The free stuff fairy strikes again...

Hi Everyone!  I have been busy working on custom items, a few new pieces and some things for the studio.  But I had to show you the free stuff I got on Saturday.  My dear sweet Aunt Barb that I first introduced to you here and here, as the free stuff fairy, has struck again.  She's been on a picking spree for me.  There's nothing like having your own personal picker out there hunting down deals and haggling over prices, who delivers it and then gives it to you for free.  Thanks so much Aunt Barb!  So on with the show!
 Here's an overview of the things Aunt Barb brought me.  There are bunches of headboards and frames (that shopping bag is filled with frames), shutters, old window frames, spindles, a cupboard door, a carnival-like wooden horse, and a few other items.
 There are 16 head or foot boards.  Some will be pieced out for parts, some will make benches and a few might even be used as headboards.  I will show the headboards tomorrow.
 There are some really great frames in all different sizes.  Nine pairs of shutters.  And a little wooden shelf.
 Five old window frames.
 A few weathered is a cool table leg and that carved board is great.
 There are 35 spindles.  Thirty-five of them!
 More frames.  I love the two identical owns with all the carvings.
And an antique quilt rack.  I love this.  I just might use this in the studio for displaying fabrics.  I can't believe all the work my Aunt Barb did to find all of these great items.  And I can't wait to get started on them.  Now if I could just add 12 hours to each day so I'd have the time to get everything done.  Thank you so much Aunt Barb!  And as always, thanks for stopping by!
