Last Saturday I was on my way to get my usual Sonic Diet Coke when I made a wonderful discovery.I drove by a house around the corner that had the cutest old awnings.I had admired and loved for – oh about 20 years. Well there they were on the ground and there was a family painting the house. I went on my way and got to wondering if –just maybe they were going to throw them away??!!! I got up my nerve – and just drove by and yelled out my window “Are you throwing those “beat up-old- awnings”in the trash? I will be glad to haul them off for you- HEHE – They said “SURE” we don’t want those old things! They did ask me what I was going to do with the old things and I just told a little white lie. I said I do displays with old things – I didn’t say those displays were in my own home-??##!!

I was just like a kid in a candy store loading up my treasures and bringing them home – I just wanted to jump and cheer!!! I felt like  the soccer guy making the score in the all important game!

I had a hard time going to sleep the first night I just wanted to look at it and enjoy it. What could be cuter than red strip awnings!! They just make me happy- doesn’t take much huh?

Before the cuteness

DSC03245 does it make you happy?


Take you back some years??


I have been keeping busy the last few days but now I only have 2 more nights before I make the trip to welcome little callie into the world. Maybe I can do one more project to fill the next 48 hours…..

Wow, you did score! It looks great. I'm always on the lookout for awnings. They are getting harder and harder for me to find.
