From my excursion I brought home another plate and candle holder. The plate's painted design was wearing off so managed to take it off from the center but I still need to scrape off the rest.
I loved its detail and knew I could turn it into another cake/dessert stand. My kids could not wait for me to take the picture before they started helping themselves...
I love them and am always on the look-out for good, vintage hangers. I love their lines, typography and hinges. They are usually well made and always have a nice, 'made in the USA' stamp. Love it.
Not only do I use them for clothes but the main reason is that I like to use them to hang up the artwork that Reese so proudly brings home. It's easy and looks cool. It doesn't hurt that he likes it too. Who knew a .25 cent purchase could make someone so happy?
Self portrait - spot on.
And rounding us out are these sweet, little school chairs.
I couldn't pass them up.
I am a sucker for kids' items and chairs top my list. When I won't be using these as picture props they will be used by three of my little ones, whom have already struck their claim, but they are sturdy enough for adults.
Surprisingly heavy too.
I still need to finish cleaning them up but they've already been used to reach the sink, sit on to read a book, look out the window and have been pulled up to the ottoman for snack time (and to watch the yellow sponge of course.)
I'm already planning my next trip and look forward to seeing what's in store, especially now that flea market time is here. If you make any great finds, let me know and if you have any questions on an item or how to re-purpose it, just ask. I'm sure we can put our heads together and think of something.
