New Beginnings - August Sale Starts to Come Together!

 Did you notice that there was an extra week between the June and July sale?  And we are on a very SHORT time frame between the July and August sale.  So we should all be busting our butts to get some great treasures done for you guys!  Unfortunately, the heat and humidity busted our butts - so now we are all behind and scurrying around like little mice to cram 3 weeks of work into 1 week!  Will we do it??????  BUT OF COURSE!!!!!  Some of us (Barb and Susan) are almost all done - drat those two - they always make the rest of us look bad!!  But most of us are just getting our first loads in the door, still painting and building and just barely starting on placement!  I still managed to get a few good photos tho - thank goodness for my son and his smart phone camera - I dropped my camera in a puddle on Saturday:(  But I'll have a new one later this week!  Can you see what Ted has used for the back of his cupboard?  It is an old sign - with such great colors!
 A nice size table and 4 fun metal chairs!  Small enough to fit any home!  And I just know that the chairs WILL HAVE seats in them by August 4th!
 A beautiful dresser with mirror - and don't you just love the placement of the three lamps?  There is nothing like lamps paired or tripled together at varying heights!
 Barb has some of her great artwork this month.  These tins with the little old purses are so sweet!
 Wait til you see this in person - the mirrored top of a buffet - oh so pretty!
 I'm loving this wire piece in MaryAnn's area - I can think of a hundred different uses - bet you can come up with some too!
 Angela is going for a more open look in her area this month - I love the huge mirror on the back wall!  Gives so much light and reflection - think of how that would open up a space in your home!
 Okay, all together now....ooohhh, aahhhh!!!  This item is gonna cause fist fights!
 Peter brought in this beautiful old cupboard that has been perfectly restored.  Yep - drop dead gorgeous!
 Kettle drums.  Since I am not a drummer I see beautiful end tables!
 I will always and forever be in love with most everything in Susan's area!  I love all of her colors!  In front is a great old cabiny kind of sofa painted a bright yellow with lots of red showing thru - and it's pretty darn comfy too!
 Lynn has this incredible cupboard top.  And with a piece this beautiful, who needs the bottom?  Hang it on your wall or stand it on top of whatever piece you happen to have!
 Are you seeing the base on this pedestal table?  Are you drooling like me?  Are we gonna have to draw straws for it?

We might have been having too much fun while we were working last nite!  So how do you think Barb would look with a mustache?????  Okay - back to work now - and more pictures as this week goes on!

And More from the July Sale!

 Mama bird keeping a watchful eye on us!  I am hoping that the babies are gone by Thursday - mama gets a little anxious!!!  And speaking of anxious - oh my stars - we are all so anxious to see all of you cuz are all quite proud of ourselves this month!!!!!  Treasures as far as the eye can see - really unique treasures - really wonderful treasures - super duper - fantabulous - incredibly awesome - the cat's meow - and best in show - SECOND HAND ROSE is the place to be this July!  So set your clocks guys and gals - Thursday will be here quicker than you know!!
 This chair is drop dead gorgeous - just as is in all of her disarray!!
 An incredible 2 tier coffee table made from a great old cart with yellow iron wheels and barn board!
 A fun summertime centerpiece!
 Another great coffee table made from a cream separator base and the flywheel from a fanning mill!  Gorgeous!!
 One of our great carts - turned coffee table!!  This one has a gorgeous finish and is 27" wide and 47" long!  We have another one in a much darker finish that is similar in width - but about 5' long!  And another one waiting in the wings!  This is the month to come and get your very own - and much, much less expensive than Restoration Hardware!  And then get your very own immigrant trunk to go with it!
 Dinah's spot is as beautiful as always.  Period.  Nothing more to say!
 Lynn has these INCREDIBLE theater seats - and this really cool metal door thing hanging on the wall.  I can't decide what I like best!
 These light fixtures are TO DIE FOR!!!!!  Wait til you see them in person - I think there will be line of people wanting them!
 An antique brass fixture that has been electrified - and it is 6' across!!!  Got some cathedral ceilings that are just crying out for a large one-of-a-kind fixture?  We've got it!!
 So much color this month - and tons of awesome artwork too!
This one you gotta see to believe - a circa 1950's chaise lounge in an incredible lime green and black fabric - and it plugs in and massages/vibrates you!!!  But you don't have to plug it in!!

Knee High by the 7th of July!!

 What a fun sale this is going to be!!  We are really, really full and everyone has been working so hard to bring you the BEST of THE BEST - the one of a kind, the unusual, the piece that will make your room come together!  I'll do 2 or 3 posts of photos cuz I took sooooo many - but I couldn't help myself - everything looks so good!  And we still have a few more days to go of bringing in treasures!!!!  So here we go!!!  I happen to be a sucker for wheels or just about anything with a round shape - don't know why - but I am and so this month I thought I would share some of my collection with you!!!  They make such great art!

 More wheels, bicycle art and lots of color!!
 We have another great cart this month to use as a coffee table!!!  I know we get requests every month - and rumor has it that there is another one (or maybe two!!) ready and waiting in the wings!!
 Pat's area is so full of......well, everything!!!  She has bikes and colors and whites and rusts and incredible sconces (you're gonna have to take my word on that one cuz the photo didn't turn out!!), and gardeny stuff and tables and chairs and and and.............Yep, I've been in there a few times and haven't seen everything yet!
 Angela isn't set up yet - but she has lots of very, very cool looking stuff packed in there waiting to be arranged!  I think I could want the green chair!
 We are packed outside too with so much color and unique items and seating and gardening items and tables and fire pit rings and things for your cabin!  And Barb, Susan and MaryAnn have been working SOOOO hard on re-doing the deck!  It now has some walls and is looking mighty cozy - You are gonna like it sure!
 A set of great lockers and Susan's little orange set from her yard!  Did you see it in my post a few weeks ago from Susan's home?  It looked lovely in her yard didn't it?  Well, now you can have the chance to have it look just as lovely in your yard!
 Makes you want to run right up to the cabin doesn't it?  I believe this duck boat is actually water worthy too - but it makes a great statement standing up!!  Then pull up a chair and have a marshmallow!
 I love all of this color out on the deck!
This is in Susan's spot - which is as usual TO DIE FOR!!!!  She has tons of colors and pulls it all together so well.  Her area always has a kind of global feel - but homey and comfy at the same time.  Always one of my favorites!
