~Can someone help me get this to the car... PLEASE??~

You know I was all over this piece today when I saw it sitting there... I am so anal that I had to add a better pic of it to the blog just now... however I did start working on the cute little mirrored drawer tonight that I bought from my friend Beth last year, it has a turquoisey color underneath so I have begun to chippy it a bit.

Well ....I normally don't thrift on Tuesdays....BUT I had to run some things by my booth at The Sleepy Poet after work today, I decided to make a quick pass through the market but it had to be fast I hate to get caught up in the 5 o'clock traffic... and was I ever glad I did!! Lookie at the Chippy White I am in LOVE piece I got !! An Old Farmhouse Cupboard... All I could get out of my mouth was, "Can someone help me get this to the car??" , " I need some help with this!" Sometimes the best finds are the ones you don't have to search high and low for ....they come right to you!! Sorry for the little blur to the pics, it is as hot as blazes outside, I don't know what was worse, me sweating like a goat still in my dress clothes and heels or the lense of the camera constantly fogging up!! Anywho here they are!!

Isn't she a beauty??? And the price was so cheap, I almost stole it, I think it would cost more to fill up my car than the price I paid for it!! I can't believe it... And then I saw the 30% off sign too..... It did not take me 5 seconds to rip that price tag right off and run to the register with it!! I looked like I had won the lottery! All it needs is one board to the back, no biggie, easy fix. This is a perfect piece for anyroom. I can see it nestled in a Cottage Style Bath, in a living room with an old chippy hutch right on top, in the foyer, screened porch, the possibilities are endless with this piece!!

Here is another oldie I stumbled across today, had to hit the thrift stores on the way home after leaving the Poet. Very old Japan piece, lots of crazing to it, LOVED IT!! Along with an antique old mirror, old basket and old wood pegged side table ( Poet find...will be cute chippy white with cloche on top), the Glass terrarium was just a had to have extra for $2 bucks!

Well this should be all for this week!! I am going to and from work, no more stops til the weekend!! Now on trash pick up day I will have to search the side streets on the way in to work, but thats for FREE!!! Blessings, Janna

Janna, I'd be glad to help you get it to Dallas!!! What a great cupboard and wouldn't it be so fantastic with a small farmhouse sink in it for your bathroom? You are so right, the possibilities are just so endless, why it just boggles the mind.
I don't mind saying that is a beautiful piece of pottery as well. You did girl with your high heels on!

I had to laugh when I saw the title to your post!
It was our Hard Rubbish a week or so back and I saw a 'have to have' set of drawers on the roadside as I took my youngest to kinder and then my oldest to school. We were, as usual, running late but as soon as I saw the drawers I began working out in my head if it will fit in the boot of our Sedan!
All the drawers (6) went in the car (so I could lift it) and the body 'just' fit very precariously sticking out of the boot. Just jammed - boy did I drive straight home slowly and carefully!! Luckily it was not far. What I sight I must have been!!
And the oldest was late for school!
Love the white cupboard too! I agree with Debbie :)Perfect in a bathroom with a sink.

Hi Janna
What is the name of your booth at Sleepy Poet? Next time I'm in there I want to make sure I don't miss it. What are your favorite thrift shops in the Charlotte area? I'd be interested to know.
