|My sister-in-law's front porch... Love the color, love the whimsy!|
|Her covered porch is festooned with Japanese lanterns, twinkling dragonfly lights, Mexican parrot carvings, vintage furniture, potted plants, and--I'm sure you've noticed--|
I've just returned from an overnight visit with my sister-in-law Claudia, and the kitchen table is now loaded with the results of two days' worth of estate and garage sale hunting. Yippeeee!!! It was a banner interlude.
Claudia was pleased to score (among dozens of other things) a kitschy little donkey figurine and a vintage windchime...
...and I snared the big kahuna of a pair of glittery gold celluloid art deco period Christmas reindeer for (wait for it!) ten cents apiece!!!
This is just the beginning of the treasures I hope to be able to share. Most will be listed in the shops eventually but only after I've had the thrill of fondling and gloating over them all for a while first. These deer are NOT going anywhere, though, but will join my ever-burgeoning herd.
Your lack of surprise is noted.
