i'm at my parents' house this weekend and having a grand old time!

just a sneak peak at a few things coming home with me, some for me, some for the shop.

old shoe crate turned nuts and bolts bin, from the town hardware that closed years ago. the owner was a friend of the family and gave a lot of stuff to my dad when the store shut down. this has been in my dad's barn for quite awhile. and he was only too happy to pass it along to me...there is something good on every side!

another view...love those cubbies!

view of the back

some wooden crates and a tackle box that will be going into the shop...

more fun things from the barn: old liquor bottles, military shaving mirror, wooden fiber and whalebone brush, glass Blue Coral Carwax jar, part of an old wooden cigar box, toothbrush holder, and an old padlock.

a few thrift store finds: mustard yellow suitcase, owl clock, four small framed prints, brass snail, silverplate bowl, and four melmac cups, all going into the shop eventually.

and i've got lots more stuff from the basement that i haven't photographed yet. it is going to be a busy week indeed!

any good thrifting finds for you lately??
