MY WEEKEND FINDS
Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
It's weekends like this past one that keep me going back to all of the thrift stores, rummage sales, and antique stores, especially after the long drought of this winter. This pair of MIJ (Made In Japan) s&p shakers were only $1 for the pair.
I picked up and put down this vintage vinyl case three times. It's so mod, isn't it?
It looked so Springy, that I finally decided to get it, along with all of the stuff inside too.
Lots of wacky tacky plastic flowers.
Look at the ears on this old Easter Bunny. They're just as long, if not longer, than his whole body!
I love the floral fabric that was used on the inside of his ears.
An old biscuit jar, missing it's lid and handle, is now a flowerpot to a plant struggling to stay alive.
I've always loved the covers of old Harlequin Romance books. If I was actually going to read these books, I would have a hard time deciding which to read first: The Monkey Puzzle, or Cobweb Morning!
A couple of old cake decorations, just waiting to do The Hand Jive on your cake. What in the world am I going to do with these?
And last is a big old bookcase from a church rummage sale, that was only $5. Still lots of room on there for more quilts and picnic baskets! I just wish I could decide whether to paint it or not. My first instinct was to paint it a creamy white, and put some old floral wallpaper on the back part. Now I'm not so sure....... So, did you find anything interesting this weekend?
