I thought it was a piece of cardboard, with all the dust covering it. I had no idea it was a mirror! It's very heavy (and large) and I think it could clean up nicely. We found it hanging in this nasty corner. . . .
. . . of this nasty shed:
This is a photo of the shed mostly cleared out. . . it was a huge mess. Three truckloads of junk, including 30 POUNDS of beer cans (which we recycled.) This shed has to be repaired with good, clean wood, and given a nice coat of paint. We're going to put the chicken coop here. It turns out that the first owner of the home used this as a chicken coop, too. Lots of work ahead! Let's keep this photo in mind as the "before," and hopefully next month, I'll have an awesome "after" to share!
Here's what we found in another barn. . . .
I wonder what we'll find next? ? ?
But for today. . . .
I'm going to bake Valentine cookies with Monkeys 6 and 7. That should be interesting!
Later, we're all heading out for a thrift store trip -- I'm really looking forward to that. We haven't been in quite a while. The main reason? No offense, West Texas, but your thrift stores stink. As in, they aren't very good/stylish/stocked. But I suppose we'll have to make-do until our next trip back to the big city. I'm on the lookout for some bright, springy plaids and maybe some bold florals. *crossing my fingers* My daughter is also wanting to make some more of these shirts, (so she can eventually open her own Etsy shop!!) so she has her own thrifty shopping agenda. Wish us luck!
