Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
Before I share my finds, I want to share something scary that happened to me in blogland a couple days ago. I was commenting on blogs when all of sudden, when I would click Publish, Blogger wanted me to sign in, even though I was already signed in. When I clicked Sign In, it said my blog HAD BEEN REMOVED!!! And that there had been unusual activity on my blog. My blog was gone, nowhere to be seen. Oh, the horror! Nearly three years of work down the drain. When I would Google this problem, I couldn't even read the answers because Blogger wouldn't let me log in. After several minutes of this, I noticed where it said something like Having Trouble Logging In?. When I clicked that, Blogger wanted to text me a verification code. After a few minutes of being paranoid to do this, I finally did, and the code worked and my blog was back. YAY! So, if this ever happens to you, don't panic, and let them text you that code!
Now onto the finds! I went to what was probably the filthiest estate sale I've ever been to. And I forgot to bring everything in the house to clean, leaving it all in my shed on wheels (my van), so I had to hurry and take pictures before the sun set Sunday night. Adorable vintage chickie s&p set.
A vintage Halloween blow mold and huge honeycomb punkin.
A filthy dirty vintage Fisher Price turtle pull toy. Honestly, I don't know why I bought it, other than that it's so stinkin' cute. And I'm reliving my childhood. And it was 50 cents.
An old plant stand. I kinda regret buying this, because I'm pretty sure our cat Cupcake will be knocking it over on a daily basis, just for fun!
A cute little Christmas elf.
Some of you wondered what it was that I found at this sale, that I had been searching for these past 20 years. You were probably expecting something reeeally exciting, and will most likely be very disappointed.
It's only an old gym basket! I remember seeing them in Country Living magazine, and by golly, they convinced me that I needed one. I've never ever seen one anywhere, except in school of course, until now.
And now it holds some of my vintage gardening tools. You know how I always say that if I wait long enough, something I'm looking for will eventually come my way during my junking travels? Well, 20 years is waaaay too long of a wait!
PLEASE BE SURE TO VISIT ME ON THURSDAY, BECAUSE IT'S GIVEAWAY TIME! I'M CELEBRATING MY 3RD BLOG ANNIVERSARY AND MY BIRTHDAY, BUT YOU GET THE PRESENTS.......VINTAGE PRESENTS!!!
So, did you bring home anything that you'd been waiting years to find?
