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!
Once again, alot of my collecting categories saw some new additions.
The Toy/Game category: A set of Dialmaster phones, and a Lotto game from 1937. Supposedly, kids could call each other from one room to another with those phones. Or call Mom to bring them something to eat!
The Holiday category: Halloween die cuts, an owl that will get a transformation, an Easter egg from West Germany and a musical Lefton Irish lad and lassie.
I love the little red-roofed cottage on the egg!
The Vintage Kitchen category got this vintage Jewel Tea canister, and I think the We Can Do It lunchbox will go in the Patriotic collection.
Vintage swallows. These get added to the Birds On The Bathroom Wall category. I'll be painting these aqua!
More additions to the Patriotic category. I love that those flag holders have star cutouts in them, and they were made by the STAR company.
The Vintage Pottery category is quite proud to accept that little pink Pacific Pottery vase into their little club, and the Etched Mirror category gets that snazzy little 5x7 beauty!
And last but certainly not least, a little green vintage flashlight, hanging by the back door. This definitely falls into the Why Did I Buy It category. Seriously, I think my Grandpa might have had one like this. I just know that when I saw it, it felt very familiar to me, and I knew I had to get it. Has that ever happened to you? Honestly, I think that's how most of my collections started!
