It was JACKPOT Friday, in my Brokedown Boots and Broke Umbrella!!!!.....

It was JACKPOT Friday!!!....I have to admit our weather was just terrible rain here in NC today. I did not have much hope for any good finds, but boy did the day take a turn for the best and I was Blessed!! I got to my favorite junkin ground today and the bottom fell out, my umberella was broke on booth sides. To say the least I had on my black boots, they are 8 years old... My favorite black boots, yes Beth you know the ones!! She has been begging me to get the heels fixed for a year. They are so old but I must say "still looking good." Anyway ... the bottoms of both the heels have worn slap off so the clomp like a horse. I have even went so far to have my husband cut them back with a hacksaw to even them out. He is sooo embarrased by them and I think me by now. I will post a pic soon for everyone to get a chuckle out of... Therefore.. I stuff tissue in them to stop the noise, but on a rainy day like today you can only imagine that WET tissue falling out eveywhere. But man I love those boots. Sorry I got off track for a minute... In those boots and a broken umbrella I stumbled on some good finds across 3 counties today!! The little chippy drawered cabinets are my favorite for the day. They are the best chippy pale yellow with a hint of blue and the original crystal knobs, I am in love!! The chair was not a today find it was a find a few weeks ago in Asheville but I did come across the perfect cushion for it today. The little chippy white and green wall hooks were a great find, made from an old door. They were chippy and rusty so they had to be mine!!

I am still filled with excitement, it was clock face day !! Never have I found three in a day. I think for a $1 buck. I have been having a run on metal bread boxes lately, run on, I was just loving it!!

I tell you, I never find this many goods in a day!! I have been blessed for sure


My girlfriend got a hold of this stop sign for me. The chippy rusty yellow paint can was from one of my favorite junkin' grounds today!! And as always if you see somthing you can't live without, because I surely could not live without any of it today...let me know, it is always for sale!! Have a Blessed weekend!!
