My recent findings and cool stuff

What is it?
I got this too but not quite sure what it is. Does anyone know?
the wooden bowls I got for a project. The funnel for Misi's treasure hunt. And the wire rack I wanted to redo for something I am making for the spare bedroom. I will post pics when I get the stuff done.
Nicky brought this to me from her mom's basement. It has some kind of contact paper or something on top that has been painted over. I am peeling it off and it looks like oak or something under it. Can't wait to get it finished. I am going to paint the legs black to go with the two old black chairs she gave me. Then I have no idea where I am going to put it. We shall just have to wait and see what needs to go to make room for it.
I got this from the antique Mall in Bangor. I have some other cast iron stuff from my mom's house too. This stuff must last forever. I treated it when I got it home so looks a little shiny. But will be fine.
My five gallon crock, I got it at a weird little store in Brewer that I found by mistake one time. I go there whenever I get five minutes.

 These are some of the things I found when I went to see my son last weekend. The table and the other thing Nicky game me from her mom's house. Her mom passed away a couple months ago so now she is going through the process of cleaning out her mom's house. That must be so sad and hard to do.
The weekend was really great. I got so much done and had such a good time with my kid. Well I should of known that it was too good to last. Yesterday was just awful. So many things went wrong I think I spend the day on the verge of tears, if not over the verge at times. Oh speaking of which did anyone watch Army Wives the other night. Wow I think I went through a box of tissues. Geez. I have made a deal with myself that I cannot play on the internet until after 830 pm. So far so good. I just didn't seem to be getting anything done. I have made quite a few things since my pact so I hope I can keep it up. I need to make myself a list of things I need to do. Besides the things I want to do :)
Well back to blog land to see what everyone is up to.
I hope you are all having a great week.
