I know, I know it's been a while! So SORRY! Leah and I have been super busy! (YAY!) Between designing weddings, building a barn, fabulous pickin' trips, and TOP secret projects, I have lost track of time. I realized yesterday it had been way too long since my last blog post and wondered why in the world I hadn't talked about the amazing purchases we've made lately. This shopping frenzy started about 2 weeks ago. Leah and I went to Luverne to finally get the twin to one of our awesome mirrors that she spotted months ago. We were thrilled to see it was still there and of course we found a few other items we "needed".
The next day, mom, my sister in law Sara, Leah, and I decided to wake up at the crack of dawn, head to Montgomery, and hit up as many yard sales as possible. IT POURED!! Not like a little sprinkle of rain but FLOODED! We didn't let the downpour stop us. We still managed to fill mom's catering van FULL of precious junk. Scores for the day included a miniature white wicker doll set to put in our booth at Eastbrook, an adorable $2 wooden cake plate, antique drawers, and a great wooden rocker.
As if we didn't collect enough goodies that weekend, the following Monday Leah spotted an old house barn near her home that was about to be torn down. We couldn't let that happen without getting our hands on what was sure to be treasure. She made some calls and got permission. So, that afternoon we talked our hubbies into going on a little hunt (they were thrilled). We found some great drawers, an AWESOME barn door, vintage table legs, and plenty of chippy paint wood pieces.
Leah finished the frenzy this past week on a couple of solo trips. On Mother's Day, she managed to find an abandoned house in Union Springs to plunder through.
For me, the BIGGEST score of them all came from Leah's estate sale trip on Monday! Two matching chairs. I am IN LOVE with these. Sorry folks! You won't find these for sale at our booth. You can count on seeing them in upcoming weddings (of course not as regular chairs! ;)
DRUMROLL please.........I did promise to let you in on a big purchase we made. We are now the proud owners of 8 GORGEOUS antique church pews! Thanks to my sweet dad and his friend Michael they are waiting for us to go get them in Florence. Leah and I decided LeRae needed a roadtrip (great blog post for later) and we could "pick" all the way from Alabama to South Carolina! Sounds like another frenzy!
