I love you guys.

I really do.

But I have to confess....

that these pics are just a small portion of the stuff we found today!

I had to stop taking photos cuz the darn { keepin it clean}

mosquitoes thought I was delicious.

You should see my ankles.....

{or maybe not}


Mr. OTM and I had an absolutely WONDERFUL day today.

Birds chirping.....

Sun shining....

Breeze blowing......

junk lurking......!

We got up this morning to send off my parents back to Ohio. They stayed with us over night on their trip home from Florida. Even though it was a super short visit, I loved it just the same.

After they left we decided to head out to a new untapped flea market.




After we finished up there we decided to go Antique Malling!

Love hittin new places and rummaging through new territory.

Take a peek at the first of the stuff I took off the truck.The ladder.....adorable size....super color

This old rusty crust tractor seat is precious. Yellow and precious.


Now take a lookie and this tray!!! You are gonna flip. It's got a glass base and tightly woven sturdy painted a hundred times wicker and the handles are metal!

Can't decide to place this one on ETSY or my dining room table.

Chippy in all the right places...


Okay...now I need your help. I got 9 of these old fence sections. Each one is about 3 feet long, with rusty crusty old chippy paint.

Got any ideas???

My first thought was a trellis.

So far......that's it.

AND......Honestly the VERY VERY VERY BEST part about today was a total shock!

A total surspise! The best find of the day.

Out of the clear blue I get a phone call from one of my dearest friends in the world who I was unable to locate for about 6 years. I had tried to find her number. I knew she had moved. I did alot but nothing ever came together. Then all of the sudden...today I am talking to her on the phone. OH* MY* GOSH! I was sooooooo happy! I wanted to hug her through the phone. Picked up right where we left off and I can't wait to chat with her again this week. Judy...if you're reading this, the smile on my face is has been there since about 1:00 this afternoon. I am so happy to have found you. Or that you found me.

SO that's my day. All in all , it was perfect. One of the best I've had in a long time.

I sure hope you're day was just as blessed.

Love the new blog look and I'm so glad you had a fantastic day! Isn't it always better when you spend it with those you love, both near and far?

And I hear you on the impending holiday preparation. I think I might need to begin addressing Christmas cards, soon! :)

Oh Beth, that tray is exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for to go on my dining room table. I had bought an oval wooden dough bowl, but didnt like the wood on wood look and don't want a runner because we eat at this table most nights. I think I need something white that I can set anything junky on:-)

Great finds!

You had a very profitable day I'd say...love the 'seat' I can see that sitting in a garden.


Sabrina @Falling Leaf Woodworkers and Primitives said...
