Weekend before last was the final Extravaganza of the season at Renninger's.

I went with high hopes of finding lots of fab stuff to take to Texas for the Spring show at MARBURGER.

It was slim pickins folks...

But what I got is pretty darn good!

I love this industrial table! Maybe from a lab? The top is copper! I think this would be a great entry table, don't you? You could toss your keys in the little bowl at the front edge.

Who doesn't love these old clip racks and this one has fabulous old blue paint! And I can't ever pass up a tarnished silver ice bucket.

Can you picture this cutie in your kitchen or your bathroom? I can...

I've had several battery jars over the years but none as big as this one!

Love this black metal tray but this weather dial steals my heart! I've never seen one of these before have you?

This huge and heavy zinc bucket is to die for! Picture it full of forsythia branches...

And then there's always something for moi, right? I am madly in love with my frozen charlotte necklace!

These little bisque dolls were put inside the cakes for little girls but if they were broken then they were buried in the yard. That's the story given anyway. She's suspended from old rosary beads married to a vintage ladies watch. Love!!!

So that's the extent of it minus a dress form that needs a little tlc before she makes her debut.

I spent the day with my pal Euna which was super fun! We both used to be dealers at Renninger's in the old days. 

Stay tuned for more updates on the preparations for MARBURGER FARMS!

I've been told by a couple of you recently that you are having trouble commenting on my blog.


It's been a while since this pesky problem first reared it's ugly head.

Now it seems to be back in spite of my downloading and using Google Chrome.

I decided to try turning off the word verification feature to see if that would help...

And like always I am now fielding annoying spam comments.

Sorry, I don't have the patience so I am turning the word verification back on.

I apologize if you can't leave a comment on blogger, but there's always Facebook.

My blog posts on my personal page HERE


Did you know I have a business page now for SWEET PEA HOME?

Go HERE and please be sure to "LIKE" my page!

Thanks everyone! Back soon with pics of what I bought at Renninger's Antique Extravaganza!

What is it about a deconstructed chair that makes me weak in the knees?

Remember this one that I found and kept about a year or so ago?

The best part is it's one of a pair... Yes, I know the burlap and horsehair is itchy, but they are like works of art to me and I keep them where they aren't sat upon. 

I digress...

In November I found this beauty...

Not in this deconstructed state, mind you. It still had it's original green upholstery and being as I'm not a green person and the fabric was a bit worse for the wear, I started removing it. I have to say it is amazing the amount of labor that went into this baby. 

But it's got potential...

I'm thinking antique grain sack upholstered and the original finish left intact.

You'll have to wait and see if this one makes it to the Spring show at MARBURGER.
