Simple Man

Well last night we set out to check out the amazing stack of windows that were advertised on craigslist. We met up with Dina, a sweet lady who was cleaning out her fathers home. Let me tell you his home was great! He had built it himself he was a simple man with no electric, plumbing or indoor bathroom. Apparently it was his dream to live this way once he retired. The cabin he lived in was amazing and there was also a pigeon coup he built as well. I am so disappointed I didn't take my camera, BUT we are probably going back this weekend as there was a ton of wood perfect for signs! So I will get some pictures.

This is what I came home with.
Out of all that only two windows.
Some amazing table legs or railing posts.
This fabulous mirror that can hopefully be reassembled.
Just love the carved detail!
Some decorative pieces off of old dressers.

Some old boxes
A fabulous glass knob!
My favorite find, these amazing signs from a local bakery that was open in the 80's. These were in their burn pile but after Dina saw my blog she pulled them out for me, isn't she the best!



A metal plant stand
There were so many treasures! Her father obviously had vision for all of these things and I am sure that is why he collected them, a junker after my own heart!
