY galvanised basin....
TO FREAKIN DIE FOR Florentine lamp base....I found one of these ten years ago at the Market so when I stumbled upon this one yesterday I was OVERJOYED....Now I have TWO in this shape & style....WOOHOO for me....hahahahaha....!!!
The patina on these two wood pieces makes my heart ACHE....Just SENBLOODYSATIONAL....They're old hat block pieces & will be GORGEOUS as display pieces at the upcoming Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza....!!
The spool is another AWESOME piece & is currently home to some very fine copper thread....LOVE the scone/bicky/donut cutter thing & the whisk & the hearth brush are VERY droolworthy....!!
Love love L-O-V-E this industrial light fitting....And the rope is for Mr SVJ to use in a new cat scratching post for those little vandals, Baxter & Harley who have RUINED their old one....!!
Well I must be off....The walk to the station awaits....!
I hope you all had a HAPPY & SAFE weekend & I look forward to catching up with your adventures tonight....!!!
