This past weekend, I only went to one garage sale - my friend Julie's.
Julie does garage sales to finance mission trips.
She has been to Africa and to harvest grapes in Israel as
a foreigner working the land to fulfill Biblical prophecy.
There was a sweet pair of mini finials. One of them went well with two larger
ones I already had on my book case. The other will go somewhere else.
I'm not sure where just yet, but it has "the look" I'm going for.
It may end up somewhere in the dining room.
I also found some fabrics to use somewhere:
One is a heavy denim like fabric in a creamy khaki color...
There's probably a yard or so - enouth to make pillows or cover a small chair...
The other is not really fabric, but vinyl. It's pretty cool!
Yummy silver and gold - so the effect is that lovely color you get when
you mix both silver and gold together - soft, yet still a little bling-ish!
Here's a close up...
It looks sort of like a platinum football, doesn't it?
It is not really glossy shiny, but it is metallic. I think it might make a
sensational padded headboard in my modern-primitive bedroom!
There are about 4 yards of it...so it may just work!
Then there were these adorable salt and pepper shakers.
I just got them because I liked them. They don't really "go."
(Meaning they're not white ironstone or pottery.)
But then again, nothing I have really "goes." So they'll work, too.
They're black on white - printed with tiny little maps that say,
"Carlsruhe" on them. Maybe they were
souvenirs of someone's European vacation...
I love Google! I just found out
Carlsruhe is a city in Germany. (Now Karlsruhe)
It was founded in 1715, and may be the city
our own Washington, D.C. was patterned after.
Karlsruhe considers itself to be the home of justice in Germany,
according to Wikipedia. Hmmmm. Interesting...
One last thing - though I didn't get these at Julie's garage sale.
Instead, last weekend I finally removed them from the trunk of my car,
since I had to make room put Dani and Jerry's luggage in there!
Three solid wood corbels, found at a thrift store a while back
for $4 each. Pretty cool, huh? Not sure how I might use them...
From my perspective, paint is always a good place to start.
Word for the Day:
He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the LORD require of you but to do justice,
and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
