I found true FMF gold on the footpath this week!!!
(It wasn't even curbside collection week!)
Could not believe my eyes as we drove past these on our way home from school.
Two lovely yellow Casala outdoor chairs with a sign that spoke to me and I therefore spoke back to it.
"Yep, would love to take you babies home!"
Just plain lovely and just what is needed around here.
The Bunning's $10 outdoor chairs have had their day.
The challenging quest is now on to find more of these at a price that suits the Accountant.
The Accountant has surprisingly discovered great joy in scrubbing and polishing these chairs after I mentioned perhaps getting them resprayed or recoated with something($$).
They have come up a treat.......
I am still in a state of disbelief!!!
Thanks to Brismod for her meticulous, well researched advice on how to bring them back to life.
It was sport free Saturday yesterday so we decided to do a little road trip to a lovely little town called Pomona.
The town was abuzz with activity: markets, antique fairs, and day before anticipation of 'King of the Mountain'. (A gruelling 4.5km run up a mountain)
All the local thrift shops were open and we discovered these gorgeous old Nancy Drew books. Bargain at 50 cents each. Ella used to love these timeless novels.
I have a thing for flying ducks at the minute.
The birds are a bit pricey, so couldn't pass up this lonely cheap one in the Antique store.
Will keep an eye out for more but they do seem pretty scarce.
I fell in love with this orange number at the Antique fair, amazing colour!!
Not sure why but this makes me think of cotton ball storage. Any other suggestions for usage would be appreciated.
