MY WEEKEND FINDS, BIRTHDAY GIFTS AND MORE!
Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
I went to the flea market for the first time this season! It was a glorious morning, with red-winged blackbirds singing in the marshes surrounding the market, and the temperature was in the 60s. Perfect! All I got was this old bird cage, and I'm OK with that!
This little tin was in the cage. Does anyone know what it's for?
The pink tray came from an estate sale. I already have one just like it in the bathroom, but this one is now sitting on the coffee table in the living room. The sweet girl planter came from my sister, for my birthday. Thanks Mary!
I also received the blue picnic basket on the left. Actually it's an old tobacco tin, and when you were all done with the tobacco, you were supposed to use it as a lunch box.
Mr. Old Glory made that trellis/arbor for my birthday, to replace the one that broke in a wind storm. By the end of summer, it will be covered in Sweet Autumn Clematis. And it's going to look very nice back there in the secret garden when the neighbors are finished putting up their 6' fence! I'm so excited about that fence, because it will give us more privacy, and the secret garden will become even more secret!
I was lucky to win a giveaway from Laura & Michele at Vintage Bettys, and this is how the outside of the package looked when I received it. Isn't that cute?
And inside was all of this Springtime goodness. I forgot to include a picture of that plaque hanging by the back door. It looks so cute! Thank you so much Laura & Michele!
And if you would like to enter my giveaway, there's still time. You have until midnight Monday, April 11th, and you can enter HERE.
So, did you find anything interesting over the weekend?
