Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!

Well, it was pretty slim pickings over the weekend for this junker. The garage sale season is over, so it was off to the flea market!

At the very first table, I saw these old Lefton St. Patty's girls, and I scooped them up right away! The seller only had one little piece of newspaper to wrap them up with, so I was glad that I now carry bubble wrap with me when I go to the flea!

I had just been drooling over this Lefton Easter planter on Ebay a week ago, and now I have one for much, much less.

Even though Halloween is but a memory, I was still thrilled to find these cooky cutters.

Love the graphics on the inside.

I also found this gorgeous hooked rug, and instead of bringing it back to the car like a smarter person would have, I lugged it through the rest of the flea. Which now explains my sore shoulder. But I was afraid to miss anything good, because there were tons of buyers and not so many sellers. It really is a lovely rug, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be coated with cat hair by week's end. It's Cupcake's new favorite spot!

Ooo! I would so love that rug! But yeah, we all have dark hair and dark haired animals too so it would look sorry in no time around here!

Just want to say I've enjoyed visiting with you over the bloggy years! Remember to check your e mail for messages from me! ♥

Oh, and I mention you in my post today. :)

You found some nice goodies!! The rug is really pretty. I am like you. I want to look around as fast as I can so that I don't miss anything. Thankfully, my DH is always willing to take things to the car for me!!

Happy Monday!

You found some sweet goodies for sure. Love the little Lefton girls and the planter. Pretty rug and I always say that anything that comes home with me is subject to being covered in cat hair!!

You definitely found some lovely treasures. Those cookie cutters (in their original box) are quite the find! I'm loving your rug too.

Happy Monday!

And I love the Easter pottery piece! That's one holiday I need to start to collect for :)

HI Carol,
Sure do like that hooked rug. Sorry about your shoulder, you might want to think about getting a little red wagon to pull along, or maybe it should be a big red wagon, yes I would go with the bigger wagon.
