May -Flea Market
We had a terrific weekend, the weather was gorgeous, so we kept ourselves busy doing outdoor stuff. Saturday morning we went to the flea market, this time not only my husband was giving me company but my daughter also joined in for the fun. :)
Of course with such a beautiful day, the market was busier than the previous one, lots more vendors and people looking for great finds.
Surprisingly, I couldn't find great deals! Well, not exactly good deals, but stuff that I was interested in. :( Nothing spoke to me, really, nothing! We headed back home with only two things in our hands, this chicken my daughter fell in love with. $1.
And these pretty ladies playing those instruments. It was my husband's pick.
We didn't find great things at the flea market, but we were really grateful with all the items given to us by one of our friends. He is moving out of state, he had already given my daughter some items I talked about right HERE. Well, we met him again, he's still packing up and getting rid of lots of stuff, many of those items came home with us, like this sled.
That was on of the items on my wish list. I love its design.
What I don't like is how it was stained. It looks kind of on the drab side all brown. I can see some letters buried underneath the stain, I would love to see them again. I wonder if I can take the stain away.
In some small places, the metal parts still hold the original red color, I would love to have more of that color too. Do any of you know how to get rid of stain on wood and metal without destroying the colors below the stain? I don't think it is possible, but who knows?!
My tool collection didn't have planes, I haven't use one of these guys since I was in high school. It was not easy to use them at that time, I'll see how it goes now. ;)
Last but not least, these pretty wooden wine boxes. I LOVE them! They are still there in the garage waiting for me to take them places :) Storage space is always welcome! I just need to find where.
I've been working on organizing spaces, the garage, the backyard, it feels good to have everything in its place and looking good. How about you? What are you working on right now?
My next post is about a project done in the backyard. Can't wait to share it with you!
