Stuff it in a Sack……

More fun with furniture and sacks today….just realized I had sold all my outdoor furniture, and invited people for xmas….whoops…..so off to the local op-shop in search of outdoor chairs….and this is what I found…..

OK…… I will admit not the most attractive chair in the world…..but there was 4 of them, and they are made by Sebel and solid as commercial office furniture of the 80’s was…..and they were dirt cheap…$15 for 4 of them…..all i really needed was something to put on the veranda, watch the sunset over the hills and drink long island ice tea’s with guests over the xmas break….I cant paint the frames today due to weather….but I think they will make a very comfy place to watch the world roll by when done…..

Take a Seat Gentleman……

Love it when two separate purchases are made for each other…..a vintage deck chair without canvas, and a pile of coffee sacks that were to good to pass up bought two weeks before…..Big needle time…

And another lucky purchase….a set of balance scales….no weights means I have something to do with all the little bottles I have….make crystal weights with colour liquids and vintage weight labels….

Stuck in a Moment….

Lets just stick to the good bits….. found some interesting bits and pieces…… and had a nice salad…. the end…

oh….I am reading a great book filled with sharp bits of metal and dead animals…..lots of fun for a decorating “bible”….Thanks Jane at Plain Jane Styling (you can follow her much prettier blog by looking to the right in My Blogs List)…..

Let’s Have That one Bronzed!!!!…..

What a great day….garage sale went of without a hitch….made more money than I can comfortable jam in my wallet….even after buying the kids (and myself) a Playstation 3 with a big pile of games, I can pay electricity, and everything else with enough left for “pushing the barge out” at xmas…. I chatted, I sold stuff, I chatted, I sold stuff….all good, all very good….Had my Dad and M here to help, the kids were great and my sales patter must be rubbing off on the boy. He has a wonderful ability to get the ladies to smile. The Big yellow chairs I bought Last week left today….almost 6 days….hmmmm that’s some short lived furniture….if i was better at maths I could work out the percentage of profit….1000% I think…. Did I mention it was a great day? Been a wonderful weekend having the kids here has been great too….We went out got takeaway….curled up on couch watched giant TV…. Sponge bob marathons, Tome and Jerry and now Lava Girl and shark boy…..There has been two large bowls of fresh popcorn, and the house smells wonderful…..

I was going to take a picture when I first started the sale, but to be honest there really wasn’t time….it’s a shame there must have been twenty people chatting and buying it would have made a good photo……

Don’t Cry for me Marge and Tina….

No tears at all…..from them or me….great school concert…. Now I don’t know why I have been avoiding them…. Chats and fun and happy smiling kids…. So many hugs and smiles, i may be a little high from them…. a good day….
