We've been driving our son's car since he has our SUV, so we stayed close to home this weekend. The sad thing is that we are getting so old that we are sore from riding in a car. We usually ride around sitting upright, with plenty of room...and in Mike's low profile car, it's like sitting on the ground. After hour one I was in pain and so was my hubby. Spoiled rotten we are. Anyway, we went right down the road to South Barrington to the Junk Warehouse, and right across the parking lot is Tattered Tiques.
I had been to the Junk Warehouse once before a couple of years ago. Their inventory has changed from what I remember. There is much more painted furniture, cool accessories set up in vignettes, alot of nice junk. I really liked that blue door in the back, made up like a hall tree with hooks and a mirror. No room for that in my tiny foyer. But I did find a great piece, something that I've wanted for a long time...
More cool stuff, but this is what my honey bought me...
At Tattered Tiques, there was eye candy galore. I had already spent more than I wanted, so I mostly gawked. I did buy these tablespoons.
They had subway signs of local Chicago stops that I really liked. They also carry the ASCP...the chalk paint that everyone seems to be using. I cannot pay what they want for a small can of it. I can be cheap about some things, though no paint is inexpensive. Ace brand paint works great for me.My greatest find all weekend, was at a Estate Sale on the way home. !/2 price Sunday!
Bronson Pinchot Project on DIY...I got the tip from Dawn, and I am hooked. For those with cable, all the episodes are available On Demand...set aside a couple of hours, it's that good!)
Maybe I should go pound some spoons, I sound a little cranky! Have a great day my friends.
