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 made it back to the flea market after a 3 week absence, and the first thing I spotted was this gorgeous pink radio. And it works too!
The next town over was having a citywide garage sale, and that's where I found this white radio. Which brings me ever closer to having a vintage radio in every color!
Lately I've had a thing for vintage little girl's bubble baths and cosmetics. As I'm writing this, I thought it would be nice to see if there was any powder left in the face powder box. I now have a lapful of pink powder, but I guess I should be grateful it didn't land on the keyboard!
A sweet little bottle of children's aspirin!
With my birthday money, I bought that blue picnic basket. I'd been trying for a while now to add one like it to my collection, but always got outbid on Ebay. When I saw this one on Etsy, I nabbed it. I'm nutso for this thing! I don't know where I'll put it yet, but I think it needs to be next to something pink, don't you?
I'm 99% sure these trees are repros, but that's ok because they're something that you just can't have too many of!
Rand McNally Elf books!
I remember seeing these plates somewhere (Target?), and I thought they would be pretty fun to eat lunch off of.
Especially since that bike reminds me of one I had, with the big banana seat. Except mine was green and sparkly!
I ended up carrying this big metal sign with the wheel in the back counting down the days 'til Christmas, along with a bunch of other stuff, for two blocks back to the car during that citywide sale.
And I'm pretty darn glad I got him, because how else would I know that there are only 232 days 'til Christmas!  So, did you find any treasures over the weekend?

Wow! LOVE it all, especially your pink radio, and Countdown to Christmas sign. I found an adorable pink table at a flea market but left without it. I have been thinking about it non stop all weekend, I am going this morning to get it. Hopefully it's still there!!

Oh Carol Sweetie...
I think you got the best bargains this weekend.

I love, love your radio. Now how sweet is that? In pink no less. What a treasure and then to find a white one as well. You are on a roll my friend.

Love, Love that Santa count down. That is the cutest darn thing I have ever seen, and of course I adore the books. I love childrens books. Such a treasure, it was a big thing when we were kids.

Now that banana seat bike. Mine was purple sparkly. I loved that bike. It took me many places in my childhood. Thank you for the memory.

I am so in love with your blue Etsy basket find. That is absolutely scrumptous. I have been searching as well. You have given me hope that maybe I too, will find one someday.

Thank you for the beautiful share sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Barbara said...

Glory-ous as always, and I'm ashamed to admit that as soon as I say the baby aspirin bottle, I had a flashback to how delicious we thought baby aspirin were. It's a wonder I'm still alive.

Love the picnic basket! The pink radio is too cool, would look great in my bedroom at 1515. When I see one they are never in a great color.
Got all my wonderful gifts out at 1515
I have a tray that matches the match holder even! Many many thanks for brighten my day.

craftyles said...

Oh man-I love the pink radio. Alot of your finds go so well together this week. The blue picnic basket is great. I can see why you wanted it for a long time. The little books-awesome. I need to get back to thrifting and garage saling, but have had to get rid of so much after downsizing. I miss it so much-, but can live it thru you.
