Let's go shopping:
Look at this amazing carved pillar tucked behind some wood. It's all naturally chippy and worn (and a little rotted) from the elements. I wanted this for my dining room, to lean casually against the wall. I wanted it Real. Bad. BUT Joy helped me focus and move on. You're welcome, Big Guy.
Next we found a giant box full of burlap coffee sacks for $1! We dug and sneezed...good times...
Just look at this row of school desks! Oh, if my kids were younger. I have a whole school room laid out in my head:
An old panel of ceiling tin, all chipped and naturally aged. Love the bird poop accent. This is cool:
And a BUNCH of vintage stadium/auditorium seats that would be so cool lining the wall of a man-cave style basement. I really loved these!
So, what did we get? Well, that would ruin the surprise, but I can say that I spent $14.50 that day. After scrounging around I was starving...Time for lunch!
What do you do when you're in the city and you're starving and you can't find a parking spot? Find a townhouse that is for sale and pretend you are a potential buyer and use the driveway as a parking spot while you run into Bruegger's Bagels for a sandwich!
Then snap a quick photo of the address for your Number Art project and hightail it out of there laughing and howling!
You still have one more day to join up with the Studio JRU sponsored Linky party! You could win an awesome gift certificate to spend it in Jennifer's Faith-Inspired Art Shop!
