A TISKET, A TASKET, A LITTLE PICNIC BASKET-My Weekend Finds!
Thanks for tuning in to the continuing saga of my unquenchable thirst for vintage stuff! Garage sales were PAthetic, so I hit the flea market. And I found something to get pretty excited about.
This wee little picnic basket!
I think it looks pretty darn cute down there with some of my collection. I came home from the flea market with only two things, but I'll save the other one for REDnesday. I did find a couple other treasures, but in unexpected places.
FOUND: My old globe, at my Mom's house. I loved that thing when I was a little girl. It now sits on the bookshelf in our living room, and it makes me happy to see it up there.
FOUND: Two pairs of really cute vintage curtains in that cupboard that I just painted! I decided to do a little rearranging in there, and refold all the vintage tablecloths. I vaguely remember buying these at an estate sale, probably 20 years ago. At the time, they just didn't go with the decor at the condo we were living in, but they were too sweet to pass up. They would have looked downright silly hanging next to lots of guitars and amps, but I digress. Do you ever buy things that you really can't use, but you just have to have it? I tend to do that alot! I once bought a vintage fabric cover for a birdcage, and I didn't even have a bird. I still have it, and I still don't have a bird!
I think I might be in love with these curtains. Although they are a little busy for me. I do like those birds and the birdhouse though. Please oh please ignore the filthy windows. We moved into this house 15 years ago, and we still can't get that window open. Painted shut forever. Dang, those curtains really do look cute!
Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to look around and see if I can find something else that I purchased two decades ago, and then forgot about!
