In case you don’t live in Rochester you might not know that we had a major sneak attack snow storm on Friday. This was disappointing because I was all geared up to do some serious estate sale shopping. Not one to be deterred by the snow I ventured out and found some real gems. First I got an old christmas tree stand for 5.00 which you can see here (notice the snow):
Then I went to a sale just around the corner, this place was jammed with stuff. I headed right to the basement, I feel like its where the best stuff is. Then I found what might be the start of something spectacular at IBB. Stuffed between a bookcase and a an old stove was a vintage paint by numbers scene of a barn and rolling hills. I liked it, but wasn’t sure if it was something I needed to have. I left the sale empty-handed and headed to Barnes & Noble where I could read as many home interior magazines as I want for free. That’s when I saw this:
Ugh! dang it! I knew I had a good idea. I think this was printed in Coastal Living or something like that. A whole wall of old paint by numbers. This person has a Sea theme, which makes it even cooler. I’m not sure how you folks feel about this idea, but I really like it. So the next morning I was back at the estate sale digging around in the basement for this the paint by numbers which I got for 2.00:
I’ve got a long way to go, but its a start.
