Thanks for tuning in to another episode of My Weekend Finds, the continuing saga of one girl's quest for more junk!~~~~~~I think I'll start with what I found under the Christmas tree, just because I can't contain myself about the first thing I'm about to show you!
An Aqua Dish Drainer!!!!! I've been looking for awhile, and finally found one at my price. Don't the lunch dishes look pretty in there? Honestly I was never so excited to wash the dishes! Well, if we're really being honest, this was the first time I was excited about washing dishes, but you know what I mean. I can't stop looking at it, and I think the family will come to love it too, because I put away the clean dishes alot faster than I ever did before!
I got a vintage clip-on parakeet for the green bird cage. Wait, you can't really see her in there, can you? Let me take her out for a minute...
Isn't she pretty? Ok, that clip hurts like the dickens, so I'm putting her back in now!
I also got a green one for the cage with the pink design on the front. As I think I've said before, if I'm gonna collect bird cages, I might as well have some birds in there too!
Santa shopped on Ebay and found another watering can for my collection!
My friend gave me this children's wheelbarrow. We saw it several weeks ago at an estate sale. I almost bought it, but then I turned to Nancy and said "It's so cute, but where am I gonna put it? I shouldn't get it, should I?". She said "No, you've got enough stuff in your gardens". Well, she obviously went back for it. What a sneak! I think I'll make her figure out where I'm gonna put it!
I saw this Perfect Polly Pet Parakeet at an estate sale. Now I normally share only the vintage junk that I find, but I knew this guy would be perfect for one of my bird cages. Those vintage ones I shared earlier are very pricey and I would never put one outside.
So this guy is perfect for the cage on the porch. I only took a quick pic of it and then brought it inside because parakeets don't belong outside in the winter!
I also found a bunch of vintage sheets and pillow cases at the same estate sale, all still in their original packages. Reminds me of my Grandma. She always had tons of unopened packages of sheets in her closet. I don't know what she was saving them for. Guess it was that generation that kept using things until they fell apart before they would open something new!
The pillow cases were only 69 cents when they were new.
Don't forget to use FAB detergent when you finally bust open that package!
This nice lady will tell you all about the fitted sheets. I hate "projecting tapes", don't you? What the heck are projecting tapes?!?
Couldn't leave without this Rosbro Easter Bunny and his little wheelbarrow.
This July angel boy was found at a thrift store, and he will get a slight makeover for the 4th. Don't you think he needs an Uncle Sam hat?!?~~~~~~~~Tune in again and I'll share my favorite finds of 2013. It really wasn't that hard to pick my faves, because it wasn't a very good year for junking. I sincerely hope 2014 brings an abundance of junk for everyone! HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY JUNKING!!!
