My day yesterday started out with a big *sigh* ~ as I detest running errands..
I did end the day feeling quite accomplished, though!
I started the day out about 10am, and finally finished my running around at around 3:30pm.
No sence in going home, Mr. Ruffles doesn't get home until 5:30pm, so, I figured I had time to kill at a couple of thrift stores. (I even squeezed in some time at a local antique mall) Man o man, I am glad I did! Wait.. just wait till you see what I found and took home with me!!
No furniture ~ althought I really wanted to buy a couple of peices ~ I showed Mr. Ruffles my finds last night and he says, "I thought you weren't buying anymore until you had some of the other done?" I corrected him and said, "No.. I said I wouldn't buy anymore FURNITURE until I had some of the other done.." hehehe!!!
Ok, without further ado, my thrifting finds yesterday:
Gorgeous shabby rose platter with gold trim
AWESOME turquoise enamel ware
Letter holder & gold mirror frames (yep, gonna paint these!)
White wire basket
Check out the cool pink phone!
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!
It's a note card and pen holder. The middle says, "Dial Me"
3 little Homer Laughlin plates
Another close up pic of the phone
and I wrapped these blue colored vintage books in burlap
Wine bottle corks
Huge bag of buttons
Vintage Pink thread
Galvanized flour scoop
Galvanized tall pail
Insert Happy Dance here!!!
And, I found this set of skeleton keys at the Antique Mall.
I finished the day off by texting Mr. Ruffles he needed to take me out to dinner. We ate a pretty awesome restaurant that is set up on the beach of a small lake nearby, and ate outside. ahhhh... :)
