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!
