Garage Sale Goodies and Ask Me Anything!
I saw this beauty before I was even half way up the driveway of the garage sale! It called my name. I asked if it was for sale, because it was sitting behind all of the tables. The owner said yes. Now I was afraid to ask the price, because it's huge. 3' x 4'. I had $50 tucked away in my wallet, just in case I was ever to find one. I never see the big square ones at antique stores. I had given up hope. The one I really wanted, my Mom won't let go of. So when the lady having the garage sale said " $4, is that ok?", if I had opened my mouth and let out the scream of joy, you would have heard it wherever you might be in the country!! $4!! I'm so blessed that this seems to happen alot to me. I'll say that I would like to find something, and shortly thereafter, I find it! Blessed indeed!
I also got this old glass shelf for $2. I have no idea how old these things are, but it makes me feel pretty snazzy, almost like a Hollywood starlet!
I got two of these hooked rugs, for $5 each. Again, no idea how old they are. They're in great shape, and I have to keep shooing the kitty off of them, because it would be nice if they stayed fur-free for at least a couple of days, but I don't think that's going to happen!
A cute strawberry tablecloth for my fruity kitchen, for $1.
More vintage fruitiness, in tablecloth form, for $1.
These old blow molds were 25 cents each. The Santa and snowman both say 1968 on them. I especially like that jack-o'-lantern, because I loooove vintage Halloween things! And speaking of Halloween....
I got this magazine by the Queen of Halloween! Nobody does Halloween like Martha! Her Halloween issues are always a must-have, as is the Country Living issue. I can't wait to dive in there, because I always get great ideas from her!
Now I would like to try something here. I feel that maybe alot of you don't really know me, and would like to ask me a question, to get to know me a little better. You can ask me anything, and I will answer all of your questions in my next post. Holly at Girls at Heart did this on her blog, and it was really fun! I feel like I need to open up a bit more here so, I am an open book! Ask away! But please, no questions about politics or religion!
