Here is some old old black for you,

and some not quite "Get R Dones"

Here is some black for you.

You never know what you will find while out walking.
When I saw this...
I knew it was the perfect Vintage Black Friday Treasure.
(it really was black, just looks grayish green in pic).

ooh! oooh! oooh!

More black!!

This was my lucky week for vintage black finds.

a vintage cookbook, and a photo album (only .25!). =0))

a cool old dustpan.(I know a great artist out there who would be painting on this!) =0)
and coolest of them all.....

this old metal train!!
Here it is with the car i got with it.
Don't know if they go together.
Second car has (written on the bottom,)
"Mar Toys, Made in United States of America".
It is missing two back wheels, but is still mega cool!

My Get R Done

I have a lot going on at the store.
Lots of unfinished projects.
Rearranging furniture, putting up displays,
sorting inventory, crafting and more.

But here are some things that I did get done.

I laid on this bed....

and let this girl...

Give me a massage.
( a gift certificate from my sweet fella last Christmas).

I took these two sweeties,
(my sweet son-in-law, and youngest granddaughter)

along with these two...
(our grandson, and my sweet fella)

and the rest of the family,
(8 of us all together.)
out for our weekly 99 cent yogurt on Wednesday night.

Now, I'd say i accomplished quite a lot.
Wouldn't you?? =0))

smiles and blessings,

barbara jean

A treasure trove of vintage black finds! But I have to say that the best treasure would be a massage!!!

Hope you are going on a nice trip!
Your family is adorable. Love the 99 cent yogart outing. And I remember those black dust pans from somewhere. I think you got a lot done!

Glad that you "Got R Done," family time is most important anyway!

Love the black motorcycles!

Your treasures are great. That motorbike is just unreal. What a treat to get a massage, but best of all was the night out for Yogurt. Such fun. Hugs, Marty

Thanks for participating in GET R DONE - you got a lot done, as always! That dust pan would look great with decorative painting on it - how about a CORGI??? Have a great weekend!
