Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
Every week at the flea market, IT would be there, and every week I would leave IT behind, yearning for IT to be mine.
But alas, it was way too expensive for this cheap girl! Perhaps I could find one cheaper on Ebay. Ah yes, but the shipping would be a killer.
Last week, a glimmer of hope. Everything on the table was 50% off. Momentary excitement, but Rats! Still much more than I could justify paying. Then I remembered that this seller slashes his prices by 75% at the end of July. But would he do it TODAY?
YES! Yes he would! It's a garage/shed to go along with those tin dollhouses. Isn't it adorable?
That hose is so neat and tidy, unlike mine, which is always sprawled out across the driveway, ready to trip someone.
GAH! Look at that sweet wheelbarrow and old timey mower!
I know it's supposed to be a garage, but it's most definitely cute enough to live in!
I can't wait to drag the ladder into the house so that I can put it up on the shelf next to my dollhouse! And I think it's official: I need some dollies to go along with the house and garage!
The watering can with the little girl and the butterfly is the newest addition to the collection.
You might have already seen the Tonka truck in my patriotic decorations, but it's a recent find, along with the two vintage sand pails. The seller was actually using the fishy one as an ashtray, and I think he thought I was pretty silly to ask about it, but he gave it to me for free! Never EVER hurts to ask....
I found a clip-on bird for the cage in the bathroom. If I'm going to collect bird cages, there might as well be some birds in there, right?!
The little yellow bud vase on the right is a recent find.
A big bottlebrush wreath, a tiny elf and a fluffy deer.
And an old transistor radio. I guess the reason why I'm so drawn to transistors is that when I was younger, I would always have mine with me, and it was always tuned to WLS. Does anyone remember Larry Lujack? What a great disc jockey he was! And what a thrill to be able to pick up that station when we would be on vacation, 350 miles from Chicago and in the middle of the Northwoods of Wisconsin! As a teenager, it was definitely a Godsend!~~~~~~~~~So, what kind of junk did you find?
