I HAD to pick up this drawer. I love the bright green paint, the crustiness of it, and the tiny little keyhole at the top.
I adore vintage Christmas stuff. My favorite pieces I found yesterday are the blue glass ornament with gold trees on it, and the tiny pink glass ball ornament. They will look awesome on my silver tinsel tree.
This was actually picked up off the ground by my bf. Its a manual from 1959 about how to sketch the human body.
This is the center part of the artists manual. I just popped it into a plain black frame and voila! another piece of instant art.

I went to the auction yesterday for a bit in the morning. I only got a few things, but I like them all. I might have been able to get more if my bf hadn't been with me; I like spending time with him of course, but he does not have the patience to stand around gathering junk like I do. ;)

I'm looking for a drawer large enough for my 60 lb. boxer, so I can make her a new bed. Will use finials for feet, tuck in a nice foam insert for comfort, and make a couple sets of cool sheets for summer, and warmer flannels for cold weather. Just have to find a drawer or box big enough. Could add some casters and use for storage under bed, or a coffee table. Maybe line it with fabric or old wallpaper and keep knitting type project under coffee table so it's handy but out of the way... Posted: 6:40 pm on June 25th

Great finds!
