Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!
Aqua Pyrex mini fridgies have been on my wish list for awhile, so when I spotted these across the aisle at the flea market, I raced over there and grabbed them. I like how they look supporting this old Mr. & Mrs. Claus s&p set. What I don't like is that every time I look at those fridgies, I think about the big aqua fridgie that I left behind. The only way I can justify such stupidity is that the seller wanted alot for it, and my kitchen is very tiny and I had no room for it. I think I know what you Pyrex collectors are thinking, and I totally agree. I'm an idiot!!!
The very last thing I need is another bird cage, but when I saw this PINK and black one at a thrift store, I didn't hesitate. I wasn't about to let it turn into something like the "Aqua Pyrex Fridgie That I Left Behind Incident"! And at least now that I've admitted that I collect bird cages, I'm learning more about them. This cage is from the 50s and was made by the Bernard Edward Co., or BECO.
I need to do a bit more rearranging, but for now it's up on the armoire in the bedroom, along with my childhood globe and a Hendryx bird cage.
This barn is another flea market find.
It was made by Marx Toys in the 50s.
And it came with a bunch of plastic animals....
And a toy soldier!
Someday, when I'm feeling ambitious, I'll bring the ladder in the house and put the barn up there where our daughter's old Fisher Price barn is. And then it will be a real farm, and I will have to give it a name. Any ideas?
Christmas Blow Mold Extravaganza!
It felt so good when I had packed up all of the Halloween decorations so neat and tidy in the shed. So when I saw all of this at an estate sale, I actually groaned. But I bought it anyway, and it looks like I'll need to buy another bin!
Vintage Christmas kitchen towels, and an old Hallmark tray, which will go on the porch. I started decorating inside a week ago, because it seems that lately by the time I'm done with the outside, I don't feel like doing the inside. And it's taking every ounce of self-control to not do the outside NOW! But I will behave, and I'll wait until the day after Thanksgiving. So, are you itchin' to decorate for Christmas, or have you been naughty and already started?!
