~This Weeks Makeovers and Junk Finds, GOOD Stuff!~

It has been a busy week with work .....and with a day or two of junk searchin, yard sales, flea markets, estate sales thrown into the mix and I don't know if I am coming, going or there already!! It was definitely too HOT here in North Carolina today to display my junk outside for pics, so I cut the A/C on high in the garage and piled/packed it all on in for you all to see..... Entrance below....

Remember the Brown/Burgundy Cupboard from last weeks post, if not it is the last picture of last weeks post....Well.... my husband suggested Pale Yellow...LOVED it, I think he is developing his decorator eye more than he will ever admit to! I just can't get over the difference. It will be going on sale at my booth at The Sleepy Poet tomorrow. And of you see anything you just gotta have, its always all FOR SALE, just shoot me over an email for a price!

Got these old Tins and Porcelin Pitcher at a yard sale this morning... The little old lady had cleaned out her rented storage building... Tins .50cents each and the OLD Pitcher I grabbed , she said twenty five , I said, "Dollars?" nope...CENTS!! Can you believe it, boy is it old , I don't know much about it, it has a little crazing and is a dingy brown, but it is cute! Of course the pillow was hers to, she said to take it for FREE!! (if anyone knows anything about the pitcher please let me know).

I am thinking this must have been rusty scale week, I sure found my share of them along with an Old Metal Mailbox, Old Glass Jars, Ironstone Gravy Bowl, Rusty Lunchbox, U name it , I found it today...The cute pink little bookcase is adorable but not mine, one of my customers dropped it by last night to have a makeover done on it!

I am not even sure what all is in this box, all I know the little lady said take the entire box for $2, thats all I needed to here.

Coolest chippy red chair!! The Mint Green Old Metal Tool Box, I had to take a swope in for when I saw a man going for it at the Yard Sale this morning!! I saw it first from a far and knew I had to have it...I felt a little bad...only for a second though!!

I am glad I was able to grab all of this up in only 3 stops and $30 bucks!! It definitely was a good sale day today... just too hot to tote any of it to my booths today. Thanks for taking a peek, I love hearing from all of you!! Thanks for inspiring me with your kind words and your awesome blogs!! Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads. Remember to give them a big hug...
...One of my friends unexpectedly lost her 21 year old daughter this week, it was so sad and devastating for everyone, just reminded me that we are all only passing never know what each day will bring, live with no regrets.... live what you love!! Please say a little prayer for my friend.. Blessings, Janna
