Sidewalk Sunday!


This post is much later than I planned!!

 I met up with some old friends from high school for lunch this afternoon.

That's me in the hat! It's been 20 years since I've seen these girls ;)

       I had such a great time, I ended up staying longer than I thought I would!

      So before it's no longer Sunday, let's quickly look at the newest Treasures.

 First up is this trunk I got from a friend of the family Sheila.

 I'm making over her patio for her so while I was there taking measurements she was cleaning up her garage and decided to give me this gorgeous treasure!!

Here's a peek inside,

Not sure how old it is?

She also gave me a side table

It matches the coffee table I got from my first estate sale.

She also had this vintage Grey Hound wagon,

I know there are a few of you that would love to call this "mine"
She'd look great in the garden with some flowers right?

Lately it seems to be all about the vintage sign.

This is a vintage metal sign that she also had laying around!

There were also some other great knick knacks she was kind enough to "donate to the cause"
but for some reason the photo wants to load sideways??

I figured, I made you wait long enough, I really don't want to make you jump through hoops to view a photo!

Anyhow, I'm guessing that this curb shopping is somewhat contagious because...

This is what Mr. Treasures came home with yesterday! It's actually 2 trunks. I was just to lazy to move the top one of to take separate photos!

Aren't they gorgeous???

He was driving Lil' Red to Grandma's house when he saw these being dragged out to the curb.
He's so cute! He stopped and talked to the lady for a bit and got the background info.

I guess her MIL is a bit of a hoarder so they were "helping" her get organized.
Which meant, throwing out most of what she owned.
He said "Do you mind if I take a photo and send it to my wife? I think she'd want these."

If I keep writing all of this nice stuff about him, I'm going to have to do a post of all the things he does to tick me off- just to balance everything out! ;)

I almost forgot, I'm going to try REALLY hard next week to get as much as I can done!
For starters,
I  need to start showing some of the transformations!

Also Rayan over at The Frugal Designer is having a GREAT giveaway!

It's really a refreshing change from the normal giveaways!
There are several ways to enter but one of them is submitting a project and receiving votes.
So I'd like to see what I can come up with for it!

So there's that and I got an email from a friend about a boutique sale she wants to have in June


Enjoy what's left of your Sunday!!

Yes, that Mr Treasures guy is awesome. I can tell you he never thought he would be asking someone for their TRASH, but after the first piece of trash he picked up turned out to be his favorite piece EVER...he too was hooked!! Her deserves all the praise he gets, cause he sounds awesome.

Cat@BudgetBlonde said...

Mom2AngelBoys said...

La Dolfina said...

You are becoming quite the treasure hunter... a girl after my own heart:)
I adore the old metal sign and Grey Hound wagon!! Way to go Angie :)

Rose said...

I am seriously drooling over all your treasures! LOVE the greyhound wagon (being a greyhound owner makes this esp. dear to me)
I have a Radio Flyer wagon I use for a planter. Never saw a grey wagon.
You really scored big at your friends house. Wish she were my friend!
And, I'm so impressed that your hubby brought you home those trunks. Mike would never in a million years add to my collection.
You're so lucky!
Drooling and green with envy, Rose
