Good One

Well,    after a pretty bad summer of pickings, found these.   Yesterday found the Mc Coy Pottery for a steal.  Their was a garage full of bottles but she would not sell.  Went by this morning and their was a small table of bottles.  Oh , but the motherlode of bottles lie in the old garage shelves.  Will be waiting.  The old highchair will be restored for the grandbaby in March.  It is oak under the paint.  The next sale was a few streets away.  Walked up and picked up the old boxes. Then lots of costume jewelry.  I picked the cheapest and best.  I didn't realise what 2 things I would get excited about until I got home.  I got out my jewelry loop and found out the ring was really gold.  The stone was a ruby but worn on top and scuffed.  For $5.00 I still love it. Will try to restore.  Next is the locket.  I see no markings on it,but when I opened it their were 2 old pictures inside!   Bonus!!    O happy day!!!   judy

Smitten with McKinney Texas

vintage shoes from antique mall
burlap bird at "Smitten"
turquoise stove from Farmersville 20% off
One of my favorite stores in McKinney, Texas.  It was really hot today but not enough to stop me.  Looked at some "Chalk Paint" at "Smitten".  Don't know about it yet but when I do it's there,, all colors!  The tiny turquoise stove reminds me of the house I grew up in . The kitchen was all turquoise!  Fridge, stove, telephone,  everything!  My parents have passed on so this is a reminder of those days on Londonderry Lane in Dallas.  Stay Cool!  judy

Old jar I got today, nice crown embossed on front.


This was a freebie.  I bought a hoosier cabinet from a man  and he gave me this statue.  I just love old religious items!!   judy

To Paint or Not...That is the Question

My neighbor gave me  this cool halltree a while back.  I do love it but look at it ever so often and wonder what white would look like.  Everything in the room is painted white.  What would u do???  judy
