Remember I told you my youngest and I went to a Flea Market, a few yard sales and a Consignment shop last weekend. We had a lot of fun even though we didn’t find a lot of stuff.
It is the thought of finding that one great thing even if it doesn’t look so great when you find it! I asked my middle son a couple of weeks ago when he was with me at The Island Home if he ever got sick of driving me all over going to my favorite spots and I just loved his answer. He said, ” No Mom, I think it is pretty neat when you see something and and tell me you have to have it and I think what does she want that_____ (insert any word that a teen might use to describe some of the things we bring home from the side of the road) for because I just don’t see it.” He then tells me that he thinks it’s pretty cool how my projects turn out! Anyway, this is the first thing I found at the Flea Market and I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it.
Pretty isn’t it? As soon as I saw it I picked it up. I snagged this Vintage Match Holder for one dollar. I knew that I would use it with my Vintage Canada Dry bottle opener…remember this? Well, I need something to catch the bottle caps when we use the bottle opener.
I painted the Match Holder with a spray stainless steel paint that I picked up at ACE Hardware. It was a quick and easy job and turned out perfectly!
So I am planning on placing the newly painted match holder right here…
