INSIDE JEANNIE'S BOTTLE

I like to write about decorating projects and remembrances of my childhood on Balaclava St.

Accidental Junkin'

This past weekend I intended just to check out an estate sale near my house, but circumstances kept having me stumble onto other yard sales and before Saturday was over I had spent a grand total of $46 on some sweet deals.

Such as:

An un-used bread maker, for the Spud, and

a green glass bottle for me;


 
a little storage bench



TWO BLUE JADITE BOWLS
FOR 50 CENTS EACH

Yes, 50 cents!
They were stacked in amongst lots of old pots, but
I have the instincts of a truffle-seeking pig when
it comes to great finds.


Lesseee.....oh, yeah, I got
a chair for $2
and some shutters


I was going to paint the chair but
the worn patina grew on me,
especially after I had washed
it in vinegar and water, then
polished it with baby oil.


I think the Baby will want this one.


The final purchase of the weekend was
four of these:


Four antique Bentwood chairs for $20

My sister says I have an antiquing angel
hanging with me.
