White Wednesday Finds!

Wow, White Wednesday is here again!

I thought I'd show you my "Big" purchase I made this week-end.

Ok, so it's not so big, I'm being sarcastic but you know what?

I'm enjoying it just as much as if it were big.

This little ironstone pitcher was a whopping .25 cents!

It's got a lot of issues but I love it!

I love the dark crazing on these pieces, I don't even mind the dark crack running down it.

It will still hold water so it's even useful!

Another purchase I made this week-end was a chair.

Having cats in the house they like to destroy furniture.

And one chair in particular has gotten the bulk of their attention.

So when I saw this chair, for $12.50, at an estate sale I thought, "Why not?"

(sorry for the dark photo, the sun is shining in behind the chair, yes SUN!!!)

It's an old chair that was gently used.

There was extra fabric so I was able to make a couple of arm covers for it.

But, most importantly it will withstand kitty cats!

It's tough!

So even though we run around like crazy trying to stop the cats from their destructive habits it should be able to endure it.

Today, my #1 and I will celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary.

Wow, how time flies.

Love that man!

If you'd like to see our "Big" purchase from this week-end stop over at his blog, Cast-N-Flies, and he'll tell you all about it!

Happy White Wednesday Everyone!

Happy anniversary ! You can always put a jar in the pitcher ... I do this a lot just to save having to clean the pitchers.
ah the cats ... ours have torn apart one chair but I wanted to replace it anyway so they were kinda a means to an end :)) You found treasures... umm BIG treasures (())
