~junk in my trunk and a winner~

Howdy friends.
I'm back to show you all the junk
I stuffed in my trunk at farm chicks.
First up we have a green sap bucket.
{I feel like I am a host on a game show}

Best part of all was that after my husband volunteered last night to
take Cody to karate class, he came home with these flowers for me!
So sweet.
He must still be trying to make up for being gone
on a guys trip mothers day weekend.

I love these chairs! I wish there were more than 2.
They will sit around our fire pit outside for now, but they could
easily be pulled inside for extra seating.

Hopefully no one will get rust on their butts.

I think this stool will end up outside, however I think it
would be a nice addition to the kitchen as it is the
perfect height for Cody when he helps me make cookies.

It's totally rusted and has a great blue/grey color to it.

Love the legs.

I got this fun kitchen towel from Theresa Sheeley.
This will be a "show" kitchen towel, no kids hands on it!
I'm so mean.

A metal chippy tray.
No clue what it's for yet, but I couldn't pass it by.

The first thing I bought was this old mirror for $10.
Someday I want to do a whole wall like this.

morning latte?

I kept going back over and over to this and finally just gave in.

I just loved the shape and the cute little flowers on it!

Don't know where this is going either.......
but I now own something from her!

I bought a couple burlap sacks to make pillows out of.

This is something I'm going to be working on, but you
don't get to find out what it is yet, you'll just have to wait and see!

And this is yet another thing that you will have to wait and see.
I'll give you a hint though.
It has to do with bunny rabbits!

Well, that's all folks!
I didn't buy a ton and I think the most expensive thing I bought was $39.
I probably would have bought more but that friend I went with
{not naming any names}
took up all the space in my car with her purchases!
Oh, the winner of the burlap runner giveaway is...........

Love all the treasures you purchased! I especially love the old cabinet door with the little flowers...maybe a chalkboard or corkboard inset, or even a mirror? Can't wait to see what you do with it.

The Little Red Shop said...

Fun stuff! I didn't know that I actually saw you at the show until your first post. Ha! It was a blast, wasn't it?!

I still have all my "finds" on the diningroom table while painting/fixing up the Studio in "This Old Basement,,,,,Circa 1900's!"

What a great show! I love your pics at Chaps,,,,,you are too cute!

Stay dry! Yeah, right!


Robyn said...

I SO LOVED pouring over your photos! I have been looking for a stool just like THAT! LOVE it! YOU have great finds there! DYING to see what they mystery goodie is? A rabbit hutch?

OHHH BTW, I have a sap bucket hanging on an angle from the buffet wall of my pergola. I keep a potted plant in it but when we have a party, I put ice in it and a bottle of white wine! It's pretty and useful!

Anne Lorys said...

Wow Melanie, your finds are simply crusty, rusty perfection!

I've been seeing pics of you at Farm Chicks on other blogs, you look absolutely darling! Such a pretty girl! :-)

So good to see you again, Melaine! Fun treasures you found at FC! I'm glad you had a good time. Hope I get to see you sooner rather than later. Barn House flea, perhaps? Seriously, gather your gal pals and come, you'll love it!

That show looks like it is so much fun! Love all your treasures and I love all the necklaces your friend picked up.
