Fresh Pickins

We hit the road over the weekend. It was time to go pickin'! After too many months of outrageous cold and snow, this weekend held the promise of warmer weather. Lots of rain, even some flooding, but we felt we could dodge it all and we did.


We hit an auction, a flea market, and an antique shop. Pickin'...you are never limited and it can always be a fun, interesting adventure. You never know what you'll find or even if you will find anything. It's all about the hunt.


As you can see, we were able to walk away with some rust & crust & weathered & worn treasures at each of our stops. The history and the unknown story of each piece intrigues me. I always wonder what the previous owners were like and where geographically these items have been. As pickers, we embrace it all and look forward to passing these items on for a new and useful life. Time to appreciate what simpler times had to offer.

Until next time...
Have a pickin' cool day,
Cindy

Hi Cindy - Love your new finds. I especially like the canister and stool. Oh and the stamp holder too. Feels good to get out, doesn't it? It was a rough one!
