Tuesday Display Chain "Patina"

Is it Tuesday? I'm confused... It really feels like Monday...I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! We had a wonderful day with friends and some family... Recouping today!

Once I realized it is Tuesday, OOPS! That means it's display chain day! Today's theme from Misi over at the 1890gablehousemusing.blogpsot.com "Patina".... OH how we all love the patina's on our prims! I could take pictures all day on this one.... But I am moving a bit slow today! So Here are just a few of my faves!!!! This is my latest find! A old stove board... Love it! decided to use it as a fireplace screen in front of my fake fireplace mantel... Not big enough for the opening, fun all the same!


I don't think I ever showed this off... Acquired this early in the Spring off FB... OH my, SO SO much bigger then I ever could of imaged! The biggest firkin I have ever see! And of course wonderful patina!!!



Just a few bowls... some many different patinas......



My first real "prim" piece once I started walking on the dark side of primitives... LOL... Can't get enough of them now.... I wonder the stories this great old table could tell... think of what its heard while bread was being made for a family.....



Loved this best about the top... Was it a meat grinder attached??? Again if this table could talk...



AH, My lasted sign... found this couple of weeks ago... hubby put a stake on it and it's out on the patio! The hit of the BBQ yesterday....a little humor!


So needed to show off this little surprise I received last week from Becky over at primitives n stitchin! Loved her, I think she had one of these gals for a giveaway awhile back?? Such a wonderful surprise, perfect pick me up on a day that was a bit crappy! Thanks Becky!




Few footnotes.... I am still working, or really thinking on my giveaway that I said I would do once I hit 175 in followers... I see I am up to 182. WOOSZERS! welcome to all!!! I am working on it... Just don't know what I want to do.... I have to make up my mind... Do I use Becky, that I showed awhile back... I just don't know.... Details to follow soon, I promise! AND.... hubby is off this week and we have plans to clean up the crawl space... Why do I mention that???? Well.... I am going to thin out some of my prim goods and such.... So later in the week, I am going to have a blog garage sale if anyone is interested.... I am shooting for Thursday and Friday, But I am all screwed up with thinking it's still Monday! have a great day! OLM

I love that stove board. And I have always wanted a table like that. So pretty.....
I'm looking forward to your on-line sale. And your giveaway....
I'm thinking about doing one, too.
Isn't it too bad we can't all get together and have a giant swap meet?
