 It's been soooo rainy and dreary and cold and yucky for soooo long that I've not wanted to stick my nose out of the house for like....ever.  But, you can only stand that for so long, right?   Soooo, what da ya do??  Go pickin'!!!  

Here are a some of my favorite finds.  The little table had already been painted and burlap added to the top and shelf.  And, then glass was added on top of the burlap, making the perfect place for those treasured photos.  I brought it home, placed some of my old photos under the glass, took this picture and posted it on Facebook.  And in less than an hour, it had sold and was paid for and picked up by the customer.  I wish that happened more often. 

I always grab these old suitcases.  Got this one for a steal.  So, she'll soon be goin' down to my booth.  And, that little pitcher...........had to have it.  

It was a pretty fruitful pick.  Butttt,
the only bad thing about goin pickin' isssss that you wanna turn around and do it again and again and again.  I think I should make this a weekly event.  What cha think??

Y'all come back soon.


  1. LOve that table! What a cute redo someone did! And that suitcase, was a great find...Yep, this picking is addictive!


  2. The table is lovely, and you did a great job on it!

  3. Hi!! Brand new follower here! My best friend and I are coming up this Friday (I live in Cullman AL)..hopefully we can find the shops with your work!!!

    1. Lora...GREAT!!! Be sure to go to the old Downtown Square. Visit New Moon Antques, where my booth is just inside the door to the right. And, I have things at Waterloo Mercantile. There's also another Antiques Store, The Carriage House. So, there's quite alot to do in our old downtown area. HAVE FUN !!!

  4. I drоp a leave a respοnѕe each time I
    like a article on a site оr if I have sоmething
    to valuable to contribute to the conversatiоn.
    Usually it is a result of the sincerness displayed in the article I looked at.
    And on this post "BEEN PICKIN'". I was actually moved enough tо dгoр a commеnt ;-) I
    do have 2 questionѕ for уou if yоu don't mind. Could it be only me or does it appear like a few of these comments appear as if they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you make a list the complete urls of all your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  5. On our waaaay! What a gorgeous day to hang out with the Amish and to go furniture shopping out of town! See ya'll in about 2 hours!

  6. Great Lora. Have fun. Hope you'll visit my booths.

    1. We just made it home. It was a long, fun day! The Square was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l. We had lunch at The Green Tomato and then went to visit the Amish. I didn't buy anything from New Moon or Waterloo (yet) but already planning a return trip with a truck :) Lawrenceburg is SO charming. The gentleman at The Carriage House was super-dooper nice. It was just a great day all around!

    2. Lora....Im soooo very glad that you enjoyed our little Downtown Square. I think it is so quaint too. I've not eaten at The Green Tomato yet. Sounds like I need to get over there.
      Hey, I was wondering, did you maybe stay at Richland Inn while visiting our town? I work there too, and was giving a gentleman directions around town and wondered if maybe I was talking to you and your husband and we didn't realize it?? COME BACK TO VISIT SOON!!!

    3. Nope....I see that you left and returned on the same day. So, that answers my question about staying at Richland Inn. You'll have to plan a whole weekend, so that you'll have more time to enjoy all the shops. When you do, come stay with us at Richland Inn. Hey, I'll even give you our best rate. 8-)
