Hi Y'all, this is Paula -
Ok. I'm going to break all kinds of blog rules right now. First rule to bite the dust is: photos. There will be no photos! We just haven't had a chance to use the camera. However, we did raid our storage building and found our camera lenses. That excites us! Second rule to bite the dust is: share something worthy. This is just a little note to let you all know that we are out of pocket and what we are doing.
Last night Jennifer and I were able to do something that we haven't done in several years. We went to an auction! We had such fun. The last auction that I'd been to at Pinnacle Auctions was over 8 years ago but I was still in the system and I got my old number. How much fun is that? =) We'll share what we found next week. Our favorites were a pink petticoat and a neat red and white dress, maybe from the 50s. The dress has the cutest ruffled collar.
Today we hit a little thrift store and we found some treasures. We didn't know what to load in the car first! The most unusual items we found were porcelain refrigerator containers. One says "meat" and the other "vegetables". If it wasn't dark as pitch I'd photograph them now. They are so cute and I can't wait for you to see them.
Our search for more items to take to Round Top , TX was a success, and that was our goal.
No painting for us this week. We had rain almost every day or the humidity was just too high for painting. We knew that the paint would take forever to dry. But we did do sanding and a bit of patching that needed to be done before painting. Hoping for perfect painting weather next week.
Watch for photos of our finds soon!
Now we need your advice. If you had a space to fill for a flea market or antique show, what would you take? I've asked this before, but I'm gonna keep on asking - what are you on the hunt for? What item eludes you?
