I am not a religious person, but I have a fondness for old religious relics, especially statues. I hate seeing them in a bad state- they just look so sad!
So I had to pick up this Virgin Mary chalkware statue. Does anyone know what kind of paint to use on chalkware? Id like to try and fix her up a little.
I couldnt resist this little cermaic kitty either- hes pink and a gold bowtie! Looks kind of kitsch to me, and it makes me smile.
gotta love a wooden picture frame with white chippy paint! It reminded me of my Floribunda one, and this one even had the glass in-tact. (I just took it out to clean it)
An early example of designated driving? I thought this was funny, Ill probably display it next New Years.

Well, I only found a few things at the auction today (not all are pictured here). I was only able to stay a short while since Wednesdays are now one of my work days (boo). But it was a nice day to be outside anyway and I like the few things that i was able to find.
