Another thrift shop day

Still no actual
on the camper.

It is going to have to wait until the
first of November.
But for now,
I found these
great treasures
on a stop
at the
local mall.
St. Vincent de Paul
Kittanning, Pa
Loving that harvest color scheme!

A Freebie and Some Lights

I had to go to my Mom's Quilt Guild
how to make penny rugs.
On the way home,
I wandered.

I found a really cool antique shop
Butler, Pa.
Butler Antiques.
It was a little tricky to get to,
I managed to go down a one way street
the wrong way,
making a lot of people
really unhappy.

Finally found an illegal parking space,
risked getting towed. 
I found this picnic cooler. 

When I asked the price....
the nice man

What a nice gesture! 
To my surprise,
it still had the instructions for use
and a cute little catalog
inside it!

JWS got a plug on his travels today....

and we have lights!

Aren't these cool and retro? 

How do you like that feather sticking out.

I mean,
after all this was a hunting camp....
It will be removed soon!

What I am doing in the meantime....

Pinned Image

No, this is not mine.  Click here to go to the link!

and this site

Unfortunately, I am spending way too much time
drooling over everyone else's projects!

I love the colors in the pic above
but now I have to decide...
paint the interior
or leave it wood grain?

The Thrill of the Hunt

we attended
Autumn Leaf Festival.

As a side trip
we headed to this.

This little plaster decoration
screamed out
1960's to me.
I can see it on the camper wall now.
After I scrub, of course!

And then
as I was sitting here with coffee this morning,
I looked up and saw this.
I think that plaid cooler
may have to be moved to the
growing camper stash also!

And now
what I am really looking for is
set of these.

Gold or Green

Still hunting!

Trying Again

Ok, long silence...
a small amount of mourning.
A trip to the scrapyard,
the last camper did not make it.
As much as I had high hopes,
finally convinced me that it was not salvageable.

It has hung in the air between us for the past few months.
I still wanted a camper.
Not a new one,
not a big one.
Something old,
Something I could decorate.
Another project.
Then Tuesday,
JWS comes home from the fair meeting,
telling me that he might have a surprise for me.
I needled,
annoyingly begged
until he caved and told me.
There was another camper in the works.

If we didn't take it,
it also was going to be scrapped.
How bad could it be?

So we went and looked...
and decided to try again!

This one is not newer, but in really good shape inside and out.
As close as I can figure

So off to my favorite thrift store again
the picture at the top is the haul for today.
A vintage tablecloth
and we are up and running again.

It will be a great winter project.
For now,
it is in the garage.
I have to get
my craft open house i
behind me
trip to Florida
and then

I will be covering cushions

and painting

making curtains

of course,

scrubbing and cleaning.

I can't wait!
