A few weeks ago when I walked up to the door at an estate sale and spied this medical cart out on the porch I almost had a heart attack.
Seriously, it was love at first sight and I couldn't wait to grab it. But as I worked my way towards it and saw the price I felt as if I was in need of a double bypass!
Yes, they knew what they had and they were going to make me pay for it!
I resisted for a while, but those legs and wheels just kept creeping back into my mind.
Well obviously the cart won out and I bit the bullet and dished out the cash. Although they came down $25 for me, which they never do on the first day.
It has been in my garage ever since waiting for me to give it some attention.
Today, between rain storms I did just that.
I pulled out supplies that every good nurse needs.
Tools of the trade corralled together for even the most difficult operation.
Twine for tying things up,
an old pharmacy bin,
and a few pretty bottles to hold little necessities.
I found these fun bottles a couple years ago at a thrift. Perfect for those little emergencies.
For now they are holding white daisies, red honeysuckle, and bleeding heart.
I picked up these cheese crocks, you guessed it; at a thrift; thinking I could use them to hold seeds.
I opened one up and dropped the lid while setting up this display. Good thing I wasn't in the middle of surgery. he-he!
Oh well, for now it will hold a white geranium.
The insect sprayer will do the trick of putting you out for that medical procedure.
One whiff and you're a goner. lol!
When I think of anything medical, the colors of red and white come to mind.
But I had to throw in a touch of purple.
We all know how important it is to stay hydrated. I snagged this Coleman cooler at our local thrift a while ago for $2. It's beat up, but I love it!
We have three Dwarf Korean Lilacs planted by our pergola. The blooms aren't large, but they smell heavenly!
I'm sure that I will use it as a serving cart sometimes, but I sure had fun playing with it today!
Have you ever paid more than you would've liked to for something, but knew you would kick yourself if you didn't buy it?
Wonder if I could write it off as medical expense? : )
