|World's Longest Yard Sale Score|
I've wanted a pair of these for a while. They were on my list. You know the list I mean. The one where you have an idea for something and think I really want that and then tell yourself if you just wait long enough you'll find one at a yard sale/thrift store/auction.
Of course they didn't look this way when I happily grabbed them from an otherwise creepy yard sale at the fairgrounds in somewhere (I don't remember where - it was a REALLY long day) Kentucky. You know how they looked. You've all seen them. Monkey wood tiki head forks and spoons once abounded in many a home across America. No more. They have been cast aside, discarded and branded ugly.
Well that's where a girl like me steps in and performs her grand rescue. All these babies need is some primer and a can of spray paint. Tiki on!!!!!!!! I love them.
They are happily hanging (yes, I do for a fact know that they are happy - how could they not be happy when painted such a cheery red?) in the kitchen. My daughter has remarked that she would like bowl of cereal big enough to require the use of such a large spoon. Perhaps I shall encounter one of those at another yard sale one day!
The old camp stove got some enamel pots from an auction a few weeks back. I'd like to get some plants to put inside. I'll just add that to my list and see what the junque gods provide in due course.
