I did it again...

UPDATE:  What do you think I should do with the chair?  Slipcover?  Been there, done that.  I'm thinking of trying my hand at reupholstering it.  I mean, really, why not??  What do you think???

...I hauled home another old chair.  I just can't resist!  Especially when the price is right - this one was $10 and it is a heavy, old, well-made chair.  Travis even likes it!  I emailed him at work and told him I went to a couple garage sales and he would be just delighted with what I brought home:)  His response: 'If it needs worked on I might get to it by 2012.' !!!! He is just a tad bit overwhelmed with projects right now and I informed him that I wouldn't do that to him.

Really liking this old metal can.  I've got an idea for our 4th of July party.  If it all comes together I will show you in a couple of weeks:)
'The Sisters' found some old dress gloves and wooden bowls that they HAD to have.  No idea where they get a trait like that.
I have an ongoing love for old picture frames, and I found a pile of them today:)  So fun to find them cheap - I paid $7.10 for all of these together.
Big Sister found this box.  She wants to use it to pretend it is Josephina(one of her American Girls dolls) treasure box.  After we got it she discovered that it says 'Haiti' on the top.
And a couple tiny old bottles.  The one on the left says 'Little Boy Blue' around the top in raised letters.

I drove by your house the other day and saw some of this stuff sitting outside. I was hoping there would be a blog post about it! Looks fun!!

I wouldn't be able to pass up those wood bowls either! And that bucket is making my heart pitter patter. Can't wait to see what you do!

Those little wooden bowls are neat! I love that chair! I think you should reupholster it and give it to me for my birthday!!!! You probably don't have room for it anyway! =) {like I do!!}

Hmmmm. That IS an idea little Sis!! And how would you reupholster it? you know, just in case I found another one?
Hubby said it needs to be a winter project and since he HAS reupholstered stuff before and I would probably appreciate his help I'll probably be waiting till winter. Until then I can look for stuff to reupholster it with:)
