Thursday find and Awards to pass on

There was one estate sale today, and so I headed to it before work. I found some vintage luggage at a good price, and a nice set of embroidered pillow cases. Then on my second walk through the garage, I found this for $3.00

It was a bit dirty, but I love the inside and the leather straps, and the metal on the corners, etc so I just had to get it. It's not real large like a trunk. It's more like a suitcase size, but squattier. Look at the straps on the inside.

When I got home I started cleaning it with saddle soap and take a look at the difference, and take a look at the rag (it was white when I started)

And here is the cleaner of my 2 hands.

What a mess, but I do love this piece. Not too bad for 3 bucks. I'm going to take it to my booth and keep my supplies in it.

Now on to my awards.
Jamie of simply me art gave me this award

I'd like to pass this award on to all of you, but I must choose only 2. So I pick...

Rosemary of Roses Petite Mason

Teresa of Garden Antiques News

These 2 ladies always inspire me. If I could I'd also pass it back to Jamie and Joy and TinaTx and Vickie and Linda.....

Now for my next award is a tag from Sweet Pea. I must share 7 interesting facts about myself. I've done this before, but it's been awhile so here goes.
1) I'm a very pick eater, and don't ever eat any kind of fish or green

2) I vacuum at night around 11:00pm

3) I take a nap almost everyday

4) I am semi fluent in American Sign Language and have worked as an

5) I can recite all 50 states in alphabetical order

6) Although I was raised in a non-religious home, I've been a Christian
since I was 16.

7) I got married (and still am) at the age of 17

Now I have to pass this on to 7 others.
So here goes.

Hey, Margo- Thanks for the tag! I'm thinking........
Great deal on that suitcase. I missed it or you got there before I did. I'm still so put out about the sale I went to this morning and the old man and old lady were fighting and she wound up not letting me have my merchandise!AND I broke a fingernail! I went all the way up to Lindale - What a waste of gas! I have to laugh about it I guess - it's not worth getting upset over - Good to see you! HOpe you found some more goodies at the estate sale- Vickie

Sand Flat Farm said...

I'm still amazed that you got married at 17! wow - you did good, girl, staying together all this time. You still had some growing up yourself to do at that age. Congratulations on a job well done and being a good example to others as well as your kids. Vickie
