More Finds

My Mom called me the other day wondering if I was okay.  She said that I haven’t been blogging much lately and she was worried about me.  My Mom lives less than 5 minutes from me and keeps up with what I’m doing by reading my blog.  I’m such a bad daughter .  I guess I should call my Mom more often. 

I have been busy doing lots of things.  Had so much fun last Saturday at the Barn House sale.  It was great seeing everyone, and so fun to see the show from the working side, as opposed to the shopping side.  The weather was so beautiful and customers came and shopped like crazy. I didn’t take one picture, but of course, lovely Isabel did.  You can see them here.

I have been doing a little shopping myself and have picked up a few things here and there.

Got this cute pink cabinet at a church sale last week.


Found this cabinet


and this one


and this one


from a sweet gal on craigslist.


This project vanity was found at a garage sale I just happened by while out shoe shopping with my number one girl. The little end table on top I found at a thrift store, and the box with the drawer (actually an older cash box) was found at a Monday garage sale.  I also got a bunch of furniture casters there too for cheap.

Here’s what else I’ve been doing.

*bringing new finds into my mall spaces

*golfing and lunch with a good friend to celebrate her birthday

*attempting to clean house and tackle the giant pile of laundry that never seems to go down

*helping hubby paint the almost finished garden shed

*playing hours of jewels on my droid phone (my hubby got me addicted to it)

I can’t believe it’s Friday already, Wow! I hope you all have a great weekend.  I’ll be continuing the cleaning house thing and hopefully will squeeze in a little time to work on some projects. TTFN!

You are truly a vintage furniture magnet! I had a little laugh about your mom calling because a friend did the same thing to me...I guess I didn't really realize not posting might be a worry to some. Have a great weekend Lisa. :-)

Great finds Lisa! Where do you find the room to put them all?! Looks like you're going to be busy!

Florence said...

Miss you. I know we can get so busy, oh the cleaning, not on the priority list, but a must. Oh to the creating, so much more fun. Have a great weekend. Hugs Florence

My mom does the same thing! Of course, she lives down in Florida (I'm in VA). And, when we talk, I KNOW she has my bog open, because she'll say "did that red thing sell? I love that vignette" etc. It's hysterical!
