When you L-O-ve to thrift and decorate, you tend to recycle them quickly. Over the summer, I couldn’t find a great weekend to have a garage sale. The weekend I had free was rodeo weekend, and I knew that would detract from the little bit of traffic that one finds attending your garage sale in the middle of a corn field anyway.Then I had my ‘aha’ moment. Why not take my garage sale to the flea market! I don’t enjoy refolding clothes at a garage sale anyway, so I dropped those off at Goodwill and took only my decorative items. It was S-O much FUN to see people find what was once a found treasure to me, plus…all my profits made my new treasures FREE! (well – sort of)
I had the picture long before we had Penny, but it’s a pretty close resemblance…
For now it’s a “ahem…” beverage station, but I can’t wait to put it to better use as a breakfast bar, coffee and tea nook, or hor’doeurve station (yes it’s spelled correctly. I “googled” it.Sisters – mark it down. I had to look it up).
I had a different table under it, but I didn’t L-o-ve it. Last weekend at the horse sale I stole this table for $9 from some dear old man looking for a bargain work bench --- what a shame to hide this thing in a garage. I saved it’s life.
I L-O-ve the table with it, and it’s almost time to play for FALL!
You can tell how well prepped I am for pictures by the votive still laying there, but our candle-lit supper was calling – it’s a fun family tradition I don’t want to miss!
