Feeling Green

Junking 3 days last week means I have a carload of stuff. It will be coming out box by box for the next couple of days. Here's today's haul.

A wood ironing board, fab blue galvanized hopper, vintage gold hat perched on a vintage globe, green metal drop leaf table (on wheels!) and a vintage aluminium folding chair. The chair is really lightweight and will accompany me to my sales...providing a comfortable and stylish place to sit.

I was feeling very green as you can see...flower vases of all shapes and sizes, a sweet vintage velvet apple pincushion and a totally over the top cup and saucer. A milk glass jar, a marble urn with tiny birds and a vintage bracelet round out this still life.

This is one of my favorite finds...a "Table of Meat Cookery" trivet. It's in perfect shape and so charming. I love the gal giving her man a taste of dinner straight from the oven. Yeah, I usually wear a skirt and heels when I cook too!

You've certainly found some great stuff. Love the folding green table, and the ironing board - brings back memories of Mom ironing when I was a little girl.

My parents used to have one of those marble thingies with the birds. For some reason, when I was growing up I always thought it was an ashtray.

Cool finds! And the green on the typewriter table is really pretty. I've only seen them in drab gray.

I have the EXACT same cart up at my office! Except mine is black and holds my copier. I think I must take it home and spray paint it to make my area cuter!
