i dragged mae down to a garage sale at the uniting church in williamstown this morning and MAN, am i glad i did! we found some serious gold.
absolutely gorgeous vintage rocking horse in spectactular condition, complete with mohair tail and leather ears intact for... wait for it... FIVE DOLLARS. i couldn't give my money to the guy fast enough, let me tell you.
and from the same seller i snagged this cute little kid's chair for $1. it needs some surface rust removal and to be reupholstered but hey, who am i to turn down yet another project?
i also found this super cute "cubby house tent" for $8. it's never even been opened and i think it will be so fun in the backyard this summer. baxter will love it even if mae doesn't : )
and a bunch of succulents for $1 each, plus the man gave me an extra one "for the baby" which was so bey0nd sweet. i also picked up three oil paintings of australian landscapes for $1 each and two books for mae for 10¢ each. just craziness, i tell you. i drove out of there with the biggest smile on my face, just giddy. the smile has stayed on there pretty much all day despite mae having a bit of a fever and a bit of the crankiness that goes with it. here's hoping she wakes up better tomorrow as we have a 1st birthday party to go to that i've really been looking forward to...
