The find is FREE the friendship is PRICELESS

We had a great week end !  Friends from Hanna came to visit and we had a few adventures together!  We enjoyed showing them our reno improvements and giving them a tour of the property in summer.  It was wonderful to share our table with them  and to hear our laughter again.

We took them to a few of our favorite shops, Annie McGuire, a Metal Shop where Sharalynn purchased a "plier flier" and a "metal daisy". . It was relaxing to just snoop around the shops with no rush of a schedule!  Although we did have to take a detour home to check the know that feeling when you aren't sure if you turned it off or not!  Well, I had turned it off,,,but just wanted to be sure!   It was a good thing we did return home...who knew the oven question and unloading a bigger item purchased at the metal shop would free up the room we would need in the car for the next stop we made!

Artisan's work

Next stop, with an empty car....was Blondie's Greenhouse.  I love seeing the beauty of greenhouses in full bloom!  I purchased a rose bush, have never grown one before, so will see if it survives.  Sharalynn was working on a spot in her yard and found some perennials that she was happy with.

Next stop was a "garage sale" that the guys happened to see a sign for.  As we turned around it looked like it was in a storage unit parking lot.  Hmmm,,,there was one car leaving, and nobody else was around.  There was a whiteboard that said "Everything Free"!

Well it didn't take long to go over what we didn't want!! { BUT} there were two little items that were a gem in the making!  One being the little chair you can just see in the right hand corner of the above picture and the other this cute little dresser!

But...would it fit in the car!? 

Sharalynn looked pleased that, {YES} it would fit!!

But...that did mean the little chair would have to stay!
Just no room!

And you know you are good friends when you can make the trip home with {friend} sitting on your lap cause there is just no where else to sit!  And here I thought Phil was holding the plants on his lap the whole trip home,,,only to find out later that they were sitting on the floor and he held nothing!!

Sharalynn has plans to use the dresser in her spare room.  I suggested that she call our niece, Heidi, who has just started her business over at Rustic Barnyard

One more look at this little gem. Lots of potential here!!

Stay tuned for another post with more information about Rustic Barnyard!

That sounds like a very fun time with your friends. The dresser is really nice and will definitely be beautiful when refinished. I hope you have a great weekend!

What a fun time to share with friends. You probably laughed yourselves silly.
