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!
I finally hit a pretty decent estate sale. I was #23 on the list, which didn't please me very much, but I got in with the first herd of people, so I was happy!
An old McCoy planter. For 50 Cents!
Two boxes of Santa mugs, $1 a box.
These ornaments are by no means old, but they're still pretty and I'm determined that THIS is the year that I will make an ornament wreath!
Lots of old Halloween and Thanksgiving diecuts.
I don't get along with real squirrels, but these diecuts are pretty darn cute.
50 cents for a bag full of these old valentines.
Lots and lots of vintage Dennison seals.
I think this sweet little witch diecut is my favorite find. When I found her in the Halloween box, I didn't even bother trying not to squeal with delight. I held her up for all to see and said, "Isn't she SO cute?!". All of the dudes checking out the fishing poles did not share my enthusiasm!
Some vintage Avon goodies that I remember from my childhood.
I've come to a conclusion that I know alot of you have also come to. That you can't possibly keep all of the great things that you find at sales, and have to start selling it. So starting very soon, I'm going to do some major decluttering, via Ebay. I'll put a link on my sidebar when I get started. It's going to feel so good to be unburdened by so much stuff!
My other favorite find. A Fortune Telling Birthday Book.
It was published in 1938, and if your birthday is June 27th, here is your fortune.
I hope fortune smiled on you over the weekend, and you found some treasures too!
