A visit from the free stuff fairy...

Hi Everyone!  I just couldn't wait to show you....what the free stuff fairy (otherwise known as my aunt Barb) brought me today.  I ran home on my lunch half hour to meet my aunt and uncle and help them unload the van.  And I quickly took a couple of pictures so I could share them with you!
 Look at all those headboards and foot boards.  
Can't you just see all the benches I'm going to make?  I can.
 Look at this beauty.  It's old and it has the little casters on it.  Oh how I wish I had the matching foot board.
Look at that cream one in the background.  It's lovely too.
There were 16 pieces in this stack of headboards and foot boards.
Three headboard/foot board matching combos.
Two matching twin headboards.
Five headboards.
And one lone foot board.

And they will all be put to good use.
I also got a box of old books.  A box with wooden frames and an old Christmas tree.  A cooler with vintage jars and German bottles (my uncle is German).  And a box with a variety of nick-knacks.

My free stuff fairy is wonderful.  I wish you all had a free stuff fairy too.  
But don't even think about asking for mine.  
I can share lots of things with you but I just can't share my aunt too.  

Thanks Aunt Barb for all the wonderful goodies you delivered to the farm today!

I can't wait to get home tonight and photograph these wonderful headboards and foot boards.  And then get them stored away with the rest of my stash until I am able to work on them.  Thanks for stopping by!
