Friday Finds

Last Friday I had quite an adventurous day, and I found several cool things throughout. Some I kept, some I didn’t.

My best friend was home from college for a few days, and we went to my mom’s house to get my (horse) show clothes for her to borrow. Unfortunately, the tenant that is currently renting my mom’s house said they “may have ended up at goodwill after the garage sale”. That’s hundreds of dollars of clothes down the drain, my friends. And let me tell you… my mom was NOT happy when she found out. Yikes.

On the bright side, I was able to grab a few things I decided I wanted to take home. Some of the things I grabbed included riding boots, sewing machine, coat rack with cubbies, my tennis racket, and a sweet plaid wool blanket that I think belonged to my mom’s dad.

My mom doesn’t live at the house currently, but we both have plenty of stuff stored away in the garage. I’ve been wanting to get the rest of my stuff especially after what happened, but Chris and I just don’t have the space to store anything else. I figure that once we buy a house if it has a garage then I will get the rest of my stuff and possibly some/all of mom’s stuff that’s there (honestly I don’t think she would notice if someone stole everything of hers out of there). Her address is… just kidding 😉

Speaking of a new house… I found this awesome file folder at the antique store in my hometown. We figured while we were in town we had to stop!

It’s so adorable and I didn’t think it was too pricey. It instantly made me think of that Fixer Upper style. Unfortunately, I currently don’t have an office at home so I don’t have a use for it yet. Now that I think about it, I totally should have just bought it and taken it to work!

Last but not least I scavenged up a bunch of really cool old bottles. While we were at the antique store I saw a bunch of old glass medicine bottles and mentioned how my mom used to find those in her back yard all the time. My friend says they have a spot on the side of their road where people used to dump stuff and there are a TON of bottles. I like to call it the bottle graveyard.

Here are most of them after I packed them into the car. There are plenty more that were intact and easy to find, but I had to put them back because I don’t even know what I’m going to do with all of these!

Here they are lined up on the back steps after the initial rinse. Some of the bottles with the lids still on I didn’t get to yet because I’m gonna put gloves on so I don’t cut myself.

Filled them up with a dab of soap and a bunch of water

I haven’t gotten them all cleaned out yet. I need to get some better scrub brushes that will be able to fit into the bottles instead of a dishcloth.

I just love how unique some of these bottles are, but I still can’t decide what I want to do with all of them!

What would you do with all these bottles?

See You Around!
