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 was a glorious day at the flea market, and when I saw this pink phone, it was love at first sight! But where would I put it? I didn't have the answer, so I walked away. When I decided that I just had to have it, I had to walk back across the entire flea market, because it was in the very last aisle. Would it still be there? Well, obviously it was, and I was able to negotiate a lower price too! Pepto Bismol pink, wouldn't you say?
An old flamingo tray, now sitting on the toilet tank. Fancy, huh?
Lovely vintage tablecloths and a dish towel.
I was happy to find one of those vintage pins where you pull the string and Santa's nose lights up. I had one of these when I was little. Did you?
And I just have to say that I met the nicest woman at a thrift store the other day. We got to talking, and I admired the cat trick or treat bucket in her cart. She told me that I could have it! When I told her how nice she was to do that, she said that it was "just stuff". I think it was good karma coming my way, because I know that I've done the same thing in the past when someone liked what I had in my hand. I felt good the rest of the day, grinning like that pumpkin, because a total stranger had been so nice to me. Isn't it sad that these days, that's such a rare occurrence?
So, did you find anything over the weekend that put a smile on your face?
