MY WEEKEND FINDS~Junk In (almost) Every Color!

Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
But before I share my finds, I simply must wish the official kitty of Old Glory Cottage a HAPPY 1st BIRTHDAY! Yes, Cupcake Sprinkles is 1 year old today! Mr. Old Glory's birthday is in a few days, and I thought it would be a great idea to combine the birthdays into one big celebration, but Cuppy would not hear of it, and wanted her own party. She looks pretty much resigned to the fact that as long as she lives here, she will be dressed up like a doll, doesn't she?
Now, let's proceed to the junk portion of this post! I got pretty excited when I spied these canisters in a box at a garage sale. Love the YELLOW lids and the pretty tulips and daffodils, but it's the confetti that seems to be falling from the sky in celebration of these lovely canisters that made me decide to get them! 
PINK! Love those gingham plates, and I only wish there had been more than just the two of them. Very happy to add a vintage bunny to the Easter collection, and that birdie planter to the pottery collection. And I had to snake my arm through a crowd to reach that sparkly clock. I knew that if I just stood there and waited for the crowd to clear out, I'd miss it.  Didn't even knock anyone over!
My first ever pieces of BLUE Fire King!
A candy cane girl and an angel, all decked out in RED, to add to the Christmas collection.
And the last colorful pieces of junk are GREEN. Can any one of you truthfully say that you have enough flower frogs? I didn't think so! I don't have one shaped like that, so I nabbed it for a quarter. And I couldn't pass up that shovel to add to my vintage green garden tool collection, or the swankiest of swigs, that daffodil glass! All in all, it was a very colorful junking week! So, what did you find  last week?

I absolutely love those canisters. Canisters are one thing that I almost never pass up (along with bread boxes, picnic baskets, you name it). What a haul & Happy Birthday to sweet little Cupcake and Mr. OG!

Happy Birthday to sweet Cupcake!! Love all your pretty finds! Have a wonderful week! xo Heather

Vintage Christine said...

I can't tell from the photo of your Fire-King pieces but it looks like either Azur-ite Swirl or, more probably, their Turquoise Blue line. If it is Turquoise Blue you're lucky because you don't have to hunt for a lid, the sugar didn't come with one! I could never in a million years get my cat to sit still for a minute wearing a hat, but I guess if you start them out young your kitty will be wearing one for years to come! Happy Birthday, lovely kitty!

Chenille Cottage said...

That Fire King is beautiful.

LBP said...

You find the BESTEST stuff! I want to go junking with you! I have one blue Fire King bowl that my neice calls the macaroni salad bowl because I actually use it for that and if I don't she will pout. I posted my finds this week on my blog too.

Blessings

GardenofDaisies said...

I LOVE the daffodil swanky swig that you found! I have a few with little blue flowers on them. :-) Happy birthday to your sweet little kitty!

Jann Olson said...

You always score big time. I just gotta say, that's one cute kitty. So patient to lay there and pose so sweetly with her party hat. I must confess, I only have one frog. I've thought of collecting them, but haven't yet. Now you've got me convinced. Love the shape of your new one. The one I do have is really a small dish with a rose on the front and the lid is a frog. 50 cent yard sale find when vacationing in Idaho. Too cute to not buy.
Hugs,
Jann

Barbara said...

What a good week you had! I try not to buy plates because I can get carried away (moi?) but I would have had to have those pink ones. Happy birthday to the cupcake!

Sentimentally Me said...

OH My Goodness, the Blue Fire King, THe CLOCK * THE CLOCK!!! I LOVE IT!

Beautiful treasure as always :)

Martha said...

You find the best stuff! I want to go junkin' with you!! I haven't forgotten about your surprise package - still unpacking stuff and having a hard time deciding what to send!

Angie said...

Adorable kitty! I love her little hat! If I tried that with our kitty, he would probably eat it..hehe. Super cute blog...I am following you now!

Hugs, Angie
