Well we've entered the DO OR DIE stage as we enter the final preparation leading up to the SVJ-X....My head is literally SPINNING with everything that needs to be done & this is WITHOUT the MANY projects requiring my attention for my own stall....So it's FULL STEAM AHEAD here at Camp SVJ today....As I type I can hear Mr SVJ banging (& swearing) something (about something) out in his workshop so I won't dilly dally lest the swearing & the banging involve me....hahahahaha....!!
I have 27 projects out on the back deck that I need to FINISH today HOWEVER, I didn't want to become so caught up in everything that I missed out on posting my Sunday Wrap Up....So here again for your viewing pleasure are my Treasures below from the Market & my run through the HR yesterday....ALL GOING WELL, I hope to be able to pop back this evening to discuss my 'projects'....!!
** NB: Remember the gate & the bench are PREVIOUS finds....!! **
GORGEOUS chippy cream wood & metal high chair, camp stool & print plucked from the nature strip....!!
I bought a boxed lot of vintage kitchenalia at the Market this morning....I LOVE this stuff & I use it all the time in various junk projects....!!
Now WHY would you put these out in the Hard Rubbish when we have recycling bins....???
Wire milk bottle carriers that I just need to peel the remaining plastic from & spray with poly....THANK YOU HR Angels....!!!
YUMMY wooden clothes airer....I ALWAYS rescue these from the HR....A light clean & rub with bees wax & Bob's your Uncle....!
Next to gavalnised stuff, red metal stuff & chippy painted stuff....CRINKLY wire stuff is my FAVE....hahahahahaSNORT....! This bike basket was bought from my FAVE dealer at the Market this morning....!
Oh my FREAKIN HECK....I almost fainted when I spied this gavanised BEAUTY at the Market this morning....I can FIT IN IT with my legs over the side....I know what I'll be doing this summer out on the deck & it involves me, my undies & BEER....OK....Perhaps NOT a picture you needed but I just HAD TO SHARE.... :o) !!
PERFECTLY shabby bird cage....Always always ALWAYS pick these up in the HR when I see them....!!!
GOBSMACKINGLY AWESOME blackboard form the Hard Rubbish....Just needs a clean & we're good to go....!!!
You KNOW I have a THANG for these babies....I paid a bit for this one but I don't have one with drawers so it was a MUST HAVE....!!!
Another typewriter....Now I have THREE....A COLLECTION at last....Scored this one at the Market....!! And last but by NO MEANS least is a really NEAT handrail....Would make a GREAT ballet bar in a little girls room....!!
OK I must FLY.....I hope everyone is having a TOTALLY JUNKACIOUS weekend....I'll be back....hahahahahahaSNORT....!!!!!!
Cheers for now,
PS: Remember my living room several weeks ago ....? Well thanks to the rain this afternoon when I was NECK DEEP in projects outside, it doesn't look as tidy any more....!!
** sigh ** I pushed the dining table up against the lounge , placed a drop sheet on the floor & dragged EVERYTHING (almost) inside....!!
All items have been cleaned....Now I just need to finish, staining, sanding the odd rough edge, spraying with poly (metal items), waxing with bees wax, painting and then pricing....ALL except for that GINORMOUS tub I bought at the Market this morning....THAT's a KEEPER....hahahahahaha....!!
Now before I head off for some much needed R&R (reading all those YUMMY blogs I follow) I just wanted to say HI to Jacinta who left a note on my blog earlier....I REMEMBER you from Friars Town....Please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org as I'd like to catach up with you....!!
