Looky Here

I got myself some mid-week finds. I love those, don't you?
This windmill has some character, for sure.
I think David might snatch this sofa and chair up. He recently enclosed a porch, making for a lovely screened porch which overlooks a cow pasture and the lake. Heck of a view.
Throw some great cushions on 'em and a coat of rustoleum and I might just have his birthday present!
I also picked up this old scale and rusty turbine for a song. Not bad for a Tuesday adventure, huh?

A big thanks to those of you who stopped by David's blog to wish him a happy birthday. It's not too late if you haven't made it over yet! His big day is actually Sunday.

We'll be heading out tomorrow morning for Eureka Springs. If we get a chance, we fully intend to head up to Ozark, MO to meet Jan and see Leola's.

A large thank ya to Malisa and Karen at Moonlight Hollow, as well as Miss Tn'T , for giving us a list of things we oughta do while we are up that way.

See ya when we get back!


  1. OMG what awesome finds !
    I love windmills of every shape and size,
    your pictures are great.The turbine can stand on its own it is sooooo cool. Wow great scale and that fabulous furniture ,can't wait to see it with cushions.
    Thank you for posting these today.
    Have a great weekend.

  2. Hello - found you over at WIW's Through the Back Door. This looks like a fun site and very unique. I'm off to explore some more posts.

  3. Yea!!! You got it right -- Leola's. My favorite shop is Something Simple but I love Vintage Cargo. It's new things but different. Love your finds. The couch looks long enough to actually take a nap on -- that's a "must have" for the porch. Hope to see you soon. Jan

  4. I am totally salivating!!!! I want it all and I'd say not bad at all for middle of the week finds. Enjoy and happy junking!! jojo

  5. I love that windmill!
    Have yourself a safe trip!

  6. Good stuff indeed! Happy Trails!

  7. Oh, that windmill is pretty cool. Fun finds for midweek!

  8. Hey, after both tops for my windmills continued to break from strong winds...I decided to keep the bases and some day place them so vines can climb them. Perhaps "some day" will be soon!

    You have wonderful finds there!!!

    p.s. Tell David happy birthday. He shares the day with my oldest son. And have a great weekend!

    p.p.s. I am NOT a tease! (ok, maybe I am)

  9. Wow, Mindy. Those are fabulous finds. That windmill is amazing and if I lived close by, I would definitely snatch that up from you - I think it would like fantastic in my garden!

  10. Ahhhhh! To have the capabity to cart these babies home must be wonderful! Nice finds.
