Ok first and formost, for those who don't know, I live in Kansas City. So the above pic is obvious, rooting HARD for our KC Royals to win the World Series! Exciting time around these parts.
In personal news, I had some knee surgery today. Arthroscopic surgery on my left knee. This is my 4th knee surgery, they have both been scoped twice now. I have terrible knees, and my doctor tells me I really need both of them replaced, but hoping this scope and these shots they give me (fake cartridge made out of the comb of a chicken...eww) will let me put it off for a few years. I jokingly (but not really a joke) say that for my 50th birthday I am buying myself new knees! Anyway, the plus side is I'm off work for the next six weeks so lots of blogging time, listing time, and getting waited on time. See, there is a plus side!
In junking news I have a few things I found over the last couple weeks. Went to a great estate sale that was also cheap! (Rare around here) also a church sale and a few garage sales. found some fun stuff!
This was my haul, minus two big items.
A cute white pitcher, jello molds and great turquoise shell vase.
I mentioned earlier that I had two big item purchases. The first was this vintage metal chewing gum rack. Already put to use next to my washer holding all my laundry supplies!
The last thing I found was a vintage enamel top table in white and jadeite green. I love, love, love it. It's currently in my basement and since steps and crutches don't mix, I don't have a pic for you. But as soon as I can hobble to the basement I will post a pic. Trust me, worth the wait! How was your week?
Bless your heart - surgery today and still blogging tonight! What a trooper! I hope it helps and you feel better soon. You have found some great stuff - that chewing gum rack is the best! I want an old laundry basket - but that is like one step better! Stay off your feet - don't go to the basement!ReplyDelete
The gum basket is the very best..wow..I would have snagged that too. And a table lurking in the basement? Cant wait to see that. Heal and rest up...ReplyDelete
