Patience is a Virtue

You may remember a post I did what seems like many months ago now about finding an old painter's timber ladder to display some of my more special handbags. Well wait I did, and I found one!

We visited a garage sale described as a farmhouse estate on Saturday morning and walked in maybe 5 or 10 minutes before the advertised start time. Lucky we did because this baby was waiting for me to snap her up for a bargain price of $10.00! I'll be getting rid of that extra piece of new timber that has been added and shortening the rope but yep, it's pretty much what I had asked the garage sale gods to send my way.

Thanks also to dad for driving half an hour to get to a garage sale with the hope that some treasures would be waiting for us.

When we walked out with my new prize I overheard a lady say to her buddy, 'don't you just hate it when people get the stuff we're looking for?'

She was so jealous. I don't blame her.

Oh, and for my favourite hord nerd out there, we got these super healthy plants for $1.00 each. Should have got the whole lot!


Happy hunting treasure buddies.

Wow what a great find.
There are so many ways I can think of to use a timber ladder and in every room of the house too.
Hopefully this weekends garage sales may yield a ladder or two.
