A week ago today we were on a whirlwind trip to Carrollton Ga. An old friend of mine who has been an antique dealer for about 30 years is getting ready to downsize and her unbelievable collection has to find new homes. I only wish I would have remembered to take pictures. But we arrived after 2 pm, worked our way through things until midnight with a late dinner break and were on our way back to TN by 7:30 Wed. morning. My camera never made it of the truck. Unless you could see it, you would not believe the scope of her collections in her 2500 sq. ft basement. To say that I blew my budget, filled our truck and still didn't make a dent in her "stuff" is an understatement. And there was so much more I was inerested in!!!
Here are images of not only some of what we brought home but everything else that is waiting to be worked on or in process.
Part of our back porch the morning after our arrival back home and unloading the truck.
Starting to sort through all the fabric "stuff"...this pile needs stain removal work.
A bolt of beautiful fabric! I figure somewhere between 15 - 20 yards.
Anyone interested in some fabric?
More sorting out of things
Bags still full...cutter quilts, barkcloth and lace...lots and lots of lace. Enough lace that I will be selling some of it online.
Some of the quilts, barkcloth and floursack towels I now have clean.
Taking care of musty smell. The clothesline is temporary...I am a dryer kind of woman. ;-)
Whats in the Barn
Some of the shelving and display racks that have been sanded and waiting for paint jobs. That box is full of old wood legs.
This old bed was actually brought to us by a neighbor...we're not sure yet what we'll do with it, soit waits in the barn.
What's in the Garage
My trusty compressor because I spray prime what is necessary and spray paint everything else. We spray out in the old garage for now but eventually will have a dedicated spray area in the barn.
More shelving waiting to dry
and more waiting to dry. You might recognize the table from a previous post of some yard sale finds. Already a wonderful improvement.
This is a display cabinet piece I just got at a yard sale and I have plans for this baby! I'll show you more about it later.
What's on the Worktable
Painted, glazed and drying.
So there you have it. What's been keeping me busy...besides all the computer stuff and trying to think about art projects too. LOL
Happy Tuesday my wonderfully artful friends!
