QcumberZ and Weekend Trash

I made it down to Qcumberz this weekend and restocked the space.
I found this folding wood vintage easel while garaging last weekend.  It has a drawer for paints and brushes that sits behind the print.
Isn't she lovely.  The sketched fashion model art is from the thrift store.
What else did I find to take to the shop?
This gorgeous vintage dresser that I couldn't decide if I should keep or sell.  In the end, I didn't have any room for it in my house, so down to the shop it went.
Here's a better photo of it I took from home before I went down to Phoenix.
This end table/nightstand made it down there too.  Chandler says this is one of his favorite things I've ever painted.  He likes the futuristic look of it.  Does it remind you of Buzz Lightyear?
I paid $1.00 for these Anthropolgie bowls and measuring cups at a garage sale.
Here's a photo of the collection I found on-line.
The funky rock balls with the cool display stand was $5.00 at a garage sale.
The little light-up vintage owl and the vintage ballerina wall art were from the thrift store.
Here's a closer look because I heart owls.
Saturday was a lot of fun in blue jeans, but Sunday is the only day I dress up.
I think my trashy church outfit was worth the $11.00 I paid for it.

The skirt is from April Cornell and I paid $6.00 for it at a thrift store in Tucson.  These skirts run around $100.00.  The shirt is Tommy Hilfiger and it was $1.00 at Goodwill.  The shoes are J. Crew and were $4.00 at Mesa Thrift.  Eden's little dress is from The Children's Place and was $2.99 from Goodwill.  Chandler's $1.00 vintage tie was the only thing I found a few weeks ago while out garage selling.  I love that he already knows vintage means special and cool!
I hit one garage sell this weekend and I found Mayer something he's always asked for.  A Tony Hawk half-pike for his tech-decks.
What's great is after I paid $5.00 for all the skateboard ramps, the homeowner of the  garage sale looked through a big box of old toys and pulled out about 10 tech-decks, which she threw in for the same price.  One tech-deck is around $5.00, so this what such a sweet deal.
Eden played in her $25.00 thrift store play kitchen I found at Mesa Thrift.
Her little shirt, a Frances Elizabeth Original I found at Goodwill for $2.99 and is quite the show stopper.
 Eden is serious about playing house. Notice she's using the lid top of a can of spray paint as a cup.  She's recycling so young!  That's my girl.
Speaking of playing house, the counselor picked apricots, plums and apples from the fruit trees.
As I sit here blogging, he's pitting the apricots for freezing.  He's a smoothie lover, that man!  The apples are for applesauce, applesauce cookies and a much-desired apple crisp.
How was your weekend.  Hope it was a great one.  Hugs!

  1. Great post, as always!! Just wanted to let you know the easel is called a French easel and is still used by plein air painters today.
