HONESTLY, I WAS JUST GOING TO THE PAINT STORE


HONESTLY, I HAD NO INTENTIONS OF SHOPPING THIS WEEKEND FOR ANTIQUES AND TREASURES. I HAVE WAY TO MUCH TO DO GETTING READY FOR THE BARN HOUSE FLEA MARKET [LIKE HELLO-GET STUFF OUT OF OUR STORAGE UNITS TO SELL], AND  OF COURSE, HOUSE REMODEL STUFF. I WAS OFF TO THE PAINT STORE ONE LAST TIME ON SATURDAY AFTERNNON, PINKIE SWEAR, DONNA IS ABOUT TO PULL HER HAIR OUT WITH MY OBSESSION FOR SEEKING OUT THE PERFECT COLORS. PERFECT COLOR IS ANYTHING THAT DOES NOT REFLECT PINK, LEMON YELLOW OR ORANGE/RED WHEN THE LIGHT CHANGES ON THE WALLS OF OUR HOUSE. SO OFF TO THE PAINT STORE TO FIND YELLOW/GRAY UNDER NEUTRAL TONE PAINT. AND,  LOW AND BEHOLD, I FOUND NOT ONLY ONE BUT TWO HAND MADE ESTATE SALE SIGNS ON THE WAY TO THE PAINT STORE.

GEE-WHAT IS A GIRL TO DO WHEN SHE SEES THESE SIGNS-YOU GUESSED IT-I TURNED THE CAR AROUND SO FAST THAT I ALMOST GOT WHIP LASH AND HEADED TO THE SALES. YEP-I HAD GREAT IRONSTONE KARMA AGAIN!

ENJOY! XO DIANA

who could blame you, that stuff was just calling out to you"BRING ME HOME"
Such awesome finds, when I see a handmade sale sign I just keep on driving out here, there is never anything worth stopping for in this town.
Unless you are looking for 1990s chic, LOL!
Take care

When I see a homemade estate sign, everything else must wait, only wish I could find Ironstone like you. Thanks for the pics.

We know, we know, we know :o)
Isn't it awesome to get pointed to those treasures hunts
& then just wonder how it would be, to be some of those people that drives to the paint store & never get the urge to explore along the path??!!!!
Looking very much forward to see you at the Barn House Flea!

Wish I could find a load like this on an outing. Maybe because of extreme heat but pickins have been pretty slim the last month. Maybe next week. Jan
