Thanks for the links Gilda.
I did find one in particular but could not click on it......LOL
I finally saw the note below that said "currently unavailable."

I can see the fun in searching but also the problem of so many
decisions. And what will work with what......LOL

I think when I get my other items and get them installed they
should spurn more ideas............

Today, wife took her mother to the doctor and shopping.
M-i-l took her walker, so wife said she had to take our van.
That left me with the "car." lol. I was going to drive my truck,
but the car gets twice the mpg than the truck.

And my feet are killing me. A lot more walking than this fat boy is used to.

In Tontitown, Ark. there is a store called "OOPS"
I guess it is supposed to be "seconds" and the like.
But it's actually a huge import store. With lots of odds and ends.

I found a few more items there. I'll have to figure out if I use them all or not.
I put my Navy cup in the pic to show how small the 4 cups I picked up are.
The chrome item on the left is a "boat rope cleat." I've got several but this is
a lot heavier than what I bought for my jon boat. Thought it would make a
hefty spot for a hefty purse you ladies carry.

The package behind the Navy cup is some "Deer Whistlers."
Thought I could blend them in under the belly band hopefully to decrease
the possibility of making 'creamed deer.'

This is a nautical Door Knocker.



With it open you can see there is a "square knot" underneath.

My first thought was to mount it on the outside on the door.
I've been trying to find some prints or objects to spruce up the cabinet doors.
So, I temporarily attached the Door Knocker on the cabinet door with two-sided
tape for a picture. I think I really want to clean it up and paint it before I put it
up permanently whether inside or outside. Where would you put it?
And do you think painting it would make it look tacky?
I'm getting a lot of brown...........LOL

The reason my feet hurt other than they hurt all the time anyway is I walked
every single isle of OOPS to see what I could find and use. Then I did a first
for me. I walked every isle of a second hand store. I walked every isle of two
antique stores. That's 1 fairly good sized store and 3 large warehouses. By the
time I finished I was done for the day. I planned on going to a 7-in-1 store in
Fort Smith, Ark. but forgot that notion. That would have been an extra 3 hours
of driving and I don't think I could have walked another step. And I could have
worn the wrong shoes for this.

EDIT: I also walked every isle of Hobby Lobby and BIG LOTS
so, that's 5 warehouse type buildings. Whew!......no wonder.

Carl---I love that door knocker! I like where you put it, but others may have ideas, too. Since I like all things rusty (natural) I like it in its present state.

I use those little LED lights all the time--I put one over my toilet paper holder for a night light.

When I was decorating "Bean" I bought everything coffee I saw! (Don't tell hubby)---then I had to see what I could use. You should see my stash of fabric! I could stock a store!

Happy glamping!

I can understand that. I saw tons of stuff I might have bought if it were for the house.
But with the Snoozy, everything has to be a bit miniature............lol

No wonder your feet hurt. I'm a seasoned shopper and that would take a real toll on me. I like the rust look but I don't think it would tacky to paint it. If you leave it rusty though, I'd spray it with a clear coat. I think that spot looks great too, but would think about other spots too...maybe the bathroom door?? Great job in your pursuit to jazz up the Snooz.

Actually, the more I look at it that's where I thought it will look best.
And I do know I would paint it to genuine (tacky) paint scheme.....lol.

I like subtle things that blend together.
Many items making one whole and not drawing attention to itself.
If that makes any sense.

Thanks Linda. That's a good tip about the clear coat.
I have my eye on a few things for the bathroom door......lol
(shhhhhhhhh) It's a secret for now. That will have to wait for
another pay day........lol. Moving it about is also why I taped
it up there for now. When my other items arrive I'll move it
around and see which "nook" fits best.

[No wonder your feet hurt. I'm a seasoned shopper and that would take a real toll on me.]

I use the shopping carts as a walker of sorts...........lol.
Before I could not have managed it, but I have lost 20 pounds
and it really makes a difference.

I don't know that I like antique shops. I saw so many things I bought new
or had growing up. And now they're in an antique shop? What's that say
about me? One of the shops I saw a couple plagues that were not really
painted at all. Kinda took me aback. Because I have two of them on the
bedroom wall I painted decades ago.........lol. Wife has been hanging on
to them. I still have the molds of that and many, many more.
I used metallic wax that you rubbed on with your fingers.

Well, I think I would use the knocker inside. We had a great Mickey Mouse one on our door on our last house and someone took it. It was not attached down solid enough but still, I suppose they would probably have damaged the door to get it off. Anything nice, someone else always wants it.

This Snoozy shopping is really going to get you in shape! I suppose your feet "sing" for awhile after the shopping is done.

Those stores sound great! Seems you are having a great time with this and you know, it is so great to read that someone has found something they enjoy and that gets them out. SO many people today just, well, sit and complain. Love your upbeat posts! Keep them coming.

Thanks Cathy.
That makes a whole lot of sense. Not to mention on the back end where my
door is, I'd hate to lose it going down the road.

And yes, my feet are "singing."
Today is my 64th birthday so I told the wife I wanted to go to A to Z in Alma, Ark.

While down there I decided to check out the Camp Ground where the RIVER VALLEY
EGG RALLY is going to be this September. It was not at all as I remembered it. lol.
Found my spot and found BAMA's spot. After I circled the camp ground 3 times my
memory began to recognize the place........lol.

While I was at it I set my odometer to see how far it was on Hiway 59 down there
and when we came back I set the odometer to see how far it was back on I-540.
There's a about 15 miles difference so it doesn't matter much which way I go. It's 90 some miles one way and a bit over 100 miles the other.

A to Z had plenty of stuff to look at. But Saturday is not a good day to go if you
want to go up one isle and down the next. They had a few things I could have used,
but they are not cheap any more. So I came home empty handed.

Stopped at another Walmart and found a blanket like I used when on ship.
The issue was a wool blanket, but when they made me "donate" a month as
compartment cleaner, I swiped a blanket from the Chief's quarters......lol.
This blanket is very similar. It's all one color. They had white, baby blue, and
a light brown (tan). I bought the tan one as it was what the Chief blanket was.
100% cotton. And if you've slept under a wool blanket and a cotton blanket, you
will know the difference. I was surprised I never got in trouble when they did
bunk inspections. hahahaha. Thought I would try it as you ladies suggested a
solid color to offset the busy patterns so far. Still not finding anything for the
other two windows as yet. I did find another vinyl table cloth. Wife asked why
I wanted another table cloth. I told her it was marked down to a dollar and it
has seashells on it. Maybe another theme later.......lol. Also another storage
basket to fit my Snoozy cabinet that the other Walmart didn't have and some
wire storage racks for behind the cabinet doors.

I think I may have forgotten, I also went through a Dollar Tree yesterday.
That makes six stores......................and I think I actually lost two more pounds.
