My Weekend Finds

Thank you Blogger, for finally letting me post this.....10 HOURS LATER!!!!
It's time for another installment of My Weekend Finds! This week's trip to the flea market was especially fun because Mr. Old Glory came with me. He wasn't looking for anything there, he only wanted to spend time with me! That's what he told me, and I believe him. Or could he have just been making sure I didn't bring home lots of junk? Hmmmm......
Almost everything that I brought home was blue! I have five other clocks just like this one. But not in this pretty light blue color. What kind of idiot would I be if I didn't add it to the collection?! Because we all know that if you have a collection, you've got to have it in every color, right? And I've seen that little man and woman planter on several blogs and admired them, so now I won't be jealous anymore when I see one!

Is that kitty tin not adorable? It's from England, and I bet there used to be some fabulous biscuits in there ! And the little figurine is a Josef's Originals, and she was only 50 cents. I didn't need her, but like I said, she was 50 cents!

This picnic basket and old USA pottery vase were both from garage sales, and they were verrrry cheap!

This old tin is also from the flea market, and I think it's my favorite find of the week. I just love that big bumblebee!

Mr. Old Glory found this nest in our yard, and the robin's egg in my Mom's yard. I want to bring the nest inside, but it seems to be very buggy. Does anyone know what I can do to make it safe to bring inside?

And my last find is this movie, Anne of Green Gables. I've never seen it, but I've noticed that alot of bloggers have it on their favorites lists. Right now I'm watching Gone With The Wind. I just finished the book and knew I had to see the movie. That Scarlett is a real piece of work! So..... did you find anything interesting at the flea market or garage sales?

Some wonderful finds. You might try putting the nest in a ziplock and put it in the freezer to kill off any bugs.

I love Anne of Green Gables! But you really need to watch the production with Meagan Follows as Anne. She was great! AND read the book.

You got some really cute things!! I love the couple planter, how cute, I guess now I will have the eny! :) The little girl is sweet!!

I'm so jealous of your little Josef woman! And only 50 cents?! Who cares if you didn't "need" her. She's definitely a "want"!

Anne of Green Gables was a great series to watch. I never read the books, but am guessing they're just as good.

How sweet of Mr. Old Glory to want to spend time with you at the flea market. Looks like you found some great treasures. I think the couple planter is adorable and the picnic basket is fabulous.

Perhaps this is what I love most of summer...to see everybodies weekend finds on the blog! I have something for tins too. I love the ones you bought and you are totally right about having another clock. That is what collecting is all about, isn't it?
Anne of Green Gables is totally unknown here, but my mother got an Anne of Green Gables doll from my aunt in Canada and the book of...Anne of Green Gables. Mmm must read the book once.

Angela said...

You sure found some great things!! That is such a cute little picnic tin and didn't the birdie that made that nest work hard?

barncat said...

Great finds! I have that little planter too. :) As someone else said, you should watch the newer version of Anne of Green Gables, and definitely read the book(s), they're all wonderful!

Love your new banner at the top, where did you get those adorable little gardening gloves??

Jane said...

Wow, what great finds. I love the blue clock. Love all the blues in fact. Great picnic basket.

Creative Breathing said...

Popping in to say hello and here I find such fabulous vintage finds! I smile each time you add one of these clocks to your collection. I think this one is my favorite! I love that you had a blue theme! I do this when I shop as well. Oh my gosh, I remember the summer all of my friends read Gone With the Wind. It consumed our lives! Such fun memories! Have a great week! Elizabeth

FINALLY I get to post my earth-shattering comment:

Ooooo, I love everything you got!!!

Holly, the Old Western Gal said...

P.S. on the nest, put it in the sun, turn it after a few days, then the bugs should be gone. They should go since there aren't any birdies to chew on...

Some people spray some bug poison in a paper bag, seal the nest inside, and do it that way, but then you would have poison residue...but prolly not harmful...others seal the nest in a plastic baggie and place in the sun, but it must be TOTALLY dry for that.

I love that yellow vase with the red tulip on the front! Great finds. :)

And I agree with previous commenters that the Anne movie that most bloggers love is the newer one, with Megan Follows. It was a series in the late 1980s that they showed on PBS here in the U.S. The old version you found looks interesting too, though! And the books themselves are really great summer reading material. :)

I love your header. Did you do that? It is so darling. I want that picnic basket too! Lovely stuff all of it.

Oh, my gosh - I love every single thing! How wonderful that you found one of ""your clocks in the lovely light blue! My sister Lori has one of those little couple planters - I admire it every time I am at her house, and I am still looking for one! And I love irises - that tin is gorgeous!! Great, GREAT stuff!

Pam said...

The pottery vase is my favorite of all your newfound treasures. Popping over from Rednesdays - it's a first for me and I'm loving the people at the party. Nice to meet you! Pam @ Sallygoodin

I've never seen that version of Anne of Green Gables - only the made for television version from the '80's - now I know what to watch this weekend! Thanks :)
