Chippy Wire Umbrella

We are finally home, after four cities in four days, one of those stops was a family emergency and we are very tired.

The biggest city was Atlanta and we finally got to go to IKEA. We bought a blue and white striped hammock and it looks great.

 So let's look at some more estate sale finds if you want to!

The chippy umbrella came from an estate sale that took checks. Woot. I made a tower of items, those green baskets from the previous post were found there too. Joe bought tools. Imagine that.
The little Dutch pitcher was four dollars at the splendid sale from two weeks ago. And really I behaved because there was an entire shelf of these blue and white pieces.

I did spray the umbrella and wire baskets with some clear polyurethane to prevent further rusting.
Yes it is broken but I do not mind one bit.

The needle point purse was found at the Salvation Army last year.
Thanks bunches for visiting my Window of Light, that's my name for the window seat.

I am partying here:
