I went to a barn sale today sponsored by The Girls. I was in search for some Ice Cream Parlor Chairs, ( must be reasonable priced), but did not find what I was looking for , but found other treasures. I know where I can buy new that are imported from Mexico, and I have seen plenty for sale on eBay on the east coast with no shipping offered. BUT ON TO MY OTHER FINDS!!!!

So I came across this one vendor selling furniture made from other uses. He had this olive galvanized washing basket and it was converted to a light. Almost anything galvanized and I am on it. I am not crazy about the light. I probably will take the light off, and use it as a basket in my bathroom.

Then on down the dirt path to another vendor called M.A.D. Mason & Mor- Mason Jar Craft and Designs. Sorry, but they do not seem to have a web page on their business card but never fear there is an email: I have seen these online and even direction somewhere on how to make, but I have my hands in too many irons now.............I think this is so country-I just had to have it.

Once I saw this primitive plant stand similar in shape as this piece. I wanted that one back then as I wanted this one, but this was affordable-where to show off my pies at the holidays. After I re-coated it-it now sits in the room that still needs to be completed.

Now, what is that cream colored object in the pick up bed. Well, I was looking at half moon pot holders...I wanted to attached one to this lonely window where my 2  bakers racks and little table will sit. I wanted a crown for my window so to speak....But again, price was a concern. Today, my problem was solved. I found this little decorated something that attaches to the wall....perfect except it needs to look we go.

Here is my windows is only up temporary for photo. It must be lowered a bit and secured to the wall.
                                                            TODAY IS A GOOD DAY!


  1. I have 2 of those ice cream chairs stashed in my garage. I pulled them out of a dumpster 20 yrs ago. I told the hubbs I was going to redo them (again) in the spring and bring them into the house.

    Great finds as always!

  2. Great, those little chairs are really nice. I wanted to find 4 to go with my little table. I really like them because the chairs are not bulky. I will keep looking as I am not ready to sat at the table.
