Today was one of those winter day’s, the sun was sending down its warming rays & the sky was such a pretty blue, a day you just had to spare a moment or two outside to enjoy the fresh air……….
My weekend was spent doing the rounds of the Garage Sales.
I discovered these 2 old Jugs.
I think they will fit right in with my other treasure’s on “the shelf”.
And I was totally wrapped to find this bundle of old cutlery…….
Maybe a chime or two……
Oh no! “My mom say’s, you cant do that”, and then politely confiscates two of the table spoons and hints for her spoon chime that she hasn’t been given yet,lol.
I guess the cutlery will find a home out in my craft flat with the rest of the “Spoon Gunna become Chimes and or jewelery” box,
Sometimes when you go drapsing around people’s Yards you see the craziest things, like maybe this witch that just happened to be hanging around…………..
But she wasn’t for sale.
Much to the relief of Hubby
Of course I didn’t walk away empty handed,
Nuh uh not me….
A box of assorted cotton, Just what’s needed……for the “ummm” cotton draw!
As you can see it’s usually all about what I find, so I thought Id share with you one of my Hubby’s latest Bargain’s, “The Blower”.
Now even though I am not really too excited about this particular item I do see the value……..
Here we have the Handy Mans dream, a shed just before our local tip where one man’s Junk become’s another man’s treasure, before it hits the Rubbish Tip.
It is here that DH came across “the blower”, a few days back, lying amongst the rubble, Obviously it had been tested by many hands as the starter cord had just about been pulled clean out of its casing, to me it looked like a useless piece of Junk, but to my DH it was a symbol of Hope……………….
And so after purchasing it for $5.00 it was put in the back of the Ute & taken to its new home in the Back shed.
I didn’t see DH for a few days,
He became a little bit like a Dr Frankenstein reviving the monster,
Thankfully his faith in being able to resurrect the “blower” was well founded, and now it Purr’s like a Kitten and starts perfectly every time.
“Usually every afternoon after work”
I’m so lucky to have a clever Man that does actually know a bargain when he see’s it. And knows how to tinker things back to life….
Did I mention he’s picked up a new/second Hand Kitchen sink.
Before I go, remember I showed you my knitted purse that I was working on???
Finally another Item on the to finish/make is marked off the List…………
Tomorrow is the last day of freedom before the kids return to school, so I’ll be busy making sure everything is in order.
