As promised!  Can you believe how the back seat of my truck was packed??? Told you we had a fun day!

Hi, All!  I know it's not time to even start THINKING about fall yet, but I just HAD to show you the cute fall sign I got Monday.  Sharon and I made the hike to the Market Square Cash and Carry.  Had a LOOONNNGGG but very productive day...we were on the road from 5:30 am until 11:30 pm!  We started out at the cash and carry in Oaks, PA, them made our way to CDM for their open house and customer appreciation day. 
I have to say, the cash and carry has more antiques every time we go.  I found a great primitive open front cabinet (will take before and after pics when I start working on it), and Sharon and I both got neat crates that someone had added shelves to to turn them into rustic display units. We also got LOTS of smalls.  I will post a picture of my truck post packing as soon as I get it from Sharon. We were really loaded to the hilt!
Hope you all are having a good week so far. By the way, Sharon is still attending her favorite auction almost every week so we are starting to get quite a stash!  I'll be back at Crumpton as soon as wheat cutting is done. Ciao!

Ever wonder if Sharon and I ever save anything from a pick or an auction for ourselves? If there is anything that we just really won't let you get your hands on? Well, yes. Sometimes we just get a piece or two that we just can't part with...or just can't part with until we get to use it for at least awhile ourselves. I have this cabinet from the Luckett's show...
It has been sitting in the middle of my dining room floor for about a week now.  I can't decide if I want to part with it because one, I love it and two, it matches my dining room perfectly. But I also (obviously) have no good place to put it unless I sell some other piece of furniture that I love.  And then there are these two chairs:

They came from the pick on Tuesday night and really, I had NO intention of keeping them...have had chairs like them before, and they sold pretty easily (they were cheap, too!) so I was ready to turn a quick dollar on them! I unloaded them from my truck on Wednesday and hadn't even put them away, figured they could go to one of the stores (too springy for the fall barn sale)in the next couple of days.  Well, I was working on my raised vegetable garden on Thursday, and scraped my leg pretty well on the rusty leg on one of them.  So I figured I'd better get them out of the way and the light bulb came on in my head...I could use these for tomato cages! I have used a NUMBER of unconventional items in the garden, and I think these seat less chairs worked out just fine!  What do you think???

Do you have any items in the garden that just work beautifully and really were NOT intended for the garden?  Oh...and Jan, the awesome lady that invited us over to pick (she's moving) had vintage pitch forks...LOTS of them...stuck in the soil as edging around a sweet flower bed outside the potting shed.  Still working on how I can get that baby moved to my house!!!

Hope you have a great week!
