Popping in quick to say hello and to show you some estate sale finds I picked up yesterday... I shared these photos on Instagram... do you follow me there? Please do :)
Yesterday, I picked up this old ladder from a garage filled with goodies...
There were two ladders at the sale. I grabbed this one and another lady grabbed its mate. She was giving me the stink eye about the ladder I grabbed. I was lucky to get this one with the cross supports...
It was the prettier of the two!
I'm on the lookout for another...
for the other side of the fireplace.
I also found this old galvanized clip on light...
It works perfectly and it's dents
are so charming to me...
The ladder and light
came from the same garage
and I love
that they are married together now...
Where else do you find a lamp for $3??
it was a bundle sale
with this canvas bag thrown in.
Some sort of military bag.
I have no idea what it once held...
Thought it would be cute
with holiday greenery coming out of it..
Which may nor may not happen this year.
In the living room,
I have been enjoying
my Staghorn Fern!
It requires very little care
and doesn't seem to mind
the Northern exposure!
Instead of covering the plant soil with moss,
I used some wood slivers
I picked up at the Christmas Tree lot.
They add a bit of the season
and fill out this small plant...
and they smell divine!!
You can get these wood slivers
at Home Depot
if you ask really nice and smile big!
I would like to take a moment to honor
This week, she lost her battle with cancer.
I met Ruthie about three years ago from my blog. She was a reader and lived in my town... She asked for a personal tour of my house and I invited her over. As soon as I met her, we became fast friends.
Even in the face of adversity, Ruthie was always looking to brighten another person's day! Here she is, last year, in my kitchen. She had received this arrangement of "flower puppies" and decided to share them with my good friend, Camille, who is also battling cancer. It was just so Ruthie, always thinking of others. Camille loved the arrangement and it made Ruthie so happy. Anyone that knew Ruthie loved her. I will really miss her.
If you would like to know more about Ruthie, you can visit her Cottage which was featured on The Old Painted Cottage. Click here for the tour
I purchased this tiny
at one of Ruthie's sales
which benefited cancer...
I have it displayed
in a bird's nest
I will always
think of Ruthie
when I see it ~
Please take time to hug your loved ones!
Thank you for visiting my friends!
