windmill

happy weekend y’all,

geez, this central texas wind is something lately! hate to complain (haha … i’m the queen of whining), but it really makes life difficult when you’re trying to paint (especially spray paint!) on your back patio. oh well, at least the sun, it shineth today. hooray.

i got some painting done earlier in the week. not a lot … just a little pink madness here and there.

yesterday, matt and i hit an estate sale. apparently not early enough though. missed out on a wonderful vintage desk (JUST the kind i’ve been searching for!). there it was, just sitting there, pretty as you please. for all of $10.00. i nearly puked when i saw the big ol’ SOLD sign on it. arghhhhhhhh.

naturally, i tried to use my wicked wiles (they don’t work so well on women) to talk the lady into “re-selling” it to me … for a higher price. i know. i’m evil. i’m bad. hell in a handbasket and all that jazz.

no dice. she was nice about it and offered to give the buyer my phone number if she chose to negotiate with me. i won’t be holding my breath (breathe, breathe … it’s not the end of the world). that was a GREAT vintage desk in primo condition … and for $10. well! i wouldn’t re-sell it. okay, maybe for $200.

so i must move on and stop thinking about it. stop thinking about it. stop thinking about it.

somebody needs a xanax …

seriously though. i did find some other treasures there. and the sweet thing about it was that it was just one street over from the house i grew up in. my old stomping grounds. and the lady running the sale knew everyone i knew. small world. for all the damn good it did me getting that desk.

hmmph.

i LOVE vintage sheet music (i’m a pianist, but not so’s anyone could notice) and they had lots of old, old awesome vintage sheet music in this house. bought most of it. matt asked if i planned to play all those songs on the piano. oddly enough, it hadn’t occured to me. told him i would probably just display them or use them in crafting.

he seemed slightly irritated with me and said, “well, i think you should at least play them before you cut them up into pieces for crafts!”

my, my. an opinionated child. imagine that. that apple didn’t fall far from the tree …

anyways, my other treasures from the ES (estate sale) : a vintage picture frame, a great old tole tray and small silver platter AND a huge beautiful vintage original painting. my grand total: $6. not bad, eh? pics below.

we moved on to some yard sales and then the GW bargain barn. all a bust. but that’s okay. i was more than pleased with my ES treasures.

before we left cove, i had to zip in to sue’s booth. it’d been a long time (too long!) since i’d visited. ohmygawd. lovelies galore!! sue, i bought the “lace” chandie (LOVE IT!), two of your precious garden stakes with rose plates attached (who woulda thunk it?! … only sue!), a most beautiful mini wreath with roses and green lace and the pink heart with buttons. ahhhhhhhhh!!! pics pics pics below. thanks for being so crafty, sue. you’re the best.

and it’s only saturday morning! lotsa sales out there today … if the wind doesn’t blow them away. have fun y’all!

love and hugs,
terry lee

Hi again!

Not much happening in my world today. Just had a nice chat with my hubby and now he’s off to watch sports or some other gawd-awful thing on television.

Won’t write much because I have lots of pics I want to post today. As they say, pictures are worth a thousand words … and even more when you add captions! 🙂

As promised, here are some pics of my treasure finds at Sue’s booth on Friday (sorry to make you work so hard, Sue!) … also some other random pics! Enjoy!

Sue's AWESOME bird creation! I paired it with one of her shabby shelves, holding a cherub vase and the fluffy feathered blue bird I also got from Sue's booth. Love it!

A little glamour for my vanity. Foreground: some pretties on a pink tray/plate.

Found this piece at the GW barn a long time ago. It was a dark metal and missing what I think used to be a clock in the round center part. Painted it and put a sweet Victorian pattern in the middle. Now I hang my bling on it!

I LOVE this sweet sleeping baby angel. Got her at the Hob (my term of endearment for Hobby Lobby) in the 88% off aisle! Woohoo! I\'m gonna get to work on her as soon as I feel up to it. I\'m thinking a good bath in my pink paint ...

Till next time! 🙂
