MY WEEKEND FINDS
Well my friend Nancy and I went to that big 40+ houses subdivision sale. She was looking for baby stuff for a friend, and I was looking for vintage junk, as usual. This is important to remember towards the end of this post.
It was kind of a bust! These are some of the things that I came home with.
An old Playskool Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe toy. I guess kids were supposed to learn how to tie their shoes with this. I think I'll just use it in my craft area to hold my knitting needles!
An old tissue box holder. Please tell me that they still make kleenex boxes that will fit in there!
A little Valentine girl.
A cute book.
A vintage trellis.
An old etched mirror for 25 cents! I think it looks kind of interesting there, AND I can see what's going on behind me while I'm washing the dishes!
A big box of flashcards. Bouncing. Bug. Flower. Garden. I think I just found a name for that one part of the garden that's especially buggy!
I'm crazy about this vintage Fisher Price crib toy. Actually my friend found it first. I saw her pick it up, and I said, "No Nancy!", or "Nancy No!", or some variation like that. Remember she was looking for baby stuff? Well, I had to remind her that I collect bluebirds. So she gave it to me, and ever since, I've felt like I stole a toy right out of a baby's hands! Simply put, I AM........
And so, to feel better about myself, I made a little gardening vignette, using only garage sale finds. What? You thought I gave the bluebird back? Don't be silly!
