Back To The Beach

Back to the beach I went! This time it was just 
my friend and I alone(no husbands). We headed down to the waters edge
to gaze at the super moon before we hit the bed and out thrifting 
the next day!

some of my finds.
I love these little pin cushions and for .50 it's a deal.

I bought the lamp had the lamp shade.
It now lives on my counter.

A couple of sheep from a creche I think, they are clay 
I paid 1.00 

Small metal animals I will use with my Christmas
paper houses.

A old balsam bag. I am going to take it apart and 
dump out the old balsam. I have new to replace it.
But so dang cute!
(kind of sums me up having a hard time sleeping)

A bicycle basket, I pulled a old bicycle out of the dump
a long time ago and this will fit nicely filled with flowers or herbs.

This is my project! It think in the end it will be great.
This is an old butter churn that was stored in a basement.
It has issues I do have the lid that fits and the crank handle, but for 10.00 I knew I could do something great.
Behind this topiary wire is a bread board that matches the 
old butter churn. Then my wheels started churning.

A dowel will go through the holes in the paddles and hold
the hand crank on. Some cleaning up, attach the bread board for the top and voila you have an amazing one of a kind side table! 
You can use the open paddle side for storage of magazines, wool etc. What do you think? I will show it when we get it all fixed up.
I also got lots and lots of clothes I am wearing the brooks brothers shorts today now for 2.00 that is a deal!

After I dragged myself home from the beach we headed to story land with Miss B and her parents. It was a nice hot day and guess who got into a water fight on one of the water rides? Yep B's parents and her pepe. And they were very proud of themselves for it too.:)

While at the beach I met a blogger!Fuzzy Slippers Designs, Moriah.
It was so funny they are related to my close friends and while they were at the beach they stopped by. My friend was on the phone so I answered the door and who do I recognize? Their sweet new puppy. It is always so nice to meet other bloggers.
Well I have been long winded enough I hope everyone is surviving the storms, we are very humid not the normal weather for us.
So it is very hard to get motivated for anything. I am on my 
porch and I think I will hang out a while longer listen to music and read.

What amazing finds! That churn was a steal.
What fun to meet another blogger. I have met some and it feels like we've known each other forever.
Our weather here is cool, almost chilly and tomorrow it is supposed to be even a little cooler. Perhaps the cooler weather is heading your way.
Hugs :)

Sounds like the perfect day, beach and great finds.

Wow, you got lots of stuff at the dump. Very cleaver idea about the churn table. I would have never thought of that.

Yes, I agree that meeting bloggers in person is wonderful.

It humid here too and it's hard to get motivated and it's hard on my husband's asthma.

Enjoy the rest of the week.

What a wonderful time you have had! Story land with Miss B sounds like it was very cooling. This cooler weather we are currently having may reach you before long. I am no fan of heat and humidity.

You do find the best stuff! I need to venture out and look for bargains...even if it's just to blog about them! Our weather has been cool these past few days. Only highs in the 60s today. But I love that every now and then to break up the heat. Have a good week! Can't wait to see the finished table project!

My favorite is the stone :-) I have one nearly like it. I will have to write a post about my stone's significance in my life.
