I am in Heaven, been junkin

Hey! I am one happy lady. We went to South Point, Ohio on Saturday to look at a house where the contents were being sold to settled an estate. The man has passed away 2 year ago. never married and no children. Many relatives in the estate. He was a furniture re finisher and what we call a hoarder. You would not believe this house. 5 room, basement and garage and all stacked to the ceiling. I don't think the man ever passed up a lamp as there are at least 500 in the house. As we clean out and uncover it will be like opening Christmas packages. Can't wait.
We are taking a semi truck and pull trailer this week to start the process. Will take about 10 days to clean it out. Will post picts as we go along to let you see what we find.
Also visited the flee market while there and found a lady cleaning out her home and purchased some wonderful glassware for a steal. Some of the dishes, the plates in front of the picts. came from the old house. The beautiful piece of Capodemonte was in the Lady's home. She is Italian and had many pieces she had brought from Italy.
Come back often to peak at my treasures.
I will have enough item to paint on for 5 years, Yippeeeeeeeee!
