I hope this post finds you all feelin' chipper....I've been flat out like a lizard drinkin' gathering Treasures like there's NO tomorrow....Something to be said I guess for that old sayin'....Make HAY while the sun SHINES 'cause in a week or so I'm taking a wee break to go visit some Friends in 'faraway parts' & need to ensure I'm STOCKED up for when I return.... :o) !!
Speaking of which....I thought I'd share a recent load of Treasures with you....Without further ADO....Behold yesterdays 'jigsaw puzzle'....
Hard to tell if there's anything to get excited about at this stage....
Some interesting shapes & textures to be sure....
Miscellaneous clutter....Ahhhhhhh....So THAT'S where my apple got to.... :o)
OK....So FIRST up....High....Like WAY HIGH on my HR shopping list has & will ALWAYS be vintage jars....ESPECIALLY Mason & Agee jars....Well yesterday for the VERY FIRST time in my 10 year HR history, I stumbled upon not one but TWO boxes filled with BOTH....Can you say....H-A-P-P-Y....???
These have all been cleaned & while I've kept the three Mason jars & this YUMMY jar at the front, the rest are going off to storage....For the time being.
This desk is GORGEOUS with GREAT bones....I've scrubbed it & am in the process of fitting some AWESOME door knobs to the drawers....LOVE the Willow tin on top & how's that RAD lamp from the 60's....!!
HEAP of 1950's frames....DROP DEAD YUMMY rusty metal table....It's been scrubbed & introduced to Poly....Sunburnt plant stand & Pope fuel tin....I've NEVER seen one of those before....!
Oopse....Almost forgot the Lloyd Loom basinette....Love....LOVE....L-O-V-E the chippy paint on this piece....SERIOUSLY....!
CUTIE PIE olive green vinyl travel bag & assorted vintage luggage....I never EVER pass up vintage luggage....It is FOR SURE a FAVE....!!
Resin frame has a break in it but some adhesive will fix this & then it will get a paint job....I think sky blue for this one.... :o) !
Now this IS A PROJECT....When I knocked on the door of the house this was in front of to see if it was OK to take it, the lady apologised for it's condition advising her Son had ripped off the doors when he put it out on the nature strip....hmmmmm....RIPPED is not an exaggeration....You can see a portion of a door frame HANGING off the cupboard underneath the drawer....!
Aside from this, the piece lived the last part of it's life in the garage & has oil throughout....I'll remove the ply & replace it with ply sourced from the HR, fix the doors & hinges which are bent & give it a clean....I'll see how it looks & will only resort to a new paint job if I HAVE TO....It has a GREAT colour combo goin' on with the grey, yellow & green which I'd like to keep....We'll see....!
Yeckkkkk....I'll keep you posted.... :o) !!
Can you believe it's Wednesday tomorrow....Where are the days, weeks & months going....?? What I WOULDN'T give for an extra FIVE hours in each day...hahahahahaha....I bet I'm not alone with that one....!!
