While I was not able to get out much these past couple weeks, my trusty van is proving difficult to diagnose, even by the most gifted of mechanics, there is one sale I like to attend every year if at all possible. It benefits Sheltie Rescue, is held at a nearby fairgrounds, and dog people from all over donate to the cause. I tend to donate by buying too much.
Although we got a late start this morning, and it was the final half day of the sale, if there was any chance I could get there, I was determined.
The thrifting gods smiled upon me.
I will show much more of my bounty in the next few days, but for this post we will feature things I found in the golden and yellow tones, as well as having an outdoor purpose.
I am happy to announce that this post will link up with Yard Art Thursday at Work of the Poet (home to Ruby Tuesdays)
and Twice Owned Tuesdays at House of Grace
and Nifty Thrifty Tuesday at Coastal Charm.
To the untrained eye, it may appear as fly swatters and a giant bug.
But bee honest, who could resist this face?
More faces, these a bit harder to capture on camera in their raw state.
Can you see more detail?
They will be an experiment in some sort of stone finish painting.
I guess besides the color these finds also have faces in common.
The cat’s eyes are driveway marker reflectors. It came from a free box.
I am not sure if the placques will be for the ground or wall.
I’ll continue the story tomorrow.
Does anyone have a suggestion for faux stone paint?
Any brand or shade you are happiest with?
