Saturday I went junking with my two sisters in hopes for great finds for myself as well as Ethel Edith.  Well there definitely was success! 

My sisters & I were kicking ourselves for not taking pictures of this place, but it was an unheated top level of a very old building.  The roof was all slanted boards, and missing quite a few pieces to the ceiling.  It was definitely a hot spot to say the least.

I came home with these babies...

I paid $31 total for these two large galvanized tubs.  I was thrilled to say the least - I love anything that could potentially give me tetanus!

The plan came from the lovely Mary.  I think I'm going to fill these up with lights & large branches for my party patio.  It's full sun out there & usually a concrete wasteland.  I have a hard time keeping plants alive out there, however branches won't die on me!  I already have Christmas lights for night lighting & I have a few more galvanized tubs to fill with flowers.  I think I have a great plan in mind so far!

I also scored this bad boy for $3.

I know here you are thinking - why?!?  Well my Mom has one, and let's just say it looks IDENTICAL to someone I know and love very much.  He's an older man & it just cracks us up that it looks just like him.  So this is going in with my salt & pepper shaker collection.  I couldn't pass it up.

Beyond this, we had a great day meeting some blogging friends for lunch.  Then, a trip to TJ Maxx always tops off the day in a nice way.  I have new bath towels - woot woot!  It was an overall great day.  Please go over to Ethel Edith to see more of our adventures!
