You know you love the Linden goodness

A couple of weekends ago we visited the in-laws, in Linden, TN, and went to an auction. 
At first site, I thought the word auction was being loosely used  

We drove a long way off the main road to get to this .... all this was in the front yard.  At first site, rubbage came to mind, but if you roll up your sleeves and commit to getting someone else's funk on you, you will find something worth waiting for.   I quickly spotted a large box of chenille bedspreads - that I didn't get, but it sold for $15.00.   Things were going cheap.

Someone else took this lovely lady home.  I am thinking she came in a box of other goodies.  Bonus!
With her arms behind her head like that I wonder if she rolls her hips when you turn her on?

See the Auctioneers in the bed of the pick up truck?  And the 4 guys in the middle are the helpers and the ones that yell out when a bid is placed, or raised.

Samantha got this skateboard for $5.00.  Actually, I think a few other things came with it, but I didn't take a lot of pictures during this sale.

We were creeping into the hills .... 

The area has a prominent Mennonite community. They won a box of fabric.  
 I think the young girl combing through the box was picking out fabric for her next dress.

This is what I waited on all day ....
might be the best $5.00 I've ever spent on a piece of furniture.  oh yes I did!
She really is a beast, but I think I can turn this ugly girl into a swan

After the auction we had a surprise visit from niece and her hubs and their littles ...
we traded phone numbers or entered each others numbers in our phones so we can text and keep in touch.    One the way home I sent her a message, but I had the wrong number....

but, no worries... the wrong number was for this cutie boy...  
he wants to hang out...  I think he thinks I am the hot niece.  

Should I tell him?

Love that Linden goodness


  1. Wow! This looks like Heaven! Can't wait to see what you do with your furniture!

  2. You know what I love? It's what looks to be an old wooden thread spool they are using for a pull on the dresser!

  3. Wish I was there - some fun people watching and great finds!! The beast will soon be a beauty!

  4. Can't wait to see what you next project becomes! You definitely have an eye ;) Those little Mennonite children seem like they have such old soul, don't you think. They seem so mature.

  5. I just noticed that the Mennonites are wearing Crocs. ;)

  6. Hmmm... Looks like a dresser I know! Sadly I did not get mine for $5!!! Loved your dining room redo too. http://junkparlor.blogspot.com


I would love to hear from you
