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 usually post my finds early in the morning, but Mr. Old Glory is sick and so is our college girl, so everything is bajiggety over here!
I was surprised that there were so many garage sales this past weekend. I'm really not looking forward to the end of garage sale season. Because that means that I have to turn to Ebay and antique stores to find my treasures, but I won't start that whole tirade right now! I found lots of holiday cheer at the sales, including that HUGE Gurley snowman.
I got two big turkeys.........
and some smaller ones too.
An old Made In Japan St. Patty's planter.......
and a drum for the patriotic decorations.
I've always wanted one of these Shawnee cats, and this one surprisingly came from our Goodwill. I rarely ever find anything good there, but I do try to stop in around the holidays, especially Christmas. It seems like the second week in December, people are decorating and going through their stuff and donating alot of it, and that's when I find vintage Christmas things there. Is your Goodwill any good?
And last, a couple of lantern picks and the saddest little tree I've ever seen. Truly, the Charlie Brown tree of it's time!
Last week I was trying to decorate for Halloween, but I'm missing a box! Where did I put it??? I've been trying to figure out what I may have been thinking when I put the box away, and honestly I have no clue. I can't decorate the bookcase without it! Have you ever packed anything away so good that you can't find it?
