I hope this post finds you all safe & sound & up to your EYEBALLS in the good stuff....!! I'm sitting here in bed covered in white paint....It's in my hair, on my face, arms & under my nails....The palms of both hands feel rough from having used sandpaper & metho this weekend & I have three splinters requiring extraction....!!
Now I'm NOT havin' a sook mind 'cause I really do see my grubby tired state as a GOOD sign that I've been PRODUCTIVE....hahahahahahaha....Wasn't SURE if this would be the case though considering I was 'talking' to the LOVELY Gina at Vintage Junk In My Trunk this morning about being 'imobilised by fear' at the amount of work I had in front of me to get ready for the SVJ-X when she asked what time it was....I replied I was embarrassed to say it was JUST AFTER 10am....In my defence though....I DID crawl into bed around 3am after working through the night on some AWESOME projects & with ONLY 12 days to go to the Shabby Vintage Junk Extravaganza this is likely to be a pattern repeated over & over until the BIG DAY....
Needless to say....NO MARKET for me AGAIN (that's two weeks in a row now) today so no NEW Treasures however, I have a selection of goodies I've been meaning to share with you for some time....! I found all of these lovely items the day the Progress Leader newspaper came to visit camp SVJ to photograph our home & you can view the feature here....After Bianca & Josie had left, I headed off for some R&R (thRifting & haRd rubbish) & these are my finds.....!!
Another vintage calf skin purse...I NEVER pass these up when they cross my path....!!
I RARELY find nice vintage tins in the op-shops these days so this little gem was a TREAT for sure....!!
Sweet Crinoline lady tablecloth....I know my blog buddy Tamara at A Treasured Past might have liked to have found this one....!
And I NEVER EVER pass up vintage cotton sheets....I share a fondness for these PEARLS with another blog buddy, Alison over at Hill & Vale Designs....!
WOO-FREAKIN-HOOHA....Vintage ledgers NEVER used....I almost had an ACEEDENT when I spied these beauties in a local op-shop....Snapped them up faster than you can say, 'stick a needle in your eye'....hahahahahahaSNORT....!!
Do you recognise this BEAUTY....This was one of those RARE HR finds that didn't require 10+ hours of restoration....!!
Just some work done to the top, a light sand to remove oil a GOOD clean & some wax....!!
Okeydokey....That's IT for me this weekend....My reader's telling me I have 90+ posts to read so I best get busy....!!
I hope to post again tomorrow night as I've been honoured with an award from the GORGEOUS Angela over at the Bounty Huntress....So stay tuned for some interesting Tamarah facts....hahahahahaha....And I PROMISE....They're NOT OCD related....P-R-O-M-I-S-E....!!!
Cheers for now,
