On A Sunday Afternoon

Yesterday afternoon, after church, my dear little mother and I had lunch out together in a neighboring town. On our way home we stopped at the Goodwill. My dear mother was very disciplined and she came away with nothing. I - on the other hand - couldn't help myself. I just couldn't leave two things I found. It seemed they called my name. They needed to come home with me! The minute I saw this one, I couldn't resist. Into the basket it went! (It's about twenty inches tall, with nearly six inches from the top of the bottom basket to the bottom of the one on top.)This little cutie was waiting for me on a shelf nearby. (It's about eleven inches tall.)

Both of these pieces need a bit of cleaning and some paint. I haven't decided what color they will be or exactly how I'll use them. I would love to hear your suggestions. You may give me ideas I've not thought of yet. You'll see them again when they are finished. You'll be the first to know!

  1. Oooh, I love the two tiered basket! Let me see, with Christmas coming that would look so pretty with ornaments inside, or christmas cactus or just about anything! I would paint it to compliment your dishes and linens.

  2. I'm thinking fall Adrienne - painted black the baskets would be wonderful filled with pine cones and acorns (for Christmas add red berries) and the little chair would be the perfect place for a small scarecrow or pumpking. blessings, marlene

  3. I would have wanted to buy those too! Lately, I've been painting accent pieces black, sort of gives a pop to all my other colors!

  4. You did very well at Goodwill, Adrienne. I wouldn't be able to resist these either!

  5. This time of the year I think that everything should be pumpkin colored. I think that chair would be adorable holding a tiny book and pair of spectacles. Really cute finds!

  6. Adrienne,
    Love that little chair. What are you going to do with it? Is it metal or wood I couldn't tell?
