Balmy Florida Friday at Renniger's

I spent Friday with my mom at one of my most favorite Florida winter-time activities.  The Renniger's Antiques Extravaganza is held three times a year in Mt. Dora, Florida during our "cooler months" and is filled with all sorts of great finds.  We started the day bundled up in coats and scarves, but by mid-morning, we had stripped off the layers and were enjoying a balmy 80 degrees--perfect weather for hunting down great items for new projects!

Loved the verdigris patina on this set of brass stacking sieves and the metal labels are great--thinking these would be a really cool set of mirrors and perhaps a clock.
Inspired by the simple color scheme on this painted box. 
I had no idea Brother had a Sister!
This mop bucket was found in a New Mexico gas station that had been closed up for the ridges on the side and metal feet at the bottom--just calling out to have a new life as a side table/ottoman.
Having a cart makes things a LOT easier--and perfect for carrying water and caramel corn--this is the first load going back to the car.
Load two--was really glad to have the cart for these heavy pieces!
Now back to the shop and time to get to work!


  1. You have such an eye! And imagination, too! I can't wait to see what becomes of these once you get your creative hands on them...

  2. Thank you! Just now saw this--sorry for the late reply! =)

  3. Ooh, I just realized that curved grill might make a nice conversation wall sconce!
