~ Auctions & Yardsales ~

Went to a couple of yard sales this morning and founds some cool books and the two below wooden folding chairs ($2 each) - I love them - I am trying to decide what I want to do with them, clean them and leave them as they are, which I kind of like - they are worn in looking. Or, should I sand them and paint them with crazy colors, like each wooden slat a different color, or what ... leave me a comment and let me know. I kind of like them as they are, but painting them would be fun too.

And last night Gary and I went to an auction and I bought the below quilt. I like the butterflies .. kind of old fashioned looking. It was hand stitched, etc. The edges were frayed, but I couldn't see that from where I was sitting, I paid $14 - did I pay too much? I washed it with clorox and Gain in hot water, then washed it again in just Gain and put it in our camper. I also bought a whole box of sewing mishmash, which I will probably need some of to stitch up the frayed edges of the quilt :)

Tropical colors would look great. Aqua, pinks, corals, yellow. Maybe you could find some pink flamingos and they could all be outside in a nice little grouping. Nice buy.

Love the quilt. Don't paint the chairs. I love natural wood.
