The first few were so so.
I found a pair of soft leather John Deere cowboy boots for Lynden to wear this winter. <3
And if the day had ended there, we would have been satisfied.
$1 spent. Tons of fun conversation in the car with Ryder.
But then we happened across an awesome estate sale.
Barns full of old junk, tables laden with a things we didn't even know still existed.
Haha, what a blast!
Of course, by this time Ryder was getting just a little bit tired and we were in desperate need of a potty, so we snagged a few winners and headed out.
Ryder was so excited about his 'new' metal Tonka cement mixer and roller.
I picked up a few antique Christmas tree ornaments and a vintage beautifully made romper - if we ever have a girl - and no, I'm not pregnant. ;)
All in all, our morning was a great success.
We will definitely be venturing out to hunt for more treasure again soon!
My latest project at home is repurposing an old wooden door that I picked up for free from a girl in town. I have a mirror frame that I tried to paint while Braden was on deployment - big fail! Since the poor mirror has been sitting in a box in our garage, I thought the window frame from the door would be just the perfect new frame for the mirror.
Braden told me I was on my own on this one - I don't blame him!
Pardon the pliers. Ryder was 'helping' me work on this one.
