Should we go to The Farm Chicks or shouldn't we?
We had gone last year and had a great time and since it fell on our anniversary week-end it was like a mini vacation.
Well, I decided not to!
I missed getting to look at everyone's wonderful things and rubbing elbows with fellow bloggers and friends, but what I saved on money going down there, I spent here at home.
I can't wait to see all the fabulous pictures from everyone that went to The Farm Chicks!
I did sign up for a sale on Friday and hit a few others after that.
Yesterday, we went back to various sales picking up furniture we had bought the previous day.
I'll share more about that in another post.
That was quite an event!
But for now here are a few of the items I picked up.
My #1 spotted more paper ribbon, and you know how I love that!
I was so excited to find this old box of curtain clips.
It doesn't take much to get me excited!
The old clock in the first photo was a fun find.
I kept that for my living room.
It's old metal and white, what a great combination!
I also found a few old umbrellas and an old suitcase.
I spotted this sweet print Friday morning.
But it was in the hands of another buyer.
I went back Sunday and, "Wow, it was there! Half price too!"
Here is a wonderful old trunk.
I actually saw this Saturday at an estate sale.
I decided not to buy it.
My #1 always cringes when I look at old trunks.
And I saw him cringing when I spotted it!
But then Saturday night I justified buying it.
It would be great for storing blankets, right?
So Sunday, if it was still there, I would purchase it!
Half price too!
I'm actually using it as a coffee table in the living room.
It goes great with the couches!
I think hubby likes it too!
Wow, this post is getting pretty long so I'll end it with this last picture.
Here is an old farm table we picked up.
It was crammed in a corner in the basement.
I didn't realize it was missing the drawer until we were hauling it out the next day.
I guess it's just another project for my sweetie!
