There were no garage sales this past week, and only one estate sale in the area. I'm so glad that I finally discovered the website for estate sales (estatesales.net), because it looks like there is at least one every week. That should get me through garage sale withdrawal!
So I spotted lots of cupcake picks and cake decorations at this estate sale. This person was a cake baker extraordinaire! Lots of great Halloween ones.
And Valentine ones.
And Mother's Day.
Are these supposed to be Baby New Year, or for a new baby?
St. Patrick's Day picks...
And miscellaneous picks. Now normally, in the past, I wouldn't have given these a second glance. But after seeing Laurie's collection, over at Magpie Ethel, I had to start my own collection! So what I'm saying is, Laurie, is that it's all your fault! Laurie has so many cute collections. Have you ever bought anything because you saw it on someone else's blog? I am very guilty of that, as you'll see again, three pictures down from here!
So this is how I'm storing my picks. In Smuckers topping jars. Hey Mr. Old Glory! I need you to finish that caramel one, so that I can have another jar with a blue lid!
I said this person was a cake baker, and I wasn't kidding. She had tons of cake pans. I picked up this little heart one, to make a little cake for our daughter at college!
Ok, so I had to get these candles, because they look like Gurley candles. And I had to get these possibly Gurley candles because I see them alot on Barbara's blog, Oodles and Oodles. So, again, I am blameless in my purchasing habits. This time it's Barbara's fault!
I love this old Made in Japan heart planter. A perfect addition to the Valentine decorations!
Finally, I've seen these needle books on alot of different blogs, so I can't say who I specifically blame. I think I would have bought this anyway, even if I hadn't seen it elsewhere. The gals on the cover are so great, especially the one on the left. She looks like she is going to rip that fabric right out of the other lady's hands!
Well, Mr. OG is going to cringe when he sees all of those cupcake picks. And I'm going to say: But honey, it's not my fault.....
