Gracie's Cottage Goes Rummaging

I don't love to rummage as much as some of you do, but now and then an ad captures my attention and off I go.  Today I took off down a country road. This abandoned farmhouse grabs my heart each time I pass by.
I think of how proud the builder must have been when it was completed...
...and wonder what circumstances led to it's current condition.  A few miles further and I see that I'm approaching my first destination.
This looks promising.
A tent, a barn, and a yard filled with stuff.  I came away with a few little treasures and hit a couple of other sales before arriving home.  Here are the 'down & dirty unloading in the garage' pics of some of my finds. 
I know what this you?
These look much better since they had a bath.
What do you think?
Love this 'coo-coo' condo...three levels, probably for pigeons or doves. 
I'm loving bright colors this summer.
Blue, white...just right.
Just in time for summer fun.
and... this great industrial stool.   

I'm linking up with Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday -  let's go get inspired!
