The Early Birds Gets The Worm

Good dump karma today! I have not gotten much lately. This coffee table is in great shape and solid I plan on painting it a nice funky color once I can spray paint outside.
This painting is new and made in the USA I have someone in mind for it if she wants it.

And a new tub of plaster of paris, I think I can come up with a use for this.

And for 1.00 this signed book about northern NH.

I spent the whole day with Miss Baby last Tue so much fun. But oh boy was I tired.
I have done a bit of hooking on that chair pad I hate but I need to finish so I can move on.
I want to thank everyone that joined in my giveaway it was such a wonderful success that I will do another soon I hope. I have met so many nice people thanks for following.
We are meeting my brother in law and sister in law at a very nice restaurant tomorrow for brunch. We are looking forward to seeing them and enjoying some wonderful food.
Have a great week!

Such a lovely table Cathy :o) and I could certainly find use for plaster of paris, looks like a fascinating book too.
I can imagine the fun filled day with Miss Baby, bet it was a 'nice' tired though.
Enjoy brunch, great to catch-up with family - David must still doing well as you are going out :o)

Your dump finds always amaze me! I love the coffee table. What a great find for the warm outdoor weather that I'm sure will be here any day..right? The book looks pretty interesting too. I'm so happy that you and your hubby can be out and about enjoying life again. Have a great rest of the weekend!

What fun finds! I really love the wicker table, but then I might have a wicker addiction.

Pretty table, I have not been to a thrift store in such a long time. Believe it or not I am still unpacking from moving back to Crest.

Susanne said...

Great finds! Instead of wishing I lived with snow I should be thankful I don't have to wait to paint, right? Nope, I'd rather have snow!

Sorry to have missed the giveaway, what a cute chicken! I'd vote for your chicken in every pot though!

Keep warm, Susanne.

You find the best things! Our dump doesn't allow "shopping". Sad I think. They do have a book trailer where you can pick up books, but that is it.
I love that pic, looks like down the street from where I live.
Hope David gets a good report, I am praying!

Diann said...

Great finds! I love the wicker table and it will look wonderful painted! Thank you for joining TTF and have a wonderful week!

Susan Freeman said...

I swear you have the best dump in the country! Love that wicker table!!

Big Hugs,

I can't believe your luck! Awesome finds. There is no dump picking down here....Reason #592 why I hate Florida! The weather is lovely but it is no place to live! I love getting your letters, thanks so much, now I am going to read your blog for awhile, love you, miss you

Great finds, Cathy! I know you enjoyed your day with your granddaughter. I have one more week in Iowa and am loving ever minute with my grandchildren but may rest for two days when I get home! ;-)
