Treasures to Share

Oh happy day!!! I am lovin this sunshine!!!
Wanted to share some of my finds from this weekend.
Got this bucket O' rocks at a local garage sale. I love metal buckets and the rocks will find a new home in my back yard.
Here is a buffet that Mike and I went to Gresham and picked up. Buyers beware. I asked the woman selling it how long it was. She had told me 53 inches. No problem, that will fit in my Subaru!!! WRONG. She had mis-measured and it was more like almost 70 inches long. Mike and I had to move the front seats all the way up to the windshield which made getting home a real challenge especially when I had to shift!!!! And Pee!!!!

Look at the detail on this drawer....It was a real steal!!!!

Tight Fit...

Here is a bench that I had bought yesterday that was a hideous honey pine color...YUK
It got the shabby white treatment and looks superb!

I got this dresser last week. When I looked at it online it looked a lovely ivory color. Low and behold when I went to pick it up saw it was a mustard color which is growing on me.. I did take my sander to it and gave it some distressing.

I love this old coffee grinder. Still had some coffee in it. Not sure what language this is, anyone want to take a shot at it???

It is a real jewel.
Hope you all have a fantastic Memorial Day.
Here's to the RED, WHITE & BLUE

Hi there,
Your coffee grinder is most likely Dutch, from Holland. I have a similar one in red & white!
Take care :o)
