My Weekend Finds-The Blues


Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds! Garage saling was awful, but the flea market did not disappoint, and I was able to get back home before the skies opened up. You will not hear me complain about all of the rain we've been having, because I haven't had to water anything except my hanging baskets!

The color blue was calling to me. I listened to that call and came home with this old elephant planter and the little bluebird.

No markings on the bottom of that pottery vase. But that Bambi planter is supposedly from the 40s, and it's marked Walt Disney on the bottom. And do you see little Thumper? He is blue too.

Last but not least, two clip-on birds, made in Japan. And a blingy Chicago pin. For my bling jar. Whenever I find a real blingy piece of jewelry, I put it in the jar. How utterly useless is that? Hopefully you all found some goodies this weekend, that you didn't lock away in a jar!
Can you say HOARDER?

Okay I want to see the jar with all the bling. Promise that you will post it. I love the elephant. I mean, really what is not to love about elephants, I ask you.Actually the red basket is caalling to me as well. Love it. It would look fab in my kitchen. Once again, I could just go shopping at your house. When should I stop by, from Maine, how long would it take?

I'm always drawn to blue and pink vases and I LOVE the elephant. I saw where a lady bought little planters like those, scoured them out and used them to serve ice cream and deserts in, especially for kids. I LOVED the idea.

I *LIKE* that bling jar idea!!!

Now I can tell my husband I am making a Bling Jar. That ought to stump him for awhile.

Cute cute stuff. I had a Sunday School teacher that would bring figurines like that to every lesson depending on the topic. She always had some little thing on the table to tie in to what she was talking about. I remember being 12 and thinking it was junk. Gosh I wish I had her stash now.
