Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
My first find is that mid century pink pottery planter hanging on the wall.
I found it on Ebay, and I was supposed to give it to Mr. Old Glory so that he could give it to me for my birthday, but I have no self control and dug it out of the box today and hung it up!
I bought this old shopping basket at the flea market, and the seller says it was used at a grocery store in Ohio, back in the day.
Now it holds my gazillion kitchen towels, vintage and new.
As soon as I saw the word DEBUTANTE on that old lunchbox at the flea market, I knew I had to have it, and the haggling began! A word of advice for flea marketers: Always bring lots of singles, because it really helps in the bargaining process if the seller doesn't have to make change for you! Oh, and I did get the lunchbox at my price!
It's even cute on the inside too. I wonder what the thermos looked like. I'll bet it was sweet....
A vintage Easter card and two little bunnies inside a red mushroom.
Another old hose nozzle for my Old Hose Nozzle Collection, and some vintage seed packets.
I was almost out of the parking lot of the flea market when I decided to go back and grab this pretty duvet. I couldn't even buy the fabric for what I paid for this. I thought it would make a nice cushion for that bench.
Perhaps something like this. But after the squirrels are done with their nesting frenzy. I don't want a repeat of what they did to the pillows I made for this bench a couple of years ago. I don't believe in harming animals, but this could push me right over the edge!
I think there's a little bit of red in every picture, so I'll be linking this to Rednesday.
So, did you find any treasures over the weekend?
