Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!~~~~~~Is it just me, or has the junking been really awful this summer? Or is it that I've been trying to be more selective and not bring home so much junk? No question about it, the sales have been awful! The junk I'm about to show you was accumulated over a period of about a month and a half, and I don't have much to show for it!
I fell in love with this bird cage stand as soon as I saw it at the flea market. But I'm not going to use it to hold a bird cage.....
It's going to hold a flower basket!
Anything aqua colored seems to catch my eye these days, so I was immediately drawn to this old picnic jug.
And when I saw the label, I had to have it! It's packed away now, but I can't wait to decorate with it next summer.
Even the box is cool!
I've always wanted one of these birdcages with the singing birds in it. I like it, the cat hates it!
A huge, super-grungy flower frog. Definitely needs a good soaking and scrubbing.
A big fat crock for the front porch.
A Norcrest owl planter, bought weeks ago for a quarter. Proud of myself that I actually remembered where I put it for safe keeping until it was time to decorate for Halloween!
Holiday decorations. I knew the poinsettias were all chippy and her arm was broken when I bought that Lefton angel.....
But how could I miss the fact that she was missing her left arm??? Although the masking tape price tag was conveniently covering her nonexistent arm, I think somebody needs to wear their glasses while shopping inside a dark garage.....
A bunch of vintage trick or treat buckets.
And finally, a Santa blow mold that spent way too much time in the back of the van, or the shed on wheels, as I like to call it. Why did it live in the van for a few weeks? Because I had to sell a snowman blow mold at our garage sale in order to make room in the shed for the Santa. If you're a true junker, that made perfect sense to you. There's no arguing with a junker's logic!~~~~The garage sale and flea market season is drawing to a close, and I am sad yet strangely excited. I want to learn how to quilt, so that I can make one out of a quilt top that I found at a garage sale, and I'd also like to finally learn how to crochet. It's going to be a looonnnggg winter!
