My Finds at the Country Living Fair

I got this awesome old rusty gate there and right now it's sitting on my outdoor mantle. I am going to add a wreath or sign to it, but haven't decided yet.... The other idea I had for it is to mount it between two wood posts in the backyard somewhere and plant some flowers around it and make it a "secret garden" gate. I love this "gate to nowhere" look. We will see where it ends up, but I love it!
I also snagged this old metal typewriter table. I have been looking for a cute metal table like this one for awhile now, and was so excited when I spotted this one. I will paint her a pretty shade of blue and she will live in my sunroom. "After" pics to come...

I picked up a few more blue jars because I love them and this bird ornament made out of beadboard. I also got these enamel numbers to go on the jars or on some baskets in my bathroom. The 95 is for the year we got married and the 73 is when my hubby was born.


I just love me some feedsacks! I picked up two of these burlap potato sacks. I will make some pillows out of these mixed with some softer fabrics. I don't know if I will keep the pillows or sell them. We will see how they turn out.
And that broke my Country Living Fair budget, but I picked up so many ideas at no charge and my wheels are still spinning...
Now off to paint that table!
