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

I'm starting this week with the intent of getting back on track and blogging more than just once a week! We'll see how that goes, but I have the very best of intentions!

My finds last week include this recent Ebay win. I just love pixies/elves!

A vintage teabag holder set.

I've always wanted a vintage mermaid of some sort, and although she's not real old, she's over 30!

A Christmas angel, hangin' out with some kneehugger elves. Why is it that I'm ready to find Christmas things at the thrift stores the minute Halloween is over, but it takes them SO long to fill their shelves with Christmas goodness? Am I too eager?!

And last but not least, that vase on the top left-hand side is a nice addition to this little cabinet over the bed, which holds some of my vintage clocks and white pottery.
I can't believe how fast this month is flying by! I finally decorated for Thanksgiving, but it feels like it's only a matter of days before it all comes down and the Christmas decorations come out. Oh I'm sorry, did you think I was complaining? Actually, I can't wait! So, did you find anything interesting over the weekend?

Nothing for me this weekend either, but I'm going to muse on yours and try to determine why holders, as in your tea bag holder, make everything look better.

Love your new vase! And the mermaid is a little doll. Looks like you found goodies again. I didn't go out junking this weekend because I need to catch up with what I have.

It's just Mommer said...

We had a very busy weekend, on Friday I bought the cutest pair of red children's galoshes and on Saturday we found a vintage sign offering to rent seat cushions for 25 cents...ball game? Love Mondays just so I see what goodies you found.

Great finds! I remember those Pixies! I also remember my mom having the elephant pitcher. I haven't thought of that in years. At least, i think it was my mom who had it. It's been ages ago.

Have a great week.

I love that vase, and the mermaid is darling! I found some goodies at an estate sale--some fun novelty hankies, and some vintage Christmas stuff. Goodies!

The little elfs are so cute! The angle is sweet.
I'm feeling the "need" to put up a little Christmas myself!
