sometimes no just doesn't make sense to me

but, I've been know to do a lot of things that don't make sense to me, much less to anyone else
This soda shop table and chairs just spoke to me the moment I saw it.  $35.00.  Yes please.
I could so easily invision my three little grandgirls playing around it.  I might clean it up a bit, and maybe recover the seat bottoms, and maybe try to push it off on my DIL, but for now, it is on my back porch looking so sweet and cute .... and waiting for someone to come over and play

a few Saturday mornings ago

 first up .... this lovely french chest that I found at an estate sale 
A great candidate for a make-over  - she is clean as a pin and in great shape
 I just knew my bestie would probably love to add this piece to her french collection

I picked this up at my favorite antique store in Slayden, Mississippi
I can't decide if I should paint it or refinish it.  I think I like the dark wood 

this would be easy to sand down and put a couple of coats of stain on it  

for $1.00 - I couldn't resist

and a buck for these flip-flops ...  they have already served me well

more on that left foot soon... brace yourself ... the pics are ugly scary

good luck "sailing"  this Saturday!
I am posting this to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures party - check it out and see what others are finding

we went back

I have to show you the BLT we ate at The Tomato Place 
 and a little more funkadelic I noticed while we waited on our sandwich and fresh fruit smoothy

 I wasn't sure what to order, so I asked an ole man sitting around killing time, what was good?
Without hesitation, he said the BLT.  I wish I had taken his picture.  Features that stuck with me are that he was old, a little heavy, bald, smiling, and a toothpick.  You get the idea...  But, I felt silly asking him.  
However, after spending about 10 minutes with the man, I silently wondered if we would be eating our sandwich with him.   I should have just asked him.  He was a perfect live fixture to this joint.

This was the BLT club and it was so delicious
But, I love tomato and mayonnaise sandwiches, and bacon is a bonus

we stopped by after a hard rain storm and sat in the back of the place
windows open, cool breeze blowing through, Jeff across the table from me
yes please!

okay, enough about this place... hope you find your own little road side stand this summer
or at least fry up a pound of bacon and make BLT's for supper one night soon
